gina carano - On ‘Haywire’ Star Gina Carano, Ewan McGregor Says, ‘There’s Something Incredibly Dangerous and Powerful About Her’
Apparently, the woman formerly known as the "face of women's MMA" can act too.
Big smile crossing my face right now. I'm so excited to see Gina's "everything" flash across the big screen.
Quotes from fellow film stars
Here are quotes from her co-stars weighing in on Gina's performance and on what it's like to work with her. The following comments are taken from this "Stars rave over Gina Carano at the 'Haywire' Hollywood Premiere" video.
Bill Paxton (who plays Gina's dad in the movie): "You know there's a lot of great female, action stars, but usually, they have to cut them up so much to make them look like they're really tough."
Gina did all her own stunts and fight sequences. Channing Tatum said, "there was only one jump that they wouldn't let her do. She would have done it all. She's the second best athlete I've ever worked with. She just, can do things, that no one else can do."
Ewan Mcgregor added, "Like when she throws a few punches and alters her stance, she's altering her stance like a fighter would, you know? You'll see, when you see the film, there's something incredibly dangerous and powerful about her."
More from the Gina Carano Fan Club
I hadn't really noticed before, but Gina does a really good job of being herself on camera. I loved the video interview with her and Ariel Helwani. To me, Gina relates to her audience like a beautiful (and sometimes shy) girl-next-door, who can do anything she wants to—and do it well.
