Michelle Rodriguez Speaks Out on 180 Day Jail Sentence

If I was just sentenced to six months in jail, I wouldn't be saying anything. I would be in my house, crying my eyes out. But Michelle Rodriguez is speaking out about the sentence that will be sending her to slammer for 180 whole days. Here's what the Lost star told the paparazzi about the judge's ruling:

"Let's count all the things that have happened to Michelle Rodriguez since 2005 in Hawaii... and then you tell me how you feel," she began. "I got community service, I got a bracelet, I did 75 or 60 something days on the bracelet. I did about 25 some odd days community service at the county sheriff's office - clerical work, cleaning up the office, stuff like that... In 2005, the case all together, the violation of probation here, and in LA, and then out there in Hawaii, all together cost me about $100 grand. I lost my house, lost my cars - that hurt," she said. "[That] "(The finances) wasn't as bad as not working for about 2 years," she said laughing. "You know, - cause then people have a hard time trusting you. They think that you're like... I don't know, reckless or something. Let's just say that my wild days are over... the judge gave an order to go let me go shoot this movie with James Cameron, she was very graceful to go let me shoot my movie... I have to go turn myself in on Christmas Eve."

So, does she think her sentence was fair? "Let's look at what other people get for their 3 DUI's. Just take a look at it - just take a look at all the cases and all the people that have been stuck with stuff. I guess, you know, it's probably pretty rough what I've done. I'm taking complete responsibility for everything and I'm doing as I'm told, so you know, that's all I can do - I really have no power to do otherwise...I just take it like a woman, you know what I mean?"

Uh, I guess. Sort of. Not really. I can't tell if she's whining or not. She should just go into her house and cry.
