Michelle Rodriguez has revealed that her grief was fueled by more than just sadness and that her grief almost drove her towards insanity. It seems that the Fast and Furious actress was resistant to come to terms with the reality that every individual has their own unique journey and that life is transient and fragile.
Michelle Rodriguez reportedly opened up about her pain her in The Reality of Truth, a documentary by Mike “Zappy” Zapolin that shows how different people, groups, and cultures resort to alternative means like spirituality, meditation, and psychedelics to come to terms with the realities of life. Michelle Rodriguez resorted to taking a Peruvian psychedelic drug called ayahuasca, which she says helped her to fully grieve the death of Paul Walker. According to the actress, her ayahuasca trip made her accept the fact of Paul Walker’s death.
