Los Angeles - Michelle Rodriguez regrets her troubled past.

The Avatar actress has made headlines in recent years for her party lifestyle - including a short stint in jail for hit and run and driving under the influence (DUI) charges - but although she has turned her life around, she still has to fight the urge to rebel and act out on a daily basis.

She confessed: "I had some bad moments. I partied hard. The world knew it. I feel like my growth is a progression (...) I go forward, and I've had times when I go back.

"Just last year I had a time where I had a bad stretch. I rebel against everything, including myself. I'm like, 'Oh no, let me do something fucked up now.' But then I'm like, 'OK, what am I doing to myself?"

A break from acting

The tough-talking star also announced she was taking a break from acting to mode behind the camera and plans to uproot from Los Angeles and live like a hermit so she can focus on her new project.

Michelle added in an interview with Cosmopolitan Latinas magazine: "The truth is I'm about to say goodbye to acting for a minute and move behind the camera. I got into this business to write.

"I've waited 13 years to actually do it ... But like now I'm ready, so that means I have to do the cut off. I'll go into the mountains, and bye-bye everybody."
