Zoe Saldana Says Hollywood Should Pay For Childcare

zoe saldana

Zoe Saldana is pretty well known (in my book, at least) for saying dumb things more often than not, so I’m not at all surprised at the latest bit of horseshit that’s come out of her mouth during an interview. As you know, Zoe recently gave birth to twins and she’s loving being a mom. She also loves being famous and getting paid millions of dollars to be mediocre in movies. But that’s not really enough compensation. Actually, Zoe thinks Hollywood needs to be paying for childcare for her kids, since she’s making such a huge sacrifice by gracing us with her presence in Hollywood.

From USA Today:

Still, studios “spend more money sometimes ‘perking’ up male superstars in a movie,” she says, paying for private jets, a coterie of assistants and bodyguards or booking “a really phat penthouse or them staying in a yacht instead of them staying on land.”

“But then a woman comes in going, ‘OK, I have a child. You’re taking me away from my home. You’re taking my children away from their home. And you’re going to make me work a lot more hours than I usually would if I was home. Therefore, I would have to pay for this nanny for more hours — so I kind of need that. And they go, ‘Nope, we don’t pay for nannies.’ “

Okay, here’s the thing. Do I think companies in general should be more supportive of working parents (not just mothers) and, if possible, provide care while the parents work. HOWEVER, it’s pretty fucking rich that this woman is a multi-millionaire WHO ALREADY HAS A NANNY and is seriously bitching that a movie studio that’s already paying her an exorbitant amount of money won’t also pay for her childcare, which she would have anyway, even if she wasn’t working. Are you kidding me right now?

Of course, she isn’t campaigning for working mothers making minimum wage and struggling to make ends meet get childcare. No, she’s just worried about herself because she has to part with a few dollars of her tons of money to pay someone to look after her kids.  Ugh, Zoe Saldana is THE WORST.

Zoe Saldana Says Her Husband Insisted On Taking Her Last Name

zoe saldana marco perego

Zoe Saldana is basically the worst with everything that ever comes out of her mouth, but whatever. I guess if we didn’t have people who walked around with their heads stuck so far up their own asses, the world would be a boring place. The latest story Zoe felt we needed to hear was about the fact that her husband, Marco Perego, was just so desperate to take HER last name instead of the other way around after they got married.

From InStyle (via Refinery29):

“I tried to talk him out of it,” Zoe told InStyle. “If you use my name, you’re going to be emasculated by your community of artists, by your Latin community of men, by the world.”

But Marco wasn’t having it. 

Instead, the Italian painter and sculptor stood his ground with the cutest response ever: “Ah Zoe, I don’t give a shit.”

Okey doke, whatever. I’m not quite sure what the point of this tale is. That her last name is so good that OBVIOUSLY he would want to take it? That she’s bagged the best man on earth ever because he’s just ~so romantic~ and a real feminist? I just don’t get it.

Zoe Saldana thinks Dolce & Gabbana boycott is dumb

zoe saldana

I’ve never had much time for Zoe Saldana – she’s always saying obnoxious shit and she’s not even that great of an actress, so she’s whatever in my books. With all that in mind, I suppose it shouldn’t be surprising that she’s decided to sound off on the fact that a lot of celebs have promised to refrain from buying Dolce & Gabbana after their offensive and reductive comments about children conceived via IVF. To Zoe, boycotting the brand is real dumb – I mean, who prioritizes morality over fashion?!?!?!

“No! Not at all, that would be the stupidest thing if it affected my fashion choice,” Saldana told E! News exclusively at the 2015 GLAAD Media Awards when asked if she will boycott the famous brand. “People are allowed to their own opinion, however, I wouldn’t have chosen to be so public about something that’s such a personal thing.”

She added, “Obviously it caused some sensitivity, but then again if you continue to follow the news, you see they all kinda hugged it out, so why are we making a big deal about it?”

