Zoe Saldana covers the latest issue of Net-A-Porter's "The Edit." See what Zoe said about her marriage and constantly challenging herself inside..
Dressed in a white Thakoon dress (above) and an Alexander McQueen dress on the cover, Rosemary's Baby star Zoe Saldana covers Net-A-Porter's The Edit's "Accessories Issue" where the latest accessories are paired with the season's hottest fashions.
Inside the accompanying profile called "The Woman Within", Zoe is keeping it chic and sexy in the season's IT colors of neutrals and metallics. And the newlywed opens up about her wedding (she wanted it to be discreet), staying in shape (she hasn't worked out in a year!) and reveals why she's so ambitious (she loves a challenge). Here are the highlights:
On keeping her body fit:
“I’ve been an active person my whole life. The past year has been the only time in my life that I haven’t been to the gym. I’ve been lazy instead of training for something and pushing myself.” That inbuilt vigor, she says, is “not because I am trying to be skinny. I just like to know how much endurance I have. But this past year I’ve let myself go,” she continues, with pride rather than guilt. “I’ve been eating a lot of Chinese, pasta, rice, beans...”
On her under-the-radar wedding:
“I’m not a private person, but I am discreet, so it felt right.”
On fashion police:
“I don’t care what people think. If I did, I’d be at a different place in life, but I don’t. I can’t fake it. I follow my heart or my friends’ advice. Petra Flannery, my stylist is paramount when it comes to my fashion radar; she pushes me to evolve.”
On her career ambition:
"I have ADD, I’m a Gemini and I get bored quickly. So my next challenge is to direct, because I’m getting tired of just being a particle in the whole telling of the story. I want to be more. I want to be there from its conception.”
In addition to the upcoming biopic of Nina Simone, Hollywood is buzzing that Zoe might also playEartha Kitt in a forthcoming movie.
