Zoe Saldana Talks About Balancing Work & Becoming a Mom
The 36-year-old pregnant actress recently opened up about how she plans to balance both the Avatar and Star Trek sequels.
“I know that we will work everything out. I have to say, I’m very lucky,” Zoe told EW. “The great thing is that all the producers and creators involved in the projects that I’ve done—Avatar, Star Trek, and Guardians—they’re very good people. So they’ve been very understanding, especially with what’s happening in my personal life. I’ve gotten nothing but support. To know that we are getting to that place where women can have that support from male driven workforces is—I have to say, it’s very inspiring.”
Zoe added, “And also, they don’t have a choice! I’m not going to rip my child off my tit to go work. And if I do that, then maybe you shouldn’t hire me because I am willing to sell anything. [Laughs] It’s nature! Like, you just cannot do it. What kind of mother would I be? There’s no choice. It’s like, ‘What, you want me to leave my newborn so that I can work 16 hours on your set? He’s only a month old, are you out of your mind?’”
