Michelle Rodriguez was coined a “tough chick actress” after starring in the 2000 film Girlfright. After months of arduous training in Brooklyn’s Gleason’s Gym, her performance in Girlfright earned her acting awards and serious street cred. One year later, she landed the role of Letty Ortiz in the blockbuster hit The Fast & Furious. She plays Letty once again in Fast & Furious 7, to be released April 2015.
After partying this week in Ibiza and “sucking face” with Zac Efron (High School Musical, 17 Again), rumor has it Rodriguez will return to Hollywood to shoot her latest film, TuChT. In the thriller, she plays Angel, a beatific young woman held captive by a suicidal man-child (John Leguizamo). She tries to save his life at the risk of losing her own.
