Guardians of the Galaxy actress and mom-to-be Zoe Saldana graced the cover of Elle magazine’s November 2014 issue.
Zoe is featured on one of the eight separate covers for Elle Magazine’s Women In Hollywood Issue where she dished on playing the role of Nina Simone in her biopic and whether she knew she would make it in the industry.
On playing the role of Nina Simone:
I actually encouraged Cynthia to cast someone else. But she came to me and said that everybody was afraid, and I thought, ‘Isht, then how can we complain that there aren’t enough films about African-American iconic figures?’
On if she knew she would make it in Hollywood:
That’s how those seven years my sisters and I spent on a bohemian island played very well. We’re not American in terms of feeding into that machine that you have to be somebody. We were somebody the moment we were born.
