Michelle Rodriguez kicked ass in Lost and Avatar, but her characters always get killed. Why is that? We managed to corner her at San Diego Comic Con and ask her.

We caught up with Rodriguez at the press conference for her new film Battle: Los Angeles and asked her this question during the Q&A. Here's what she said then:

Because I don't take my clothes off, and I'm nobody's girlfriend. The writers are new to the whole tough girl thing, and they don't know what to do with [me]. We've got the dude who's strong, so what do we do with the chick who's strong? We kill her. Eventually they'll get used to it, and maybe Salt will change a thing or two.

We liked her answer so much, we grabbed her afterwards and asked her to repeat her answer on video — and there it is!
