Zoe Saldaña has only recently started opening up about her one-year long marriage to Italian artist Marco Perego – though she won’t touch the pregnancy rumors.
“I was finally able to spend time without being in a relationship, and even though it was a short period of time, it was beautiful,” the 36-year-old said. “I lost the fear of being alone. It was bliss.”
Saldaña and Perego were first spotted kissing at a “Star Trek Into Darkness” afterparty in May 2013 and it didn’t take her a long time to know that he was “the one.” They secretly wed later that summer.
“I met my partner when I was in a really beautiful place in my life,” Saldaña told the magazine. “It was like I found all answers with him, not in him. I was finding my answers on my own.”
She added: “We both feel we are artists in our core. One moment you’re up; the next moment you’re down. It all depends. You can sell a collection, you might not sell the next collection. It’s like an actor – you get cast or you don’t.”
The “Guardians of the Galaxy” star said she knows Hollywood success comes in waves, but won’t be giving up – something her husband understands.
“I was a ferocious dancer so therefore I was a ferocious up-and-coming actress,” Saldaña said. “When it comes to auditions, I’m not competitive with anybody. I don’t even know who’s sitting next to me. I wouldn’t even tell you if it was a blonde or brunette. The moment you compare yourself, it weakens you.”
The Dominican-American actress will soon appear in the sequels of “Avatar.”
“(Neytiri) is stronger than what I wanted this time, but she’s also very vulnerable. It’s very much her journey and I accepted the job again because I believe the script has her going in the right path,” she said. “Jake and Neytiri are very much still a force to be reckoned with.”
