Smartasses Magazine Top 100 - Female EmpowermentZoe Saldana Bio – Smartasses Magazine Zoe Yadira Zaldana Nazario (born June 19, 1978) is an American actress and dancer. Saldana was born in Passaic, New Jersey, to Aridio Zaldana, a Dominican, and Asalia Nazario, a Puerto Rican. She also has Haitian and Lebanese ancestry. Saldana also has two sisters, Cisely and Mariel Saldana, and one half-brother, Nipo Saldana. The majority of her early childhood she spent growing up in Jackson Heights, Queens, New York, and her native languages are both English and Spanish. At age ten, Saldana moved with her family to the Dominican Republic, where they lived for the next seven years. She married Italian artist Marco Perego in June 2013 in London, and the couple has twin sons, Bowie Ezio Perego-Saldana and Cy Aridio Perego-Saldana, born in November 2014.

It was in the Dominican Republic where Saldana discovered her love of dance, and she soon enrolled in the ECOS Espacio de Danza Academy. In 1995, after returning to New York City her sophomore year in high school, she began performing with the FACES theater group in Brooklyn and the New York Youth Theater. Her appearance in a production of Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat led to a talent agency recruiting her, where her previous dance training and acting experience helped her to land her first film role, playing Eva Rodriguez, the talented and headstrong ballet student, in the 2000 film Center Stage. Saldana left school after the film, subsequently appearing in the 2002 Britney Spears film Crossroads. Both of her breakthrough roles came in 2009, playing Nyota Uhura in Star Trek, and opposite Michelle Rodriguez as Neytiri in James Cameron’s Avatar. Saldana continued her successful career with films such as 2011’s Colombiana and the 2014 film Guardians of the Galaxy. She also reprised her role as Uhura in the subsequent Star Trek sequels, Star Trek: Into Darkness and Star Trek Beyond. Likewise, Saldana also reprised her earlier roles in the sequels for Avatar and Guardians of the Galaxy. In May 2014, Saldana starred in Rosemary’s Baby, a television miniseries adaptation of Ira Levin’s best-selling horror novel, which she co-produced. She also sang with Diego Luna on the song No Matter Where You Are for the soundtrack of 2014’s The Book of Life.

To prepare for her role as Nyota Uhura in Star Trek, Saldana met with Nichelle Nichols, who played the same character on the original television series. She also did an intense, nonstop six-month preparation for Avatar, including martial arts, archery and horseback riding. In 2014, Saldana was recognized by Elle magazine during The Women in Hollywood Awards, honoring women for their outstanding achievements in film, spanning all aspects of the motion picture industry, including acting, directing, and producing. Saldana is a celebrity supporter of FINCA International, a microfinance organization. In May 2007, Saldana was chosen as one of People magazine’s annual 100 Most Beautiful People in the World. Though she has studied various forms of dance, Saldana lists ballet as her primary passion.

Why we think she’s hot:

Way back in 2003, Zoe Saldana had a tiny little role in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, and was all set to have a major role in the ensuing sequels. That never happened. We can’t help but wonder, with Zoe now being one of the most scorching stars on the planet, if the Pirate people regret it. Though Saldana’s Caribbean role may have been a forgettable one, the Star Trek scene where she changes her skirt, while a waylaid Chris Pine awaits from under the bed… is one that will be burned in our synapses for a lifetime. Curiously enough, though Zoe is a self-proclaimed Trekker, she actually never saw the original Star Trek series until after she was cast for the part. No matter, this half Dominican, half Puerto Rican hunkette claims that her perfect man would also be a dual-blooded- half bad boy and half geek. Our guess is that that’s an equation which works well for most Trekkers… and most Smartassaholics as well.
