Ronda Rousey Plans to Become the Biggest Grossing Actor in the World

UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey has a rare drive to become the best in the world at whatever she does, no matter what that may be.

The first female champion set out at a young age to become the best female judo practitioner on the planet. She fell just short of her goal, winning the bronze medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics.

The Californian transitioned to mixed martial arts, and three years after winning the bronze medal in Beijing, Rousey debuted in the Strikeforce organization after winning her first two professional fights in under a minute.

She’s become a superstar in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, and that has opened other doors of opportunity. After she became a household name for her fighting ability, quick wit, infectious smile and intense attitude about competition, Hollywood came calling.

She’s since appeared in The Expendables 3, Fast & Furious 7, and will star in upcoming films such as Entourage. Rousey’s a perfectionist, and she plans to become as good at acting as she is at finishing a fight by armbar.

“It’s hard to say,” said Rousey when recently asked how she thought she did in the Expendables 3 feature film. “With acting, I feel like I’m so new that I can’t really say if it was good or bad. I just did the best that I could, and that’s the best that I could do. I know that I have a lot of room to improve. I’m working just as hard at acting as I would anything else.

“I don’t do anything to be okay at it. Everything, I try to do it to be the best in the world at it,” said Rousey. “When I was bartending I wanted to be the best in the world. After I’m done with MMA, my next goal is to become the highest grossing actor in the world.”

    Is there someone telling her to speak? I would think by now any common person would but a cork in it. Sorry Rhonda, but most people still don’t know the “best” in the world.

  • Christina

    I really like Ronda but she’s never going to be close to the highest grossing actor. But she may, with careful placement, be able to do enough movies to be able to very comfortably retire at a young age. I wish her luck but only after she’s through fighting and beats Cyborg.

  • RondaCan’tAct

    Well, after seeing her “act” it’s pretty clear she doesn’t know how to act. So good luck with that one…LOL

  • uncle

    Highest paid actor ,sure in B level movies

    • Kingston Hawke

      She’s already doing HUGE budget movies though lol.

      • uncle

        A lot of huge budget movies also flop

  • Donald Gialanella

    They laughed at Arnold before he became the highest-grossing actor in spite of his accent and his muscled physique which was considered a drawback in his early career. He talks about how many times he was rejected by movie agents and studios in the doc film “Being Arnold”

    • earlsimmons

      ok….not sure what this has to do with RR.

      • Kingston Hawke

        Means shes got a shot. Look at what Rock pulled off. Id of never seen that coming. And she was better in Expendables than he was in The Scorpian King.

        • uncle

          Rock has a better personality

        • earlsimmons

          Rock was a huge name known from the WWF days. She is not a common name. And better in Expendables than the scorpion king?!? Wtf your using your opinion as facts. Your a clown bro.

        • uncle

          You act like she won a Oscar in Expendables.

        • TwoFirstNames

          The Rock was FAR better in The Scorpion King. WTF are you smoking?

      • Caminelli

        It’s a direct parallel. All you clowns want RR to look like Jennifer Anniston.

        • Eric Pope

          Our you her father or brother lol,wipe ur nose u got some brhonda stuff
          on it

          • Caminelli

            Are or Our? Dumbass. You can’t even write effectively..what “our” you going to say next? Idiot

          • Eric Pope

            You do mean spell effectively .first efectively is wrong adjective to use when critising someone’s grammars; should have said use proper grammar. Secondly you can’t write on a computer or smartphone. My our are was my HTC one auto correct you really dumbass

          • Eric Pope

            And you our still a brown nosing uncle Dana fell a tio giving Rhonda vag fart inhaling dumbass

  • John Youwer

    How about with all the money she had made, she go get that nasty mole taken off her gross looking face.

  • Jason Priest

    Hahahaaa! Next: Ronda Rousey in “Toxic Avenger: Part 6”

    • coupdegrass

      You made my day with your Toxic Avenger reference

  • lololwhat

    Rhonda sorry to say but she is unattractive. Her voice is annoying. Her attitude isn’t helping much… she to much of a man with her “I’m the best” comment

    Gina carano on the other hand her acting isn’t the best. But she still very cute. Most attractive than most of the ufc roster.

    • uncle

      If she had a great attitude everybody would be happy for her .Taking that coach
      job was terrible for her image. Look at GSP he is awesome people want to see him do well

    • Caminelli

      Yeah. Instead of training hard she should be working out on the elliptical in order to muscle tone so you and your friends can talk about how gorgeous the ufc champ is. Your a douche

  • Frank Hogan

    Yeah their right , She will be the grossest actress in hollywood, this bitch is ugly

    • Caminelli

      I’m sure your chick is a Brazilian model..ha

  • David Huenecke

    I don’t see it happening. She doesn’t have the charisma. And the fact that she likes to dip out early on ufc interviews means she doesn’t have the patience to do Hollywood interviews. She’s been in one movie and it tanked in the box office sooo not really off to a good start.

  • julian moran

    good luck.

  • HeavYMetaL65

    After seeing expendables 3, I say don’t hold your breath. Her acting SUCKS!

  • dandogood

    Rhonda’s career will be in porn after implants and losing some weight.

  • drkdisciple

    “Biggest Grossing Actor “haha she is funny ….perhaps she would be a stand up comic instead of an actress!

  • TrentSki

    Agreed, after seeing her in expendables 3, don’t expect her acting career to go very far

  • TwoFirstNames

    *Highest Grossing Actor

  • MightyMongol

    I saw her in Expendables 3. She cannot act. None of her scenes felt natural.

  • Skyler

    Her acting in Furious Seven was so sad it was cringe-worthy.

  • Mary Carlisle

    this girl is buying into her own hype! shes gonna fall hard when her acting career goes south very soon she better bask in the glory as ling as dana white can market her so well .

  • Mary Carlisle

    she is the most arrogant cocky deslusional Ive ever met

  • Jonnika Bennett

    My question is can she actually fight or is that her one and only trick, the armbar? And as for her acting let’s just not go there. She needs to stick to the one and only thing she is mediocre at, the armbar.

  • john

    Ronda is a legit bitch. Even in MMA she’s unbearable and that’s one of the few jobs in the world where being a bitch can be acceptable. Never saw Expendables 3, but she’s got a long ass way to go to be the “highest grossing actor in the world” after only being in a less than 2 minutes of footage fight scene in Furious 7. I’m surprised her bitchy ego even let the writers make that scene out to her losing to someone like Letty. Must be her inner superstar actress she keeps talking about…
