Zoe Saldana strikes a pose in Bebe on the cover of Cosmopolitan for Latinas‘ premiere issue, which hits newsstands May 1.
Here’s what the 33-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On being a Latina: “People think of Latina women as being fiery and fierce, which is usually true. But I think the quality that so many Latinas possess is strength. I’m very proud to have Latin blood.”
On being a ballerina in her teens: “I had to quit ballet because it felt like a part of me was dying inside. It takes a lot of courage to face up to things you can’t do because we feed ourselves so much denial … In dance you use every party of your body except your voice. I wanted to start acting because I wanted to use my voice.”
