She's played a total badass in The Fast and the Furious movies for the last sixteen years.

But after suffering an accidental nip slip whilst on holiday in Mexico recently, it seems Michelle Rodriguez can't bust the occasional wardrobe malfunction.

The 39-year-old actress was enjoying a splash in the sea wearing a striped bikini when the mishap happened, exposing her right nipple to her fellow beachgoers.

Luckily, she didn't seem to fazed by the slip up and continued with her cooling swim.

The Avatar star kept her brunette locks safely tucked away in a swimming cap during the dip, which was in Tulum along the Caribbean coastline.

Shunning make-up for a natural look, she stunned at the exotic beach.

Her most recent F&F flick, The Fate of the Furious broke history last year when it was the first movie to shoot in Cuba in over 60 years.

But Michelle threatened to quit the popular franchise over her view that there weren't enough women in the movie.

“I hope they decide to show some love to the women of the franchise on the next one," she wrote on Twitter in June 2017. "Or I might just have to say goodbye.”

Michelle has played Letty, the wife of Vin Diesel’s character since 2001.
