We all know country girls aren’t afraid to get down and dirty, and do what needs to be done! It’s no surprise there are similarities between action star actresses and country girls. After all, country girls are into action. It’s all about country girls and being the tough chicks they are, and it’s is a huge common trait action actresses have so we decided to round up a list of a few action actresses that have serious country girl skills.
Is any Hollywood action actress list complete without a mention of Michelle? She’s been in a handful of action films and never disappoints. It’s clear Michelle isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty and probably why she’s been known to play the tough girl role more than once. Instead of playing the ‘pretty’ Hollywood roles, Michelle goes for the parts that will most likely require her to get dirty and not be afraid to work with what she’s got.
Again, we couldn’t include an action actress list without mentioning Jolie. Angelina is also known for playing action-packed roles that require her to get real (in terms of little glam involved), sweat, and not stay clean. Angelina definitely shows country girl skills by embracing who she is and taking the action roles in strides. In true country girl fashion, she worries less about getting a role that has a lot of glam and more about a role that will require her to get really involved.
Another iconic action-packed actress. Uma brought herself into Hollywood royalty with her roles in action movies like Kill Bill. She shows off her country girl skills by doing things in the movies that may not typically be “girly” activities. But she owns them and shows the powerhouse she is. Uma is also trained in martial arts and swordsmanship – talk about a tough chick, huh?!
There are a lot of common characteristics among these action actresses and country girls. They’re not afraid to get dirty, put a little elbow grease into anything, and do things that may not necessarily be the “girl” thing to do. But they do them all regardless and take everything in strides. Country girls know how to make an impact on people, and it’s clear so do these incredibly talented action actresses. Next time you watch an action movie, you probably won’t look at it the same. Who knows, maybe some of these action actresses even got some inspiration from country girls! We may never know for sure, but regardless we can enjoy the fact that they have great similarities that all of the women in the world can embrace a bit of.
What do you think of the relationship between action actresses and country girls? Do you see the similarities? Can you think of any other almost country girls we missed?
