HOT: Zoe Saldana

06 Sep 2013 | By Tim Mworia

“Basically, there’s not enough sex in movies, that’s it. I’m trying to say it, people. I miss sex in movies because sex is natural, guns are not.”

You know her from Avatar and as the pirate girl who hilariously slaps Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Zoë Yadira Saldaña Nazario is an American actor of Dominican and Puerto Rican descent. The Hollywood siren was famously snubbed by the Oscars for her groundbreaking role as Neytiri which was dismissed as being closer to animation than acting.

As good an actor as she is, controversy always seems to follow her. Currently there’s wide furore over her casting as Nina Simone in the late singer’s upcoming biographical film.

Zoe was first noticed in Law & Order and gained mileage in 2000’s teen drama film Center Stage before getting the role of Anamaria in Pirates. Her first major role was alongside Ashton Kutcher in Guess Who. This led to the much coveted job of playing a young Lt. Nyota Uhura in J. J. Abrams reboot of Star Trek.

Because of performance fears, she admittedly nearly turned down the role of Uhura halfway through the first Star Trek project when James Cameron came knocking with Avatar. She’s since played big parts in the three movies (Star Trek, Avatar, Star Trek Into Darkness) which have grossed a combined $2 billion. This makes her Hollywood’s best actress…number-wise at least.

Spotted In: Avatar, Star Trek Series, Death at a Funeral, Takers, After Sex, Colombiana, Machete Kills, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
