MAGAZINE FAB: Zoe Saldana Covers The May 2011 Issue Of "PRESTIGE" Magazine

YBF chic Zoe Saldana dons some beautiful haute couture gowns in the May 2011 issue of PRESTIGE Magazine's Hong Kong edition. In the mag, she also talks about her upcoming movie Colombiana.  See the pics and read highlights inside....

 

For the May 2011 cover of PRESTIGE Magazine's Hong Kong Edition, Zoe Saldana, who is engaged to her longtime beau Keith Britton, wore Elie Saab Haute Couture and spoke to the mag about her latest movie.  Elsewhere in the pictorial, the actress wore looks from Burberry Prorsum, Alberta Ferretti, Miu Miu, Escada, Stephen Webster, Versace and Glynneth Barren. 

The PRESTIGE Magazine photoshoot took place at Montage Beverly Hills and the Avatar actress talked about her upcoming film Colombiana, where she plays an assassin out to avenge the murder of her parents. 

.
On why she decided to take lead role in new movie Colombiana:

 The opportunity to work with [producer/screenwriter] Luc Besson, another filmmaker I completely respect, and who’s known for writing great roles for women. And I was excited about working with an international cast and crew. And even though it’s a typical story of revenge, it’s a story told through the eyes of a woman who was hurt when she was a little girl and who grows up wanting justice for what was done to her. I felt touched by that.

On filming in Paris:

 If I could do a movie in Paris every year, I’d be the happiest camper. It’s such a beautiful city, especially in the summer.

On what she looks for in a movie role:

In the past I’ve played supporting roles, the love interest, the chick in the flick. I’m not degrading that. But it just doesn’t fulfill me as much as when I get to play someone who represents me as entirely as can be.

On taking on directing roles:

I’m working with my sister directing episodes for a pilot with Vin Diesel called The Ropes, about the lives of bouncers. We’re so psyched. I had the most amazing first day of shooting. I was on the set for 12 hours, went to bed at two am, was up again at 7.30, my energy and brain completely alert. I can’t wait to get back on set. After one day on set, I’m feeling the itch. I’m also directing a video short for Glamour magazine. And I’m in talks to possibly direct a film in Montreal, but I don’t want to say too much about that until it actually happens. Anything can change in this business.

I love the floral dress and the blue one; overall, these are some great shots and she's pretty, IMO. I'm not really a fan of the red dress. I think that both the color and the cut are a bit harsh, particularly considering how soft the other shots are.

It'll now be interesting to see if black men will "knuckle under" to the 'brow-beating pressure,' and support Zoe Saldana; after all, it was SHE who said "white men are THE most beautiful" (a sentiment shared (AND REPEATED) by 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland, and one, then "acted-upon" by that ever-simping Paula Patton). I'm sure ("Girl Power" withstanding) the male demographic was key for 'La Femme Nikita' (not to mention that other Luc Besson classic 'The Professional').

I love Zoe. She represents Blacks and Hispanics very well. I'm glad to see she's getting shine without having to fit this canon of what a Hispanic should look like. Plus, I've watched her over the years with my first time seeing her being Center Stage. She has steadily improved, including that New Yorican accent. She looks like she works very hard.

And I say this, given Gabriele now 'catching all hell' over her coming to her man's defense (Wade and the Miami Heat being "Hollywood")..!! X,Y,"and Z"

So as much as I knew I

So as much as I knew I shouldn't do it, I went ahead and followed the link u posted. You really should invest in one of those 'baby can read' videos from the infomercials. Kelly Rowland was specifically talking about the male leads from the Pirates of the Caribbean films and said she preferred Orlando Bloom to Johnny Depp. No mention of black, white or anything else! Also this is a blog for opinions so feel free to state yours. But don't come on here always talking out that little hole in your behind like you have some 'inside knowledge' the rest of us aren't privy to. You're speculating just like us. No worse, you're using sites like this to purposefully spread half-truths and lies about celebrities you don't like in hopes of sparking a rumor. And your end game is what? Do you somehow believe you're taking money out of their pockets with every lie u get people to read? So pathetic.

@Twilightey - "I think

@Twilightey - "I think Orlando Bloom is the most beautiful man in the world!" (<--AND who she's then keeping company with. Actions do speak louder than words!) "Inside Info" I never, nor will EVER claim to posses! (I don't know how many times I've said that I have NO "Industry Insider friends," NOR-myself work "in the Industry!" But what I DO HAVE are those very words of others that I may then retell at a later time! The aforementioned is but ONE of the links I have on/regarding 30-something Kelly Rowland. Her recently going on "The Breakfast Club" and THEN backpedaling is/was PURE AND UTTER BULLSHIT..!! (rest assured, I'll be here to uncover her fraud!) For example.. She had bought Miami, Fla property - AT THE TOP OF THE MARKET - and then couldn't pay for, nor could sell it - (she got in MUCH too late...) the market had turned. That was THEN that she was conveniently seen with Richard Branson. I guess that was to somehow offer a distraction, of sorts. She was after-THEN, right here on YBF, seen with another 'White Knight In Shining Armor' when she had that $90k lean on her property. (I guess those rumors 'bout her and Roy Williams were true - she's broke, and/or she's financially irresponsible. That's why she's NOT Mrs. Williams) Then there was that 'flare up' she had on a flight (I think coming from, or was it going to Australia) and she almost got herself kicked off the flight! And that's only a few I could remember - from memory. I have more my bots had pulled from the 'net on another server, but the power supply is fried, and I have no SCSI adapters to plug those older HDs into. But, rest assured, I have more. "More" where-when I could quote her; where I could furnish proper links! Now, Zoe Saladana said something similar! I'll have to find the direct quote. But I bet you didn't know that her costars from her Star Trek movie ran a train on the "ethereal and procedural" Ms. Saldana! I think you should know that I'm now looking to get into contact/linking-up with, and then will organize Ciara's fans. There's over 1-Million of 'em on Twitter, to NOW call/write/text/twitter/facebook post requests for her music. You see, if WE can do this now, we can erase 'Motivation' from radio station rotation. But to do this NOW is key - "time is of the essence..!!" If you didn't know, the clock is ticking on 30-something-year-old X-Beyonce Back-up Singer Kelly Rowland. ; - 9 (wink) X,Y,"and Z"

@Twilightey re: 9:14 am

@Twilightey re: 9:14 am -- You've failed to mention, in your "embattled mucus congestion," *cough*Paula Patton*cough*. For if there was EVER an example of "marginal-talented-mixed-down-simping_ambiguity" we'd THEN be hard-pressed to find a more perfect example! (we're distracted from her "garbled script/character resolution," by then being our forced - if not expected - bedazzlement with her multi-racial heritage; "STUPID NIGGAS") And, since you've mentioned Gabriele Union - if it were SHE who could be now seen as the female lead in 'Jumping The Broom' it'd have more than doubled its current (overinflated?) first week(and current) Box-Office take! Just the image of Dwade/Bron/Bosh on ANY Red Carpet Premier would create such a buzz that - that '$20-Million first-week-success threshold' would have been a certainty!
