Actress Zoe Saldana graces the July 2015 cover of InStyle Magazine, looking summer ready in a blue Dolce & Gabbana dress with Dior Fine Jewelry. The star of the upcoming Nina Simone biopic talks to the magazine about her husband taking her last name, post-baby body and having a mixed-race family.
On her husband taking her last name:
“I tried to talk him out of it. I told him, ‘If you use my name, you’re going to be emasculated b your community of artists, by your Latin community of men, by the world.’ But Marco [Perego] looks up at me and says [she puts on a cute Italian accent], ‘Ah, Zoe, I don’t give a sheet.’”
On her post-pregnancy body:
“I don’t want to get back to where I used to be. I want to feel healthy, and not just fit into the old jeans I used to wear. I’m a woman now. My body has changed forever. It’s softer… and stronger.”
On her mixed-race family:
“What was important for my mother is that we married somebody who still had dreams and aspirations–not what color or class they were from.”
