Michelle Rodriguez seems to be quite upset on the cast of Fast & Furious. The famous actress threatened to leave the franchise if it fails to “show love to the women” in the next movie. It seems that the star does not appreciate at all the way women are seen in the series.
Michelle Rodriguez starred in Fast & Furious as Letty Ortiz, the love interest of Dominic Toretto. Toretto’s role was played by famous actor Vin Diesel. Although it seemed that Michelle was very happy and very much involved in the franchise, now it appears that the famous actress is not that pleased with the way the movies have been made. So, in a recent Instagram post Michelle said that she will not renew her collaboration with Fast & Furious if the franchise will not bring women more into the spotlight.
“F8 is out digitally today, I hope they decide to show some love to the women of the franchise on the next one,” the star shared. “Or I just might have to say goodbye to a loved franchise. It’s been a good ride & Im grateful for the opportunity the fans & studio have provided over the years… One Love,” her post added.
If Michelle keeps her thought of leaving the franchise if nothing will change when it comes to the role of women, we can surely say that the cast will have to suffer. Michelle is actually one of the last original members of the Fast & Furious cast. Except her, only Vin Diesel was also featured on the movie since its first installment.
“I’ve been making movies with Jordana, who plays the sister of Dom Toretto, for 16 years and I can count on one hand how many lines I’ve had to her,” Michelle previously said. So, we can surely say that this is not the first time when Michelle has spoken about this subject. The star also claimed that the domain in which she works, meaning the movie industry, is dominated by men. “It does weigh heavy on my head — especially in the male-dominated environment that I work in,” she said.
