Michelle Rodriguez strikes the perfect balance between feminine and fierce in the Summer 2013 issue of Cosmopolitan Latinas.
Inside, the actress admitted she’s battled her inner wild child with some success and some struggle. She explained, “I’ve had some bad moments. I partied hard. The world knew it. I feel like my growth is a progression. It’s like you’re about to fly out and head to Ibiza another year in a row and your gut’s telling you, ‘No, stay home and write.’ 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. I’m like, ‘Oh no, lemme do something f***** up now.’ But then I’m like, ‘Okay, what am I doing to myself?’”
For now, Rodriguez is preparing to switch roles in Hollywood. “The truth is I’m about to say goodbye to acting for a minute and move behind the camera. I got into this business to write. I’ve waited 13 years to actually do it. You know how painful that is? It’s very painful. But like now I’m ready, so that means I have to do the cutoff.
