Gina Carano may now be a retired MMA fighter, but she’s been incorporating those skills into her career as an action star since she got started. From her knockout fight scene with Michael Fassbender in Haywire (2011) to being the butch super-strong Angel Dust in Deadpool (2016), Ms. Carano has an on-screen presence that’s due to her outwardly boisterous tomboy streak that’s balanced by her eye-catching silken femininity. She kind of reminds me of a younger and thicker version of Mariska Hargitay. Despite our love for female MMA fighters, Action A Go Go has been neglectful in paying tribute to one who most strikes us, no pun intended.
Though long overdue, we at AAGG are proud to have Gina Carano as this week’s honoree for Woman Crush Wednesday!Please click the pictures for full resolution.
