Zoe Saldana graces the cover of Net-A-Porter’s The Edit’s “Accessories Issue” where she spoke openly about her marriage (“I’m not a private person, but I am discreet, so it felt right”), staying fit and being ambitious.
The actress has always been under the radar when it comes to anything she does, especially her relationships. Last year, the Rosemary’s Baby actress shocked us all by marrying artist Marco Perego and since then, she’s gone through some major changes.
“I’ve been an active person my whole life. The past year has been the only time in my life that I haven’t been to the gym. I’ve been lazy instead of training for something and pushing myself,” said the Columbiana actress. She’s also learned not to take the industry’s opinion of her to heart; especially when it comes to her fashion choices.
“I don’t care what people think. If I did, I’d be at a different place in life, but I don’t. I can’t fake it. I follow my heart or my friends’ advice. Petra Flannery, my stylist is paramount when it comes to my fashion radar; she pushes me to evolve.”
Now that the honeymoon phase is over, Zoe is ready to take on Hollywood once again–this time, in a different capacity. “I have ADD, I’m a Gemini and I get bored quickly. So my next challenge is to direct, because I’m getting tired of just being a particle in the whole telling of the story. I want to be more. I want to be there from its conception.”
The actress already has two works underway– Rosemary’s Baby and the Nina Simone biopic– in addition to a rumored lead role in Eartha Kitt’s biopic.
