She’s sweet and funny, but you definitely don’t want to get on her bad side. In the August issue of Marie Claire, rumored mom-to-be, Zoe Saldana, opened up about negative experiences in past relationships and why she refuses to be friends with certain exes.
“I have been in relationships where a man has disrespected me, and I don’t need to be friends with that man anymore,” Zoe expressed.
She went on to add that she’s not going to be friends with someone who “crossed” her all for the sake of being able to say that she’s still friends with a former flame.
“I don’t want to be the one going, ‘I’m cool, because I’m friends with all my exes.’ There’s a reason why you’re called an ex. I crossed you off my list. Moving on. You cross a line, you need to know that you’re going to walk this earth knowing that there’s an individual who has no respect for you.”
While she came off a tad feisty in this particular interview, Zoe also addressed some of the positive events of her love life—including marrying hubby, Marco Perego.
“I don’t do the ABCs,” she said. “I do what my heart says, what my heart feels. So from the moment I met my husband, we were together. We knew.”
From all of her experiences in the love department, both positive and negative, Zoe says she has learned that there is nothing beneficial about settling.
“If you’re not happy with a person, leave,” she added. “And wait until you find that one person who makes you feel good about yourself every single day and is not expecting you to change, but to grow.”
We’d say that’s some pretty sound advice.
