Actor Nicolas Cage, who has done some daredevilry in Stolen, says he prefers to do his own stunts rather than using a body double.

"I know how important it is for actors to do their own stunts, because the audiences really care, especially with this kind of a movie. I'm not afraid of fire. I work well with it," Cage said in a statement.

"I'm not an ace driver by any stretch of imagination, but I've done this long enough to realize I'm a good driver," he added.

Stolen, which released Thursday, tells the story of a thief who gets involved in a frantic search for his kidnapped daughter. It is directed by Simon West.
