Michelle Rodriguez Says Minority Actors Should 'Stop Stealing All the White People's Superheroes'
Michelle Rodriguez gets ready to grab dinner at The Nice Guy restaurant on Saturday evening (February 28) in West Hollywood, Calif.
The night before, the 36-year-old actress was heard in a TMZ video saying that minority actors should “stop stealing all the white people’s superheroes” and make their own.
Michelle then clarified her comments on Facebook, saying: “What I really meant was that… I think there are many cultures in Hollywood that are not white and that can come up with their own mythology.”
She continued, saying: “It doesn’t matter what culture you come from. I’m just saying that instead of trying to turn a girl character into a guy or instead of trying to turn a white character into a black character or a Latin character, I think that people should stop being lazy and people should actually make an effort in Hollywood to develop their own mythology.”
