Michelle Rodriguez has no regrets about coming out as bisexual.

"It's cool man, I mean whatever," she told Gay Star News at an event benefiting the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center.  " I'm not big on people's opinions, you know? Unless it's somebody I really respect. I don't care what people out there have to say." 

The actress came out as bisexual in late 2013, telling Entertainment Weekly she goes "both ways." 

"I do as I please," she said. "I am too f***ing curious to sit here and not try when I can. Men are intriguing. So are chicks."

According to Fox News Latino, The Fast & Furious actress said her life has not really changed since she publicly confirmed that she's bisexual. In recent months, the 35-year-old actress seemed to become more comfortable in her sexuality, openly dating supermodel Cara Delevingne

Rodriguez hopes that her comments inspire others to embrace their sexuality. "I do realize the importance of having the bravery to live as who you are and I feel like a lot of people don't have that bravery," she continued. "Maybe by me opening my big fat mouth like I usually do and stepping up and owning who I am, maybe it might inspire someone else to do the same." 

We love Michelle's comments about coming out! What do you think?
