Nina Dobrev Explains How 'xXx: Return of Xander Cage' is All About Girl Power!

xXx: Return of Xander Cage hits theaters today, and one of the film’s stars, Nina Dobrev, says it’s a pretty empowering flick for girls and women.

The actress stepped out for the premiere last night at the Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles.

She was joined by Julianne Hough and Jessica Szohr, who were there to show their support.

Also in attendance were pop duo The Veronicas.

“One of the things that drew me to the [script] was the female aspect of it,” Nina said during a visit to BUILD Series NYC. “I mean, [Toni Collette] is not on the poster, but the three of us are and then there’s Toni. There’s so many strong female characters in action movie, which we don’t see very often.”

Also pictured inside: Nina making an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden that same night.

FYI: Nina is wearing an Elie Saab dress, Sophia Webster pumps, Le Vian earrings, Jennifer Behr barrette, and Jimmy Choo clutch. Julianne is wearing a Zuhair Murad dress and Jennifer Meyer jewelry.

“The women in this film, they are beautiful but that’s not what defines them,” she went on. “They don’t fight with each other. I mean, there is a little bit of conflict. By the end of the film, one of my favorite themes is that they end up learning that they need one another. They’re stronger if they build each other up and work together. I think that’s such an important message for not only women but for girls watching this film.”

“There are women that go to MIT and join the NSA and are in very high positions in the government and are very smart,” Nina added. “I’m happy that I got to play one and reflect that on film.”
