Zoe Saldana Talks Relationships with 'Marie Claire' Mag: 'If You’re Not Happy with a Person, Leave'

Zoe Saldana is decked out in all denim for Marie Claire‘s August issue, on newsstands July 22.

Here is what the 36-year-old Guardians of the Galaxy actress had to share with the mag:

On her relationship with husband Marco Perego: “I don’t do the ABCs. I do what my heart says, what my heart feels. So from the moment I met my husband, we were together. We knew.”

On the biggest thing she’s learned about relationships: “Not to settle. If you’re not happy with a person, leave. And wait until you find that one person who makes you feel good about yourself every single day and is not expecting you to change, but to grow.”

On disrespect: “I have been in relationships where a man has disrespected me, and I don’t need to be friends with that man anymore. I don’t want to be the one going, ‘I’m cool, because I’m friends with all my exes.’ There’s a reason why you’re called an ex. I crossed you off my list. Moving on. You cross a line, you need to know that you’re going to walk this earth knowing that there’s an individual who has no respect for you.”

this woman needs to shut her mouth it’s not always that easy to leave a marriage when you don’t feel loved she isn’t thinking about when their are children involved. she should ask Susan Newman who comes from divorced parents though she eventually became close to her stepmother Joanne Woodward and her mothers second husband and all told 4 half sisters Eleanor Melissa Claire & Augusta

# 2

she sounds strong, i like that

@courtney: Did you just read the title and decide to insult. Jared, like most gossip mongers, misled you with the title. She was speaking on a personal level and not generally.

# 4

I wonder what ex she is referring to. Is it someone we all know? LOL I kind of agree with her for once. I wouldn’t stay friends with someone who treated me like crap either.

# 5


She is talking relative to her experiences as a single woman dating…

So what if she is applying it to everyone…
I would rather have Zoe walk out on me than a cowards who stays till they have another security blanket…..and there are too many in showbiz to count

I would not describe her philosophy as strong..just truthful to herself about her emotional needs and what fulfills her.

I do realize that there are those who consider a thousand and one reasons why they need to stay with a man, but truly you do yourself a disservice, there are those who no resources who walk out because they are in a bad place…consider what kind of parent you will be or are to your children if the adults ARE UNHAPPY, ABUSIVE AND MISERABLE..

@courtney: what you stated makes no sense. What has the things Zoe said to do with becoming close to your stepmother and meeting your half sisters??? And all the other things she said??? And why are you so angry that you even feel the need to insult her???

# 7

She’s spot on about the ‘ex’ thing….!

# 8

Can someone explain to me what the heck @courtney is talking about? Because she makes no sense at all.

Between Zoe and Bradley’s ex wife the story seems the same. He is obviously very disrespectful to his partner and the one he has now is so young he can have absolute control.

@Erin: Zoe feels real secure and I like that. Why acting like you’re cool when he hurt and disprecpected you. I mean some men thing they are such a price that a woman will tolerate everything to keep them, even only as friends. Its good to show this men that they’re not.

She is strong. Before Cooper she had a relationship for 11 years. She is a woman who knows what she wants and she is not accepting any disrespect from her partner.

courtney what??? @ 07/14/2014 at 12:47 pm

I love her statement.

I like her @ 07/14/2014 at 12:51 pm

Zoe is a cool woman.

Barbie and Kent @ 07/14/2014 at 1:41 pm

Srong, independed talented women

Selena Gomez needs to read this!

She is great.

she’s cool – more chicks should read this

yep i cosign.

Totally agree with her insights. She very secure with herself and that’s admirable.

She is doing it right. Too many men think they can do whatever they want and the woman has to be ok with it.

Never seen any of her movies. But I already really like her pants. And her smile ain’t that bad either….
