Zoe Saldana secretly tied the knot to Italian artist Marco Perego two years ago this month, but in a recent interview, Saldana mentioned something not quite so traditional about their marriage.
He took her last name.
“I tried to talk him out of it,” Saldana said to InStyle. “I told him, ‘If you use my name, you’re going to be emasculated by your community of artists, by your Latin community of men, by the world.’”
According to Saldana, her husband does not mind.
“Marco looks up at me and says, ‘Ah, Zoe, I don’t give a s–t.”
The couple have two boys together – twins, that were born in November named, Bowie Ezio and Cy Aridio.
Mr. Saldana has been very supportive when it came to his wife’s post-baby body.
“Yesterday we took our friend out for sushi and I swear I ate everything and the kitchen sink,” she said, according to Us Magazine.
“Right before I started my typical routine of self-loathing Marco looked at me and said, ‘Z, it’s okay. Start again tomorrow.’ I loved him for that, he reminded me there always tomorrow to make right what you have undone today. I’m also reminded that this is for life and not a temporary fix. So why am I going to add more stress to my life by putting a deadline on my healthy lifestyle.”
Perhaps Marco is making few non-believers take notice.
