Zoe Saldana And Her Sisters In "W" Magazine + Paula Patton COVERS "JEZEBEL" Magazine

Zoe Saldana is featured in this month's "W" Magazine with her sisters Mariel and Cisley in an article called "Soul Sisters" See the gorgeous pic inside and also see Paula Patton on the cover of "JEZEBEL" Magazine........

Zoe Saldana is joined by her beautiful sisters Mariel and Cisley in a "W" article called Soul Sisters about the sisterly bonds between the women. In the article that accompanies the feature the sister discuss how close they are and how they have to live near each other......

“Because we’ve had to survive so many things, there’s this special bond that connects us,” says actress Zoë Saldana (center), 33 of her sisters Cisely (left), 32, a producer, and Mariel (right), 34, a nurse.

We were raised in Queens, New York, until my father passed away when I was 9. Our mom, being a single parent, didn’t want us to grow up in a dangerous place, so she moved us to the Dominican Republic, where we stayed with my grandparents. Our mom would live with us there for one year and then spend one year in New York so she could make money to send back home for us. It’s inconceivable for us to be separated. We have to be around each other 24/7.”

And she’s not speaking metaphorically: When Zoë moved to L.A. from New York five years ago to pursue her film career (Avatar, Star Trek), her sisters quickly followed her. These days, they live within nine miles of each other. “I’ll text my mom once a day,” says Zoë. “But my sisters? Every 30 minutes we’re on BlackBerry Messenger.”

Nice pic of the ladies....

 

Also on magazine racks.......

 

Paula Patton covers "JEZEBEL" Magazine where she dishes on her role in the upcoming fourth Mission Impossible movie.

 

On seeing her current movie Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, for the first time:

“I just got to see the movie finally, a week ago, and I was blown away.  It is very gritty and, somehow, the most impossible seems possible in the coolest way.”

On getting the coveted role opposite Tom Cruise:

“The truth is that I really didn’t think that I was going to get it. I remember them calling me and asking me to come in and read for the director, and I was like, ‘Come on, guys, don’t waste my time!’”

On dreams of being an actress:

I’ve always wanted to be an actress, since I was a little girl; I went to a performing arts high school, but then I got sidetracked and decided that maybe I wanted to be a filmmaker.”

Loves the pics.

EXTRAS:

 

Sadly, the world lost a VERY funny man earlier today when comedian Patrice O'Neal, 41, passed away.  He was known as the host of Web Junk 2.0, stand-up cmedy, and several tv sitcoms.  Friends are saying that Patrice died as a result of complications stemming from a stroke he suffered back in October.  He will be missed.

