Actress Zoe Saldana has hit back at reports that she suffered a mental breakdown after filming Avatar.
A magazine had quoted the 33-year-old star saying that the promotion and success of the sci-fi epic had taken toll on her physically and emotionally, so much, that she had burst into tears in a Paris hotel and couldn't control her sobbing, reports contactmusic.com.
But the actress has denied the reports saying the statement was misconstrued.
"It was definitely misconstrued, the statement that I made... It was such a beautiful roller-coaster and we had no idea we were gonna break records on so many levels and that this movie... was gonna touch so many hearts from all over the world," she said.
"We started the whole world tour and you're expelling so much energy, so that by the time the awards season was over... my body just needed to relax. It was kind of like shutting down. It was just a beautiful journey that exhausted me," she added.
