Zoe Saldana Opens Up About Her Post-Pregnancy Body

Zoe Saldana Opens Up About Her Post-Pregnancy Body

Zoe Saldana looks stunning in her Dolce & Gabbana dress while posing for the cover of InStyle‘s July 2015 issue, on newsstands June 15.

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

On her husband taking her last name: “I tried to talk him out of it. I told him, ‘If you use my name, you’re going to be emasculated by your community of artists, by your Latin community of men, by the world.’ But Marco [Perego] looks up at me and says [she puts on a cute Italian accent], ‘Ah, Zoe, I don’t give a sheet.’”

On her post-pregnancy body: “I don’t want to get back to where I used to be. I want to feel healthy, and not just fit into the old jeans I used to wear. I’m a woman now. My body has changed forever. It’s softer… and stronger.”

On how motherhood changed her marriage: “Finally, when we had our boys, I looked at my husband and I realized: I was meant for you, and you were meant for me. I’ve always felt comfortable around men as long as they were my friends. Now I finally feel comfortable with my lover.”

Also pictured inside: Zoe and Marco going on a double date with Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden at the U2 concert at the The Forum on Wednesday (June 3) in Inglewood, Calif.
