Oh, girl fights… The phrase itself can conjure images of scantily clad models slapping at each other for sexually exploitive purposes, which is unfair and misleading. For instance, in Fast and Furious 6, Gina Carano and Michelle Rodriguez get to fight each other with insane ferocity that rivals any of the fight scenes that co-stars The Rock and Vin Diesel find themselves in. Pam Grier made her career in the 70s showing up in movies to beat people up. And let’s not forget the Kill Bill films, which are pretty much a collection of brutal battle scenes between women.
The thing is a woman can do any job a man can do, and that includes kicking ass and taking names. Sometimes the only person who can match a warrior woman is another woman. Here are our top ten favorite fight scenes between two (or more) ferocious female fighters.

10) Maggie Cheung vs. Zhang Ziyi in Hero
When Hero was released in 2002, Zhang Ziyi was enjoying international fame as the breakout star of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Maggie Cheung was a Chinese film legend at the top of her game. So, not only is this fight scene beautiful and intense because of the fight choreography, but for Asian cinema fans, it was like watching women on the level of Julia Roberts and Jennifer Lawrence cross swords in an epic showdown to the death.

Authorities say comedian Kevin Hart has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after his black Mercedes nearly collided with a tanker trunk on a Southern California freeway.
California Highway Patrol Officer Ed Jacobs says Hart appeared intoxicated when he was pulled over before dawn Sunday on Highway 101 in Los Angeles.
Hart failed a field sobriety test and was booked for misdemeanor DUI. He was held on a $5,000 bond.
Jacobs says the Mercedes was being driven erratically at over 90 mph and nearly slammed into a gas tanker.
A female passenger in Hart’s car was sent home in a taxi.
Hart starred in the 2011 stand-up special Laugh At My Pain and has appeared in TV’s Undeclared and in several movies.
A call to a spokesperson for Hart was not immediately returned.

CelebrityVibe/Splash News Online
has officially arrived in Miami for Art Basel week – and from the looks of it, she’s ready to party!
The actress, who may be in town to support her rumored beau, art dealer Vito Schnabel, 26, started her evening Wednesday at a private event at Alex Rodriguez‘s home. Arriving around 8 p.m., Moore, 50, was dressed in a short blueish-gray romper and funky black glasses. Sources tell PEOPLE that she seemed calm, friendly and relaxed.
“She didn’t even have a drink in hand,” a source added of Moore, who spent time in treatment earlier this year.
According to one guest, Moore spent much of her time at the party in close conversation with Stacy Keibler. “They seemed like good friends,” the attendee said, adding that she also chatted with Owen Wilson and Martha Stewart.

When the A-Rod party came to a close around 10 p.m., Moore was still there – hanging out. But she soon headed to the Chanel Beachside BBQ at the Soho Beach House, where she again was talking with Keibler.
And as the evening progressed, Moore began to loosen up.
“Demi seemed to be dancing for the cameras,” one party source said of the actress, who was surrounded by flashbulbs and was “acting flirty” with Lenny Kravitz. Another source at the party said Moore was drinking Red Bull, and: “Demi was wild and crazy and having the time of her life, in a world all of her own.”
As for Schnabel, he was spotted at the party, though the two never posed for photos together. But according to an E! report, the two didn’t hide their PDA, and were even making out during the party.
Perhaps they’ll step out more publicly together on Thursday night when Schnabel is expected to throw his official party with Stavros Niarchos at the Wall/W Hotel.

No need to find a secret spell on how to kiss Rose McGowan
: The former Charmed
star will tell you what she likes – and what she doesn’t.
“Don’t be sloppy!” McGowan, 39, tells PEOPLE. “That’s the worst. You could find the hottest guy on the planet and if he’s a bad kisser, it just doesn’t work.”
The actress hosted Cosmopolitan and Maybeline’s Kisses for the Troops event on Monday in New York City and spilled the beans on what she considers to be a sexy smooch.
“I like the man to be medium aggressive, not somebody who’s going to shove his tongue down your throat,” she says. “That’s not sexy.”
Smooching comes with the territory for an actress says McGowan, who previously dated rocker Marilyn Manson and was engaged to filmmaker Robert Rodriguez.
“I had to kiss a lot of people on Charmed and I would kiss people I wouldn’t even know. I’d say ‘Hi, you’re Ted? Let’s make out Ted. Okay, Ted, it was really nice to meet you. I’ll never see you again.’ “
As far as kissing skills go, McGowan says guys shouldn’t bother trying to learn too much. “I don’t think you can teach somebody [to kiss],” she says. “You either just know how to do it or you don’t.”
