25 Awesome Gina Carano Animated GIFs
With the critical and box office success of Gina Carano‘s latest film, Haywire, I’d say the chances of her ever making a serious, prolonged return to the world of MMA are slim. And could you blame her? With her stunning good looks and amazing skill set, she’s got a chance to be the biggest female action hero in the history of cinema. And while I can’t say for sure, I’m guessing there’s a lot more money to be made in Hollywood than women’s kickboxing.
The bright side of Carano’s career shift is that we get to see her do her thing up on the silver screen (and perhaps soon in 3-D). The downside of this career shift is, obviously, that there may be no more mind-bogglingly sexy weigh-ins.
Fortunately, Gina’s past weigh-ins (as well as other various sexy activities) will always be memorialized in animated GIF form. And here are 25 excellent examples of what I’m talking about.
Hey, that's my celebration dance, too...except I look stupid doing it.
Gina must be excited that there's another list featuring GIFs of her doing stuff out there on the internet. I know I am.
25. Gina's Happy Dance
Fact: animated GIFs of Gina Carano smiling should be boring, but they're not.
24. Just Smiling
Gina's getting psyched up for her bout...and yet still really hot.
23. In the Ring
Hey now! Gina's getting a little playful here.
22. Lizard Tongue
If you pay attention, you'll notice Gina has this shy-girl lip-bite thing going on a lot when she's put on the spot...which is cute. (Of course, at this point she could have severe facial ticks and I'd say it's cute.)
21. Biting Her Lip
See what I mean about the whole biting-her-lip thing? She does it all the time.
20. Another Interview, Another Lip Bite
Here's one of Gina in her American Gladiator days.
19. Popping in the Mouthguard
Okay, I have to admit: I'm not a fan of the fedora look. There, I said it. I'm still a huge Carano fan, but I think she should avoid silly hats (that were popular 10 years ago).
18. Gina Gets Interviewed
Even hot women need to let loose and act a little silly sometimes. You can't always be smokey and mysterious.
17. Gina Get's Silly
I've already made it clear that I'm not a fan of the hat. That being said, if anyone can pull it off, it's Gina Carano doing a sexy little dance.
16. Hat Dance
Serious Gina, funky Gina. Serious Gina, funky Gina. Serious Gina, funky Gina. Serious Gina, funky Gina.
15. The Two Sides of Gina
Once more, Gina cutely bites her lower lip when she's feeling shy or embarrassed. (Probably because they were talking about hot gorgeous she is.)
14. Cracking a Wry Smile
Ditto what I just said about the last one...no comment.
12. Gina's O Face
Who else on earth could light up a room by giving a warm smile as she's shadow boxing?
(Answer: actually, probably any smoking hot chick who shadow boxes. It's just that not that many hot chicks do it. They should, obviously.)
11. Smile and Punch
Something about this is oddly sexy, but I can't seem to put my finger on it. Can you figure it out?
10. Gina Chugging Water
Starts out with the sexy little kissy face, then transitions to the shy lip-bite when she realizes the camera's on her. Let's hope Gina isn't a big poker player, because everybody on earth could spot her tell.
9. Kissy Face
There's something sexy about a women who could beat you to a bloody pulp. Or at least that's what I keep telling my shrink.
8. Skill Demonstration
How many women do you know that would allow themselves to be weighed on live TV in front of a million people?
7. Let's Get Weighed
Weigh-ins never looked so sexy.
6. Sexy Weigh-In
I take it back. Weigh-ins never looked this sexy. It's hard to believe she let's other women punch and kick her.
5. Even Sexier Weigh-In
Are Gina Carano's weigh-ins more popular than MMA main events? Can someone look this up?
4. Some Sexy Undies
Some dude: "Hey, Gina, just how big can you make your rack"
Gina: "Well, let's see... About this big, I guess."
Some dude: "Uh, cool"
3. Chest Exercises
I'm pretty sure Gina could be an olympic diver if she put her mind to it. I hope she doesn't (put her mind to it), though, because I think I like her better as an actor/model/MMA fighter. It would be a shame to have her amazing body smushed into one of those weird diving swim suits.
2. Gina Carano: Expert Diver
This is what makes animated GIFs so great. You can take a regular old moment from everyday life and make it something it's not. Like here, for example. It's just a weigh-in, but the GIFs makes it look like Gina is salsa dancing or something. Which is awesome.
Oh, and that reminds me: for the love of God, put this woman on Dancing with the Stars already.
(PS, there's another GIF version of this weigh-in moment. Check it out here
, and see which one you like better.)
