Michelle Rodriguez Says She Might Quit Fast & Furious Series

Michelle Rodriguez Fast & Furious star threatens to quit due to poor female representation
Freda Brock | 28 Июня, 2017, 17:45

Over the course of 18 years of the successful franchise, Rodriguez has appeared in six out of the eight films in the series - including a photo reference to her in 2011's Fast Five.

The actress, who plays Letty Ortiz in the street-racing adventure series, said on Instagram Tuesday that the ride may be over for her unless "they decide to show some love to the women of the franchise on the next one". Fast & Furious 9 has to do better by its women if the studio wants Rodriguez to stick around.

Rodriguez and Vin Diesel are the only remaining members of the original 2001 film's cast still involved in the series.

Michelle Rodriguez hinted that she may leave the "Fast and the Furious" franchise.

The Fate Of The Furious introduced two new female characters to the mix, Charlize Theron and Dame Helen Mirren, but nearly doubled the size of its male entourage since the first film.

"I think that's pathetic and it's lack of creativity", the 38-year-old told Entertainment Weekly.

"I basically cried and said, I'm going to quit and, 'Don't sue me, please-I'm sorry, but I can't do this in front of millions of people", she said. If the production could not grant her simple request then "Fate" would be her final appearance in the franchise. Although the actress has made her intentions clear if the women of the series do not get more of the spotlight, it remains to be seen how things will play out moving forward.

Rodriguez and Diesel are the only actors who have been with the franchise since the beginning following the tragic loss of star Paul Walker in 2013.

It's not the first time the brunette beauty has spoken out about the women in the franchise either, as back in May she spoke candidly about fighting with movie bosses to make sure her character accurately portrays strong women.

"At the end of the day, the only leverage I have as an individual is my participation".

The Fate of the Furious was a roaring success, making more than $1.2 billion in cinemas around the world. That's the only leverage I ever use with anything.
