Vivica A. Fox dropped two dress sizes while undergoing intense training for her fight scene with Uma Thurman in Kill Bill: Vol. 1.

The actress played assassin Vernita Green in Quentin Tarantino’s 2003 revenge thriller, and in one memorable moment from the movie, Fox’s character has a fight to the death with Thurman’s scorned protagonist Beatrix ‘The Bride’ Kiddo.

The 55-year-old reflected on the intense preparation she underwent to get herself ready for the complex scene, and revealed that she worked out so much she dropped a few dress sizes.

“Oh my God, I trained for six months. I literally went from a size 8 to a size 2,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “It was intense and gruelling, but I loved every single bump and bruise.”

And the actress certainly had a lot of bumps from her physical encounter with Thurman.

“I’ll never forget the fourth and final day of filming the fight; I counted 30 bruises on my body, and I was proud of every single one of them. I earned them,” Fox gushed.

During the fight scene, former assassin Beatrix finally kills Vernita with a knife to the heart, and Fox revealed that it was done without any special effects, just editing trickery.

“We actually did that in two takes. I nailed it on the first take, and Quentin couldn’t believe it. He was like, ‘Your hair even died in slow motion. It was wet and stuck…'” she laughed. “If you look at how I go out… he went, “That’s beautiful!”

Vivica A. Fox would love to reunite with Uma Thurman and Quentin Tarantino for Kill Bill Vol. 3.

The actress played assassin Vernita Green in Kill Bill Vol. 1 back in 2003, with her brutal showdown against Thurman’s Beatrix Kiddo sparking the possibility of a third movie in the saga involving her character’s daughter.

Tarantino himself has previously teased the idea of following Nikki, played by Ambrosia Kelley, as she avenges her mother’s death, and Fox is on board with the rumoured project.

“Oh my gosh, I can’t wait. It rears its ugly head every couple of years,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “They’ll say, ‘So, Vivica, Kill Bill 3, they’re trying to make a sequel to all your movies,’ and I’m like, ‘I think they’re waiting for my daughter to grow up.’ And then you always hear that Quentin falls in and out of love with Hollywood. He’s like, ‘I’m done, I’m back, I’m done.'”

Fox confirmed that Tarantino and Thurman have been in talks to discuss a third Kill Bill movie, and she’s looking forward to her character getting her long-awaited revenge.

“So, the latest I’ve heard is that him and Uma have been talking, and I’d love for them to figure it out (sic). Quentin is great with flashbacks and figuring out some kind of way to make his characters alive again in a film. So, I’m really hoping that Vernita Green gets her revenge,” the 55-year-old added.
