Zoe Saldana Almost Quit Acting After Her Role in 'Pirates of the Caribbean': 'It Was Very Elitist'
Here’s what the 36-year-old pregnant Guardians of the Galaxy star had to share with the mag:
On almost quitting acting after Pirates of the Carribbean: “It was very elitist. I almost quit the business. I was 23 years old, and I was like, “F— this!” I am never putting myself in this situation again. People disrespecting me because they look at my number on a call sheet and they think I’m not important. F— you.”
On rumors that she only knew her husband a few months before their wedding: “No! I’ve known my partner for five years. I knew of his work. I knew of him. Then we met. And months later, we both made the decision to do what we both individually vowed never to do — to get married…. And as soon as we decided we were going to get married, we didn’t wait. We did it three weeks later. That part was very, very quick.”
On Hollywood and race: “I don’t want to spend my life thinking about all the impossibilities I face when I wake up in the morning. But the reality is, I’m a woman of color in America. That itself is enough for you to wake up and go, “Oh, f—!”
On plot details of Star Trek 3: “All I know is that the producers of Trek 3 called the producers of Avatar 2 to find out when Avatar will finish shooting.”
