Zoe Saldana ENGAGED+Alicia Keys Avoids "Homewrecker" Questions
Zoe Saldana's had the most winningest year ever. After being nominated for every award on the planet, and winning several of them, she just got herself engaged. Her long time boyfriend of 10 years, Keith Britton, popped the question. But Zoe's staying tight-lipped about the whole scenario.
Read on for more and about Alicia Keys' recent interview...
Us Weekly reports that the Avatar star is about to tie the knot. Even though we thought she was already engaged it's been so long:
The actress, 32, "is thrilled" to tie the knot with boyfriend of 10 years, Keith Britton, a source tells Us. "They’ve been together forever. They’re a great couple."
But a low-key one!
Saldana has mostly kept quiet about her relationship with the 33-year-old actor and CEO of My Fashion Database.
"She doesn’t even introduce him as her fiancé," adds another insider. "She will just say, 'This is Keith.' She likes to keep her personal life to herself and wants people to focus on her as an actress."
The second source tells Us that Saldana isn't stressing about the wedding, either: "She hasn’t stopped working to plan anything."
And Alicia Keys did an interview recently with Fabulous Magazine (a spinoff of the UK tabloid News of the World). And when asked about being a homewrecker, she quoted Oprah and sealed her lips:
Alicia Keys on loving Swizz: “Oh yes,” she says dreamily. “I am very much in love. Right now love is my main inspiration. Love is the one thing we all want in our lives and I am completely surrounded by it. Love fills you up in a way nothing else can and it’s the most amazing, amazing thing.”
On motherhood: She’s even considering adopting a child from Africa in the future. “I’m so looking forward to being a mum,” she says. “My mum was the best mum to me. She was my best friend as well as my mum. And I want to be the same to my child.”
Fabulous Mag on the homewrecking: “Both Alicia and Swizz have strongly denied that they were together while he was married. In fact, despite regularly being seen at the same events and holidaying together in Hawaii in January, they only admitted they were a couple in May, when they were photographed hand-in-hand following Alicia’s sell-out gig at London’s O2 arena. Their public outing came just weeks after Swizz’s divorce was formalised. Two days later, headlines announced they were planning to marry and expecting a baby. Not exactly music to Mashonda’s ears.”
But Alicia won’t be drawn into discussing her fiancé’s ex. She shakes her head: “Oprah Winfrey is the wisest woman I know. She’s like my big, clever, older sister. A while ago she gave me one piece of advice which was to never get drawn into talking about that sort of thing. All I know is that right now my life is really, really good.”
We all know she's never going to answer the question fully. But it's still interesting to hear her reactions when asked....