Uh… “They all kinda hugged it out?” Is that code for “Elton John said shit and then was carrying that D&G bag the next day?” because no one is over it, girl, and Elton was a hot mess for doing that, and celebrities are still boycotting the brand. How dumb is she?

Zoe Saldana gives birth to hipster twins

Zoe Saldana had a big 2014. She got married (that might’ve happened in 2013 but let’s go with it) to Italian art dude Marco Perego and in July, announced that she was pregnant with her first child. That first child turned out to be children, plural, because she was actually expecting twins. She gave birth back in November, but her spokesperson only confirmed the news yesterday to US Weekly.

“Actress Zoe Saldana and her husband, artist Marco Perego, have welcomed twin boys, Cy Aridio and Bowie Ezio Perego-Saldana. They were born Thursday, November 27th in Los Angeles. Mother and sons are happy and healthy. Zoe and Marco are so grateful to all of the fans for their incredible support and beautiful wishes. The family is also appreciative of the respect of their privacy during this exciting time. Thank you!”

I mean… Cy and Bowie? Could your kids be bigger hipsters already?

Anyhow, Zoe also shared the news, in so many words, on her Twitter page yesterday:

Good to hear they’re happy, healthy babies. Congrats to Zoe and Marco!

Zoe Saldana: Awesome or Obnoxious?

zoe saldana naked

I’m so torn on Zoe Saldana, you guys. I feel like I really should like her – she’s talented, she’s beautiful, she’s confident and intelligent… but she’s so fucking obnoxious, too. I feel like every single interview I read/see with her, she’s going on and on about how much confidence she has, and how strong she is, and how she’s got it so figured out and is the pinnacle of feminism and strength. And look, confidence is great – more women should feel good about themselves and strong, competent, etc. But at a certain point is just gets braggy and eyeroll-worthy, and I feel like that’s what’s happening here. Also, she’s another one I’m sick of seeing naked. EVERY SINGLE PHOTOSHOOT.

Here’s what she told Women’s Health UK about her thoughts on her body:

“This past year I’ve had to start letting go,” Saldana said.

“My body dictated it as if saying, ‘Slow the f**k down!’. And I struggle with that. I love to be an athlete.”

She continued: “I’ve learnt to listen to myself, so whenever I don’t feel like doing anything that starts with ‘I should’ then I don’t.

“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’.”

“I’m exactly where I want to be. I do feel beautiful in a way that even when I was working out a whole lot, I sometimes didn’t.

“Because there have been times that I was really slender and I didn’t like that I sometimes looked a little too muscular and flat chested – you’ll never be completely happy, so at the end of the day it’s like ‘F**k it. Just be happy, regardless’.”

Well, what’s she’s saying is true enough: you should be happy with yourself regardless. Even someone with the perfect looks/body – which, by societal standards, is Zoe – is going to find fault in themselves because that’s just life, especially for women. But some humility wouldn’t hurt – even when she’s being self-deprecating, it doesn’t feel genuine at all. Is this just me?

Zoe Saldana unleases some relationship wisdom on us all

zoe saldana

Zoe Saldana got married to now-husband Marco Perego last December, and while she may be happy in her current relationship, it took a while for her to get to that point. Before that, she was in several shitty relationships and she’s learned a lot of things she wants us all to know.

From Marie Claire:

On her relationship with husband Marco Perego: “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.”

On the biggest thing she’s learned about relationships: “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.”

On disrespect: “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.”

Well, that’s that, I suppose? I don’t know many people who stay friends with their exes after the relationship ends, regardless of respect or otherwise. I know it’s possible and it does happen, but I wouldn’t say that’s the norm.

How many of you are still friends with your exes?

Celebrities really looked their best at Cannes

Well, the Cannes Film Festival is over for another year, but still it lives on… particularly in the form of portraits taken by The Hollywood Reporter. Some of the biggest and best actors including Salma Hayek, Jane Fonda, Mark Ruffalo and more posed for the publication, and now you can see their shots, some of which are better than others.

Side note: when did Rosario Dawson do the half-head shave thing? I think I like it!
