Now that’s how you bounce back! Zoe Saldana is back on the scene and she’s slaying as she usually does- long legs and all! The actress is the new cover star for Latina Magazine’s December 2015/January 2016 issue with an exclusive interview and editorial shots- pretty much showing the world a perfect example of brains and beauty! Inside the issue Zoe talks family and being a mom to her two twin boys Cy and Bowie. With the holidays approaching she shared with Latina Mag how she is passing along Spanish Christmas songs sung to her as a child onto her boys (peep the video below). She also dishes on her bond with her sisters Cisely and Mariel saying “It was always our dream since we were little girls to be together. We love cinema. We love art. We love storytelling. But even in those common interests, we each have a different approach. Cisely is very much a producer and loves television. Mariel is all about education as an R.N. and EMT. I was always into acting. I love interpretation, ‘el arte surreal,’ ‘la literatura,’ ‘el baile,’ mixing everything.”
On a heavier note the actress talks immigration- a touchy subject for her. “This topic of immigration hurts because I don’t want to be angry anymore. I don’t believe that what anybody else is saying is true about me or my people. I’m kind of embarrassed when you see all of these people talking on national television, and it’s like, ‘Oh my God, if your grandfather were alive today, when he came here from Ireland, from Italy, escaped the f*cking war in Russia. You’re rotting his name to shame. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, or how many degrees from Ivy League schools. You’re such a bigot. You’re such a hick right now.’ People have to be open to the reality of what’s happening in our country.”
As for her role in the Nina Simone she says “Still to this day, I can’t listen to her music. I’ll be able to listen to her and not feel so heartbroken once I either finish this movie and release it, knowing that we did the best we could, or this movie goes away. I pray that somebody tells her story and they do it amazingly well.”
Well there you have it! Take a peek at some if the stunning editorial shots plus a behind the scenes video below before the new issue hits newsstands November 10th!
