Zoe Saldana Covers New Flare Magazine

Zoe “Nina Simone” Saldana is the featured specimen on Flare magazines January 2014 issue where she addresses what it’s like to be woman, especially one in the Hollywood…

On the power of women today:

“Women aren’t wimpy. They don’t complain all the time. They can open up jars! They can fucking save the day! They can support their whole family. They can support their men. Half of my friends make more money than their male partners.”

On her secret soft side:

“It’s so funny: The characters I played in Columbiana and Avatar, on the surface, there’s what appears to be strength, but it’s sugarcoating an immense vulnerability. I am tough, but I’m also a very vulnerable person. I trust everyone. For many years, I thought, I need to stop being this way, but no, I just need to learn from it.”

On the challenge of male-dominated sets:

“You have to learn from your experiences. I’ve been in compromising circumstances, and I wish I’d had the strength that I have now because I would have protected myself better. I would have stood up for myself better. Women are challenged every day and are sometimes encouraged to objectify themselves. And it hurts.”
