Zoe Saldana Talks 'Live by Night,' Gushes About Ben Affleck

Zoe Saldana is opening up about her role in the upcoming film Live by Night.

In the period crime drama, the 38-year-old actress is involved with individuals who deal in the world of organized crime during the Prohibition Era.

While Zoe has a lot of sci-fi films on her resume – such as Star Trek, Avatar, and Guardians of the Galaxy – she says that filming movies set closer to Earth are just as fulfilling, in a different way.

“I get the same thing I get out of doing films set in space,” Zoe told the Los Angeles Daily News regarding Live by Night. “I get to challenge myself, I get to have a director like Ben [Affleck] convince me that I can pull it off, that I have more to contribute to cinema besides what I’ve done so far. I’m continuously growing and I should never stop that evolution in my work.”

“So for me to go back 80, 90 years and play an Afro-Cuban in the 1920s in the South of America was enlightening,” Zoe added. “It was extremely painful and, also, inspiring, I was deeply moved. Ben’s approach was not sympathetic, it was absolutely empathetic. It was a testament to not just who he is as a filmmaker, but who he is as a person. He grew up outside of Boston with so many cultures around him that he was actually curious about. And now as a filmmaker he can explore that, and he’s showcased all of these cultures in America, just trying to get by, you know? I think it brings a whole different layer to gangster movies.”

Live by Night hits limited theaters on December 25 and opens nationwide on January 13, 2017!

Zoe Saldana on Her Twin Boys: They're 'Savages & Super Playful & Spontaneous'

Zoe Saldana looks so sultry on the cover of LA Confidential magazine’s new issue.

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.”
