We, as a world, are not quite evolved as we'd like to think we are. See: The fact that former Lost cast member and current kick-butt action heroine Michelle Rodriguez has been followed by endless question marks regarding her sexuality. Now, Rodriguez has addressed those sexuality rumors head-on, and the nonchalant way in which she did so should be an inspiration to us all.
"Eh, they're not too far off," Rodriguez told Entertainment Weekly about the rumors of her off-screen sex life. "I've gone both ways. I do as I please. I am too f--king curious to sit here and not try when I can. Men are intriguing. So are chicks."
You go, Michelle Rodriguez. Four for you, Michelle Rodriguez. "I've never walked the carpet with anyone, so they wonder: What does she do with her vagina?" she said. "Plus, I play a butchy girl all the time, so they assume I'm a lesbo."
Let's all just agree not to address this as Michelle Rodriguez's "coming out" story, OK? From the sound of it, Rodriguez has been secure in her sexuality for a long time, and she's not sweating it, so why should we? It was really none of our business in the first place which genitals she prefers in her downtime, and as she said, it's kind of ridiculous that her lack of red carpet date automatically made us shout "LESBIAAAAN!"
"I do as I please" sounds like a pretty good philosophy for almost anyone when it comes to identifying and coming to terms with whomever you happen to be attracted to. Like I said, you go, Michelle.
