From “Guardians of the Galaxy” green to front page blue denim, this cover girl, 36, shows off her feisty true colors when it comes to relationships -- both past and present.
Intolerant of disrespect, Saldana likes to tie up all the loose ends with her exes. “I have been in relationships where a man has disrespected me, and I don’t need to be friends with that man anymore. I don’t want to be the one going, ‘I’m cool, because I’m friends with all my exes.’ There’s a reason why you’re called an ex. I crossed you off my list. Moving on. You cross a line, you need to know that you’re going to walk this earth knowing that there’s an individual who has no respect for you.”
The actress and the Italian artist Marco Perego were married in a secret ceremony in July of last year just outside of London. “I don’t do the ABCs. I do what my heart says, what my heart feels. So from the moment I met my husband, we were together. We knew.”
If you're unsure exactly who Zoe has “exed-out,” we know that in 2011, the “Avatar” superstar called off her engagement and 11-year relationship with entrepreneur Keith Britton. Shortly after, Zoe and "The Words" co-star Bradley Cooper were reportedly on-again/off-again from late 2011 through early 2013.
The sexy Saldana told Marie Claire what she learned most from all her relationships was “not to settle.”
“If you’re not happy with a person, leave. And wait until you find that one person who makes you feel good about yourself every single day and is not expecting you to change, but to grow.”
