Zoe Saldana Has a Few Naughty Words to Share With Nylon

Zoe Saldana put on her Spring clothes for the upcoming April cover of Nylon. We're used to seeing her in an array of gorgeous gowns during award season, but the Avatar star got casual and colorful for the accompanying shoot. We'll get lots more of Zoe this year with The Losers and Takers hitting the big screen, and she got a little reflective about her newfound power in Hollywood and what it was like first meeting James Cameron. Zoe said:

  • On moving from NYC to the Dominican Republic at 9: "We went from this urban life to running around barefoot in the countryside and being taught how to gut fish. We were learning how to climb coconut trees — let me tell you, they are f*cking dangerous!"
  • On meeting James Cameron: "I’m thinking he probably imagined some Amazonian girl [for Neytiri] — I had really long hair at the time — wearing really little s*it with like, a bow and arrow. I had no idea she was blue and nine feet tall. But for some reason, he was like, 'You look so much like her!'"
  • On her new Hollywood competition: "Whatever role Angela Bassett or Kate Winslet can get, I can certainly at least get through that door."

she's so annoying and gross. i don't want to have to hear about how much she loves sex, and she's obviously delusional if she thinks she's some amazing actress that is in the same category as oscar winning Kate Winslet. Whatever, she's dumb.

what are black features? i did not know that black folks had features that could not be found in any other group. i guess i should not be surprised that Pop chose those excerpts from her interview, typical.

She is not from a mixed ethnicity, the girl is black. She is a black girl from the Dominican Republic with black features, hair,etc...

young-ish actresses all play this part, this is not anything new. once they get to a certain age, or have kids they are no longer seen as sexually viable so no you won't see Meryl, Angela or Kate doing these kinds of shoots. the beauty of non white women has always been something that society has been slow to acknowledge, so i'm not surprised by the "she's ugly..." mantra. when making arguments about race and someone starts down the "i don't care if the person is green, orange or violet.."that is usually an indication they subscribe to the idea that the world is colour blind.

zeze, i get the same feeling about her! i really liked her before avatar came out, but i've been reading these interviews lately and have been less than impressed for some reason. and comparing herself to kate winslet? that takes balls. i need to see more from zoe than just sci-fy movies and Center Stage before i'll agree with her.

I'll never understand why so many comment sections on this site have to become about ethnicity or racial. Who said anything about what color skin she has? What has that got to do with ANYTHING? I don't care if she's purple....the interview (and others) sound ugly. That's all. Why read more into it than that

I really loved her before Avatar. I thought she had such an interesting look and she appeared smart to my, I don't know why, I think I saw her playing a lawyer or something in some movie and bought it... But honestly, the more interviews I read from her the less I like her. She is coming off trashy and one of those people who says things just to get a reaction and without any thought...kind of like Megan Fox. A little maturity, respect, and mystery can go a loooong way.
