Charlize Theron is no stranger to playing a badass who does the ass-kicking in her films, but should she step into a WWE ring, she would be ready to get her ass kicked.
Joining Kofi Kingston to promote her new film "The Old Guard," Theron discussed learning martial arts for her role and how martial arts, unlike wrestling, isn't all that different from ballet.
"I have zero martial arts background. I do have a background in ballet, I was a ballerina for the first part of my life, that was my first career. Strangely, I was a physical storyteller before I was a verbal one. There is an element of being able to play in the genre that reminds me a lot of my first career as a dancer and transforming and being emotional and telling an emotional story but never using your voice, just using your body. That, to me, is very similar, the discipline of ballet reminds me of the discipline of martial arts," she said.
Theron went on to say that she couldn't master martial arts in a short period, but she got comfortable doing certain things and making the fight scenes looking believable in her role as Andy.
Upon hearing about her ballet background and the discipline used on set for martial arts training, Kofi stated that Charlize would make a great WWE Superstar, saying he'd love to see her against someone like Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks, Bayley, or Charlotte Flair.
Happily accepting the invite to get into the ring, Charlize asked, "When and where? I know we're in a crisis situation right now, so it's not anytime soon, but that sounds awesome. I will get my ass kicked, and that will be really entertaining for everybody to watch because I am a mere actor, but it would be so much fun."
If Snooki can have a match at WrestleMania, Charlize Theron would certainly fit right in.
Charlize's new film, "The Old Guard" is currently streaming on Netflix.
