She may be the “sexiest woman alive,” but Minka Kelly is channeling her inner tomboy these days for her new role in Charlie’s Angels.
Not only has she been doing some serious martial arts training to play crime fighter Eve French, but she’s been dressing the part as well. “My character, Eve, is the least girlie of the three,” she tells InStyle.com. “I was excited to just really get into the tomboy aspect of it.”
But playing the tough girl in the series isn’t all about being boyish — after all, she’s still an Angel. “Because I’m the new Angel I have to get into dressing a little bit nicer as opposed to just combat boots and cargo pants all the time,” she says. So when it’s time to go glam, her character is equally as skilled at looking feminine as she is at kicking butt.
“Eve may be the most casual Angel, but she still loves her designer labels,” Kelly shares. “I get to wear beautiful dresses and Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent and beautiful shoes. It’s really fun.”
