Arnold Schwarzenegger has paid tribute to the man who made him look tough
in CONAN THE BARBARIAN - by presenting him with a prestigious award.
The pair have remained friends after TERRY LEONARD doubled for Arnie in
the movie, which made the stuntman's achievement extra special when the action
man actor handed it over at this weekend's (01JUN03) Taurus World Stunt Awards
Arnie said, "He was like the only guy in those days who had a body good
enough to double me."
Harrison Ford was also honoured for his body of work, but he admitted he
still has to hand over to his stunt double when it comes to the really tricky
He explains, "I do running, jumping, falling down, hitting people, that
kind of stuff. Stunt guys do stunts."
The event, which was hosted by Dennis Hopper, also featured JENNIFER
GARNER, Carrie-Anne Moss, DWAYNE 'THE ROCK' JOHNSON and Kelly Hu.
