Zoe Saldana is on the hot promo trail for her upcoming revenge-action thriller ‘Colombiana’. Zoe’s most recent cover is Ebony magazine’s 2011 September issue. Read a quick excerpt from the interview below:
“When I go after a part, [people] better watch their backs,” she says. “Not because I’m going to crush everybody, but because I’m going to give the best that I can because I strive for excellence. When you don’t get a part, it is for a reason, and these pieces will fall into place soon. … We have a Black president right now, so why the f— would I sit down and talk about how hard it is for Black women in Hollywood when there’s a Black president in my country?”
It’s hard to truly make the connection from this quote – maybe there are other pieces missing – giving Zoe the benefit of the doubt here – otherwise the latter part of her statement makes very little sense. Share your thoughts….
In other Zoe news, the actress has reportedly launched a fashion website with fiance Keith Britton, www.MyFDB.com.
“It’s really for anyone who loves fashion magazines, luxury brands, celebrities, models,” said Saldana. “You can browse them all [at] MyFDB.COM.”
“Before MyFDB, there wasn’t any website giving fashion professionals’ credit where credit is due for their work,” she said. “We were inspired to level the playing field for them while organizing the industry by fashion credits. Soon we will be launching MyFDB Vintage that will cover the iconic and timeless magazine covers and ad campaigns from decades past.”
Now that sounds yummy for true fashion lovers! Will you watch Zoe Saldana in Colombiana opening August 26th?
