Gina Carano, star of ‘Fast & Furious 6′: ‘I’m more of a Pride & Prejudice type girl’

Am I the only straight woman around here who wouldn’t mind going to bed with Gina Carano? She gets me going like a Fassbender or a Cumberbatch. She’s sexy, she’s tough, she’s strong, she’s curvy, and she owns who she is. I wouldn’t mind having a go with that. Damn. Anyway, these photos are from the UK premiere of Fast & Furious 6 two nights ago. I was going to add Gina into yesterday’s post but I kept waiting to see if we would get any photos of Gina and Henry Cavill together – he was at the premiere to support his girlfriend. But we didn’t get the pics – you can see some of just Henry here. I like how they’ve been doing red carpets together and they seem happy to come out and support each other’s projects. I hope Gina goes on the road with Henry when he promotes Man of Steel. COME ON!! Please!!

But really I’m just writing about Gina right now because A) we have these photos of her, B) the Met Gala sucked all of the other gossip out of this week and C) because I recently read a quote from Gina that shocked me. Did you know that Gina isn’t really all that into action movies? She’s actually more of a Jane Austen girl. From Total Film:

TF: Had you seen the previous Fast & Furious films in the franchise when you got cast in F&F 6?

Gina: “No, I needed a bit of catching up – definitely. I’m more of a Pride And Prejudice type girl! It was like, “Oh cool. I’ve got some movies to watch.””

TF: Do you see Dwayne Johnson as a kindred spirit, given you both came from sports backgrounds?

Gina: “Yes. People don’t give what he’s done – carrying film after film after film – enough respect. It takes a lot to carry a film and hold your s–t together, and he’s done that. He’s also worked on the craft of acting, which gets better. Everybody’s attacked him; that’s what they do when you start. They attack you and they pick out your weaknesses.”

[From Total Film]

In the same Total Film interview (which was published a few weeks ago, my bad), Gina talked about being interested in perhaps playing Wonder Woman at some point. Gina said, “Actually, I think that would be fascinating if done correctly, if they did it more in a way where they’re humanising her. She comes from an all-female planet – something the world hasn’t seen. I just think that there’s so much story there.” The geeks at Total Film note that Wonder Woman actually doesn’t come from an all-female planet, she comes from a hidden, secret all-female island on earth. Whatever, y’all. I just want Gina to have a lasso of truth.

    I like her too. She seems “real” in the same way that Jennifer Lawrence is real.

    • Liv says:

      Really? I think she seems bland and a bit dumb.

      I think she’s beautiful though, and I like that she’s not another starving actress.

    • Andrea says:

      I think JLaw seems real. I think Gina has a very calculated, careful PR scheme. My family followed MMA fighting for years. She is not what she seems. She is very good at playing sweet for the cameras and exploiting herself to get male attention. Don’t let her fool you.

      Also don’t let all her plastic surgery fool you. Boob job. Nose jobs. The same crap you guys bash other women for. Got news for you…Gina did it too.

      • Dani says:

        Is it weird if I ask what she’s done that you feel this way? I’m not at all familiar with her career, I only saw her for the first time after suffering through Haywire and I’m just legitimately curious because you’re not the first person who has said this about her.

      • stellalovejoydiver says:

        Jennifer Lawrence got a nose job as well.

      • KitKit says:

        Here’s Andrea pulling crap out of her mouthhole again, I mean seriously,,,, every time I read your desperate comments I roll my eyes. You’re so full of it, just admit you don’t like her and move on. What PR scheme are you talking about? Is there some kind of conspiracy or propaganda going with Gina?? I don’t get, shut up. And, NO! she didn’t get a nose job or a boob job, so please if you’re so positive she got a nose job and boob job then back it up with sources and pics. Otherwise go away, ugh…

        On another note, Gina is such a sweetheart, LOVE HER, I liked what she said about wonder woman. She would be an awesome wonder woman.

    • Andrea says:

      I really hope she doesn’t go on the road with Henry when he promotes Man of Steel.

      She’s not in the movie and I’m not tuning in to see the Superman press to see her. I want to see the ACTUAL cast who is in the movie.

      I hate when celebs try to get attention for themselves at premieres for movies they aren’t even in. It always reads as desperate for attention and trying to steal focus from the rest of the cast by getting attention for yourself.

  2. carol says:

    she’s extremely pretty

  3. brin says:

    She literally kicks ass and she is awesome!

  4. Naye in VA says:

    She’s so awesome and gorgeous, and Haywire was such a good movie. I hate this ensemble she’s wearing but, she seems really…mature.
    and I love what she says about the Rock. I don’t think he gets enough credit for being a working actor. Some of his movies may be crap, but he does bring the charm every time.

  5. Tiffany27 says:

    She’s got a great PR team because….why are we talking about her? I’m not hating though, at least she eats.

    • Kate says:

      That’s what I thought when I saw her! I don’t know her from Adam (or Eve, I guess), and her dress is meh and her hair is a bit too two-toned for my taste, but she looks in no way pinched or hungry. Her arms look like arms! Also, I am more Pride & Prejudice than Fast & Furious myself, so I like this chick.

    • Andrea says:

      Her PR team has been working overtime since she started dating Cavill and his PR team is working overtime to prove he’s not gay.

      This woman is nothing special. She’s a great fighter and a terrible actress.

