Steve McQueen Was Warned Not to Work With Michelle Rodriguez Because ‘She’s Difficult,’



When McQueen told people he wanted her for a role in “Widows,” he was met with hesitance.
He was originally told not to work with Rodriguez because she has a reputation for being difficult on set.
People say that about him as well. They call him difficult. While a white director is called a perfectionist. 

McQueen offered Rodriguez the part but she declined. She felt the part was “subservient to men.”
He ended up auditioning several other actresses for the role, none of whom worked as well.
The filmmaker persisted and landed an in-person meeting with Rodriguez.
