Zoe Saldana was all smiles for the upcoming April cover of US magazine Nylon. We're used to seeing her in an array of gorgeous gowns during award season, but the Avatar star got casual and colourful for the accompanying shoot. We'll get lots more of Zoe this year with The Losers and Takers hitting the big screen and, in the interview, she got a little reflective about her newfound power in Hollywood and what it was like first meeting James Cameron. Zoe said:
- On moving from NYC to the Dominican Republic at 9: "We went from this urban life to running around barefoot in the countryside and being taught how to gut fish. We were learning how to climb coconut trees—let me tell you, they are f*cking dangerous!"
- On meeting James Cameron: "I’m thinking he probably imagined some Amazonian girl [for Neytiri]—I had really long hair at the time—wearing really little s*it with like, a bow and arrow. I had no idea she was blue and nine feet tall. But for some reason, he was like, 'You look so much like her!'"
- On her new Hollywood competition: "Whatever role Angela Bassett or Kate Winslet can get, I can certainly at least get through that door."
