Gina Carano: Babe of the Week #22 (May 2013)


Gina Carano
(Fast & Furious 6, Haywire, Blood and Bone)
Thumbs up= Thumbs down= Thumbs sideways=



Gina Carano was born under a tornado warning in Dallas, Texas. Her father Glenn played for the Dallas Cowboys as a backup quarterback to Roger Staubach and Danny White from 1977-1983, and was the starting quarterback for the USFL Pittsburgh Maulers In 1984. Carano graduated from Trinity Christian High School in Las Vegas, where she excelled in volleyball and softball, and helped lead the girls basketball team to the state title. Her academic goal was a degree in psychology at UNLV, but with only a few credits remaining she dropped everything in order to help her older sister through a crisis.

At the age of 21, Carano began training in Muay Thai, a form of kickboxing. Initially, because of her pretty face, spectators refused to take her seriously as a fighter, but she managed to amass a 12-1-1 record and become the first American woman to win a title in Thailand. In June 2006, Carano's success in Muay Thai brought her into the world of MMA. In 2008, she reluctantly joined the cast of "American Gladiators" and appeared in the video game "Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3," opening her door into Hollywood.
Fast and Furious 6: Since Dom (Vin Diesel) and Brian’s (Paul Walker) Rio heist toppled a kingpin’s empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete. Meanwhile, Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Luke Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (Michelle Rodriguez). The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. Payment? Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again.

I usual refrain from these threads, but I love a woman who can kick anybody's arse.

Real women have curves, fellas. I'd take this over one of those stick figure girls any day of the week.

UP, her smile alone would get that vote. That big grin, second pic in the black under armor is great!

I had no idea she was in F&F 6, I just wasn't following production on it that close.
I'll be seeing it tonight so I'm curious what role she has.
Haywire was alright, not a bad first starring role all things considered.

Re: Gina Carano: Babe of the Week #22 (May 2013)

Saw her in action for the first time last night in Furious 6. She wasn't given a big role with a lot of dialog or even a lot of action, but it was nice to see her serve as Dwayne Johnson's partner none the less. And yes, she does have a pretty face. Plus, fighting and winning in Thailand? Even more impressive. I'm conjuring up images Van Damme-style underground cage fighting right now.

Funny thing... For a while now, I had her confused with Michele Gutierrez, another MMA fighter. Got things cleared up when I saw that Carano didn't have a kid.

And here's a fun fact for Avatar: The Last Airbender fans... She was the inspiration for Korra's look.

Then you must positively adore Nicole Bass from the Howard Stern show.

Mh. Har-har?

As a follower and a practitioner of martial arts, I find Gina Carano's ability a definite plus. How that translates into liking a muscle-bound virago escapes me.

But I guess for some reason my comment made you uncomfortable. Maybe you feel threatened by strong women?

It was a joke, based on the fact your statement came off as a sweeping generalization. And you clearly understood it as a joke since you responded with "har har."

Up. How they haven't signed her for a Wonder Woman film is completely beyond me.
