Zoe Saldana Talks Sexism and Learning to Say 'No'
Zoe Saldana opens up with a group of girlfriends in a new video to discuss overcoming sexism and negativity towards in the workplace.
The 38-year-old actress was joined by her sisters Mariel and Cisely, who she co-founded production company Cinestar Pictures with, as well as actress Shanna Malcolm, The Art of Elysium founder Jennifer Howell and Awestruck vlogger Roxy Limon as the ladies touched on some important topics.
“As women, we have to learn to feel extremely comfortable with the word ‘no.’ The word ‘no’ is the most positive term we will ever know as a woman because the moment you wake up as a woman…you’re going to deal with so many more obstacles than man will deal with on an average basis. So if you’re not comfortable with the word ‘no’ you’re going to become a very unhappy individual,” Zoe explains.
She added, “It took me many years, in my profession, to learn to say ‘no’ not based on privilege, based on principle.”
