UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is making her first big splash in Hollywood this summer, beginning with her role in The Expendables 3 action movie. And, according to a recent interview, Rousey is bringing the same drive and focus to film-making that she has to Olympic Judo and to MMA.

"I didn't grow up wanting to be an action star. I just didn't think it was in the cards," she admitted.
