Zoe Saldana once had sex between subway cars, ‘but now I’m a lady’

Zoe Saldana

These are photos of Zoe Saldana and Marco Perego at JFK Airport on Friday. Their body language seems more comfortable than it did last year. I am disturbed by Marco’s man-bun. Zoe’s starting to do interviews to promote Rosemary’s Baby remake and Guardians of the Galaxy. I wonder if she and Bradley Cooper will end up on the same red carpets for Guardians. That would be awkward.

Zoe is an enthusiastic promoter. She doesn’t jump in to the same degree as Cameron Diaz, but I suspect we’ll see a bunch of magazine spreads with Zoe wearing avant garde fashion. She’ll brag about her jar-opening abilities again. It will be fun. For now, she’s done a quickie talk on Sirius XM about strange places she’s had sex. The craziest place was between subway cars. For real:

Stand clear of the closing doors, please … unless you’re Zoe Saldana.

During an appearance on “Sway in the Morning” on SiriusXM Thursday, the Rosemary’s Baby actress revealed she’d done more than just ride the New York City subway.

“The craziest place [I’ve had sex] – I am a part of the Mile High Club,” Saldana explained. “Okay, this is ghetto, but hey, I’m from Queens, whatever. There is a train from Coney Island all the way back into the city, and in between two train cars. It was super ghetto.”

But Saldana, who is now married to Italian artist Marco Perego, was quick to note that her days filled with foreplay on the MTA are over: “But I’m a lady now. I’m a lady.”

This is so confusing. Were the subway cars moving, and she and some dude were between them? That sounds terribly dangerous but kind of exciting — if you’re into that kind of thing. I always feel like people who have to have sex in weird places may not be having the great sex they think they’re having. Does that make sense? If you can’t jazz things up enough at home, then maybe the sex isn’t that great. Also … grimy.

Zoe’s talked before about how she considers herself to be “a lady” and not a “coquettish, giddy little girl.” Some of you thought she directed those words as a side eye to Bradley Cooper and Suki Waterhouse. Perhaps.

    Long hair on a man can be sexy, if it is well taken care of. On Zoe’s husband it just looks like he found a discarded nasty weave in a dumpster and glued it to his head. Zoe is a pretty woman I might add

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      The man bun makes me throw up.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Really? I find him sexy…he could use some dry shampoo I suppose….

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        He’s handsome, but something about a man taking the time to “updo” his hair into a bun just rubs me the wrong way. Same with super gelled or blown out hair. This is sexist, I know, but I don’t like men to look like they give their hair that much thought. Long or short, I like it to look clean, but not like he spent 30 minutes in front of the mirror. Silly I guess.

      • GiGi says:

        Me, too. Dirty hot.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Ok yeah I agree with you about that but he doesn’t have a chignon here, you know? You’re making it sound like he did it up in an elaborate french twist with a bumpit when all he did was pull his greasy hair back with an elastic—not a time-consuming process.

        But I agree with you about men’s hair that looks “done” or styled or whatever. No thanks-too Jersey Shore for me.

      • GlimmerBunny says:

        I think he’s sexy too. I hate it when men look too “clean”. It’s not that I’m pro bad hygiene, I just like it when men LOOK dirty 😀

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Ok, I’ll change my mental image to him casually pulling it into a rubber band without even looking in the mirror. Much better. Mmm…much better!

      • littlestar says:

        I think he’s sexy in these pics too. To me, a man who wears his hair long has real confidence and doesn’t care what others think of his appearance. I like that.

    • bun? I thought that was a dead gerbil he had perched on top of his head…

    • Stef Leppard says:

      Exhibit A: Jared Leto.

      • kri says:

        @Stef- Sustained!! I just can’t love the man bun, and if it’s dirty looking-gross.

  2. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I always forget that she dated Cooper…weird couple.

    I think there’s a difference between people who HAVE to have sex in public places and people who have had or sometimes have sex in public places.
    Sometimes people just get horny and don’t GAF. I don’t think it’s a big deal…..

    • Original Tessa says:

      No one HAS to have sex. There isn’t a bomb in your vag that goes off if you don’t get off when you’re horny. It’s always a choice. And choosing to have sex between Subway cars, imo, is completely disgusting. May as well have said a urinal at a music festival. Public sex, if you want to go there, should at least be sanitary. On that note, avoid the ocean, or germ festering hot-tubs. That’s jut straight up nasty.

