Star Trek’s Zoe Saldana says she could “end up with a woman raising my children”


Actress Zoe Saldana said during a recent photo shoot and interview with “Allure” magazine that she could “end up with a woman raising my children…that’s how androgynous I am!”

Saldana, whose recent roles include Nyota Uhura in “Star Trek Into Darkness,” is at the moment happily single after having dated other actors, including a twelve-year relationship with Keith Britton.

Her opinion on the matter is “been there, done that, got the T-shirt.”

Just as her small frame (she recently came under fire for revealing her weight, 115 pounds) belies a fierce spirit, she says that in spite of her outwardly feminine appearance, she considers herself “androgynous.” Asked if that meant she is open to the possibility of being part of a two-mom family, she said, “Yes, I was raised that open.”

When asked if she has ever been in a relationship with another woman, however, she considered her answer before responding.

“If you choose to [publish that question], just put three dots as my response. That’s it,” she said.

As a black Latina, Saldana has faced her share of adversity; regarding the criticism about her casting as the famous jazz singer Nina Simone, who was much darker and curvier, Saldana said, “It doesn’t matter how much backlash I will get for it. I will honor and respect my black community because that’s who I am.”

She added, “It’s OK to say, ‘This is what I want’—and go after it. And if it doesn’t happen, it’s OK. Be a reasonable person with yourself.”
