Hey Michelle Rodriguez, Why The Hell Do You Die In Every Movie?

Oh GAWD, hide the good silverware and lock that deadbolt -it’s only been a day since we last mentioned Michelle Rodriguez and she’s already back to turn us all into her bitch. Yesterday, after wrapping up a panel discussion with some of the cast and crew from Battle: Los Angeles, handlers were able to corner Michelle and subdue her long enough to pick her brain on why practically every character she portrays always ends up getting the sh*t killed out of them. After much initial hissing and spitting, Rodriguez responded with:

Because I don’t take my clothes off, and I’m nobody’s girlfriend. The writers are new to the whole tough girl thing, and they don’t know what to do with [me]. We’ve got the dude who’s strong, so what do we do with the chick who’s strong? We kill her. Eventually they’ll get used to it, and maybe Salt will change a thing or two. [io9]

Yeah, whatever you say Michelle. I mean, I would have argued that your characters always die probably because they’re next to impossible for any actual human beings to relate to, not to mention that every time you…*Michelle Rodriguez slaps Chodin across the mouth* Okay, okay! Down girl! I get it, never mind. I love you…

First released Battle: Los Angeles stills after the jump:

And as long as we’re mentioning more Battle: Los Angeles news, below we’ve got the first official stills that have just been released. I’m still aching in my loins for this to be cool, but let’s be honest: I live in Los Angeles, so I can’t help the home field allegiance. They could call this flick Gangbang: Los Angeles and I’d still cross my fingers and legs, hoping it would be really good. Actually, now that I think about it, I have seen Gangbang: Los Angeles and it is really good. Really, really good. Yay for my movie review!

Special thanks to Cinemablend for the pics.
