Carano: I’m training to get into a bikini

by Fred Topel | source:

John Stockwell’s done a lot of tropical action. Will we see you in a bikini?

[Laughs] I don't know, I’ll have to wait and see. I’m definitely training to get into a bikini right now so we will definitely wait and see.

Would it be hard to fight in a bikini without any padding?

No, I didn’t wear any padding on Haywire. One thing about being blessed about coming from MMA is you really put your body through the whole grind. When I enjoy doing something, I don’t mind if it hurts.

If you go back to fighting could you use more of what you’ve learned in movies?

Oh yeah. I know that sounds maybe ridiculous probably to some people, but I’m throwing spinning back kicks and all sorts of stuff. Walking into the stunt gym, you’ve got nothing but the most passionate people about mixed martial arts just using these martial arts to make fight scenes look great. They don’t have a limit on oh, I’m just a Muay Thai fighter, I’m just a Jujitsu fighter. No, they’re thinking so over the top so it’s really been kind of a super refreshing thing for me to see because one of the biggest elements in fighting is being creative. That’s one thing that I might have been lacking in my cage fighting is being creative and remembering to be fresh and creative.

You haven’t announced whether or not you’re retiring from MMA yet, have you?

No, I haven’t. I think it’s really nice for me to get into this new career. I know I can’t make a living fighting, nor would I want to make a living fighting for the rest of my life. Plus it’s been a decade now. I don't know if you’ve been reporting or doing something for 10 years, but after you do it long enough and you find something else to put your energy towards, it’s just like starting over but it’s fresh and you have the energy all of a sudden to do it.

John Stockwell is a B-movie director whose movies don't even get released in theaters anymore. This movie will likely go straight to video or VOD.

You've poisoned the thread. It's abhorrent to objectify women in such a manner!
