By Tashara Jones. So we had a lot of things against us. I felt like I had masculine qualities versus feminine qualities just because I am an alpha. I do what I want and never let anybody tell me otherwise. I am kind of hardcore about that. But then when I go and actually play a man, I realized I am such a girl, there is nothing manly about me. The toughest part was wearing a beard because it was really itchy. The minute my hand came up to my face, you could see that I was a woman. I have female fingers.
Racial equality may be a major issue in Hollywood, but somehow Michelle Rodriguez managed to cause offence by petitioning for ethnic parity. Stop stealing all the white people's superheroes," she said in a video obtained by TMZ. Rodriguez was branded insensitive, and later posted a video of herself apologising on Facebook.
