Jason Statham believes that stuntmen don't get enough credit for the performances that they deliver on the big screen.

Statham is famed for his action roles and has voiced his frustration at how little credit the stunt crews do receive.

Speaking to Vanity Fair the actor said: "All of the stuntmen - these are the unsung heroes. Nobody is giving them any credibility.

"They're risking their necks. And then you've got poncy actors pretending like they're doing [the stunts].

"For me, it's a total injustice. [Stunt actors are] the ones getting busy. Then you have some guy standing in front of a f***ing green screen screwing his face up pretending like he's doing the stunt.

"To me, it's like a farce. I have a real frustration with that because I know these coordinators. I train with them all the time and they are incredibly talented."

It has been a busy filming year for Statham as he has already completed work on Heat and The Expendables 3; the latter will see him reprise the role of Lee Christmas.

He is currently on the set of Fast & Furious 7 as he is one of the new faces joining the cast list.
