Former WWE star, Eve Torres, stars in the upcoming film, ‘Skiptrace,’ with Jackie Chan and Johnny Knoxville.

In Skiptrace, fists and feet are flying in this explosive action-comedy starring Jackie Chan and Johnny Knoxville. For years, by-the-book Hong Kong detective Benny Chan (Jackie Chan) has tried to avenge his partner’s murder at the hands of a drug lord. When Benny learns that freewheeling American gambler Connor Watts (Knoxville) has the evidence he needs, he teams with Connor to get justice. The film co-stars Fan Bingbing and Eve Torres and is directed by Renny Harlin (Die Hard 2, Cliffhanger, The Long Kiss Goodnight and Deep Blue Sea). Torres recently discussed how she went from USC honors student to Clipper dancer, WWE mega-star to Jackie Chan co-star.

I wanted to talk a little bit about your younger years because that always fascinates me. I saw that you grew up in Denver and went to USC on a scholarship. What drew you to USC besides the scholarship?

Torres: I had some family that lived in Los Angeles. It was my way of getting away from home but still being connected. When I visited USC, I actually fell in love with it. I always had a vision of being a part of the entertainment world and Los Angeles is the place to do that. I was thinking long term as Los Angeles as being the place I wanted to be.

You had entertainment aspirations, but you majored in engineering.

That’s my joke: ‘I majored in engineering so I could become a wrestler.’ Engineering was the choice I made for school because I didn’t want to combine the two. School was one thing and entertainment was something I was going to pursue after. That was pretty clear in my mind. I knew I didn’t want to dabble in entertainment at all when I was in college. I had seen it happen too many times when you’re in college and an opportunity comes up, you take it and you have to take time off and you never go back to school. It was a priority to finish my education first. Finishing my education is what gave me the courage to pursue entertainment. No matter what, I had something to fall back on if entertainment didn’t work out. Once I got that degree, I felt that I could give it all I got and go for anything. I was always math and science driven so engineering was a perfect fit in that way, but it wasn’t necessarily my calling.

(Eve’s part starts at 19 min)

Billy Donnelly welcomes former WWE Divas Champion Eve Torres Gracie to the show to chat about her new film SKIPTRACE, starring Jackie Chan and Johnny Knoxville, and the current state of women’s wrestling. But, before that conversation, he weighs in on the Talking Smack confrontation that the wrestling world is buzzing about – Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz. Was it a work? Was it a shoot? Some perspective is offered up on what went down between the two. Plus, Finn Balor’s injury and the future of the Universal Title, the official call-up of Bayley from NXT to the main roster and plenty more are part of this week’s jam-packed Intelligent Wrestling Conversation.

Whether it was working for WWE or teaching women empowerment at the Gracie Academy, needless to say Eve Torres is no stranger to physicality.

Her athletic background would come in handy squaring off with Jackie Chan in the movie Skiptrace, in select theaters and On Demand Sept. 2. The film is already a hit in China, opening at number one with a $60 million opening earlier in the summer. Torres shot her scenes in Beijing and Hong Kong. She found working with the iconic figure unreal.

“It was a dream come true for me,” Torres said.

“I was a huge Jackie Chan fan growing up. I got there on set and was so nervous. I was stressing out about it because I hadn’t learned any fight choreography. I thought I would learn it a day in advance or maybe even a few hours in advance. That’s not how they do it there. The whole time I’m thinking, ‘Okay, someone can now tell me what we are doing.’

“But because with Jackie and the others are so professional and have been doing it for so long, a lot of times they will use the props around them. So it’s easier for them to choreograph it on the spot. They come up with it on the spot, then they teach it to you and then you are shooting. It was a matter of minutes. That was crazy for me, but also you realize these are the best people in the game at this. It was just a great crew to work with. They have the most creative stunt team on the planet.”

Those of you who know me well know that I’m a huge fan of WWE, been a fan for years, so ya I was naturally stoked when, special thanks to Lionsgate DirecTV, and Saban Films, I recently had the opportunity to interview former WWE star/diva Eve Torres who co-stars with Jackie Chan and Johnny Knoxville in the new movie, “Skiptrace” which hits select theaters and On Demand September 2nd.

It’s an action-comedy about by-the-book Hong Kong detective Benny Chan trying to avenge his partner’s murder at the hands of a drug lord. When Benny learns that freewheeling American gambler Connor Watts (Knoxville) has the evidence he needs, he teams with Connor to get justice. Eve Torres plays a tough muscle, a villain named Dasha who’s giving Jackie and Johnny’s characters a hard time.
But of course, my conversation with Eve Torres would also include WWE, so check out the entire interview below for Eve Torres’ answer when I asked her whether or not she would make a comeback.

Rama’s Screen: Hi, Eve, I am geekin’ out right now because I’m a huge WWE fan. So thank you for this time and opportunity. My first question is obviously I’d like to know what your experience was like working with Jackie Chan and Johnny Knoxville on this film because I’ve met Jackie before and I’ve interviewed Johnny before and they’re both just such fun people.

