4. Michelle Rodriguez
Character: Letty Ortiz
Appearances: The Fast and the Furious (2001), Fast & Furious (2009), Fast Five (2011, cameo/photo), Fast & Furious 6 (2013), Furious 7 (2015), and The Fate of the Furious (2017)
Throughout her career, Rodriguez has proven to be a major badass with movies like S.W.A.T., Battle: Los Angeles, Avatar, Girlfight, Machete Kills, and Resident Evil—but no role personifies her ability to hold her own like that of Letty Ortiz in the Furious series. Rodriguez has had to play both the good and bad side of Ortiz throughout the series, especially in Fast & Furious 6, when she’s involved in the mercenary organization led by Owen Shaw (Luke Evans).
30. Rodriguez needed to get ripped for this movie, because, this time, she’s directly in the line of fire. In Fate of the Furious, Rodriguez’s Ortiz will have to find out why Diesel’s Toretto betrayed her on their honeymoom and turns on his “family” by joining up with Charlize Theron’s villainous Cipher. Will Rodriguez be able to bring him back again?
31. Rodriguez doesn’t just confine herself to the gym for a workout—sometimes she goes to the extreme. Rodriguez has jumped out of airplanes, hiked up mountains, hit the water on boats, and trotted around New Zealand.
32. The women of Fate of the Furious got in great shape for the film: In a visit to The Daily Show, Rodriguez spoke about some of her fight training and praised Theron’s toughness and dedication to her role as the movie’s villain.
34. Rodriguez is a self-described eco-friendly eater and looks toward foods like free-range meats, fish, beets, broccoli, and spinach as her favorite options.
