 Actress Zoe Saldana on the set of 'Nina' in Los Angeles, CA on October 25th, 2012. The movie tells the story of the late jazz musician and classical pianist Nina Simone including her rise to fame and relationship with her manager Clifton Henderson.

She looks almost unrecognizable, but is it enough for people to buy her as Nina? More photos of Zoe Saldana on the set of the upcoming Nina Simone biopic have been released and she’s looking slightly more transformed.

There’s a gang of pictures from the set which you can compare to this one of Nina in 1968. Zoe is looking kinda stressed in some of these. Do you think the pressure is getting to her with so many naysayers saying she’s all wrong for the film.

Since clearly nothing is changed, is it time to start showing her some support? Please discuss!