Eve Torres: “Man, Jackie was everything I dreamed Jackie would be and more. This man is a genius, he’s impeccable in his timing and comedy and everything. But what you don’t see about Jackie is how much he cares and how hands on he is with every part of the production. When he’s not shooting, you’d think he’d be in his trailer, but instead he’s there..the first time I met him, he got up and made me a plate of lunch, he was so helpful also picking up trash on set. He was always involved with everything. And it was really cool to see him so involved and to see somebody who could easily just take a step back still have so much passion for his project and I enjoyed that. He was just so much fun to work with. You see his creative genius when you’re there because he’s coming up with these ideas on the spot and how they can make that happen and sure enough his stunt team goes to work and they just make it happen right there. And Johnny is like a crack up, he was always starting something but he was really fun to work with as well.”

Rama’s Screen: Your character is a foreigner in this film, you had an accent, and of course your fighting style is different than Jackie’s which his is usually about fighting to escape. So can you talk a bit about how you form your character and the prep that went into that?

Eve Torres: “Yes, I was playing a foreigner, siberian Russian background. And I think it’s important to say how would this person fight. And also whenever she gets hurt, where is her strength from, and so you figuring out all of those things and really kind of buckling down this character. I’m glad that they’ve kind of listened to a little bit of my input in terms of what type of fighting that I wanted to do. There’s a little bit more of slugging it out and a little bit more of grabbing people and a little bit more grip to it. But it’s fun to watch. I was happy that they were open to not just doing the same type of choreography for everything.”

Rama’s Screen: Which costume was more exciting, the one you wore on the ring or the one you wore for this movie, for your character, Dasha?

Eve Torres: “I love Dasha’s costume, I kind of wanted to take it home but they wouldn’t let me have it, which is life, we go on. But the costume is a big part of it, they did a great job with the costume, I felt pretty badass.”

Rama’s Screen: How has that transition been for you.. from WWE to now acting in series and movies, how has that transition been for you?

Eve Torres: It’s a really fun but challenging transition because a lot of things do cross over especially in terms of stuntwork and fighting in films. Wow, I’m actually able to apply some things that I’ve learned from WWE and especially my character building and how this character fights, all of those things I learned from WWE. On the acting side, it’s a very different world. When you’re acting in front of camera, it’s different than acting in front of ten thousand people in an arena. And so just learning about that and just possibly trying to get better and learning from those around me, that’s really what it’s all about. I really enjoy the transition and I really like the challenge.”

Rama’s Screen: I’ve interviewed other athletes who turned into actors and they told me that they don’t like how there’s too much waiting on the film set, a lot of waiting.

Eve Torres: “That’s probably the hardest part of filming is waiting. It’s not the shooting, the shooting is fun, the fight scene is fun, a lot of work but they’re fun. The hardest part is waiting around for your turn.. there are some days when you get full costume and full everything and then they go ‘You’re not shooting, you’re shooting tomorrow.’ But that’s just the way it works, small price to pay.”

Rama’s Screen: I can’t let you go without asking you questions about WWE. So under what conditions would you consider coming back to the ring?

Eve Torres: “So ya know, obviously right now, the ego inside of me, I want to come back. But the realistic part of me,.. I’ve found my groove outside the WWE between my family life, I have a ten-month old son, my involvement in our family business, teaching self defense to women around the world. To me, this is something that I’m a part of that has a lot of meaning to me. And also being obviously involved in films and projects as they come up. The ability to have the freedom to do that far outweighs the life on the road. That is the hardest part of WWE, it’s the road life and you can’t have it without it. And so ya, I think that ship has sailed.”

Rama’s Screen: So is that why someone like the Undertaker could spend years doing his thing in the ring but I notice the divas don’t seem to last?

Eve Torres: “Ya, I mean I think part of it is women have children eventually if they want to and I did. So it’s really hard to be on the road when you’re the mom, when you’re the mother and you’re watching the children, it’s hard to be traveling. Because to bring them with you, I can’t even imagine what that life would be like, to be honest, it would be really hard. So it’s easy for men to travel, that’s why their career also lasts longer because they can have kids and still continue traveling whereas women when they start a family, it’s tough to do that.”

Rama’s Screen: How about this.. how about twenty years from now or so, WWE calls you back for the Hall Of Fame ceremony because you’ve been inducted, how about that scenario?

Eve Torres: “Aww, thank you. I would definitely make a come back for that.”

Last Monday, Surveillance video cameras captured a crazy abduction attempt in a Dollar General store in Florida. The predator, Craig Bannello, grabbed the 13-year old girl by the arm and violently dragged her through the store until the mom bravely grabbed her daughter and thwarted the attack. In this special edition Gracie Breakdown, Rener and Eve share an innovative new technique specifically for the scenario of being dragged on the floor. The information in this video is CRITICAL for women and children, who are more likely to be targets of abduction/kidnapping attempts. Please share the video and help us reach those whose lives may depend on it. And if anyone has contact with the mother/daughter in the video, please have them contact the Gracie Academy so we can sponsor them to come to California for some training.
