    I saw film Analyze this yesterday (*God knows which time) and it crossed my mind that I so often watch body doubles instead of actors.
    Namely, there were many close-ups in which Billy Crystal was hugging with De Niro and his fellow mobsters.

    An I notice that De Niro had extremely ugly hair cut from behind. Plus that hair was dyed. The neck was ugly.

    It was a body double, I thought. Then, on IMDB there was none listed as body double or at least stand-in for De Niro.

    He could have had better haircut then.

    Still, never trust the person from behind on wide screen...

    Why use a body double if it's not a bare buttocks scene?

    Side note: I was asked to be a body double for a scene in "Boogie Nights," but modestly declined...

    Body doubles are cheaper than top name stars. No need to pay a thousand bucks a minute for a back-shot.
