For years, the raven-haired beauty — who's hit some rough patches in her past — either ignored or denied rumors that she was a closeted lesbian.
Back in 2007, the "Fast & Furious" star slammed Curve magazine after she claimed the publication tried to out her. While she insisted that she wasn't insulted by the story, she did take to her website to put the mag in its place. "To put words in someone's mouth and place people in categories affects them for sure, especially in this business," she lamented. "I don't know what the intent behind the curve magazine cover was. I wasn't informed of it, I had no idea they were planning on using my image to sell magazines." She later added, "Look, I guess what I'm trying to say ultimately is that, if I wanted people to know what I do with my Vagina I would have released A sex video a long time ago."
And as recently as April 2013, Rodriguez told Cosmopolitan Latinas that she was "attracted to manly men" and blamed L.A.'s metrosexual male culture for her single status.
But now the 35-year-old star has changed her tune. In a revealing interview with Entertainment Weekly, she addressed Tinseltown's rumor mill head on: "I've never walked the carpet with anyone, so they wonder: What does she do with her vagina? Plus, I play a butchy girl all the time, so they assume I'm a lesbo."
When the magazine noted that's not a fair assumption, Rodriguez laughed.
"Eh, they're not too far off," she quipped before admitting, "I've gone both ways. I do as I please. I am too f---ing curious to sit here and not try when I can. Men are intriguing. So are chicks."
And there you have it. She's bisexual … or bi-curious … or something. Regardless of how she truly identifies herself (since she doesn't exactly say), there's a big change here in that she's at least talking about it.