      Gina as Wonder Woman? No thanks. Find someone who can actually act. She doesn’t impress me at all and I like her even less since the PR desperation of the relationship with him.

  6. Vee says:

    Love her, love Henry, love them together! I agree about The Rock statements, he is very hardworking.

  7. Mia 4S says:

    So cool! I wasn’t impressed with her performance in Haywire but she herself is kick ass! I hope she gets some fantastic acting lessons and becomes a huge star. A woman who can actually fight; love it!!

  8. Shade says:

    I really hate that dress she’s wearing. So boring.

  9. Nanz says:

    She’s great. The more I read about her, the more I like her.

  10. KLO says:

    She is beautiful. I wish more actresses and models looked like that, strong and healthy.

  11. lady mary. says:

    i like her ,she has a kick ass vibe to her ,and i think she is perfect for henry ,but the only woman ,i would ever make mad love to is Monica Belluci:P,

  12. dahlianoir says:

    Now you mention it, she’d be awesome in Wonder Woman! She already has the body, great hair and confidence. Inner Nerd is happy!

    • Andrea says:

      Except she is a horrible actress. I actually like Wonder Woman. The character is about alot more than just beating people up. She has nowhere near the grace or majesty for the part.

      I could barely get through Haywire bc this woman was that bad. She fights well but when she talks it’s cringeworthy.

      I guess people like her bc she is a bigger girl? I really don’t get it. She does zero for me.

      • Tig says:

        Amen- I mean, when did it become sort of point of pride for women to “beat people up/kick ass, blah blah”? I am sure she had some work done on her face bec getting hit on does change things, and based on a photo I saw yesterday, she has had a boob job. All that is fine, and maybe she will improve as an actress.

        She and Henry, tho- pretty blah together!

      • Mook123 says:

        @Andrea In Haywire, they dubbed over her voice. That wasn’t Gina you were hearing.

  13. Patrice says:

    Gina is such a pretty, pretty girl (and aside from the insanely distracting, horrible voiceover work, I actually loved Haywire :D ), but what is going on with her hair color here?! Who gave her that awful coppery dye job? I certainly hope it wasn’t a professional :( Whatever the case, I hope she goes back to her nice natural single tone dark brown soon :) (That 1/2 and 1/2 thing is pretty bizarre…)

  14. The Original Mia says:

    Love those quotes. She’s right about Dwayne and herself. She’s just starting out. She’ll improve in time. I love her and Henry together. So pretty.

  15. lunabell says:

    She and Henry are oddly hot together.

    Also agree with what she said about Dwayne Johnson. He was TERRIBLE in The Scorpion King. Like, embarrassingly so. But he’s gotten a lot better and I remember reading somewhere that his improvement is due in large part to not being too proud to go back and take acting classes when he was already a well-known celebrity.

    • Andrea says:

      See that’s weird bc I don’t get their appeal together at all.

      They both have such monotone personalities and both seem so much less intelligent together. I don’t think she’s very smart though to start with.

      He’s just such a classy guy. He’s also gay which is why the PR teams are killing themselves to lush this. Mind you, I don’t care that he’s gay. But like his BFF Luke Evans I think it’s really sad when men go back in the closet and sell their souls for stardom. It’s sad.

      • Tiffany27 says:

        Idk about him being gay, but LORD I literally fell asleep while reading one of his interviews! How can you be SO beautiful and SO PAINFULLY boring.

  16. Miss M says:

    Hahahahahahaha to this post.

  17. Zigggy says:

    Cool, I’d love a real athlete as Wonder Woman.

  18. Chordy says:

    You are NOT the only one who gets super super hot for Gina Carano! There’s just…something…about her. Maybe it’s the fighter thing. She’s got swag. I sit around and think of her in a Wonder Woman costume more often than I’d like to admit. I also want to write a script for her that’s like Taken except for a mom, and she can be the Liam Neeson.

    • videli says:

      That’s a great idea! I don’t care how formulaic that would be, I’d watch it.

      • Chordy says:

        In both good and bad news, I just read the synopsis for her next film In the Blood. It’s basically my concept for her, except it’s her husband and not a kid. It sounds awesome, but I guarantee mine would be better ;)

      • videli says:

        Still… awesome!

  19. Dani says:

    I totally would, just as long as she promises not to kick my butt for trying and I’m straight.

    It’s weird, half of the time I think she’s very pretty and the other half I think she’s a bit hard looking but then, she’s still better looking than 99% of the population.

    I definitely think it’s awesome that she’s more of a P&P girl because I have been guilty of thinking that she is a bit ‘dumb.’ Maybe she just hasn’t come across in interviews that well, or maybe she’s just shy. Either way, if she follows the Rock’s route and is okay with taking a beating while ‘learning the craft,’ then I would definitely be behind her playing Wonder Woman… but in a few years because right now the acting talent doesn’t really hold up. She’s just starting out as an actress and I think needs to grow a bit more, and not starve herself in the process. Either way, it’s nice to see a strong woman up there kicking butt!

  20. Isabelle says:

    Hot body! Plus she’s ‘different’ than other women in Hollywood, she stands out. She’s not the stereotypical actress. Hope to see her in more projects.

  21. OhMyGawh says:

    Having met her, I totally believe her Pride & Prejudice comment. She’s unbelievably sweet and I was surprised at how funny and caring she was. There is definitely a soft side to her.