      All of this said with a wink, btw.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Some people fetishize sex in public places-that’s all I meant by that sentence.

        Look, we’re all gonna have labias to the floor and balls scraping the ground some day-why not just have fun and f*ck when you feel like it?

        People get so pearl-clutchy about this kind of thing..every time I’ve ever caught people boning in an alley or whatever, I just chuckle and keep walking. People are having fun and getting it on-I applaud them.

      • Sloane Wyatt says:

        “Look, we’re all gonna have labias to the floor and balls scraping the ground some day-why not just have fun and f*ck when you feel like it?” I like you, Kitten!

        I’m telling ya the best part about having lived your life with no regrets is the hot sex with a long haired blonde Adonis, pinned against a tree with the moonlight reflecting off the river. Youth is not always wasted on the young! (I was so proud of those secret bark burns for days!)

        *high fives Sloane*

      • Once had sex between subway cars, but now I’m a lady.

        Yeah, a lady who once had sex between subway cars.

        I care less about the public sex than I do about…EEEEEeeeeeeeew. I can’t imagine taking my pants off on the Brooklyn-bound F train…..

    • homegrrrl says:

      One of the best things about being in my 40’s is I dodged the nonexistent social media in my 20’s when I was doing all kinds of crazy S*it. That said, I don’t dredge it all up publicly, then say, “but now I’m appropriate”. What happened in the 80’s/90’s, stay in the 80’s/90’s….

      • Eleonor says:

        “I don’t dredge it all up publicly, then say, “but now I’m appropriate”. What happened in the 80′s/90′s, stay in the 80′s/90′s…”
        Co-sign, totally.
        It’s the “now I am a lady” which is too judgy for me.
        I’ve done crazy stuff too, I don’t regret it, I don’t flaunt it in public and I don’t have any problem with people who do it in public places; unless there are children and other persons who can see them.

      • Sloane Wyatt says:

        Yeah, the “Now, I’m a Lady.” bit is dumb. Didn’t Zoe ever hear that’s why ‘The Lady is a Tramp’? Own it, girl.

  3. bettyrose says:

    I’m never crazy about the term lady, but there’s definitely a time to stop getting it on in public. So, uh, good on her for knowing that.

  4. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I always thought being a lady was something ingrained in you. Something you couldn’t change even if you wanted to. Her comment made me think. Can you change into a lady? I honestly don’t know. Your behavior can certainly be more ladylike, as in you no longer have sex between subway cars, but does that really make you a lady? And by lady, I don’t mean pearl clutcher, but the female equivalent of gentleman. Someone with honor, integrity, good manners and good taste. Money has nothing to do with it. Plenty of wealthy people do not qualify, and plenty of people who aren’t wealthy do.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I think you can be someone with honor, integrity, good manners and good taste who occasionally has sex in public places. It doesn’t have to be an either/or thing.
      I’m not even sure I really like the term “lady”-it feels oppressive and patriarchal to me.

      You know what is decidedly un”lady”like? Falling down on the sidewalk while trying to get into my apartment last night.

      Lady Card REVOKED.

      • bettyrose says:

        TOK- ITA. I volunteered at a seminar for young women one time and was so heartened to hear the presenters outline all the reasons they shouldn’t concern themselves with being “ladies.” Primarily that “ladies” are “obedient” like children not strong like women.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        That’s awesome, bettyrose–and yes, exactly. The term “lady” is used as a way to ascribe rules of behavior to women by men.
        “A lady only does ______” “A lady should always do ______”

        F*ck that sh*t (oh, and a lady should never use curse words)

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Do you think men should stop trying to be gentlemen? To me, it’s the same thing. But I can see how if you think it means not speaking your mind or being true to who you are, you wouldn’t want young women to aspire to that. That’s just not what I think it means. It doesn’t mean being obedient at all, except to what YOU think is right. The women I consider “ladies” are the strongest women I know.

