All eyes on Zoe
Avatar star Zoe Saldana loves working on movies where she is the only female cast member because it makes her feel “sexy” working among men.Updated: May 11, 2010 03:04 IST
The 31-year-old actress, who stars in the action movie Losers with Jason Patric, Chris Evans and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, insisted that she never feels she is missing out by having no female company on set with her as she loves action movies so much, reported The Independent online.
“I love working with boys, and I probably do that more than most actresses. I got to do it on Star Trek, Pirates of the Caribbean and now The Losers. It just makes me feel sexy, I guess,” said Saldana.
“And these kinds of films — sci-fi and action — with all male crews are just the kind of films I want to make. I love girls, don’t get me wrong. But, as a woman, to get to play rough characters gives me a lot of freedom and versatility. I like holding the gun and participating in saving the day because I think it’s really sexy,” she added.
However, Saldana admitted being the only woman in the cast has its drawbacks.“I almost feel like you have twice as much work to do because you don’t want to be singled out... so I toughed it out. I wanted to impress the guys,” she said.
