Michael Fassbender has revealed he enjoyed fighting with Gina Carano in Haywire.

The Shame star, who exchanged blows with the female actress in Steven Soderbergh's upcoming action thriller, admitted it was both fun and arduous, reported The Playlist.

"It was a lot of fun, and we shot it for two days, and I think after the second day I puked," he confessed at the AFI Fest.

"But I think that was a bug - I'm sure it had nothing to do with getting the s*** kicked out of you by Gina Carano. But it was a lot of fun, and hats off to Gina."

Michael had no issues about getting beaten up by a female: "One of the first things Steven said to me was, how do you feel about getting your a** kicked by a woman? And I was like, it's funny you say that, because that is one of my fetishes.

"But it's nice to get to play out a scene like that, and to do it, blow for blow, and be allowed to do it all."

He also warned Ewan McGregor, who also had to trade blows with Gina.

"I said to Ewan, just run. I said, I can tell you from experience from my scene, where I get my a** kicked, just run," he joked.

Meanwhile, Gina revealed she relished every minute of it, saying: "I loved the fights."
