Fast And Furiuos’s Michelle Rodriguez For Interview Magazine

The 36 year old actress was recently interviewed for Interview Magazine by her Resident evil co star Milla Jovovich, its interesting to know that Michelle grew up both as an Army brat and a Jehovah’s Witness. She talked about the Cannes Film Festival, spirituality, growing old, motherhood and the the Fast and Furious Movie franchise;


On the Cannes Film Festival; ”I enjoy vanity like the best of them. But I can’t stick to any of that lifestyle for too long because, when its true colors come out, it’s empty and cold and soulless. So I have to travel and go find some real people. After Cannes every year, I end up going to some foreign country I’ve never been to before and introducing myself to a new religion—I’ll go to Bali and research Hinduism, or I’ll go to Thailand and get another tattoo from”

On spirituality; ”Sometimes I wake up in awe that I’m alive. I can’t get over that part, so I guess it makes me kind of like an existentialist. I’m always researching ancient religions, and I was also raised Jehovah’s Witness, so that kind of scarred me for life.”


 On Growing old; ”That’s beautiful. That’s about going from micro to macro, zooming out and taking it all in. It’s evolution. I fucking love getting older, man. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I mean, I’d love to have the energy I had.”


On motherhood; ”I cherish what you do;having kids (referring to the interviewer who is pregnant with her second child) but don’t leave that shit to me i’ll get a surrogate. One day I’m going to have to sacrifice that to bring life into the world but the more I can hold off on that, the happier I’ll be. It’s scary for me, I’m a lone wolf I run by myself on most things. The thought of being in a long-lasting relationship? Psh, I couldn’t last more than six months with somebody, let alone have a father figure around for a kid.”


 On the Fast and Furious movie franchise and her character ‘Letty’ which caused some issues because Letty was supposed to be a slut in the movie; ”Either you don’t make her slut (a character that gets with both Vin Diesel and Paul Walker’s characters) and you respect her, or you’re going to lose me and you can sue me and do whatever because I’m from Jersey City, what the fuck do I give a fuck? I’ll go back to where I came from. Whoop-de-do. You’re not hurting me none—it’s not like I’m losing millions.” Vin protected me, he was like, “Wait a minute, I don’t want a slut for a girlfriend! That makes me look bad”.”
