Zoe Saldana Interview – Star Trek Beyond – “I’m very pro-women, but God sends me men to raise!”


She stars in three of the biggest box office franchises: Star Trek, Avatar and Guardians of the Galaxy, but Zoe Saldana, 38, says being a strong female role model is more important to her than her career.

Its an irony, she says, that she should now find herself raising twin boys, after spending her career breaking barriers for women.


Q: Would you describe yourself as a geek?

ZS: Yes! I just have a good team of people that put me together but when I’m in jeans and a shirt, I’m reading books and I’m going on adventures which is what I love. That’s why I do what I do because I’m a huge lover of story-telling.
