    Apparently Zoe is the only available black actress in Hollywood. What a shame. Why Is Hollywood so intimidated by intelligent, strong and dark-skinned women?

    That is so very scary. They could’ve just hired Adepero Oduye and they wouldn’t have had to bother with all this ridiculous makup.

    She’s a latina but she’s a afro-hispanic .. so yea she’s black.. Still it’s very weird seeing a black actress in black face.. no other black actresses available?

    Laura Says:

    @ Kirste, Alaia and Zey: Money rules in Hollywood/business; Zoe Zaldana is one of the most commercial/hyped black actresses right now, it’s all about the “It-girl” of the moment…

    Alaia Says:

    @Laura: That is true, but are they really looking to break box office records with this film? I just can’t see anybody saying “I’m going to watch this because Zoe Saldana is in this.”

    In fact, I don’t think I have read any positive comments about her casting. If anything, it will attract negative buzz. Especially from the black community.

    The United States of Hate. Disgusting. Nina Simone is turning in her grave. The paperbag rule in America needs to be abolished. Since they’ve had a half-Black president in power, racism and hate towards black people is at an all time high. The fact that Hollywood would rather hire a fair-skinned black actress and then paint her darker speaks volumes on the state of ignorance in the media.

    I’m sorry but have they spray-painted her to a darker brown? She is not this complexion in real life. Pathetic if they have.

    Why is her face a different colour to the rest of her body?

    Anne Says:

    @zey: yeah but she will be the first one to tell you that she is DOMINICAN not BLACK. Which, to me, is stupid.

    Brenda Says:

    People should be able to play whatever role they want, its the acting that counts. I am just confused on why they let Mary J. Blige go on this role. It was reported that she dropped out for some reason.

    Vanessa Says:

    She reminds me of Ertha Kitt. She would be great if they ever did a movie on Ertha.

    @Yohji: She’s wearing black face. NO!

    Truthie Says:

    @Anne: Actually Anne, she has always said she was black. Look at her imdb bio. Dominican is not a race.

    @Brenda:

    Yes and No. Actors such as Dustin Hoffman (Lenny), Denzel Washington (The Hurricane) Bill Murray (Hyde Park on Hudson) Colin Firth (The Kings Speech), Robert Di Nero (Raging Bull) and Angela Bassette and Laurence Fishburne (What’s Love Got To Do With It) gave outstanding performances of their respective RL character without the use of prosthetics.

    Forrest Whitiker is a great actor who won and Oscar for The Last King of Scotland but I must say that I was quite underwhelmed at the amount of “makeup” used to get him into character. The sad/funny part about that was, you could see the makeup on his clothes from perspiration. I think that if an actor is truly talented (sorry, I find Zoe only mediocre) they should be able to convey the essence of the character via acting, not prosthetics.

    I find it rather pathetic that the director chose an actress who does not consider herself black, yet is so proud to be playing a woman of color. What’s next, Zoe lipsyncing Nina’s music. Sorry, but all I see is a disaster film in the making. Speaking of disaster films, does anyone remember Michael Chiklis’ film, Haywire, about the late iconic comedian John Belushi? The critics trashed his performance and I’d hate to think what the critics will be saying about Zoe, I agree with the person who said that Zoe was chosen for the part as she is the new HW it girl.

    STUPID HOLLYWOOD! Says:

    Bad enough they chose thumbelina Zoe to try and play Nina Simone a strong all black woman but to push it even further they went all the way back and did a black face on her!!!??? WTF!!!!

    Elena Says:

    it baffles me that zoe hasn’t gotten it through her head. NO ONE wants her playing nina simone, including nina’s daughter. i get that the (stupid) producers are trying to make money but at what point does zoe say “okay, maybe this isn’t the right role for me so let me just pass”

    clearly it’s too late now, but she’s losing fans each time a new photo comes out.

    Neva Says:

    Is a shame!! an insult to black people and Nina (a true artist). Zoe is a lousy actress. There are so many actresses who deserve this paper without looking ridiculous!
    Now with so many bad comments about her makeup in this role, sure the next week another photo shoot with Cooper for dirty publicity. Gross!

    Kiara Says:

    Zoe can do that role, she is a woman of color, stop hating because she has a fine fine man around her. She did her thing in Columbiana also. She is a great actress.

    @Vanessa: Thandie Newton would make a better eartha Kitt.

    @Alaia: i agree! or Nikki Micheaux. Either would’ve been perfect.

    Annie Says:

    She’s NOT in blackface! The only changes I see from the usual Zoe I see is different hair/clothes and maybe slightly higher weight for the role. Otherwise this is entirely Zoe’s usual/natural face.
