Video: Check Out Gina Carano Talking About ‘Haywire’ In Her First Interview in Two Years

Last Friday at Comic-Con Gina Carano made a rare media appearance to promote her upcoming starring role in the Steven Soderbergh blockbuster film “Haywire,” which is set to be released in theatres in January 2012.

The interview above with was apparently her first since losing to Cris ‘Cyborg’ Santos in 2009.

Here’s what Gina had to say:

About the movie making experience:

“I liked the physical stunts parts of it — that was easy — and then I had a lot of Hollywood 101 to learn with the acting and everything else and that was incredible and amazing and I had the time of my life.”

About the prep-work she did for the role:

“I did about two months with a man named Aaron Cohen. He’s a Secret Service guy. So we just spent all this time in a warehouse just learning about miniature uzis and M-4s and glocks. I got really a lot more comfortable with guns, which is a lot of fun. And then just his mentality — what he’s been through in his war-type situations was pretty interesting too.”

About doing her own stunts:

“I did 98 percent of my stunts, but there was one fall I just couldn’t take for insurance purposes and I was like, ‘Man, I want to do that.’ Then when I saw my stunt girl do it, I was like, ‘Never mind. That was awesome.’ It was kinda cool seeing her shine doing what she does.”

About the intense fight scene with Michael Fassbender (which was one of her favorites) that was shown at Comic-Con:

“The fight scene they showed was between me and Michael Fassbender and pretty much I’m learning that I’m getting betrayed and he attacks me and then we go pretty much throughout the whole hotel just wrecking shop. Couches are getting flipped over, vases are getting into people…He slammed me so hard against this flat screen that I think we moved the wall. So it was a really incredible fight scene. That one was really special.”

About shooting at locations around the globe:

“That was surreal. It was one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life. Running across the rooftops of Dublin and running through the streets of Barcelona…I mean, New Mexico was beautiful and it was just incredible. I can’t believe I got this experience.”

About getting the call from Soderbergh days removed from losing her first MMA bout to Cyborg:

“I was in the dumps a little bit because I just lost my fight. I still had a black eye. My agent called and said ‘You really need to meet this man. He’s a director.’ I didn’t really know who he was and then I met with him and we had a really great four-hour conversation. He was like, ‘either this is going to happen really quick or it isn’t going to happen at all.’ And then a couple days later it was happening. I don’t think it still has hit me. I’m still in awe.”

About the Comic-Con experience:

“This has been intense. I haven’t done an interview in like two years. I’m like, ‘Who am I now?’ Because two years ago I was somebody else I think.”

or a new microphone (unidirectional) that doesn't pick up the whole room.

To the interviewer: fire your audio guy and buy a microphone.

whats the point of putting a microphone under an interview subjects mouth if it picks up a guy off camera just as well?

Gina's fat, Gina's not hot anymore, Gina is some kind of sea creature. Yuk it up boners.

I think spending 2 months with Ms. Carano and a shitload of guns is more than this sinner deserves.

Sadly I could not make it to Comic Con, can anyone confirm that Gina also announced that she has signed on for Free Willy 5 as the love interest of Willy?

At the beginning of this video, it kind of sounds like Nick Swardson is mocking Gina by repeating everything she says.

He slammed me so hard against this flat screen that I think we moved the wall. Oh, I get it now, Gina. You said the same thing to me. I bet you say it to all the guys you sleep with. Fine, see if I bring you another bucket of fish.
