One of the highest-paid actors in the Hollywood industry, Zoe Saldana is known for acting in movies like Avatar and Guardians of The Galaxy, among others. The actress has featured in three highest-grossing films of all time comprising Avatar, Avatar: The Way of Water, and Avengers: Endgame. She proved herself as an ace actor in a large number of dramas and is an excellent voice-over artist as well.
The actress played the lead in Chris Evans’ movie, The Losers in 2010. The actress shared in an interview that she refused her n*de scene in the film as it was not necessary.
Zoe Saldana demanded the removal of n*dity scenes from The Losers
The Adam Project actress had once raised concerns about her n*de scene in a movie. Her character was supposed to be completely naked in the action movie The Losers. However, the actress felt the n*dity scene was not needed for the action thriller film. Hence, she approached the director and producer about her reservations on the topic of n*dity.
Zoe Saldana as Gamora
“The way that scene was written in the original script, my character was naked. I literally told the director, ‘If I am going to do this scene, there is no way I’m going to be nude because it just isn’t necessary or even believable.’”
“So there was a negotiation and I ended up in my bra and panties. I don’t mind using my physical assets as a weapon, but there’s a limit,”
The filmmaker eventually acceded to Saldana’s request. The movie was a massive success with a gross income of $30 Million.
Zoe Saldana on doing graphic love scenes
Avengers: Endgame actress is much more comfortable doing graphic love-making scenes for a movie. The actress was in the role of Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy and Avatar franchise by James Cameron. The actress feels that sexuality in movies is often seen as too much of a taboo in America. Talking about the love scene in Avatar, she said there are numerous other subjects depicted in the film that can be considered more harmful than graphic love scenes.
Zoe Saldana shared in an interview with Essence,
“I love s*x. I love skin. I don’t believe the body is something to hide. I think in American society we’re messing up our kids by taking away the education on and awareness of our sexuality and replacing it with violence, guns, and video games and we’re breeding little criminals.”
Zoe Saldana was recently seen in the movie Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 and will be seen in Avatar Part 3 and Star Trek 4. Her previous film Avatar: The Way of Water was a massive success with a gross collection of $1.58 billion.i=
