Zoe Saldana is gorgeous, sexy, fascinating, and her resumé features a starring role in Britney Spears‘ Crossroads (which, if you ask me, got snubbed at the 2002 Oscars). She’s also managed to keep a relatively low profile– she got married this summer and nobody knew about it for months– but Zoe has apparently decided that it’s time to get talked about. Her interview in this February’s issue of Lucky touches on body image, fashion, feminism, and… breasts. Basically, everything we’re about.
When asked about her sense of style, Saldana describes fashion as “an art– an absolute art,” and says she doesn’t give “two shits” what anyone thinks of her clothes. She elaborates:
At the moment I conceived wearing an outfit, I had a thousand reasons. And now that it’s done, and I’m getting feedback that’s not positive, I’m going to regret it? I take responsibility for my actions, whether the outcome is positive or negative.
We critique red carpet fashion on this site, obviously, but we try to support women even when we’re tearing apart specific outfits. It’s good to know that one of our fashion favorites has thick skin and likes to have fun with her clothes– without taking the criticism too seriously.
And speaking of not taking things too seriously, Saldana’s opinions on plastic surgery are equally offbeat:
My whole life I’ve been obsessed with breasts. I love them. I don’t like fake things, but I wouldn’t mind buying myself a pair one day before I die.
We tend to feel a similar way about plastic surgery– no praise for doing it, but no shame, either. There’s something charming about her nonchalant attitude.
Equally charming is the way she balances the feminine and masculine aspects of her style, and how she feels like her clothes send a message about who she is. “I like looking strong,” she tells Lucky. “I don’t need somebody to open the door for me. I can open the jar!” Yes you can, you endearing badass. Yes you can.
