Zoe Saldana responds to being the first person to star in 4 films that made over $2 billion
January 24th, 2023 under Zoe Saldana. [ Comments: none ]

When you think of all of the huge movie stars like The Rock, Mark Wahlberg, Vin Diesel, Tom Cruise, Harrison Ford, and Shia LaBeouf, you would think that one of them would be the first one to star in four of the films that grossed over $2 billion. And you would be wrong.

That title goes to little Zoe Saldana, who stars in 4 of the only 6 films that have made that much money. They are Avatar which made $2.92 billion in 2009, followed by The Avengers: Endgame with $2.97 billion in 2019, Avengers: Infinity War which earned $2.04 billion the year before that, and finally, last year’s Avatar: The Way Of Water which has already made $2,026,675,670 and counting.

Not bad for a Puerto Rican/Dominican girl from NYC who probably weighs around 100 pounds.

And how does she feel about the honor? She wrote, “Wow! What can I say about today? It has been a rollercoaster of emotions for sure. Gratitude for the acknowledgment, and absolute exhilaration that I get to wake up every morning and go do what I love. Never in a million years did I ever aim to make history by being in these movies. I’ve always been lucky to have been chosen and asked to join these amazing, groundbreaking projects.

“Thank you to @jamescameronofficial @jamesgunn and @therussobrothers for trusting me with their vision.

“Thank YOU to all our fans for making these movies what they are today- history in the making!❤️”

I have been following her career since she made a little film called Center Stage. And now she is taking center stage in the biggest movies ever made.

Congrats! I can’t wait to see what blockbusters she does next!


The reason why Zoe Saldana is OK with you mispronouncing her last name
November 28th, 2022 under Zoe Saldana. [ Comments: none ]

If you mispronounce Barbra Steisand’s last name, she is going to let you know in not the nicest of ways. However, Zoe Saldana is OK with it.

This morning on Good Morning America the actress explained why. “I am a crossbreed [Puerto Rican and Dominican],” she said. “I was born and raised here in America. So it is whatever way people can pronounce it. We are just a melting pot of so many cultures. I don’t hold it against anybody.”

Do you hear that Katherine Heigl? We are Americans, and we are trying our best to understand everyone, their cultures, and how they say their names. Give them an A for effort. I have a common last name, and people still say it incorrectly. The way they say it makes it sound sexy. So I am OK with it.

Back to the Center Stage (because that is one of my favorite movies) star, how do people pronounce it? They either say Sal-dan-ah or Sal-don-ya.

Watch Zoe Saldana transform into Guardians of the Galaxy’s Gamora!
May 1st, 2017 under Zoe Saldana. [ Comments: none ]

A post shared by Zoe Saldana (@zoesaldana) on

As we know Zoe Saldana is not green, but her character in Guardians of the Galaxy is. How does she go from mom of three to Gamora? She shared the process with us in an Instagram video. While it doesn’t seem that bad, the 3 hours of makeup was cut down to 38 seconds. Even though the video was just over half a minute, you can see it is a lot of work to make her look the way she does. I have to say, I am not green with envy over what she has to through. Are you?


How many people does it take to make Zoe Saldana beautiful?
April 20th, 2017 under Zoe Saldana. [ Comments: none ]

Yesterday was the premiere for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Zoe Saldana wanted to make sure she looked her best for the red carpet. That is why she hired not one, not two, not three, not four but five people to make sure she looked like the huge movie star that she is. Personally, I think she would be centerstage with a 1/5th of those amount people working on her. She is a natural beauty!
