*chokes on coffee*AVATAR star Michelle Rodriguez said she was hesitant to sign on to her latest film Machete until she realised the movie was a symbol of hope - like President Barack Obama's election.
A pity the Latinos cant stay away, especially the illegals...Rodriguez was not completely sold on the project about a revenge-seeking Mexican federale because she feared it would reinforce stereotypes about Latinos, , the Los Angeles Times reported.
“I was nervous about doing a movie about Latinos. I've usually stayed away from it," the 32-year-old told the Times.
As opposed to now, when everyone and their dog is asking the same question" What the FUCK was I thinking????" :eek:"But after I read the script, I realised this is about a symbol of hope. It was kind of the way we felt about Obama when he was first elected,” the American-born Puerto Rican-Dominican actress added.
With or without the Vice Squad on standby?The Robert Rodriguez action film also stars Lindsay Lohan and Jessica Alba and will be released in theatres on September 3.
