Hollywood is the only place you see the most unusual people, situation, and things. It’s a fascinating place to be so average joes like us are smitten by what we see in tinsel town. We watch out for the latest fad and radical celebrity transformation. Like actors completely transforming themselves for a role. Or just a fashion makeover.
Whether male celebs buffing up or female celebs getting surgically enhanced, image is everything in Hollywood. But we rarely hear of female celebs packing on the muscles. For the ladies, it’s all about the curves. Although there are some who prefer to pack on the muscles.
Want to know who they are? Let’s check out the 12 Female Celebrities Who Are Packing On The Muscles.
12. Gina Carano
Gina Carano is an actress, TV personality, fitness model, and former mixed martial artist. From her background alone we already know that she has always been one of the tough girls. Even at a young age, she was already into sports. She became so popular in the field of MMA that she was named the “face of women’s MMA” although she rejected the title.
Although she hs retired from MMA, we can still see her fighting prowess in full display through her acting. She is being put on display as the next potential female action hero. No need for a stunt double.
11. Zoe Saldana
Zoe Saldana has been known to have a slender physique. Before she rose to fame as an A-list celebrity she was a dancer. So being fit is on top of her list.
Since her breakthrough role on the film Avatar, she has been playing the tough female roles. Zoe continued her successful career with films such as Colombiana, Guardians of the Galaxy and both Star Trek sequels, Star Trek Into Darkness, and Star Trek Beyond.
10. Gal Gadot
As the next Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot has no time to relax. But Gal Gadot came prepared and gave the title justice. Before earning the role, she has been part of the Fast and the Furious franchise. So just that we know that she is one tough gal (pun intended).
Now she’s putting in serious work at the gym to become the newest Wonder Woman. In order to be convincing next to other buffed heroes, she had to undergo some serious work at the gym. With a costume that reveals almost everything, there was no cheating the cameras. For Gal, it’s challenge accepted.
9. Lena Headey
Lena Headey was scouted at 17 and worked steadily in small and supporting roles in films throughout the 90s. But she finally got her big break in in big-budget films like The Brothers Grimm, 300, and The Red Baron.
But more than that, she is well-known for playing the abominable yet complex Cersei Lannister in the Game of Thrones. Her performance earned her nominations and awards. But things didn’t stop there. She continued to play tough female roles and continued to work her muscles out.
8. Jada Pinkett Smith
Jada Pinkett Smith has always been known to be a tough girl. She does not only have that tough attitude but she also matched it with her tough and muscular body. She oozes with confidence thanks to a killer body.
With a super toned core, rippling abs, and bulging biceps there isn’t an actress that intimidates us more. She has appeared in more than 20 films in a variety of genres. Whatever role she plays, her muscles are here to stay.
