Earlier this week we discussed Zoe Saldana’s cover of Allure Magazine (you know, the one that calls out her weight as 115 pounds on the cover). Anyhoo, when she wasn’t complaining about not getting to play Nina Simone, she was also talking about how she could see herself with a woman, raising children. “I might end up with a woman raising my children. That’s how androgynous I am.” She used the word androgynous, which she clearly doesn’t understand the definition of. Androgynous means “having the characteristics or nature of both male and female.” I think what Zoe MEANT was she could see herself ending up being bisexual, but whatevs.
Anyway, on the red carpet yesterday for the premiere of Star Trek: Into Darkness, certain reporters asked her to clarify what she meant by androgynous.
Zoe Saldana’s new interview with Allure magazine has attracted a lot of attention — in more ways than one. In addition to posing nude for the June issue, the 34-year-old Star Trek Into Darkness actress allowed the magazine to print her weight on the front cover and opened up about her sexuality in a revealing profile within.
Under Saldana’s name on the gorgeous cover, Allure wrote, “115 pounds of grit and heartache.” Inside the issue, Saldana showed off her slim figure in a sexy photo shoot that included a fully nude shot.
Saldana, who split from Bradley Cooper earlier this year, also said she may consider dating a woman in the future. “[I might] end up with a woman raising my children,” she explained of her sexuality. “That’s how androgynous I am.”
When asked if she’s ever been in a relationship with a woman before, Saldana said, “Promise me one thing: You’re going to ask this question [in the article]—- if you choose to, just put three dots as my response. That’s it.”
At the Hollywood premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness on Tuesday, May 14, Saldana further explained her quotes to reporters. “It wasn’t a generalization. It was a statement that I strongly stand by,” she said of calling herself “androgynous.”
“I said it and they literally put it word for word. I guess what I was trying to let the world understand is that it’s everybody’s decision to do whatever they want to do and who they love is their own personal decision.”
“As of today, I’ve been attracted to the male species but if one day I wake up and I want to be with a woman, I will do that because it is my life and therefore it is my decision.”
Okay sure. Whatever. So about this dress she’s wearing. What do we think?? I think she could make a paper bag look good, so on HER it’s not that bad, I guess….but it is an interesting dress, no?
