Entertainment Weekly spoke with Adrianne Palicki about working on G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Here are some highlights:
On her Navy SEAL approved workout regimen: "Harry Humphries is a retired SEAL, so... he brought his whole SEAL team to train us, and they're actually in the movie with us, guiding us, which was the most nerve-racking part because if you mess up, you know they're going to be pulling you aside and scaring you. Thankfully I love the character and she's very well-written. She's a tough girl. She's got a little bit of a chip on her shoulder. She's like the only chick around all these guys so she kind of has to hold her own. She's the intelligence in the group; she's the weapon specialist. So there's a lot to carry with that."
On working with The Rock and Bruce Willis: "They're both so different. You have Dwayne who's like an action figure and then you have Bruce, who's John McClane. They're both so different -- and they're both so funny in different ways. Neither one, oddly, [was] intimidating."
On the reshoots for the film: "A lot of that was false: We did like two days of reshoots. They added one scene. It wasn't really a big deal -- it was like the normal reshooting situation. Actually we lucked out because it was only two days. But I think it adds to the film completely."
