Gina Carano: I fought with Hollywood hotties

Gina Carano enjoyed "getting physical" with some of the most sought after men in Hollywood.

The 29-year-old actress and professional mixed martial arts fighter stars in upcoming spy thriller Haywire.

The star-studded cast is compiled of some of the dreamiest men in the industry, including Channing Tatum, Michael Fassbender and Ewan McGregor.

Gina relished the opportunity to shoot fight scenes with these celebrities.

"I got to be physical with some of the hottest guys in Hollywood," Gina told People magazine.

Gina filmed many brutal sequences with her castmates.

In one scene Michael accidentally knocked Gina out. The actor received a major head walloping from the fighter immediately after Gina regained consciousness.

"When [Michael] slammed my head into the wall, that's the only time I went black," Gina explained. "And then I slammed a vase right into his face when he wasn't expecting it. He didn't get cut maybe a little bit."

Gina fought with all three men on set. She found Channing to be her fiercest opponent.

"[Channing is] like a bro [to me, but] I'd probably want to choke him out real quick," Gina shared. "Because he's actually very athletic."

Haywire will be released in US theatres this weekend.
