Alexa Vega stars in sexy new Machete Kills image

The former Spy Kid gets rude

Machete Kills has released a brand new image online, featuring Alexa Vega wearing a startlingly revealing outfit and clutching a big old gun.

Having previously appeared in Robert Rodriguez’s Spy Kids franchise as one of the titular scamps, it’s something of a change of pace for Vega, who plays a female assassin named Killjoy.

“The first time I walked out in my outfit on set, everyone was like, ‘Wow, you’re not allowed to wear that!’” laughs Vega. “I’ve never done anything like this. I’d never felt comfortable enough, and I never thought this would be the project where I’d take a step forward.

“This was all about owning my sexuality,” she continues. “I worked really hard for it in a way that I never had to work hard for something before.”

Her character is a kind of guardian angel for prostitutes, and Vega describes the role as a welcome step up from those that have gone before. “My characters have always been light,” she says. “Killjoy is the first role to challenge that.”

Co-starring Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Mel Gibson, Antonio Banderas and many more, Machete Kills will open in the UK in 2013.

      I feel dirty and ashamed for looking at that pic. I still remember Spy Kids.

      Alexa Vega and I are just about the same she, so I had a huge crush on her when the "Spy Kids" Trilogy came out. This is just...satisfaction, being able to see the grown up version, lol. After seeing threw film, I'll probably b saying, "zOhhhh s**take Mushrooms..." xD (But she can curse now, which will also b hot.)
