Zoe Saldana Covers 'Glam Belleza Latina' October 2013
Here is what the 35-year-old actress had to share with the mag, which is a sister publication of Glamour.
On the controversy surrounding her portrayal of Nina Simone: “You know, I do wish that people made their own judgment after they watch the movie because right now, it isn’t even edited yet, and there’s been so much uproar. I can’t say that I’m not affected by it or that it’s not valid. But the one thing that we all have in common is an unconditional love and admiration and respect for Nina Simone. Something that’s done out of love, in my mind, can’t be right or wrong.”
On her headline-making comments about potentially ending up in a relationship with a woman: “Honestly, as women, we have to teach the world to back up. I don’t know where I’m going to be in a year or five years, and so yeah, that [raising a family with another woman] can happen….”
On being a black Latina: “I am proud to be Latina. I will not accept [anyone] telling me that I’m less or whatever, because to me, that is just hysterical. But I don’t like to break and divide myself into all these small little categories like, ‘I’m an American, a woman, a Latina, a black Latina.’ No. I am Zoë.”
