‘I Worship Men. Men are Adonises:’ Zoe Saldana Gets Feisty For June Issue Of ‘InStyle UK’ And Blasts Hollywood Execs
Star Trek Into Darkness actress Zoe Saldana’s life has become quite the open book lately. Instead of taking the typical Hollywood route, offering only politically correct answers during interviews, the 34-year-old bombshell has been unapologetically speaking her mind and we’ve got to admit that we love it! The Avatar actress appears on the cover of InStyle UK for the month of June rocking a chic little number, but don’t allow the dress to fool you. Homegirl pulls no punches in her interview. Check out some of what she had to say.
On Hollywood’s double standard regarding women and aging:
“I’ve been told by producers, ‘Well, you know we need to get on this because you’re not getting any younger…’ Women are reminded of their age all the time and it’s usually by a fricking fat, big-bellied old man with a comb-over and you look at him and you’re like, ‘Really? Give me a break. You just have more money and more power in this situation than I do, but not in my life.'”
On the male species:
“I worship men. Men are Adonises.”
On her dream guy:
“A badass renegade! A pirate! A pirate who can cry. Oh my god!”
On being broken-hearted after her split with Keith Britton and never giving up on love:
“When it didn’t work [with Britton] it was heartbreaking for the both of us, but it’s life.”
“I believe in love because I had it for so long, so I know it’s possible. I’m not one of these people who’s going, “Oh, because I was with someone for so long I need to take a break.” What if love is just around the corner?'”
On the realities of dating younger:
“I’m tired of watching these 50-year-old actors with these 23-year-old actresses and they’re soulmates in the movie. What? [In real life] a 23-year-old would look at a 50-year-old and go, ‘Are you kidding me?!’ We love plump muscles as much as they do. A 23-year-old boy?'”
Two snaps up!
