Earlier this week, Steven Soderbergh released the first five minutes of his much-buzzed about action film, Haywire.

And, besides reacting to the clip, may fans raised a question about mixed martial artist star Gina Carano, who plays Mallory Kane, a private contractor for the government, in the film. It seemed that her voice in the clip was distorted from her actual speaking voice.

"Steven Soderbergh wanted Mallory Kane to be a completely different entity than Gina Carano," she explained. "So he definitely went in and I went in to AVR and he did some tweaking." 

But, Carano, who starred opposite Channing Tatum and Ewan McGregor, clarified that,"even though it may not sound exactly like me, there are still parts of me that are in there."

The MMA champ's also not upset about the distortion. "I'm just honored to be a part of it," she said. "There was a little joke that I was saying that even if [Soderbergh] would have shaved my head and put Bill Clinton as my voice, I would have still done it."
