Former Divas Champion Eve Torres recently caught up with WWE.com to discuss her newly announced pregnancy, the return of the Diva Search, Total Divas and more.

Has she gotten more acting roles following Matador?: “Yes. Being offered the role in the Jackie Chan film was amazing. I got to do a fight scene with Jackie Chan. I really enjoyed it. I feel that I got to use all of my strengths and had a lot of fun. As timing has it, it’s a good time for me to take a break from the movie and television scene while I prepare for our new addition.”

Filming a fight scene vs. wrestling: “They are very different but I felt much more comfortable doing it because of my WWE experience. There is a lot of what I learned in WWE in film, especially that specific kind of film. You have to find your character. You have to figure out how your character would fight. That’s something that I learned in WWE. There are other things that are very different. In films, we are doing multiple takes and we are not actually hitting each other … most of the time [laughs]. It’s very different, but I felt that my WWE experience really helped me with my fight scenes.”

How has her pregnancy affected her teaching self defense?: “It hasn’t yet. I’m still teaching classes and Rener and I are going to be traveling June to teach our military personnel. We are going to Fort Campbell. We have been working with the military and teaching law enforcement officers as well. I’ll keep teaching until the baby tells me to stop.”

The return of the Diva Search: “I’m happy to hear that Diva Search is back. I was wondering when WWE would bring it back. The one thing that I always encourage women who want to be WWE Divas to do is have something you are passionate about. For me it was Jiu-Jitsu and martial arts. For some people it’s soccer. Whatever it is, it gives you confidence and that will translate. That’s what WWE fans look for. That’s what WWE looks for in their Divas. WWE wants women who are confident and can handle everything that being a WWE Diva comes with like lots of travel and being tough.”

Would she appear on Total Divas?: “If they want the contestants to take a self-defense class, I’m always available.”

Eve is the last woman to win the Diva Search, having won the competition in 2007.
