Man, she feels like a woman!
Michelle Rodriguez shared a photo of the fake beard and breast binding she wore while shooting an upcoming film tentatively called Tomboy. In it, the Fast and Furious star plays a male assassin who is forced to have a sex change.
“I never felt more like a woman than when I played a man,” Rodriguez, 38, explained in the post. “For the rest of the film I was a man stuck in a newly operated sex changed body. I had fake boob covers to look like man implants & I wore a fake hairy ‘mangina’ which you can’t really see cause they made it so hairy.”
“In retrospect I’m I glad took the plunge, the industry seems to be running low on edgy creativity & ‘real take a chance’ controversy, sometimes it makes me want to scream, instead I did what I always do when I’m bored with the ‘status quo’, I shot crazy b movie Indy to express my frustration.”
But she was also concerned about her portrayal of the male character.

“I wish I had more than a few weeks to prepare for this flic, I would have gained a lot more weight, & we would have made some hairy arms to match my Mediterranean look,” Rodriguez admits. “I feel that my skinny build sometimes comes off hermaphoditic in the film, especially when you add the crazy male chest for the nude sequences.”
“Lol hope y’all will enjoy the flic sometime, when we sell it of course… It’s interesting to say the least.”
