These ladies do their own stunts, training, and ass-kicking in our favorite action flicks. And...they can probably beat us up, much like the badass female characters of Sons Of Anarchy, which returns to FX for its sixth season premiere on September 10th. Here's to more Gemma, Tara, and Wendy shaking things up in Charming!

Pre-order Sons of Anarchy on DVD & Blu-Ray.

Ellen Hollman

"I did a lot of knife training with reverse-grip double daggers. You take two daggers, reverse the grip, and then just fuck shit up, basically." [For her role in Spartacus: Vengeance]

Adrianne Palicki-

“It looks better when you do your own stunts, because seeing somebody’s face when they’re doing them is fun for the audience. So I did my own till my double was like, ‘I’ll do this one, because I don’t want you to die.’ ” [For her role in G.I. Joe: Retaliation]

Bérénice Marlohe-

"I did some fight training and trained with guns. Big guns." [For Skyfall]

[See Bérénice's gallery.]

Jaimie Alexander-

"We trained for three months prior to shooting. I learned how to fight with a lot of sharp objects! I have a sword that turns into a double-bladed long staff, and a shield as well." [For her role in Thor]

[See Jaimie's gallery.]

Jordana Brewster-

"I got to do a lot more action, like jumping off roofs and doing stunts. I like to get my adrenaline pumping." [For Fast 5]

[See Jordana's gallery.]

Rachel Nichols-

"I wasn't always as ass-kicking and gym-going. Because I was in Alias and G.I. Joe, I started training. Alias was very action-packed. G.I. Joe and Conan were very action-packed. It's been established that I can do action, which is great, but now I may just want to make out with a really hot guy."

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley-

"I don’t think anything is subtle on a Michael Bay set. Everything is 10 times what it is in reality. More fire, more noise, more explosions! Faster, harder…I was thrilled to witness it all." [On her role in Transformers 3]
