Seal of Approval: Michelle Rodriguez

I'm always happy when Michelle Rodriguez shows up in a movie, even though she usually gets killed off because she's not the main heroine- she is, after all, too butch to be the main heroine. Mouthy, surly, and tough, as she herself says, Michelle doesn't play the delicate, easily-offended girlfriend. It's kind of like she can't, because her own personality always seems to come through. Sure, she doesn't have a lot of range, but the character she always plays is a great one.

As a fan of the action genre, it always sucks to see the female characters getting sexily raped or almost raped, spending the entire movie captured/stuffed into car trunk/in coma/tied up, crying pitifully, or needing constant rescuing. In a perfect world, Michelle would be the own star of her own (totally gay) big budget action movie, with lots of explosions and murders and no panty shots.

Sayeth Michelle:

"Well, could you really imagine me playing the girlfriend that needs rescuing? Or the girlfriend?"

"I don't want people thinking of me sexually. I don't want people to be like, 'She's hot-looking,' you know? I want them to listen to me for what I am saying. And I think the best way to do that is to sniff my armpits, and like, sit and burp every now and then. It just completely throws people off.
