Michelle Rodriguez wishes she didn't have a wild streak and constantly has to fight against the urge to rebel against everything and get into trouble.
Michelle Rodriguez regrets her troubled past.
The 'Avatar' actress has made headlines in recent years for her party lifestyle - including a short stint in jail for hit and run and driving under the influence (DUI) charges - but although she has turned her life around, she still has to fight the urge to rebel and act out on a daily basis.
She confessed: ''I had some bad moments. I partied hard. The world knew it. I feel like my growth is a progression ... I go forward, and I've had times when I go back.
''Just last year I had a time where I had a bad stretch. I rebel against everything, including myself. I'm like, 'Oh no, let me do something f***ed up now.' But then I'm like, 'OK, what am I doing to myself?''
The tough-talking star also announced she was taking a break from acting to mode behind the camera and plans to uproot from Los Angeles and live like a hermit so she can focus on her new project.
Michelle added in an interview with Cosmopolitan Latinas magazine: ''The truth is I'm about to say goodbye to acting for a minute and move behind the camera. I got into this business to write.
''I've waited 13 years to actually do it ... But like now I'm ready, so that means I have to do the cut off. I'll go into the mountains, and bye-bye everybody.''
