In honour of the Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 film, being released in South African cinemas today, we’re taking a close look at the enchanting Zoe Saldana.
Zoe Yadira Saldaña-Nazario, plainly known as Zoe Saldana, has been in the entertainment world for more than 17 years, and her role as an actress has not gone unseen. She takes on a variety of film roles – from the striking beauty to an incredible alien life form. Her career boasts highlights such as award-winning films, theatre productions, dance accolades and multiple TV series roles. She may not be an Academy Award winner, but Zoe is definitely a memorable woman and entertainer.
We’ve come up with five reasons why we just can’t get enough of her, and why you should keep your eye on her in the future.
Zoe’s Haitian and Lebanese roots have truly blessed her with timeless beauty. She is yet to have any plastic surgery done and maintains a healthy, balanced lifestyle, that includes pilates and healthy eating habits.
Zoe adores animals, especially man’s best friend. Her love for dogs is genuine and she’s even adopted a rescue dog named Mugsy.
Her outfit choices are never boring! Zoe can go from elegant to avant-garde quite effortlessly. The fact that she exudes confidence is just an added bonus. She is also often endorsed by brands such as Calvin Klein and L’Oreal.
Ready To help
Her charitable efforts go as far as fundraising for children and supporting causes, such as the EB Medical Research Foundation and The Trevor Project.
A Great Mom
Zoe will not hesitate to take time off from work for her family. When it comes to being a mom she keeps it one hundred percent real! With hubby, Marco Perego, at her side she loves and cherishes her boys, and often shares her family adventures on social media for us to see.
