Zoe Saldana was fine learning who she was before husband, baby


Actress Zoe Saldana has been very vocal about her path of self-discovery and being OK with her mistakes along her journey. So many of us are struggling to get to that place right now, too.

Before news of her pregnancy broke, which she wasn’t thrilled about, Saldana did a beautiful nude cover for the September 2014 issue of Women’s Health UK. Not only has the Guardians of the Galaxy” actress had to learn to be comfortable with her mistakes, she’s also learning to accept her body despite changes she’s less than enthused about.

“My body is less toned. I do look in the mirror and see things I don’t want. My first reaction is I breathe and I think, ‘I’m a woman, I’m 36, my body is changing,’ ” said Saldana.

During the interview, Saldana also spoke about husband of one year, artist Marco Perego. Perego was a nice addition to her life, but she was fine learning about herself before he came along.

“We give each other a great deal of support and love but it wasn’t because we found it in each other, we came that way and then got together.  That’s what I love about it. I do believe whatever’s meant to be will be — but had the universe said,  ‘Let’s just wait, he’s going to come into your life later,’ I would’ve been fine on this journey I was on just knowing who the f— I was.”

That, my friends, is why Saldana has many fans — she’s unabashedly honest.
