Comic-Con: Nude Fight Scenes Aren’t Easy, Says Katee Sackhoff

"Men are dumb," said Maggie Q at the beginning of Comic-Con's Women Who Kick Ass panel today. "They think that we fight in heels. It's such a pain in the ass." Perhaps that's why so many of the women on the panel — which also included Michelle Rodriguez, Katee Sackhoff, Danai Gurira, and Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany — had no trouble recalling the action scenes (inevitably scripted by men) where they wore less-than-ideal clothes to tussle in. Few, though, could beat Sackhoff's story of a recent fight scene she shot for the A&E series Longmire: "I just did a scene naked with a gun. That's not normal."

"That's hot, though," said Rodriguez. "Isn't that hot?"

"I just met the crew," said Sackhoff, "and I was like, 'Here is my vageene.'"
