Rodriguez Turned Down Crash
Actress MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ has no regrets about turning down a role in CRASH, much to the chagrin of her agent. The LOST star was offered the part of CHRISTINE in PAUL HAGGIS' Oscar-winning movie - the role British actress THANDIE NEWTON garnered critical acclaim for. But the 27-year-old is determined to only accept roles which feel right for her, and harbours no negative feelings about any of her career decisions. Rodriguez tells the British edition of Cosmopolitan magazine, "(I have no regrets). Not at all. I turn down a lot of roles, which freaks my agent out. "I turned down the role of the girl in Crash, which got an Oscar."