I really love the picture of

I really love the picture of Zoe and her sisters. It really reminds me of the close relationship between my sisters and myself. I am proud to say after my parents divorced I was raised by a stronge loving mother like Zoe and her family and our bond is just like her family. This comes from my mom teaching us how important families are to one another. Secondly, to all the black females that have such low self worth and esteem about themselves to always mention people w/ lighter skin or straighter hair. THIS IS FOR YOU. GET OVER IT AND FIND HELP FOR YOUR HATE AND JEALOUSY SYNDROME. I have a close friend that is Biracial and not once do I feel any jealousy for her because her skin is lighter and her hair straighter and hangs past her bottom. SHE BLEEDS JUST LIKE I DO SHE'S BEEN IN A BAD RELATIONSHIP OR TWO JUST LIKE I HAVE, SHE'S EXPERIENCED HURT PAIN AND OTHER TRIALS OF LIFE UP'S AND DOWN'S JUST LIKE I HAVE. My point is she is no different than me. NO BETTER OR WORSE. THAT'S BECAUSE I WAS TAUGHT TO LOVE MY SELF AND LOVE WHAT I SEE EACH AND EVERY DAY WHEN I LOOK IN THE MIRROR! I hate to say it but many of you were raised by other people who had low self worth and esteem and this is unfortunately passed on through the generations. The other percent of you have allowed MEN TO DO THIS TO YOU. MANY OF YOU HAVE HAD MEN WHO HAVE CHOOSEN A PERSON WHO LOOKS LIKE PAULA OR ZOE OVER YOU IN THE PAST. ONLY LEAVING A STAIN OF BITTERNESS IN YOUR HEARTS FOR ALL THE ZOE'S AND PAULA'S OF THE WORLD TO ALWAYS SHOW HATE A RESENTMENT FOR. THIS IS MY PLEA TO YOU. LET IT GO AND NEVER ALLOW WHAT SOME MEN FIND AS THEIR OBJECT OF BEAUTY DETERMINE YOUR SELF WORTH! Last but not least we already know that their is self hate and racism in a all cultures. From the hispanics to the east indians,middle east and all people who have light and dark skin tones within their race. This I am afraid will always be. Many of the Europeans of this world have really done a number on all races and cultures. Making everyone feel the closer to white we are the better we are. TIME TO WAKE UP AND STOP LETTING THE POWERS THAT BE KEEP US HATING AND FIGHTING ONE ANOTHER. TO ALL THE SELF HATING HISPANICS COMING ON THIS SITE. WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT ZOE SALDANA IS THE HOTTEST BLACK/LATINA IN THE BUSS. RIGHT NOW SHE HAS NOT 1 BUT 2 SUCCESSFUL FRANCHISE MOVIES ON HER PLATE W/ AVATAR AND STAR TRACK BOTH HAD BIG BIG TICKET SALES. GO TO HER IMDB SHE HAS A LONG LIST OF MOVIES COMING OUT. SO YOU SELF HATING LATINOS KEEP WATCHING HER BLAZE A TRAIL LEAVING YOU SELF HATER'S BEHIND. ONE MORE THING TO THE PERSON THAT MENTIONED THAT SLUTTY SOFIA VARGARA SHE IS A NON-ACTING 40 SOMETHING YR WHORE. SOFIA IS A STEREOTYPE OF HOW THEY SEE LATINA WOMEN ON HER SHOW BEING A BAD ENGLISH SPEAKING OVERLY SEXUALLY ACTING (CHARO) OF THIS ERA PERPETUATING THE STEROTYPICAL BAD IMAGE OF LATIN WOMEN. SOFIA SLEPT W/ TYREESE AND MARK WAHLBERG AKA(MARKY MARK) WHILE FILMING THE MOVIE SHE MADE W/ THEM. THEY BOTH TALKED ABOUT HER IN AN INTERVIEW. SOFIA V IS THE CASTING COUCH NOT ONLY W/ DIRECTORS W/ ACTORS AND WHOM EVER WILL GIVE HER A ROLE! TOM CRUISE DUMPED THIS WHORE. SO THINK AGAIN LATIN LOSER'S. SOFIA WILL NEVER BE ON ZOE'S LEVEL SHE IS A CHEAP WORTHLESS WHORE! HOLLYWOOD WANTED ZOE'S LOOK OVER SOFIA'S GET OVER IT! ZOE SALDANA IS IN A POSTION THAT ANY WHITE,BLACK,LATINO, ASIAN OR ANY OTHER RACE WOULD GIVE THEIR RIGHT ARM TO BE IN RIGHT NOW. DON'T HATE ZOE FOR MAKING IT. THE JEWS OWN AND RUN HOLLYWOOD! I KNOW THIS SOUND OLD BUT HATE THE GAME NOT THE PLAYER'S. IN ZOE'S CASE THE WINNER'S!

You obviously are one of the

You obviously are one of the ones I was talking about w/ low self esteem. If you were so happy w/ yourself you would have never responded to my comments in the defensive way that you did. I did not say all black females just the ones who always seem to complain about lighter skinned women all the time. Come on enough already stop blaming other people for your poor self worth. You sound pathetic and really ignorant. You also sound like you need to go back to school and get a good education for yourself. Last but not least if you saw me you would know why I could never be a jealous of any of my friends light skin or dark that's because w/ my nice features beautiful hair and lovely skin tone I know that I am beautiful inside and out! I was taught self-worth my hoodrat friend. I feel bad that only 5% of black females have good mother's like myself that teach their children to love ourselves no matter what your skin tone they are. I pity you PrettyNic for not having a postive up bringing to know that people are people no matter what skin tone they are!

