Kate Beckinsale 'fires guns without blinking'

Kate Beckinsale enjoys fighting "with stuntmen and hairy werewolves."

The British actress stars alongside Jessica Biel in upcoming sci-fi remake of the 1980s classic Total Recall.

Kate has a number of action films under her belt.

While filming Total Recall, Kate made it a point to be careful during fight scenes with Jessica.

"When it came to the actual hour of it, I was like, 'Oh, my God, am I gonna be the person who breaks Jessica Biel's nose?' I've only really fought with stuntmen and hairy werewolves before," she told the July/August issue of Maxim magazine.

"I think what's dangerous about being an actor who does action movies is you think, 'Well, I can totally handle myself now.' But if my opponent didn't know the other half of the routine, I don't know how well I'd do."

Kate's action abilities have improved immensely over the years.

"[I'm] very good at firing a gun without blinking, which is unusual," she shared. "That's why so many action characters have to wear sunglasses during shoot-out scenes. That's my party trick."

Total Recall will be released in theatres later this summer.
