Michelle Rodriguez Shut Down Lesbian Rumors after Coming Out as Bi
Actress Michelle Rodriguez has been romantically involved with many well-known names including Vin Diesel, Zac Efron, and Cara Delevingne. But before she came out as a bi, there were many rumors and speculations saying she was a lesbian.
In an interview with EW, Rodriguez noted that there had been interest around her romantic preferences for years as she never walked the red carpet with anyone and often played butchy girls in movies. She also put an end to all the gay rumors by confirming she was bi.
I’ve gone both ways. I do as I please. I am too [expletive] curious to sit here and not try when I can. Men are intriguing. So are chicks.
Gay rumors started surrounding Rodriguez around 2006 after she was was romantically linked to BloodRayne co-star Kristanna Loken. As people grew increasingly convinced that the Fast & Furious actress was lesbian, she was put on the cover of lesbian magazine Curve in 2007.
Rodriguez wasn’t aware of the publishing decision and later commented on it. She didn’t take too badly to her appearing on the cover but expressed her disapproval at having her classified as a lesbian.
In her own words, she was dissatisfied with the magazine putting “words in someone’s mouth and [placing] people in categories.” Rodriguez said in 2011 that she wasn’t a lesbian but only revealed she was bi few years later.
Rodriguez Says She Can’t Sustain Relationships
Over the years, Rodriguez has been romantically involved with many people but most of her relationships have been short-lived.
During her interview with the Interview Magazine in January 2015, the actress talked about her views regarding relationships and thoughts on family. Rodriguez said she wanted a child but was in no hurry. She classified herself as a lone wolf and revealed she had trouble staying in a relationship for long.
I’m a lone wolf. I run by myself on most things. I’ve got lots of really great friends, but the thought of being in a long-lasting relationship? Psh, I couldn’t last more than six months with somebody, let alone having a father figure around for a kid.
Who Has Rodriguez Dated?
While Rodriguez has clarified that she is more than happy pushing off having a family or a kid, she has no such concerns about dating.
The Fast & Furious actress dated co-star Vin Diesel from October 2000 to April 2001. In the subsequent years, she dated Total Recall actor Colin Farrell, French actor Olivier Martinez, and singer Lenny Kravitz.
Kristanna Loken was the first female Rodriguez dated, with model Cara Delevingne being the next. The actress had also been in a relationship with Zac Efron and Jordan Barrett in 2014 and 2018, respectively.
Rodriguez hasn’t been public with her relationship since then and it’s unclear if she has a boyfriend/girlfriend at the moment. She looks busy with work and has been occupied with promoting her latest movie, Fast & Furious 9.
She recently took to Instagram to show appreciation for the love the movie was getting all over the world.
