The likelihood of an actual sharknado attack seems pretty far-fetched, right? Well, not according to Sharknado 2 star Tara Reid.
The 38-year-old actress told GQ Magazine
, that the premise of SyFy's campy TV movie is not all that improbable. This of course according to her "research."
"You know, it actually can happen," she tells the mag. "I mean, the chances of it happening are very rare, but it can happen actually. Which is crazy."
The fun doesn't stop there. She adds, "Not that it-- the chances of it are, like, you know, it's like probably 'pigs can fly.' Like, I don't think pigs could fly, but actually sharks could be stuck in tornadoes. There could be a sharknado."
This isn't the first time Tara has given us her scientific explanation about sharks.
"I looked up sharks on the internet and I see what sharks and I'm like 'Oh, a whale and a shark have sex,' and I'm like wait, 'How does a whale and a shark have sex,'" she said during an after chat about Sharknado on Discovery in January. "I didn't realize whales are mammals and sharks are animals they have nothing to do with each other."
That one is quite a head-scratcher.
The first Sharknado drew over 2 million viewers and countless tweets last summer. In the highly anticipated sequel, a sharknado devastates New York. You can catch Tara along with co-stars Ian Ziering, Vivica Fox and Mark McGrath in Sharknado 2 on Syfy July 30.
