We’ve honored our fair share of badass dames in our weekly Girl Crush feature—”Cowboys and Aliens” star Olivia Wilde and “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” star Rooney Mara among them—but MMA fighter and former American Gladiator (stage name: Crush!) Gina Carano has to be the butt-kickingest of all. The 29-year-old makes her feature film debut this week alongside Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender and Channing Tatum in the action flick “Haywire,” playing a black ops soldier seeking vengeance after her employers betray her. Who better, then, to name this week’s Girl Crush than the female Jason Bourne?
In exchange for the title, Gina happily revealed her own Girl Crush: “I think that if I was goiing to have a Girl Crush it would probably be with Patricia Arquette,” she said. “In ’True Romance’ I absolutely love that hotel fight scene. That was so well-done and one of my favorite movies. Patricia Arquette is so feminine and so herself but still strong, and I like that.”
Sounds like a certain fighter/budding actress we know, Gina…
