BBC America has been running the new Star Trek films lately, and while catching Star trek: Into Darkness, I re-noticed the delicious Zoe Saldana. The services have begun.

Zoë Yadira Saldaña Nazario (June 19, 1978) is an American actress. Following her performances with the theater group Faces, Saldana made her screen debut in a 1999 episode of Law & Order. Her film career began a year later with Center Stage (2000), where she played a struggling ballet dancer.

Saldana became known for her work in science fiction films, beginning in 2009 with her first of multiple appearances as Nyota Uhura in the Star Trek film series and her first appearance as Neytiri in the Avatar film series. She has also played Gamora in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, beginning with Guardians of the Galaxy (2014).

Celebrities Reap What They Zoe

zoe-saldana-columbianaCommon sense is rather uncommon in Hollywood, so when a celebrity stands up for reason and rationality, I take notice. Zoe Saldana did just that this week with her brutally honest autopsy of the 2016 presidential election.

Sci-fi queen Zoe Saldana has spoken out against the famously liberal acting community of Hollywood for ‘bullying’ Donald Trump. The 38-year-old said that Hollywood grew ‘cocky and arrogant’ and became ‘bullies’ while voicing their distaste for Trump during the election.

She said: ‘We got cocky and became arrogant and we also became bullies.’ Saldana explained that by doing so, celebrities created empathy for the billionaire.

The Guardians of the Galaxy star said: ‘We were trying to single out a man for all these things he was doing wrong… and that created empathy in a big group of people in America that felt bad for him and that are believing in his promises.’

Yes, Saldana’s statements are chock full of backhanded compliments, but if nothing else, she realizes the damage done by celebrities this election. Most people couldn’t care less about what celebrities think; we simply want them to shut up and act/sing/dance. Full stop.
