Michelle Rodriguez: In ‘Machete’ there is ‘hope’

HollywoodNews.com: What did Robert Rodriguez’s rock ‘em, sock ‘em actioner “Machete” symbolize to Michelle Rodriguez? In a word: Hope.

The actress, who stars in the film as an underground Che-like figure, went so far to put the R-Rated film which deals with Mexican immigration issues on a pedestal with President Barack Obama’s election.

The Los Angeles Times and New York Post were tracking the news.

At first Michelle was concerned that “Machete” would only exhibit Mexican stereotypes.

“I was nervous about doing a movie about Latinos. I’ve usually stayed away from it,” said Michelle.

“But after I read the script, I realized this is about a symbol of hope. It was kind of the way we felt about Obama when he was first elected.”

Michelle Rodriguez is an American-born actress of Puerto Rican-Dominican descent.

“Machete” won the top spot at the box office on Friday drawing in $3.9 million. While many are acquainted with the film’s origins as a trailer in the “Grindhouse” double-feature, director Robert Rodriguez actually conceived the idea for the character while watching actor Danny Trejo on the set of “Desperado.”
