How does she make everything look so effortlessly sexy?
Zoe Saldana is seriously fierce on the August 2014 cover of Canada’s Fashion magazine in a gorgeously embellished Julien Macdonald plunging dress. The Dominican beauty’s career is at all-time high right now, as she’s preparing to star in multiple roles – such as the second installments of Star Trek and Avatar, along with the controversial role of Nina Simone in Nina, and Guardians of The Galaxy.
The starlet’s career wasn’t the only thing she discussed with Fashion magazine. Zoe also opened up about her split with Bradley Cooper, being a newlywed, and the best advice she’s received as a woman. The full interview will be available July 14th but until then, check out a few excerpts below.
On her breakup with Bradley Cooper and marriage:
“I was finally able to spend time without being in a relationship and even though, it was a short period of time, it was beautiful. Where I lost that fear of being alone. It was bliss. Then I met my partner when I was in really a beautiful place in my life. It was like I found all my answers with him not in him. I was finding my answers on my own.”
On her view of competition in Hollywood:
“I was a ferocious dancer so therefore I was a ferocious up-and-coming actress. When it comes to auditions, I’m not competitive with anybody. I don’t even know who’s sitting next to me. I wouldn’t even tell you if it was a blonde or brunette. The moment you compare yourself, it weakens you.”
On the best advice a woman can get:
“It’s important to not have women be afraid of you, to accept your mortality and your aging so that you can be a better mentor for up and coming women. Whenever these young women come and they just want to take everything all at once, just because they’re younger and their asses are harder and plumper, you kind of go, ‘Child, sit down. Yes, you’re beautiful but listen to these 1, 2, 3s.’ 1. Don’t hike up your skirt too much. 2. I’m pretty sure you’re intelligent so act like it. 3. Read a book.”
