Zoe Saldana wasn’t always the way she is today. She used to be meek and put the needs of others before her own. Thus she would end up regretting her every decision and be left behind in the rat race as the proverbial loser.
But today all that is in the past. She decided a long time ago that she would never kowtow to others and since that fateful day her life has been literally transformed.
Now she is a strong and independent woman who likes to have her own way and is not afraid to speak her mind. And the proof of her choice is her husband Marco Perego with whom she has been married for over a year or so.
"I hate the sensation that you have when you get home and you think, 'I'm a coward. I didn't speak up. I didn't defend myself. I didn't say no,' " she told PEOPLE while promoting Guardians of the Galaxy on Saturday.
"I wanted to please others more than I wanted to please myself, and I [would] find myself embarrassed to look in the mirror. I promised myself, by my own will, that I'm not going to do it anymore."
Zoe Saldana tells it like it is that her husband was her option due to love and attraction and not out of any pressure from external sources.
And Zoe changed her personality way before she got married to Marco. She is happy at this fact and says that being mature before marriage is a plus point indeed.
"We found each other, and it was that desire and not that necessity that put us together," said Saldana.
And her husband really adores her. So much so that he tattooed her face on his arm. She loves him for it but also said that she tried to make him change his mind about it. She has done far more wackier things in the past than that though.
"I'm where I wanted to be when I would look at myself and say, 'I just have a feeling that it's going to get better, that I'm going to find who I truly am more and more, and I'm going to stick to that road,' " she said.
"I'm very happy that it happened before I met him, because I didn't want somebody to give me the answers that I should find for myself."
Finally, Zoe Saldana, 36, was detected at the premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy wearing a very beautiful gown at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on July 21, 2014. She sported a baby bump which provoked questions as to her being pregnant.
But Zoe has not yet commented regarding her supposed pregnancy to the media. She likes to keep things private and confidential.
Her "gorgeous dress featured a floral sheer top worn over a white bra, paired with a shimmery floral skirt that was jagged across the bottom and accented with a white belt in the shape of a T. She wore her hair in a sleek bob and sported a bold red lipstick," according to HL. Her dress was matched by Jimmy Choo sandals which complemented the floral prints of the ensemble.
Saldana is indeed a hot babe with the sort of personality that takes no prisoners. She has the confidence and the self respect that wins admiration from not only the media but also her countless fans.
