I am attracted to both men and women
How often do we come across a statement like this? Not usually, isn't it? But that is not the case when it comes to the Fast & Furious franchise actress Michelle Rodriguez, known as Letty in the franchise's movies. She has gone beyond convention when it comes to giving comments about her sexuality by speaking openly about this issue in public.
Though she insists that her sexuality is her private concern, it's no secret to anyone that Michelle has dated a number of girls and loves to be in a relationship with women.

Ever since, Michelle has been surrounded by rumors of her being gay. In the late-2013, Michelle ended up speaking about it. She addressed the issue with Entertainment Weekly.
I don't talk about what I do with my vagina, and they're all intrigued.
She further added:
I've never walked the carpet with anyone, so they wonder: What does she do with her vagina? Plus, I play a butchy girl all the time, so they assume I'm a lesbo.
After her statement, the reporter did not feel necessary to add the "lesbian" tag. But nevertheless, Michelle cleared the air by saying,
They're not too far off. I have gone both ways.
Down the road, in June 2015, Michelle spoke in support of Cara Delevingne, whom she dated back in 2013, over Cara's words regarding speaking openly about her sexuality in Vogue.

Cara discussed her sexuality in an interview with Vogue. She said,
I think that being in love with my girlfriend is a big part of why I’m feeling so happy with who I am these days. And for those words to come out of my mouth is actually a miracle.
Rodriguez supported Cara by calling her candor "beautiful". She told to the E! News,
Did she [Delevingne] come out in the article? For her to come out - God bless her. I think that's beautiful.
She further said,
I think everybody should be open about everything in their lives, but at the end of the day the world isn't that black and white. You've got some people who, if they really did say what they do for a living, they'd lose their job. And that's the real world. The real world is that with the truth comes judgment. And with judgment comes opinion and with opinion comes stupidity, ignorance and all these other things that can really mess up your life.
Indeed, Michelle is a determined woman. She speaks out her heart and that's what she is good at.
