Zoe Saldana: “Ethnic” Is The New N-WordPublished by Runteldat on Friday, March 5, 2010 at 12:00 am.
FernGully 3 Avatar star Zoe Saldana is gracing the cover of the latest Glamour magazine and in her interview she touched on issues pertaining to race and life.
Judging from past quotes Zoe doesn’t like to really talk about race at length. When she was recently asked about the controversy surrounding the pale Hollywood issue of Vanity Fair she basically sideswiped the issue by talking about how great America was.
Anyhow here’s an excerpt from her interview in the April 2010 edition of Glamour:
GLAMOUR: In past interviews, you’ve bristled on the topic of race. Why?
ZOË SALDANA: Because ethnic is a word that doesn’t exist in my vocabulary. In Hollywood, you hear things like, “Oh, they loved you but they want to go more traditional.” That’s the new N word. So when [someone says] I look “dark,” I say, “Dark compared to whom? This is just my skin.”
Maybe Tinker Bell will fly down from heaven and get everyone in this country to see Zoe’s philosophy.
In the meantime, here’s Zoe on what she’s looking more of in life:
“I want to have more sex, travel more, drink more wine and love life.”
So drunk sex on foreign soil? I’m with it.
