Zoe Saldana is beautiful, stylish, a twin mommy and a successful actress so it’s no surprise that InStyle magazine picked her for their July 2015 cover.
The 37-year-old actress, who looks gorgeous on the cover is married to Marco Perego and is the mother of twin boys, Bowie Ezio and Cy Aridio. In her cover story she opens up about motherhood, how it’s changed her life and her relationship with her husband. She stays busy because she is currently starring alongside Mark Ruffalo in the movie Infinitely Polar Bear which follows a manic-depressive father (Mark Ruffalo) who tries to win back his wife (Zoe) which debuts in theaters June 19.
She talked to InStyle about her body…
“I don’t want to get back to where I used to be,” she tells InStyle. “I want to feel healthy, and not just fit into the old jeans I used to wear.”
“I’m a woman now. My body has changed forever. It’s softer… and stronger.”
She also talked about her weight in a post on her facebook page…’Your body changes dramatically, inside and out. You grow in places you never knew you could, and you are tired beyond belief. In some cases more than others, your body experiences a kind of trauma through childbirth that is difficult to explain unless you’ve had that experience,’ the Avatar actress wrote.
‘My case was like that, everything from my thyroid to my platelets crashed. Thank God, we are all doing great now, but my body was really bent out of shape after the boys were born.’
She talked about how strong her relationship has become after her twins with InStyle..
“Finally, when we had our boys, I looked at my husband and I realized: I was meant for you, and you were meant for me,” she says. “I’ve always felt comfortable around men as long as they were my friends. Now I finally feel comfortable with my lover.”
She shared her thoughts about her husband taking on her last name.
“I tried to talk him out of it. I told him, ‘If you use my name, you’re going to be emasculated by your community of artists, by your Latin community of men, by the world,’” she says. “But Marco looks up at me and says, ‘Ah, Zoe, I don’t give a s—.’
