After Michelle Rodriguez left Lost, we darn near lost track of her, but it turns out there's a very good reason the smoking-hot actress hasn't been chasing the limelight: She's got her sights set on a different dream.

"The truth is I'm about to say goodbye to acting for a minute and move behind the camera," the Cosmopolitan for Latinas covergirl explained.

"I got into this business to write. I've waited 13 years to actually do it. You know how painful that is? It's very painful. 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."

Plus, if Michelle Rodriguez goes behind the scenes, the public scrutiny will likely diminish.

The 34-year-old, known to have had trouble with the law in the past, admitted, "I had some bad moments. I partied hard. The world knew it."

"Just last year I had a time where I had a bad stretch," she added. "I rebel against everything, including myself. I'm like, 'oh no, lemme do something f****d up now.' But then I'm like, 'okay, what am I doing to myself?'"

Undoubtedly, some fans of the star's svelte figure will miss seeing her on screen. Rodriguez confidently boasted, "I can make anything sexy. I'll wear a leather jacket and nothing underneath!"

Despite persistent rumors claiming she's either gay or bisexual, the Girlfight actress explained, "I'm attracted to manly men. I can't do metrosexuals who get their nails done more than me. Which is why, living in LA for eight years, you can’t blame me for not having a partner!"
