Zoe has a vibrant career with big hits, and along with her acting chops, her professionalism has also played a big part in her career. Her performance in the comedy film Death at Funeral has been widely appreciated.
However, did you know while shooting the film, Zoe Saldana faced a rather uncomfortable situation for her co-star and former X-Men star, James Marsden? Yes, that’s right. As stated in the report, Parade, James’ n*kedness left Zoe Saldana in an awkward position. Talking about the same, in a throwback interview, Zoe Saldana shared, “The funniest thing that Jimmy did wasn’t so funny. He’s supposed to be n*ked on the rooftop and I open the window and go, ‘What are you doing, come back inside?’ He didn’t give me any warning that he had taken off his pants. So I just opened the window and saw a lot more of him than I was expecting, and I’m just trying not to look below his eyes.”
Going further in the conversation, Zoe Saldana revealed how she threatened to punch him for not warning his n*kedness. She said, “Afterwards, I yelled at him, ‘Warn me if you ever do that again or I’m going to punch you.’ And he’s like, ‘But you were such a lady. You never looked down.'”
Zoe had faced something similar for herself as well while filming The Losers, and the actress didn’t shy away from voicing her concerns and having a fight Jeffrey Dean Morgan. She said, “The way that scene was written in the original script, my character was n*ked. I literally told the director, ‘If I am going to do this scene, there is no way I’m going to be n*de because it just isn’t necessary or even believable. So there was a negotiation and I ended up in my bra and panties. I don’t mind using my physical assets as a weapon, but there’s a limit.”
Well, go, Gamora! Zoe Saldana is undoubtedly the right choice to play that role, as she is feisty and honest as her real self as well.
