HollyWho-Knew the outwardly cool and confident actress is terrified of performing live?
Michelle Rodriquez may seem like the world’s toughest chick, but in reality the 31-year-old starlet says appearances are deceiving. Despite her aggressive performances in Lost, Avatar and Girlfight, Michelle is actually much softer than she seems.
“I have to confess, I have a secret. Well, not anymore I guess, but I have an innate fear of stage,” Michelle told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at the Global Home Tree VIP reception in Los Angeles April 22.
“When I did the Vagina Monologues in New York, it was four months of horror. I felt like throwing up,” she confided, adding, “I have this gnarly thing. I can talk live to a bunch of kids, but if they’re adults it’s like, ‘Ah! I don’t know how to communicate!’ I had to look at the monolgues the whole time! It was really a hard experience.”
As for any Lost scoop, the Latina-actress said she’s just as ‘lost’ as the rest of us. “I haven’t the slightest clue! Like I always say, those guys are like the secret service with their info,” she told us. “I’m lucky if I know if there’s a movie coming out next year!”
