Gimpel who has taken hits as a stunt double for stars like Helen Hunt, Annie Potts, and Sally Field throughout her 40-year Hollywood stunt career says at her ripe age of 67, she can still run circles around youngins in the biz.
Says Gimpel: I can do anything 20-year-old stunt doubles can do. I may be a little slower, but Im still in the fight. I stay in great shape and workout just as hard, so I can stay in the stunt business for many more years.
But its not just her fit five-foot frame that helps Gimpel kick Hollywood butt, its her years of true stunt- tastic experience.
She explains, Ive done every stunt you can imagine. Ive fallen down stairs, been in plane crashes, and done tons of fight scenes, which are my favorite. I can do it all!
Gimpel hopes to motivate other adrenaline junkies and stunt performers with her new exercise video, StuntBlasters Workout, which comes out tomorrow (May 15).
