Actress Michelle Rodriguez, 32, known for her tough-as-nails roles in such films as as Machete and Girlfight, showed a softer side in a frilly white bikini and big sunglasses on the beach in Formentera, Spain this week. She also displayed a perfectly toned bod, as she prepared to take the waves, with a surfboard tucked under her arm.

First you can catch her in Blacktino, a comedy slated for release later this year.
