Zoe Saldana is Women’s Health September 2011 cover girl. In the interview, the 33-year-old actress dishes on her exercise routine, on the training period for ‘Colombiana’, and she also reveals a few things regarding her healthy lifestyle and her thoughts on her male costars. Zoe has recently graced the cover of three September 2011 magazine issues. You can find the beautiful starlet on the cover of Ebony, Women’s Health, and Latina. Besides, she was also featured in the GQ September 2011 issue.
Zoe admitted she is more like the boyish type and it seems that she has no restrictions whatsoever when it comes to interviews. The ‘Avatar’ actress dishes in the September issue of Women’s Health on her midnight tattoo sprees (“We woke up the next morning and were like, ‘That totally [bleepin’] happened!’?”), dietary quirks (“Call me crazy — I love elk meat!”), and deep appreciation for bodacious women (“Christina Hendricks? Gabow!”).
The actress spent most of her early childhood in Queens, New York, and then moved to the Dominican Republic until she was 17 when she came back to the States. Speaking about her lifestyle, Zoe admitted that she is constantly looking to stay healthy. “I’m always trying to find a new way of living that’s healthier for my body,” she says in the cover story.
The actress, who confessed she’s more like a guy’s girl, is playing Cataleya Restrepo in her upcoming thriller ‘Colombiana’. Zoe started training five to six hours a day three months before filming doing a mix of cardio, light weights, core moves, and martial arts. “Physical roles give me a chance to learn something new. Like the fact that I can grab a gun, disassemble it, and put it back together. I’m a girl from Queens. I’ve never gone, ‘What am I doing today? Oh, I’m gonna grab a gun and learn how to use it,'” Zoe told Women’s Health.
Now, the actress has already started working on her next film, ‘The Words’. Still, she says she would love to take a break. “Too much work, not enough fun. I may need a year off to stay in bed and have the people I love screen my calls,” she says.
Zoe also reveals a few things about her male costars. Speaking about her ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl’ costar, Orlando Bloom, the actress says that, “Orli is a real English gentleman. He can hang out with girls in the same way that he can hold his own with a bunch of guys.”
