After years of keeping her vagina out of the limelight, staying private about its likes and dislikes and hobbies and whatnot, Michelle Rodriguez is finally ready to share some intimate details. She’s denied for a long time that she’s anything but straight, but in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, she gets a little more clear about her stance on peens versus vees:
“I’ve never walked the carpet with anyone, so they wonder: What does she do with her vagina? Plus, I play a butchy girl all the time, so they assume I’m a lesbo … they’re not too far off.”
Yes Michelle? Yeeeesss? You’re so close to revealing something!
“I’ve gone both ways. I do as I please. I am too fucking curious to sit here and not try when I can. Men are intriguing, [but] so are chicks.”
There it is! The information is out there! It’s a free world! Congratulations to Michelle for finally — but wait! Didn’t we already know this? Why do I feel like this information was already accessible? TO GOOGLE!
OH. Right. Turns out that in 2007, Curve Magazine elected to out Michelle by putting a photo of her on their cover and bill it as a ‘coming-out’ interview. Damn, ladies! Those are some balls! Just plopping someone on your cover and insinuating that they’re coming out! And this was six years ago, when there was a substantially different climate ready to receive ‘out’ celebrities. Here’s Michelle’s response to it at the time:
“As far as rumors go of me coming out, I guess Curve magazine took it upon themselves to out me on the premise of their own suspicions…I have a big lesbian following, and for whatever reasons they show me love…I will say this: To put words in someone’s mouth and place people in categories affects them for sure, especially in this business. I don’t know what the intent behind the Curve magazine cover was. I wasn’t informed of it, I had no idea they were planning on using my image to sell magazines.”
Wellllll I don’t know about that last part, necessarily. I mean it does suck that everyone interpreted that magazine cover as you proclaiming that you were a lesbian, but you definitely did know that the magazine was going to use your image to sell copies, regardless. I mean…that’s why they pay you to pose for them. But talk more anyway:
“If I wanted people to know what I do with my vagina I would have released a sex video a long time ago. Yet I haven’t done that.”
Nope, no you haven’t. And especially back then, it’s true that being labeled as a lesbian could have really impacted your career.
“There are certain things that can close doors between a celebrity and certain audiences. … If I were Ellen [DeGeneres] I may get away with the ‘I’m gay’ level of exposure, but I’m not a comedian, I like men (real ones anyway) and I’ve only been in this business for seven years, not 20.”
So I mean. There are definitely a ton of lines to read between, but Michelle is clearly refuting the claim that she’s gay. Which she’s continued to do ever since. Here’s a comment she made in 2011 on the red carpet for Battle: Los Angeles:
“I’m not a lesbian. Yeah! Mitchie likes sausage.”
…which I guess, isn’t necessarily false, since Michelle is coming out as bisexual. She’s done her damage in both genders, and there’s no shame in that. Everybody wins! Except for Lance Bass, who now has one less celebrity name to drop when talking about closeted people in Hollywood. Whomp whomp.
