CovHER Star: Zoe Saldana Shape Magazine
The Zoe Saldana Shape magazine cover is absolutely gorgeous. The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 star graced the cover of Shape magazine’s “Love Your Shape” June 2017 issue.
Y’all know I love me some Zoe Saldana. From her impeccable acting skills to her ability to have a third child and us not know a thing. She’s known for keeping us all guessing and we never know what’s next until she tells us.
Although she’s been able to maintain her very slender frame, Zoe said she doesn’t do or believe in diets or cheat days. Inside her Shape magazine issue, she also dishes on keeping spice in her life and perfection.
Peep excerpts and more pics below:
On why she doesn’t believe in diets:
“I don’t believe in cheat days because I don’t believe in diets. I try not to deprive my body of anything, because the moment I have just salads and protein for a few days, I crave carbs. But when I eat everything in balance, I think less about food and more about everything else. It’s about eating to live, not living to eat.”
On needing spice in your life:
“My husband [Marco Perego] and I love to cook. I’m going through a phase where I’m making a lot of beans and quinoa. And I love ceviche and stews. But my favorite type of food is Asian. No matter how north or south in the Pacific, I love the spices, the vegetables, and the ways they cook them. Lately my husband and I have been learning to cook with Asian spices, like turmeric, and ginger, and we’re having a blast.”
“If we could design ourselves, we’d all be perfect. But we can’t, so why be unhappy about it? I’ve never wanted different hair or my body any other shape. And I’ve never thought of a person as ugly unless they opened their mouth and their heart was full of venom.”
