Michelle Rodriguez regrets working with the documentary filmmakers who she says took advantage of a "deep moment" -- her revelation about Paul Walker's death.

Rodriguez told a photog in Bev Hills she wishes she had passed on the project because she feels exploited. 

TMZ broke the story ... Rodriguez talked about her spiritual journey while using the psychedelic drug, Ayahuasca for the documentary, and dropped a bombshell -- that she was jealous Paul experienced death before her.

Watch ... Michelle's offering an explanation and an apology.
