Zoe’s like, soooo deep… and stuff! Zoe Saldana covers the January issue of Modern Luxury’s Manhattan magazine to promote her new film, Out of the Furnace, which costars Christian Bale, Woody Harrelson, and Casey Affleck. Zoe plays Bale’s lover, and the movie is a gritty crime drama.
Boy Zoe sure stays swirling in real life and on the big screen!!!
Here are some excerpts from the interview:
On gender injustice:
“It’s very hard being a woman in a man’s world, and I recognized it was a man’s world even when I was a kid. It’s an inequality and injustice that drove me crazy, and which I always spoke out against – and I’ve always been outspoken. I love learning new skills, especially those you’re told girls aren’t good at – like parallel parking. Hey, I’m going to learn to ride a Ducati!”
She doesn’t do “generic” or “sexy bombshell” characters:
“I’m known for being selective in parts I either pick or pursue, and what matters most is that they be good female roles where the character isn’t cardboard or objectified, and where there’s real substance. No generic girlfriend or wife, and no sexy bombshell. Enough of that already!”
Okay Zoe we get it, only way you will play sexy is if you are kicking butt at the same time and we guess you won’t be doing any “Drumline” sequels, eh?
Her family’s work ethic:
“My sisters and I weren’t raised to be princesses; we were taught to want love and to recognize love, but not to be tempted to sacrifice things you can provide for yourself for love. We were taught to work.”
Zoe is serious bidness ain’t she?
Here’s a shot of her on the set of “Extra” Monday afternoon:
