Zoe Saldana Talks Bullying in Cosmo South Africa

November 2, 2011  |  

 “Columbiana” actress Zoe Saldana covers the South African issue of Cosmopolitan this month. Judging from the advice she gives her niece on dealing with bullies, I can see why the Dominican beauty was so amped about being able to kick butt in her latest film.

She said:

“I’ve been trying to teach my niece to be verbal rather than physical and always to speak to an adult if another child is bothering her. But if you have tried every civilized angle to defend yourself, I’m saying bust someone’s kneecap if you have to. I’m okay with that.”

I love her.

What do you think of Zoe’s cover and her “bust a kneecap” advice? She’s tougher than she looks.
