Actress Michelle Rodriguez finally put the rumors to rest recently when she publicly acknowledged that she is bisexual.
She is now reflecting on the decision to go public.
'I’m getting older,' she tells Latina magazine. 'Eventually it’s going to wrinkle up and I’m not going to be able to use it.'
But there's more to it than her age.
'I wanted to be honest about who I am and see what happens,' Rodriguez adds.
She is currently filming the seventh film in the wildly successful Fast & Furious franchise. Rodriguez tells the magazine she is especially attracted to these type of 'badass' roles.
'You know there’s a deep rebellion that I feel inside towards the typical, stereotypical place where a woman endures the baby boom era and is told what to be. There’s something about that, which makes me want to throw up,' she says. 'So, I run away from that as much as possible for my little stint of a career. And there’s a big crowd of people just like me, who I think will agree.'
