For the new Summer edition of Cosmopolitan for Latinas, Michelle Rodriguez revealed to the magazine that she might just escape from the big screen, and begin a new moment in her career out of the public eye.

“The truth is I’m about to say goodbye to acting for a minute and move behind the camera,” said the actress in the interview with Cosmopolitan.

“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 cutoff. I’ll go into the mountains, and bye-bye everybody. Well, I’m a Cancer so … it’s in my nature to hide.”

The star also spoke of the Fast & Furious franchise:

“Fast & Furious definitely comes up first for Latin folks I meet at the airport. They can relate because there are a lot of blue-collar individuals that feel like outsiders just by being in this country. It makes you think that living on the other side of the tracks is just a better option.”

The actress also assures she is determined to overcome her troubled past, which represents a day-to-day process for her, reports The Huffington Post.

“I had some bad moments. I partied hard. The world knew it. I feel like my growth is a progression. It’s like you’re about to fly out and head to Ibiza another year in a row and your gut’s telling you, ‘no, stay home and write.’ I go forward, and I’ve had times when I go back.”

She went on, adding: “Just last year I had a time where I had a bad stretch. I rebel against everything, including myself. I’m like, ‘oh no, lemme do something f*cked up now.’ But then I’m like, ‘okay, what am I doing to myself’ ”

And finally Rodriguez spoke in the interview with Cosmopolitan about her preferences in the opposite sex, saying: “I’m attracted to manly men. I can’t do metrosexuals who get their nails done more than me. Which is why, living in L.A. for eight years, you can’t blame me for not having a partner!”

The news about Michelle’s decision to have a rest from filming comes a few month later after the first trailer for the highly expected “Fast & Furious 6” was released.

Directed by Justin Lin, his fourth spin in the director’s chair of a “Fast and Furious” film, “Fast and Furious 6″ shows what happened after the events of the previous movie.

With Dom (performed by Vin Diesel) and Brian’s (by Paul Walker) crew flush with $100 million, but can’t return home after a heist portrayed in the previous film, they are presented with an opportunity for redemption.

This time, the crew helps the U.S. government take on villains with some fast cars of their own – and a tank, repots The New York Daily News.

“We’ve graduated to a whole new level,” says Dwayne Johnson’s federal module, who was found working with the former car thieves easier than trying to chase them.

They also have entered special effects budget as in this movie the super drivers manage to bring down a cargo plane.

Back for another lap is the whole crew, including Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gison, Ludacris and totally unexpected returnee Michelle Rodriguez, whose Letty was believed to have bumped off two films ago.

“Do you believe in ghosts?” she asks Toretto at the end of the trailer.

“Fast and Furious 6″ is a follow-up to highly successful “Fast Five” which scored about $626 million worldwide after its release in April of 2011.

The “Fast and Furious” franchise has earned over $1.5 billion at the global box office.
