Zoe Saldana stars in the upcoming extraterrestrial superhero movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, as Hollywood’s go-to intergalactic butt-kicker. As we soon find out in her chat with Marie Claire, she’s just as feisty and fearless off-screen, as she is on-screen.
Zoe will be featured in the August issue of the mag, but we’ve got some tidbits for you below that proves that she’s just as strong in real life as the heroines she portrays.
On her relationship with husband Marco Perego: “I don’t do the ABCs. I do what my heart says, what my heart feels. So from the moment I met my husband, we were together. We knew.”
On the biggest thing she’s learned about relationships: “Not to settle. If you’re not happy with a person, leave. And wait until you find that one person who makes you feel good about yourself every single day and is not expecting you to change, but to grow.”
On disrespect: “I have been in relationships where a man has disrespected me, and I don’t need to be friends with that man anymore. I don’t want to be the one going, ‘I’m cool, because I’m friends with all my exes.’ There’s a reason why you’re called an ex. I crossed you off my list. Moving on. You cross a line, you need to know that you’re going to walk this earth knowing that there’s an individual who has no respect for you.”
