Our cover girl’s in a bit of hot water over her recent comments in Ebony Magazine…
Zoe Saldana says black actresses who complain about lack of opportunities in Hollywood should get off their butts and stop complaining because America has a black president.
“We have a Black president right now,” the actress said in her Ebony magazine cover story. “So why the f— would I sit down and talk about how hard it is for Black women in Hollywood when there’s a Black president in my country?”
And it’s that attitude she says that helps her land her movie roles. “When I go after a part, [people] better watch their backs,” she says. “Not because I’m going to crush everybody, but because I’m going to give the best that I can because I strive for excellence. When you don’t get a part, it is for a reason, and these pieces will fall into place soon.”
