Michelle Rodriguez turns 35-years-old today -- and she's probably been a badass for all 35 of them!
The actress made her film debut in the critically acclaimed 2000 flick "Girlfight" before joining one of the most enduring action franchises of our time: "The Fast and the Furious."
Since 2001, she's gone on to play the sexy, tough chick in almost everything she's been in -- including "Avatar," "Lost," "Resident Evil" and "Machete."
With another "Fast & Furious" flick coming in 2014 and "Machete Kills" hitting theaters later this year, her tough-as-nails roles aren't going anywhere ... and we're totally O.K. with that!
And while she still looks great, how have some of the other stars of the original 2001 movie aged in the last 12 years?
