Tough girl actress Michelle Rodriguez says it’s not her style to kiss up to anyone – but she’d make an exception.
“I’m so not [the] type to ass kiss,” she writes on her Web site, “and I’ve never had a mentor in this business not anyone I respect as much.”
So who does Lost alum Rodriguez bow down in homage to? James Cameron, of course.
“I am about to embark on a journey with one of my favorite story tellers and mythology manifestors of all time,” she says on her personal blog. “I wouldn’t mind being this man’s assistant, anything I could learn from him would make me so happy.”
The Titanic director is set helm Rodriguez, 28, alongside Siguourney Weaver in his upcoming deep-space battle, Avatar.
Her message comes just days after being cast to appear in the sci-fi blockbuster and it’s Rodriguez’s first blog since she dissed Curve magazine with a claim of outing her as lesbian more than two months ago.
