Zoe Saldana Covers 'Cosmopolitan for Latinas' Premiere Issue

Zoe Saldana strikes a pose in Bebe on the cover of Cosmopolitan for Latinas‘ premiere issue, which hits newsstands May 1.

Here’s what the 33-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On being a Latina: “People think of Latina women as being fiery and fierce, which is usually true. But I think the quality that so many Latinas possess is strength. I’m very proud to have Latin blood.”

On being a ballerina in her teens: “I had to quit ballet because it felt like a part of me was dying inside. It takes a lot of courage to face up to things you can’t do because we feed ourselves so much denial … In dance you use every party of your body except your voice. I wanted to start acting because I wanted to use my voice.”

Check out Zoe‘s other cover on!

FYI: Zoe is wearing a Blugirl dress for her fashion spread.

I forgot to add one of Selena’s parents is white. Salma and Shakira are half Arabic. So they’re not 100% “Hispanic.” Both of Zoe’s parents are Hispanics.

Real latinos do not look like Zoe , Zoe looks African mostly. And yes, Sofia Vergara is white because she is descended from Latins who are white so naturally she looks white and she is blond to.

So sick of these ignorant morons! What do “real Latinos” look like?? There is no set physical mold for ANY ethnicity or race.

You know Sofia is a natural blonde right? Nicole is a natural redhead. Yes I’d say they’re both white.

It’s like going to the circus.

nice photoshop, by the way i didn’t knew Latina princess were black and with a monkey nose. LOL.

Ignore the racist, ignorant trolls. All they are trying to do is spwe hate to upset people. Saying black Latinos aren’t Latinos is like saying black Americans aren’t American.

I am a black Hispanic and don’t care what u racists pigs think.

As another poster said Spaniards are so racist they don’t care what color your skin is “white Hispanic”, if u are not a native born Spaniard they consider you less than them and ur defintitely not Spanish.

Disappointing, but Cosmo is trying to be politically correct even though they are wrong.

Sad to see that people are so racist it just proves that we are not going anywhere.

@Juan: Truth! Thanks for a great observation. The more “Love” Latin@s have, the more the world will embrace you. You could be unstoppable.
