Michelle Rodriguez was most recently seen in the hit movie "Furious 7", another blockbuster film to add to her list has the attention of fans after she revealed in an interview that she wants to do something different with her career. The actress who has become one of the 'It' girls of Hollywood, an independent, fun-loving, heartbreaker type of woman whose list of ex-girlfriends and boyfriends include model Cara Delevigne and Zac Efron is showing signs of maturity and it has her fans and some entertainment observers taking notice.
In a recent interview she mentioned how she had moved to Venice, California from Hollywood, found herself an agent for the first time in five years and was now truly interested in taking a new direction in her career (LA Weekly - May 6). The feisty, attractive actress known for playing tough, independent women, usually in a supporting role, now is interested in returning to playing a lead role, something she has not done in fifteen years since she rose to fame with her critically acclaimed performance as the troubled boxer in the independent film "Girlfight (2000)!
If her interest was solely taking on a lead role that would be enough of a reason for fans to get excited but the feisty Latina who admits that part of the reason she has not been a lead actress in other projects is largely because she's "a picky bitch", is not only interested in playing a lead role but also wants to write scripts and this likely has many of her fans in a state of ecstasy (LA Weekly - May 6).
This information revealed an interesting element about Michelle Rodriguez that some believe she tries to hide in that while she may not 'wear her ambition' on her shoulder she is a very motivated actress as the average individual does not think about writing scripts or leaving a legacy which she intimated in the interview is of great interest to her.
When a talented actress starts talking about wanting to be a lead actor and develop projects which will allow her to work with other stars such as Reese Witherspoon, Sandra Bullock and Zoe Saldana that is a sign that maybe her talent and maturity are starting to reach the same level which could result in some spectacular performances once the "Fast and Furious" star finds her next project.
Michelle Rodriguez is a star who sounds as if she is ready to take the next 'major' steps in her career as a lead actress and writer.