PrettyNic once again you have

PrettyNic once again you have proven my point. You are a low life hoodrat w/ no education. I can clearly see that from all your grammer mistakes. Bitch this and bitch that you are a dark skinned girl who hates herself and is so miserable about it that you felt the need to defend all dark skinned girls. How stupid and pathetic IS THAT? All dark skinned girls don't need your UGLY ASS to defend them and being a hooker does not count as having a GOOD job. This is exactly why I never had and never will have a Facebook account because of self hating UGLY girls like you. Pure monkey ass hater's. You obviously are young dumb and very immature to even ask to see pictures of me. WHO really ask people to show pic's of themselves? People like you UGLYNIC WHO ALWAYS HAS TO PROVE THAT SHE IS JUST AS PRETTY AS LIGHTER SKIN GIRLS OR US BROWN SKIN BEAUTIES! ONLY A HOODRAT PERSON USES THE LANGUAGE YOU USE. BEGGING TO SEE HOW GOOD I LOOK . WHO DOES THAT? I WILL NOT RESPOND TO ANY MORE OF YOUR HOOD RAT CONVERSATION. YOU ARE WORTHLESS W/ NO CLASS. PEOPLE LIKE ME HAVE ALWAYS GOT HATE FROM PEOPLE LIKE YOU. FIRST OF ALL I HAVE CLASS YOU CLEARLY DON'T. I'M PRETTY YOU CLEARLY HATE HOW YOU LOOK . YOU CAN'T EVEN SPELL. GIRL BYE! KEEP BELIEVING THE LIE ABOUT HOW CONFIDENT YOU ARE AND YOU LOVE BEING A DARK SKIN GIRL. YOU HATE YOURSELF! YOUR ANGER PROVES IT! I CAN ASSURE YOU I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FROM A UPPER CLASS ENVIRONMENT AND HAVE NEVER EVER STEPPED FOOT IN THE GHETTO BUT I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT YOU WERE BORN AND BREED THERE. SO KEEP ON BEING ANGRY. NOW I REALLY HAVE TO GET BACK TO STUDYING TO GET MY PHARMACY LICENSE THIS HAS BEEN A FUN LITTLE BREAK FOR ME. I TOLD YOU YOU CAN'T COMPETE W/ ME MY LITTLE HOOD RAT FRIEND DATRUTH IS JUST MY LITTLE ESCAPE FROM MY STUDIES. IF DATRUTH SOUNDS HOODRAT THAT'S OK BECAUSE THE TRUTH IS THAT I AM FAR FROM IT! TAKE CARE MY HOOD RAT FRIEND! MAYBE SOON I'LL SEE YOU SOON AT THE PHARMACY COUNTER GETTING MEDS FOR YOUR HOOD RAT SYNDROME !LOL!

I wish I had "sister bonds"

I wish I had "sister bonds" the way Zoe and her siblings do. My sisters are all half-sisters (only share the same father), we did grow up together on weekends and such and at family gatherings. And several of us live in the same city now, but rarely see each other or talk. Not at all close. It's probably because we all have different mothers (3 diff moms - poppa was a rolling stone). At any rate, fractured homes, single parent families and the like lead to siblings who don't know each other and are truly strangers. #Shame.

It's so sad because he said himself he knew his health wasn't the best. 2 of our black men in less than 2 weeks, just in their 40's! That should be a wake up call for us all!

(Meh..) Zoe Saldana and Paula

(Meh..) Zoe Saldana and Paula Patton.. The "Colombiana" and the "Broom Jumper".. Besides "good" hair and light skin, what does Zoe and Paula both have in common (besides "acting" their way onto Hollywood's casting couch)? Well, they're BOTH L-O-S-E-R-S: "Colombiana" lost money! Sorry Zoe, we're didn't THEN, nor now buy planted stories on boxoffice 'bout 'biana "making" money. A movie does NOT have its expected overseas premier receipts spike upwards, then inevitable decline as interest wanes and new movies are rolled-out; but then, by some "miracle from above" suddenly spike UPWARDS again. And in only ONE month, going from $24.3-Million (which took TWO months) to OVER $64.4-Million..?! Nice try, Zoe! You almost had me fooled then, you certainly won't now..!! "Jumping The Broom": Another 'piss-poor female lead acted' film! And here too, boxoffice was/is WRONG: $63.4 million made vs costs of $66.9 million - "BO" incorrectly has the Total Budget/Cost at $28-Million! Zoe and Paula..two light-skinned, "keratin-blessed" "assassins"! You want your well-written, 'well-seasoned cast' film to die a professional "two-behind-the-ear" death? Well, Zoe and Paula are your two "go-to" female leads..!! ..God bless the "United States Of Hollywood"..!! X,Y,"and Z" -- OUT..!!

