Zoe Saldana and her husband, Italian artist Marco Perego are having twins! Saldana has stated in the past she had always wanted a large family and she has gottten her wish! The 36 year-old Guardians of the Galaxy star is still looking as diva as ever as she stepped out in New York this week. Wearing curve hugging dresses that showed off her growing baby bump, you would never know she was just 3 months pregnant. She's in amazing shape and she contributes this to her dedication to working hard and her ballerina past. Saldana has been quite busy promoting her new film which opens in select theaters tonight and nationwide August 1st. She appeared on Good Morning America and David Letterman this week where she also revealed she has 10 tattoos! Saldana covers them pretty well but we can see one in a spread the actress did for Women's Health Magazine before her pregnancy.

In her new film, Saldana plays Gamora, an assassin who is part of a team of unlikely heroes that have been assigned to save the universe. Gamora is known as the most dangerous woman in the galaxy. She is the last of her green alien race and was raised an orphan. This role was different and at first, Saldana hesitated agreeing to the part stating “I was like, I don’t really want to do another science-fiction movie because people love to typecast me — or anybody — and they’ll just say, oh, I’m just a sci-fi person. At the same time, it was a great filmmaker, a great studio, a great cast of underdogs but brilliant actors. I thought I would be foolish to pass on this opportunity out of fears of what others may think. It’s just not who I am.” Saldana also revealed that she had to use some of her inner masculine qualities to make this character believable. Saldana considers herself a tomboy but also realizes she is very feminine (ya think?). The actress stated she had to de-train her femininity in order to get in to character for Gamora. With a good amount of positive feedback from early reviews on the film, we're sure Saldana nailed the part. The sequel to this highly anticipated Marvel film is set to open July 28, 2017.
