Rodriguez Upset About Lesbian Magazine Cover Shot
Former LOST star MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ has lashed out at the editors of lesbian magazine Curve after they made her their cover girl without her permission.
The actress has refused to confirm or deny ongoing reports she's gay and she insists the magazine's attempts to 'out' her are not welcome.
In a posting on her website, Rodriguez, 28, writes, "I guess Curve magazine took it upon themselves to out me on the premise of their own suspicions.
"I'm not insulted, I have a big lesbian following, and for whatever reasons they show me love. I'm never going to shun, disrespect or neglect anybody who shows me genuine non-psychotic love.
"I will say this: To put words in someone's mouth and place people in categories affects them for sure, especially in this business.
"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."
But Curve executive editor Diane Anderson-Minshall claims she's puzzled by Rodriguez's outrage - because she had no intention of 'outing' the star.
She tells People magazine, "I am sorry that Michelle Rodriguez feels like we've outed her. If she would read the article, she could see that is simply not true. Our intention was definitely not to do that."
