Michelle Rodriguez trumps tough with sexy
HollywoodNews.com: Good news fanboys. If Michelle Rodriguez had the choice between playing a tough or sexy character, she chooses the latter.
And in putting such talents on display, Rodriguez had the chance to exude them in Robert Rodriguez’s upcoming shoot ‘em up “Machete” due out Labor Day Weekend.
For many years, Michelle was pigeon-holed as the “tough girl.” She gets how Hollywood works:
“I think it’s that some people have that Cleopatra appeal, some people have that warrior appeal, and some people have the mother appeal – whatever your power is as a woman, go for it! Run with it!” the actress tells Movie Hole but enough is enough in her opinion.
“You know what was amazing to me? Finally not having a frickin’ cop outfit. I’m so tired of these butchy polyester outfits. It seems every time I do something I’m wearing some government outfit – it’s so annoying. With the exception of Fast And The Furious, I’m always in uniform. I’m always like, ‘Can I just get rid of this butch outfit and be hot for once?'”
Despite playing hot in “Machete,” the 32-year-old actress refused to go naked in the film.
“That was one of my first conditions before we even started, ‘I’m not taking this off and you’re still interested Robert, you can pay me’ – I’m joking,” says the actress.
