Jean-Paul Belmondo always makes his own stunts, sometimes is going smoothly and sometimes it's the accident.

Belmondo likes making stunt because he likes taking risks but his stunts were often criticized because Jean-Paul Belmondo was more considdered as a stunt man than a actor. When he brought out a film,  people talked more about his stunts than his film.

Today, belmondo has decided to renounce to stunts because he think that he’s grown out of that kind of thing. He doesn’t want to risk his lif any longere because he is grandfather.

(Except all those that i made when he was in the conservatory) He made his first stunts for the ceremony "United Artist". A Yugoslav funambulist inform him to ride with a motorbike on a wire.The day before the ceremony, Belmondo felt flat on one's face. Bouglione (the circus director where Belmondo trained oneself) recommend him to do something to begin again but Belmondo has prefer to wait next day.

It's on the shooting of "That man from Rio" that Jean-Paul Belmondo conclusively prove his great capacity to make stunt .
All dangerous scenes were preparing by Gil Delamare. Normally, Gil should have do all stunts but Belmondo insist on doing it.
Gil Delamer said: "It's the best stuntman that i train, he 's better than me"

It'on the shooting of "Ho" that Belmondo met Remy Julienne.
