Take a good look at actress Michelle Rodriguez, because it could be one of the last times you see her in front of the camera before she quits acting. For the new Summer edition of Cosmopolitan for Latinas, the “Fast & Furious” star confessed she might just escape from the big screen, and begin a new moment in her career out of the public eye.
“The truth is I’m about to say goodbye to acting for a minute and move behind the camera,” said the actress to the magazine. “I got into this business to write. I’ve waited 13 years to actually do it. But like now I’m ready, so that means I have to do the cutoff. I’ll go into the mountains, and bye-bye everybody.”
She also assures she is determined to overcome her troubled past, which represents a day-to-day process for her.
“I had some bad moments. I partied hard. The world knew it. I feel like my growth is a progression,” the artist says. “I go forward, and I’ve had times when I go back. Just last year I had a time where I had a bad stretch. I rebel against everything, including myself.”
The Dominican-Puerto Rican star, who looked stunning on the magazine’s photo shoot in a tight green dress, and two revealing long gowns showing her toned figure, admits when it comes to her style she can just “make anything sexy,” and feels more drawn to masculine guys.
“I’m attracted to manly men. I can’t do metrosexuals who get their nails done more than me. Which is why, living in LA for eight years, you can’t blame me for not having a partner,” she said.
On the response the actress gets from Latinos about the “Fast & Furious” franchise the actress explains she can relate to them and their personal experiences in the United States.
“[The movie] definitely comes up first for Latin folks... They can relate because there are a lot of blue-collar individuals that feel like outsiders just by being in this country. It makes you think that living on the other side of the tracks is just a better option,” she says.
