Mag Fab: Zoe Saldana On The Cover Of Women’s Health + Latina Mag

The star of 2011 biggest Thriller  ColombianaZoe Saldana has been a busy Lady lately she on the cover of  both “Women’s Health” & “Latina” mag. The magazine will hit newsstands Aug 9 & 16.

Women’s Health:

On her action-packed roles like Cataleya in the upcoming
Colombiana…

“Physical roles give me a chance to learn something new. Like the fact
that I can grab a gun, disassemble it, and put it back together. I’m a
girl from Queens. I’ve never gone, ‘What am I doing today? Oh, I’m gonna
grab a gun and learn how to use it.'”

On dressing according to themes…
“I’m always referencing. If I’m listening to some old songs from Whitney
Houston, I might put some spandex stuff together.”

On her midnight tattoo sprees…

“We woke up the next morning and were like, ‘That totally [bleepin’]
happened!'”

On her Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
co-star Orlando Bloom…

“Orli is a real English gentleman. He can hang out with girls in the
same way that he can hold his own with a bunch of guys.”

On her Guess Who co-star Ashton Kutcher..
“He’s so talented at conceiving ideas. And the initiative! We have
similar personalities: neurotic. Up, down, here, there, and everywhere!

Latina:

On dealing with her newfound fame:

“The year after Avatar was just emotionally overwhelming. I was traveling all over the world, waking up in different time zones. Your body gets exhausted, and by the end of the year I just collapsed.”

On coming close to a total breakdown:

“I was in Paris training for Colombiana, sitting in my hotel room, and I couldn’t stop crying. I couldn’t stay awake. I must have slept for an entire month. It took me the rest of the year, even as I was working and shooting Colombiana, to pick myself up. Thank God my family was there.”

On the post-Avatar effect:

“I just want the best filmmakers in the world to tell me, ‘You’re good, kid, you’re legit.’ The recognition will never get old, and I’ll never get accustomed to it. I don’t ever want to, because that will mean I’m taking it for granted. That’s why I work, not for the luxuries or the awards.”

On the simple joys of life:

“I just stay at home and do absolutely nothing. When I was younger, that would have made me feel like such a failure. Now that I’m older, I know what it means to shut down. I don’t shower if I don’t want to. I don’t answer e-mails. It’s a healthy way of being selfish. You know you’re old when gardening, the Food Network and voice notes from your nieces and nephews blow your mind.”

On her small circle of friends:

“If you surround yourself with good people, if you’re having a bad day – which everyone does – they will protect you, and it will never reach any kind of surface. But if you surround yourself with people who don’t really love you and care for you, they’ll be the first ones to expose you. That’s dangerous.”

On the key to her 12-year relationship with actor Keith Britton:

“I think the only reason we’ve made it this long is because we don’t listen to anybody but ourselves. We’ve still managed to sustain a relationship in a world where half of the people we know are divorcing or going through problems. It’s like that song we both love by Frank Sinatra – we did it our way!”
