Never be ashamed of what or how you feel… just be honest.
– Jaimie Alexander
Just for fun, I’m really goofy and I would love to do some stupid comedy. I’m talking, like, crazy, out there, Will Ferrell type of thing. I love it; I think those movies are so funny.
I actually read ‘Wonder Woman,’ and here’s the thing about her: she’s more of a physical presence than anything else. You don’t get to really know her on the inside.
Chris Farley, I was a huge fan of his growing up. I would love to do something kind of slapstick and funny, maybe where I could change my look even a little bit.
When I was training, I trained with my younger brother Brady. I would wrestle some of my friends, who I had grown up with, which showed me some moves, but it was never a full on match. When I went to competitions, there were other girls, so I always wrestled girls.
I was cast in ‘Thor’ back in 2009, so it sort of took me out of the running for anything tied to DC Comics.
I’m probably one of the worst actors as far as preparation goes, because I actually don’t prepare. I find it easier to read the script and whatever hits me in my stomach, like deep down, I just go with it. And the director kind of molds me whether to go right or left with it.
I think that when people look at me, and they look at my height and my voice and my coloring, they automatically think, ‘Tough.’
I’ll say this, I’m no stranger to working with a foreign cast, foreign directors, that sort of thing. I love it, because I think that when you have people from different countries, it sort of brings everyone together, it’s more of a worldly film.
I’m pretty healthy, most of the time.
I will never be a waif. I want to market myself as a healthy-looking woman who is an action-star kind of girl.
There was one time I wrestled two boys and I beat them both! They weighed a lot less than I did and I think they didn’t want to hurt a girl, so I don’t know if I really won – I’d like to think I did.
