Meet My Favorite Actor • Of Puerto Rican and Dominican descent, Mayte Michelle Rodriguez was born on July 12, 1978 in Bell County, TX, on July 12, 1978. She lived with her maternal grandmother, moving around throughout her childhood and adolescence living for a time in Texas, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, and Jersey City, NJ. Her parents are Carmen Milady and Rafael Rodriguez, who divorced when Rodriguez was only 8 years old. She currently lives in Los Angeles, California.
Girl Fight’s Review In GIRLFIGHT, Diana Guzman is a tough high school girl with a violent streak. Between problems at school, a father who belittles her, and a lonely social life, she searches for some way to find respect, love, and challenge. Diana finds all those things in the boxing ring at Brooklyn gym, where she begins training without her father's permission and eventually earns the gym's championship for female boxers. Rodriguez's performance is what carries the film, as she makes the character of Diana Guzman come alive. That is the truly beautiful thing about this film.
A “Must See” Movie This movie is worthy of an Academy Award because it shows that when you believe enough in yourself, you can achieve high above any goal. Michelle Rodriguez’s performance as Diana is compelling and completes the directors vision in every way. Girl Fight has its share of romance, violence and the struggle for a female boxer to get to the top.
