Ronda Rousey opened up about her lifelong love of "Star Wars" on "The Late Show," admitting the moment from the original trilogy that absolutely stunned her, and the one that made her cry.
Stephen Colbert challenged her "Star Wars" street cred after she shared a story of trying to sneak into a theater to watch "The Force Awakens" dressed as a Stormtrooper. Rousey was just thinking this was a great way to get in unrecognized and be able to geek out, but the theater had some security concerns.
She got that worked out and was able to see the film, but Colbert still had to check her fandom. After all, he takes his fandom very seriously, as anyone who's ever challenged his Tolkien and "Lord of the Rings" knowledge knows.
But Rousey proved she knew what she was talking about, dropping the release year for the "Special Edition" theatrical release and even talking about her her dad hooked her up with the original versions from his VHS tapes.
"I cried my eyes out and had nightmares when I found out Luke Skywalker's dad was Darth Vader and cut his hand off," she said. "I felt really bad about his hand getting cut off. It was a big deal to me."
"Imagine how he felt," Colbert joked.
This kicked off a wild conversation that covered Rousey's penchant for swimming with sharks and why she didn't shave her head for her upcoming film "Mile 22." It turns out lucrative sponsorship deals with shampoo manufacturers pay more than major feature films.
