MICHELLE Rodriguez has come under fire after unveiling her ‘mansformation’.
 

The actress was pictured with her boobs bound, a fake beard and prosthetic nose as she was made over for a new film role.

Barely protecting her modesty with a pair of plasters, she smouldered into the camera, serving heaps of swag.

In the caption she explained: “Promoting Tomboy: A Revengers Tale. Producers are convinced the new movie title should be re-assignment but I'll stick to the title I signed on to shoot.

“It's in the B Movie genre, a culture shock, shot like a 'film Noir' graphic novel. I played a male assassin for four days in the movie, boy was that beard itchy,” she went on.

BACKLASH: Michelle was berated for trivialising transgender struggles

“Then out of revenge, a twisted doctor played by Sigourney Weaver decides to take my character's manhood away with a sex change to teach him a lesson. I never felt more like a woman than when I played a man.

“For the rest of the film I was a man stuck in a newly operated sex changed body. I had fake boob covers to look like man implants and I wore a fake hairy 'mangina,’ which you can't really see cause they made it so hairy.

“In retrospect I'm I glad took the plunge, the industry seems to be running low on edgy creativity and real ‘take a chance' controversy, sometimes it makes me want to scream.

“I feel that my skinny build sometimes comes off hermaphroditic in the film, especially when you add the crazy male chest for the nude sequences.”

However, some of the star’s 2.9 million Instagram followers felt that both the premise of the film and Michele’s “performance of masculinity” was offensive and made a mockery of the transgender community.

“This is the most transphobic s*** I have seen in years,” one user raged.

“F*** making trans folk the punchline. F*** movies where being trans is contrived as "punishment" for characters who do bad s***. This is f****** nasty. Your way of kicking against the status quo is transphobia, which, surprise, is part of the status quo,” another agreed.

“Sorry Michelle, girl you gotta know I love you, but this movie sounds insensitive as f*** to the transgender community. Turning their very real struggle into a fun little tour for you and a cheap shock value movie,” a third chimed in.

Michelle has a track record of wading into controversial flicks.
