Zoe Saldana Talks About Her Wedding and Marriage
Fri 21-03-2014

Actress Zoe Saldana is finally opening up about her secret wedding to Marco Perego last year.

"I’m not a private person, but I am discreet, so getting married in secret felt right," the actress tells the new issue of Net-A-Porter's The Edit, which she covers.

Saldana also admits she "let herself go" after her nuptials, opting for big meals over long workouts.

"I’ve been an active person my whole life," she says.

"The past year has been the only time in my life that I haven’t been to the gym. I’ve been lazy instead of training for something and pushing myself ... not because I am trying to be skinny. I just like to know how much endurance I have. But this past year I’ve let myself go," she continues.

"I’ve been eating a lot of Chinese, pasta, rice, beans..."

As for why she decided to finally marry Italian artist Perego, Zoe Saldana says he brings out the best in her: "I’m fortunate to be challenged by an artist who also pushes himself."

"I have ADD, I’m a Gemini and I get bored quickly. So my next challenge is to direct, because I’m getting tired of just being a particle in the whole telling of the story. I want to be more. I want to be there from its conception.”
