The fast-paced and furious scene Michelle Rodriguez refused to do

While speaking with Jen Yamato of The Daily Beast, Rodriguez revealed that the original script for “The Fast and the Furious” contained a story involving Letty cheating Dom (Vin Diesel) with Brian (Paul Walker), who then led to a love triangle between the three characters. This type of narrative arc just did not make sense to Rodriguez.

“It was more of a ‘Point Break’ idea … They just followed the format without thinking about the reality of it,” Rodriguez said. She went on to explain: “Is it realistic for a Latin girl who is with the alpha-est of alpha males to cheat on him with the cute boy?

In addition to not finding the bow believable, Rodriguez also disliked the idea of ​​portraying a character who was a cheater. She described giving the creatives behind the film an ultimatum: either the story had to go, or she would end the film. Luckily, she got an assistant from one of her co-stars.

Rodriguez said, “Vin was the first to pull me to the side while I was crying and he just looked at me and said, ‘I have your back. Relax and let me handle this and you’re right – it’s me to look bad anyway. ” Eventually, the story was removed, Rodriguez remained in the picture, and Diesel proved that the family really sticks together.
