Zoe Saldana has been making a name for herself as one of the most in-demand women in Hollywood.

She has a jam-packed schedule ahead of her, with the filming of movies such as Star Trek 3, the Avatar sequels and Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

Midst her busy workload, the 37-year-old has two beautiful twin boys whom she gave birth to just seven months ago. But Zoe has revealed some of the difficulties of being a mother and working in Hollywood.

“Let me tell you something, it will never be the right time for anybody in your life that you get pregnant,” the Star Trek star explained to USA Today.

“The productions I was slated to work on sort of had a panic. I heard through the grapevine there was even a conversation of me being written off of one of the projects.”

While the star thankfully didn’t lose out on any roles because of her pregnancy, she has had a really tough time getting the studios to bring in child care.

Ms Saldana is livid because of the discrepancy that occurs between the benefits for male and female actors.

She claims that studios “spend more money sometimes ‘perking’ up male superstars in a movie,” paying for their private jets, assistants and extravagant lifestyles, whereas she has to fight just to get childcare.

“But then a woman comes in going, ‘OK, I have a child. You’re taking me away from my home. You’re taking my children away from their home. And you’re going to make me work a lot more hours than I usually would if I was home. Therefore, I would have to pay for this nanny for more hours – so I kind of need that.”

To which Ms Saldana said the studios reply with, “Nope, we don’t pay for nannies.”

It is certainly clear that stereotypical gender roles do not play a big part in the Saldana household. When the actress married her husband, Marco Perego, in 2013, he took her last name.

When Zoe tried to talk him out of the decision because she felt he would be emasculated, he simply replied, “Ah Zoe, I don’t give a s**t.”

We love him already!

Has Zoe Saldana found the perfect man? Definitely!

Actress Zoe has been speaking of her husband Marco’s decision to take her surname upon their marriage – rather than the other way around.

Oh, and did we mention he is really really ridiculously good-looking?

The Guardians Of The Galaxy star sits beaming on the cover of the July issue of InStyle magazine, in which she reveals how Italian artist Marco Perego took her name after the two secretly married back in the summer of 2013.

Zoe explained that she even tried to talk him out of taking her name, despite being "proud" of him.

She stated: "I tried to talk him out of it. I told him: 'If you use my name, you’re going to be emasculated by your community of artists, by your Latin community of men, by the world,'" she told InStyle.

"But Marco looks up at me and says [she puts on a cute Italian accent]: 'Ah, Zoe, I don’t give a sheet'.”

Ms Saldana recently posted a Facebook status about her husband's decision to take her name, urging men to defy gender stereotypes.

"Fathers, sons, brothers, men everywhere: Your legacy will not perish if you take your partner's surname, or she keeps hers.

"I’ve been made aware that a comment I made regarding my marriage has garnered some attention. I felt proud that my husband decided to take my last name as his own… and I his.

"Why is it so surprising, shocking, eventful that a man would take his wife's surname? Women have never been asked if its OK for them to give up their names – why doesn’t that make the news?

"Men, you will not cease to exist by taking your partner’s surname. On the contrary — you’ll be remembered as a man who stood by change. I know our sons will respect and admire their father more because their father lead by example."

The couple had twins boys back in November 2014, and Saldana has furthermore spoken about the challenges and changes that motherhood brings.

Britney Spears was on Entertainment Tonight last night when she was asked if she and her Crossroads co-star Zoe Saldana would do another film together. Without thinking, Britney replied:

“Who knows? That’s a very good idea. But she’s pregnant with twins right now. So I'm sure she's got a huge future ahead of her.”

Though it was rumoured that Zoe was expecting twins, the actress hadn’t yet confirmed the news herself – and now she doesn’t have to, so at least that’s one thing of her to-do list!

We didn’t realise that the two stars were still friends, though Zoe did rush to Britney’s defence when an un-edited track of her song Alien was leaked. She spoke about Britney on a talk show, saying:

“She was the one big, big celebrity that I met when I was starting to work in Hollywood who literally was humble.

“I do believe that people and children gravitate to good energy, and she's definitely an abundance of that.

“I'm pretty sure that 80 per cent of our musical artists would be mortified if they were caught singing without auto-tune.”

Awh, that’s nice. Though she didn’t exactly stress that Britney CAN actually sing, she was just warming up her voice so some such excuse, so maybe this was Britney’s payback!

Zoe Saldana’s pregnancy may have sparked some concern for Avatar fans as she is meant to be filming the sequel where she reprises her role as alien warrior Neytiri, and how is she meant to do that with a baby bump?!

However, director James Cameron said that it won’t affect the filming schedule at all:

“The beauty of doing the performance capture is that she can be as big as a house and it doesn't really matter.

“She might have some physical limitations running around through the jungle, but we can get around all that stuff, because we're not photographing her, we're 'capturing' her.”

Besides, Cameron says that Zoe may well have given birth before filming starts: “The way the writing and preproduction is working out, we probably won't start until the first quarter of next year anyway.”

Zoe Saldana finally puts an end to all of those rumours and has confirmed, through her publicist that she’s expecting her first child.

Her rep says that Zoe and her husband Marco Perego will welcome their first child later this year.

Rumours started that the actress might be expecting, when she was spotted with what looked like a baby bump at the Guardians of the Galaxy.

The actress spoke previously of how she would love to have children with Marco.

"Or four or five! I don't care. They're just so delicious. I love the anxiety, the pressure of the loud room full of yapping kids. But I'm a kid myself. I get along very well with animals and children. I dig them. I get them. They make perfect sense to me. A child makes perfect sense to me. A child speaks more sense than an adult half of the time."

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Star Trek star, Zoe Saldana has opened up about married life, as well as some of the lessons she’s learnt from love in the latest issue of Marie Claire.

Zoe who secretly married her partner Marco Perego in England last year said the decision made perfect sense to her.

"I don't do the ABCs. I do what my heart says, what my heart feels. So from the moment I met my husband, we were together. We knew."

The 36-year-old then went on to share some lessons that she’s learnt from past relationships, and says when it comes to love, you should never settle.

“Not to settle. If you’re not happy with a person, leave. And wait until you find that one person who makes you feel good about yourself every single day and is not expecting you to change, but to grow.”

Without naming names, Zoe reveals for good reasons why she doesn’t keep in touch with her exes!

“I have been in relationships where a man has disrespected me, and I don’t need to be friends with that man anymore. I don’t want to be the one going, ‘I’m cool, because I’m friends with all my exes.’ There’s a reason why you’re called an ex. I crossed you off my list. Moving on. You cross a line, you need to know that you’re going to walk this earth knowing that there’s an individual who has no respect for you.”

Makes sense to us, we think Zoe should become our relationship guru from now on!

The Star Trek actress spoke about her excitement about being L’Oreal’s new spokesperson: “It puts the stamp on, like, ‘Congratulations, you’re finally a real woman!”

Saldana is featured in a video promoting L’Oreal which includes her looking at childhood photos and reminiscing.

“I definitely had an ugly duckling phase, kind of a grow-into-a-swan thing,” she says. “In the beginning, I didn’t know what turn I may go in. After my teenage years, I began owning my own beauty and working with what I have.”
