There is something about Zoe Saldana that you just cannot lay your finger upon. She has appeared in various movies up until now as a space age heroine which sets her apart from other ladies of the silver screen.

And although she is normally a friendly sort, you have been warned as far as getting on her wrong side is concerned. She can be bad and do all sorts of damage if you rub her the wrong way.
While growing up as a teen in the Dominican Republic she had quite a reputation as someone who was ready to inflict a hex or two on anyone who crossed her path. But in everyday life, she is a very straightforward and refreshingly positive person.
Zoe Saldana appears on tht cover of the August issue of Marie Claire. Her skin appears to be perfect despite the late hours that she remains awake until. That is thanks to L’Oreal which has Zoe as its spokeswoman.
Zoe Saldana has a sort of delicate China Girl-like beauty that exudes the feminine mystique. Yet she is very tough inside. What appears to be a damsel in distress from the outside is a mean ninja on the inside.
She is known for her fine taste in clothes. As she makes all sorts of gestures while talking and guffawing in the room where she is being interviewed, we notice that she is sipping on cucumber and apple juice.
This is proof of her iron-clad diet which keeps her fit as a fiddle. Her whole extended family lives in NYC. And she often visits them.
"I love coming to New York because my family is here," 36-year-old Zoe Saldana said in Marie Claire's August 2014 issue. "But I'm always busy working, so I make them all come sleep over with me."
Zoe has two sisters, Mariel and Cisely, with whom she runs the L.A.-based production company CineStar Productions.
"They bring their pillows, and we get extra beds," Saldana continues. "My grandma lies on the couch. It's just delicious."
She and her hubby Marco Perego are very close to each other. There is a lot of understanding between them.
"I don't do the ABCs. I do what my heart says, what my heart feels," says Saldana about her relationship with husband Marco Perego. "So from the moment I met my husband, we were together. We knew."
She repeats the maxim that if anyone shows her any lip, she will get into her act and diss him or her within a matter of seconds.
The biggest thing Zoe Saldana learned about relationships is "Not to settle." "If you're not happy with a person, leave," explained Zoe.
"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."
Zoe wants to appear as a Pharaoh’s Queen in some movie. "I would love to play Nefertiti or Cleopatra or the Queen of Sheba," says Saldana.
"We preserve more male history than we do female. We have to preserve it. No more complaining. We have to do it."
And finally she attributes how she was brought up in the Dominican Republic as a reason behind her kick-ass persona.
"I had many female bullies growing up who wanted us to be submissive and to follow and to kiss ass, and that's the last thing any Saldana will ever do, honestly," she says on growing up in Dominican Republic.
Zoe Saldana's upcoming film is Guardians of the Galaxy that will hit theaters this month. Watch Zoe playing the deadliest woman on earth in the trailer below
