Before Zoe Saldana’s pregnancy became too obvious to hide, she did a nude photoshoot for Women’s Health U.K. In the interview that accompanies the photos, the Guardians of the Galaxy star talked about her body, the perfect topic for the magazine’s Body of Life campaign.
“My body is less toned. I do look in the mirror and see things I don't want,” the 36-year-old star of Avatar and the new Star Trek movies told the magazine, reports E! News. “My first reaction is I breathe and I think, 'I'm a woman. I'm 36. My body is changing.'”
While Saldana said that she occasionally feels beautiful, there are other times that she wasn’t happy with her body.
“Because there have been times that I was really slender and I didn't like that I sometimes looked a little too muscular and flat chested,” she explained. “You'll never be completely happy, so at the end of the day it's like, 'F**k it. Just be happy, regardless.'”
As the New York Daily News points out, Saldana did talk a bit about her marriage to Marco Perego.
“We give each other a great deal of support and love, but it wasn't because we found it in each other,” she said. “We came that way and then got together.”
However, she didn’t comment on her pregnancy, but admitted that she’s recently had to let her body go. “This past year I've had to start letting go. My body dictated it as if saying, 'Slow the f--k down!'” she told the magazine. “And I struggle with that. I love to be an athlete.”
