Zoe Saldana on Her Twin Boys: They're 'Savages & Super Playful & Spontaneous'
Here’s what the 38-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On saying yes to Ben Affleck’s ask to star in Live by Night: “I would have never considered gangster movies. I was like, ‘Me? It’s a period piece—I do more future stuff.’ And then I just told myself, ‘Why not just work with Ben Affleck? Why not just play an Afro-Cuban that sells molasses to make rum in the 1920s in Florida?’ Like, ‘Why not do that?’”
On being a parent to twin boys: “I would think it would slow me down, and it hasn’t. I have all this energy now for so many things that I want to do. It’s fantastic having twins. This is something that we certainly didn’t plan for. We wanted to start a family, but being blessed with a two-in-one shot is great. I grew up in a family of women. Now I have these three gentlemen who I’m living with, and who are just Mowglis: savages and super playful and spontaneous. I’m encouraged to keep up. I drank the Kool-Aid, and I love it!”
On making her marriage work: “We plan everything together—that way nobody feels slighted. We’re unconditional with each other: unconditionally supportive of each other’s careers, and professions, and desires, and goals. But we can only be this by having absolute transparency. When we hit a road block, then we take the time to figure how we’re going to move that block and keep moving on down the road.”
