Zoe Saldana Says Starring In Sci-Fi Films Gives Her The Ability To Be Color Blind!

Zoe Saldana is opening up about why she finds roles in sci-fi blockbusters like her very own Avatar, Star Trek and Guardians Of The Galaxy so appealing.

“I get to imagine the unimaginable. I’m always in awe of writers, directors and actors who are able to pull off a world we’ve never seen – I love working with people who let their imaginations go,” the 38-year-old actress recently expressed (via Daily Telegraph).

“Plus, you get to play characters who defy gravity. I like that,” Zoe added. “It makes me feel superhuman because, obviously, it’s been brought to my attention continuously since I was born that I’m not a conventional person because of the colour of my skin or my gender or my cultural background. So I think science fiction has given me the ability as an artist to be colourblind, and gender-blind, and to imagine and reinvent myself and be the chameleon actors are supposed to be.”

    stupid comment Mrs Saldana isn’t very bright is she disabilities make life harder not easier why doesn’t she ask Paul Newman’s daughters what it’s like to have a relative who is/was color blind especially his younger three who all inherited his sparkling blue eyes as blue is dominant over green like their mother Joanne Woodward has though hers have a ribbon of blue in the iris becuase of him and their girls
