If this arrived in our mail box, we’d assume it was a catalogue at first glance.
“Guardians of the Galaxy” actress Zoe Saldana covers the August 2014 issue of Marie Claire magazine in Levi’s photographed by Boe Marion.
That’s just … not a great picture. Her smile looks incredibly forced and stiff. The outfit does absolutely nothing for her. There’s nothing wrong with casual denim on a fashion mag cover, but she’s not the gal who can rock it. She’s much better in looks with an edge. And the background here is generic. It almost looks like a fake backdrop.
On the biggest thing she’s learned about relationships: “Not to settle. If you’re not happy with a person, leave. And wait until you find that one person who makes you feel good about yourself every single day and is not expecting you to change, but to grow.”
On dream roles: “I would love to play Nefertiti or Cleopatra or the Queen of Sheba. We preserve more male history than we do female. We have to preserve it. No more complaining. We have to do it.”
On growing up in Dominican Republic: “I had many female bullies growing up who wanted us to be submissive and to follow and to kiss ass, and that’s the last thing any Saldana will ever do, honestly.”
We love this next pic, though:
It’s a shame you don’t see pictures like that on fashion mag covers. It’s melodramatic, but it tells a real story. It’s too busy for all that cover copy about CRAZY GOOD HAIR, though.
That dress is perfect for her. She’s a Prada lady; not a jeans-on-the-beach one.
