Michelle Rodriguez is one of those celebrities who likes to keep her private life ... private. But now, she's opening up about everything from love to her signature "tough girl" persona in Interview magazine.
In the mag's February issue — available today — the actress gets candid about her failed relationships in an in-depth discussion with Milla Jovovich.
"Come on. Look at me! I have absolutely nothing consistent in my life. But that's where serendipity comes in and I love that," the "Fast & the Furious" star admits.
"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," she adds. "I've got lots of really great friends, but 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. I mean, if I could give a kid a father figure, that would be amazing."
"I cherish what you do—having kids—but don't leave that s**t to me. I'll get a surrogate," she says to Jovovich. "It's not just that. I do what I want, when I want, how I want, and because of that, it has taken me so long to grow into an adult human being. I wouldn't want to sacrifice the last years that I have of being youthful in this business to have kids.
Rodriguez also admits that she often gets typecast because she's being a "picky bitch."
"I hate everything. I say no to everything. That's my problem," she explains of her bad girl roles. "Maybe I exclude myself from that genre by not getting dressed up often enough, by acting ghetto most of the time, and running around in sweats and Timberlands."
The 36-year-old actress launched her career 15 years ago in "Girlfright," but she almost missed the audition!
"I was like, 'F--k this s**t, what do these people know? They're not going to know what I'm capable of within ten minutes of knowing me.' I felt like it was a f--ked-up system. And that's why I was in a dark place," she admits.
"I didn't know what I was going to do with my life. I was up to no good with a friend of mine in Jersey City the night before. We were partying and free-styling on a rooftop, and I was, like, 'Dude, I know that if I stay here, I'm definitely going to end up in jail.' So I said to myself, 'I'm going to go to this damn audition. Let me see, f--k it." And boom. Here I am. Isn't that crazy?"