Columbiana loss money b/c it

Columbiana loss money b/c it came out the weekend we had storms and forcasted hurricanes across the north east not b/c no one wanted to see it. The film pretty much lost a whole regions box office numbers. And as for Jumping the Broom (which she has done many other movies yet you choose this one) it is a RomCom which very rarely pulls huge box office numbers especially in the African american community. It wasn't marketed to ALL groups

@Anonymous re: 10:05 am, Nov

@Anonymous re: 10:05 am, Nov 30th -- "Columbiana loss money b/c it came out the weekend we had storms and forcasted hurricanes across the north east" <--WRONG..!!!! *buzzer sound* 1.)Go back and look at that opening weekend's projections for Colombiana. They were made BEFORE the storm had hit the N.E. . They weren't far-off from the actual opening-day returns. 2.)Today's films "turn profits" from OVERSEAS receipts, NOT domestic. Most times - AT BEST - the domestic returns only account for "break-even" money. Not "profits"!! Essentially, "Colombiana" was supposed to turn a profit from said overseas returns. This is why it was purchased by the overseas entities that it was. "And as for Jumping the Broom (which she has done many other movies yet you choose this one) it is a RomCom which very rarely pulls huge box office numbers especially in the African american community" 1.) If you'd go back and checked YBF's archives and read what I'd then wrote, you'd have THEN saw my rational for NOT using the likes of a Paula Patton. But let me summarize: What makes you think using an actress who brings her WHITE husband to the red carpet, then pictured "jumping the broom" with him will then appeal to any demo OUTSIDE of black women/mainstream..?? The Mainstream REFUSES to support anything that doesn't have include their image. Particularly films that feature black folks. There research papers that substantiate this well-known fact! ..Why didn't the film's producers use an actress like a Gabrielle Union..?? That'd have ensured DWayne, CBosh, and Lebron's presence on said 'red carpet' which would, by itself, guaranteed serious media-splash, and at the VERY least, the "curiosity" of an untapped demo: black men/sports fans. 2.) How can you have an actress who isn't "wholly" black, and more importantly, one who is married/with to a white man to be the "object of affection" of black men? White men, Asian men, Arab men - whatever men REFUSES to accept that. Why then expect any less from black men? Why then shout-down and berate them for only wanting to see their image upon the pop-culture landscape? ..I know why! It's because you, black women/the mainstream, have sought to emasculate black men. 25-years of Oprah Winfrey gave you a mandate! By "co-mingling" with white men, and the mainstream - you've become the "enemy within"! You do their bidding. X,Y,"and Z" -- "My word and my balls, I break them for no one" (T.Montana)

I really hope these posters

I really hope these posters claiming to be Hispanic aren't really this stupid. Otherwise, they have no right to call themselves Hispanic since they know NOTHING about their OWN CULTURE. Dominican Republic, Cuba, Puerto Rico, and many other Latin American countries were built on the backs of slaves. Be proud of your people. Be proud of their beautiful complexions, and noses and hair whether it's kinky, curly or straight. Stop hating on G-d's creations. I know you guys must know that it's wrong on so many levels. Aside from pure blasphemy, why insult someone for being who they are? I nor you can stop looking like the race we were born into, even with all the plastic surgery in the world. There is no reason to belittle anyone, even if you are insecure about your beauty. Trying to put others down doesn't make you look any better.

I notice that every time

I notice that every time there is something on this site about Zoe, someone under a "Latino-sounding" screen name always makes extremely negative and racist comments about her. Who knows if the person is actually Latino, but it's best to ignore them because they are clearly deranged.
BlackVesper's picture

I guess you didn't see the

I guess you didn't see the PBS documentary Blacks In Latin America. White Hispanics despise the brown and black ones which the black and brown ones have internalized so they hate themselves and worship white Hispanics who hate them. Self hating merry-go-round in the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Puerto Rico and many other Latin American countries. The closer you are to the ideal of white skin, straight hair and small noses the more acceptable you are in the Hispanic community. We hate ourselves more than anybody else and it it proven in the way white Hispanics look down on us. White Hispanics have the clout, money, power and options in life to be better assimilated into white culture but when you are brown and black you don't have that option. It is no fluke that white Hispanics are at the top in every Spanish speaking country while the black and browns are struggling at the bottom. In my own family of dark Hispanics they think that white is better. I have a white Hispanic friend whose family boycotted his wedding because he married a moreno. White Hispanics only want to marry white Hispanics to keep the color high. True facts.
