Michelle Rodriguez Explains Why Steve McQueen Is Such a Unique Director

After working with him on the upcoming film “Widows,” Michelle Rodriguez holds director Steve McQueen in the highest regard, telling TheWrap at the Toronto International Film Festival that he has a unique gift that only a precious few she’s worked with have shown. “He’s a human that has an ability to see potential before it’s brought out,” she said. “It’s the ability of seeing through the veil, and that can shock even the actor that’s being chosen to step up, because it means that person, that individual has an aspect of themselves they might even be afraid of or not even know existed that they’re going to have to pull out, and that’s where people grow.”
