#1 Michelle Rodriguez: Inspired by ObamaSonnabendGuest09-04-2010, 05:38 AM
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.
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.
"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.
The Robert Rodriguez action film also stars Lindsay Lohan and Jessica Alba and will be released in theatres on September 3.
