The Daily Beast: Hollywood Body Doubles

Catherine Zeta-Jones' Double: Leilani Munter

It's fitting that Leilani Munter doubled for Catherine Zeta-Jones in "Traffic." After all, the 35 year old does all of her best work behind the wheel—since 2001, she has driven in NASCAR, Indy Wheel, and now ARCA races. But back in 2000, Munter was asked to double for Zeta-Jones, whom she resembles, even though she's four inches shorter. "I had to wear these huge heels," Munter told an interviewer, "she thought it was hilarious." (Zeta-Jones was also pregnant during filming so Munter was outfitted with a padded bodysuit.) In addition to her racing career, Munter is a devoted environmental activist—Discovery Channel's Planet Green Network named her the No. 1 Eco Athlete in 2010—who has written about the BP oil spill and other issues.
