Brewster’s character in the newest installment of the “Fast and the Furious” franchise takes a more hands-on approach, ditching sexy dresses for clothes that allow her a full range of movement for a myriad of action-packed fight scenes. She noted that she was inspired by seeing countless female film and TV characters in recent years appear as more practical people. 

“When I watch TV, I’m like, ‘Wow. It’s so refreshing that the women can wear stuff that’s not [revealing],’” she concluded. “They’re not being treated as sex symbols unless that’s important to their character. That’s awesome and it’s reflecting life a little bit more. I think we’re going in the right direction.”
