Michelle Rodriguez, the dusky beauty of “Fast and the Furious” fame, recently confirmed reports that have been swirling that she’s a bisexual. While she said it’s not far-off, the actress has stated that she’s not a lesbian but can go both ways, when queried anew by media.
In glitzy Hollywood, it’s not surprising to find celebrities addressing pointed questions about their sexuality. Most prefer to keep mum about it, but in the case of Michelle Rodriguez, it seemed like the best way to put the issue to rest is to confirm her bisexual nature. Michelle joins the list of beauteous Hollywood actresses who have come out to declare that they’re bisexual. Jodie Foster openly declared in 2007 that she is bisexual. Sexy Zoe Saldana (“Avatar,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl,” “Star Trek”) and Anna Paquin of “The Piano,” “X-Men” and “True Blood” fame likewise declared that they are bisexual.
If there’s one thing that Michelle does not relish, it’s being typecast as a sex object. In past interviews, she has stressed that she wants to get people to listen to what she has to say, rather than to be focusing on her body, or looking hot. The talented actress who exudes a tough chick persona on- and offscreen has been a much sought-after actress with Puerto Rican lineage had been cast in many films. She played a troubled boxer in the film, “Girlfight” but it was her role as Letty Ortiz (the love interest of Dominic Toretto portayed by Vin Diesel) that launched her to stardom.

Unlike other celebrities who transition from tv to movies, Michelle Rodriguez did several movies (including the science fiction hit, “Avatar”) before branching out into tv. Michelle joined the cast of Season 2 of the popular tv series “Lost” which increased her fan base further. As she did one movie after another – including the “Resident Evil” series, and on to “Battle: Los Angeles,” Michelle’s personality evolved. Industry colleagues know her as a woman who knows what she wants. She is so independent and is happy with a select group of friends in Hollywood. This small circle of friends includes her “Fast and the Furious” co-star Vin Diesel and Olivier Martinez. Michelle is also glad to have been given career breaks by Hollywood bigwigs like James Cameron.

Michelle has had close encounters with some of her movie/tv co-stars. When she did the 2005 movie BloodRayne with model-actress Kristanna Loken, they got pretty close. They began hanging out, drinking together and hitting the club scene. The closeness was something the paparazzi did not miss out on. The fact that she would grace Hollywood red carpet events without a steady date also set tongues wagging. Michelle has had her share of negative publicity owing to her brushes with the law. She was accosted for drinking & driving on several occasions between 2005 to 2007. Now, at 35, Michelle Rodriguez has put her troubled years behind her.

The vivacious actress, who actively promoted her “Fast and the Furious 6” movie with other cast members in Asia, specifically the Philiipines, towards the middle part of this year has definitely gained a huge following. Not a few raised their eyebrows, though, when their favorite feisty star hogged headlines admitting that she is bisexual. Michelle is nonplussed with all the media attention that her bisexual nature has generated. The successful Latina actress who once said she’s ready to work behind the cameras if the opportunity presents itself is presently bracing for the 2014 showing of “Fast and the Furious 7.”
