Action star Michelle Rodriguez's sexuality has long been the subject of public speculation, and now for the first time, the star has spoken out to Entertainment Weekly about the gay and bisexual rumors surrounding her...and if there's any truth to them.

"I don't talk about what I do with my vagina, and they're all intrigued," the 35-year-old said to Entertainment Weekly of the media's apparent obsession with her.

"I've never walked the carpet with anyone, so they wonder: What does she do with her vagina? Plus, I play a butchy girl all the time, so they assume I'm a [lesbian].... Eh, they're not too far off. I've gone both ways. I do as I please. I am too...curious to sit here and not try when I can. Men are intriguing. So are chicks."

Known for her roles in "Avatar," the hit TV show "Lost" and her girl-on-girl throwdown with MMA fighter Gina Carano in "Fast & Furious 6," the iconic Latina actress has never been shy about her personal life, calling herself "loud, crazy, [and] obnoxious," and is unashamed to admit that therapy has helped her "calm down" over the years.

Currently she's working on a new venture: her budding writing career, including a children's movie and a film about a secret society of women. Promoting female empowerment has always been her main agenda.

"The drive behind the majority of female characters is, 'Let's have the girl let the bad guys in.' Or, 'Let's give the lead guy something to save,'" Rodriguez said to the Los Angeles Times when "Fast & Furious 6" came out. "It's typical of Hollywood decisions that don't work anymore. You can be kickass and a sexy woman. You can't just write the female off with wackness. It's hard for a woman in this business. I always have to redevelop the script for my character to be involved. It sucks!"