      • bettyrose says:

        We’re debating semantics now, but the historical implications of lady refer to what I’ve described. One can be proud, dignified, and considerate of others without embracing gender specific societally imposed labels. Not a fan of the term gentleman, either, but let’s not pretend the power dynamic involved with these terms is the same.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        They should be the same, and in the minds of the women I’m referring to, they are the same. But I agree, it isn’t worth arguing about. We won’t agree, partially because I am not explaining it well, and partially because your mind is closed to another explanation. But I like you, Betty Rose, so I hope we can just agree to disagree on this one.

        Kitten, I love you to death, but you’re either deliberately misunderstanding me or I’m not explaining what I mean well. A lady knows who she is, and doesn’t care what men think of her behavior if she knows it’s right. It has nothing to do with the language she uses or where she chooses to have sex. It’s how she respects herself and through that self respect, treats others fairly and honorably.

        Perhaps the words lady and gentleman have been twisted to mean what you think them to, and should be retired. But the true meaning is the last hope we have of not falling into a giant cesspool of Kardasian trash, money means everything, nothing is too vulgar, every person for themselves, there is nothing left to live for universe. And we are teetering on the brink as it is.

        Ok, on that happy note, I’m off now on vacation and will miss you guys. Have fun this week.

      • Sloane Wyatt says:

        Hell no! I hereby reinstate your Lady Card, TOK. Shit happens.

        All Ladies make mistakes; it’s the girls who don’t outgrow them so they can make different mistakes in the future!

    • Frida_K says:

      Precisely, Goodnames.

      I think that one can become more ladylike, with effort, but that one is either intrinsically honorable, mannerly, elegant, and decent, etc. (ladylike or a gentleman), or one is not. When push comes to shove, what’s inside shows and the veneer drops away. So…

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Exactly. Thanks, Frida_K.

      • Sloane Wyatt says:

        Nicely put Frida_K! To me, a Lady is same thing as a Woman. One her owns her power and self worth while being the best person they can is my definition of a Lady vs. being an unthinking crassly self obsessed stuck individual of low character. (Being a lady is not the same as being “A Nice Girl” and has nothing to do with ‘morals’ and sexual expression.)

        Having fun and living life on your own terms does not negate being stalwart and true. “When push comes to shove, what’s inside shows and the veneer drops away.” Indeed, that’s why The Lady is a Tramp. – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XqZt9tWeOW8

  5. Ellie66 says:

    Whyyyyy did they have to remake Rosemary’s Baby? 🙁

    • bettyrose says:

      You mean because it’s one of the most disturbingly misogynist films ever made and the original director is a child rapist? I’m honestly just going to live in denial about it. Not see it, not talk about it (Other than here, of course)…

      • Sloane Wyatt says:

        Yes, bettyrose, the director of ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ is a child rapist, but the film is a sly take on a Good Girl not buying into the power structure around her and fighting the system down to the bitter end.

        Something’s very rotten in Denmark when it comes to Patriarchy’s expectation of pregnant women and that ignoring your own misgivings at your own peril spells your very real doom.

        Rosemary’s Baby is like a big flashing sign that works as as an allegory for the patriarchal institutions that try to control and violate women’s minds and bodies.

    • bettyrose says:

      Sloan Wyatt – I confess that I haven’t watched the film since accidentally seeing it on tv as a teenager. I had no idea who the director was at the time and knew nothing of his history – but I was really disturbed by what I perceived as the message of the film, which I understood as an indulgent exploration of completely stealing a woman’s own rights to her body. It is certainly possible that I misunderstood the message. I’m intrigued by your analysis because I did not feel the movie was sympathetic to the woman, at all (and I truly was not prejudiced by knowledge of the director, who at the time I had never heard of).

      • Sloane Wyatt says:

        Classic films are like that, bettyrose, in always seeming to offer a multilayered tapestry of meaning highly dependent on the individual viewer.

        My take is that ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ is thematically like ‘The Stepford Wives’ in the shared horror of women throwing the best of their uniquity onto the omnipresent pyre of conformity and self annihilation, never realizing until it’s too late they’ve smothered their own flame. The banality of evil is that it’s so insidious in presenting itself as ‘normal’.

        I love film and literature, so it was a treat to share analysis of this film with you! Thank you!

  6. Tatjana says:

    She is very pretty, but her husband looks like he needs a bath.

  7. GeeMoney says:

    EWWWW. I hope she got a tetanus shot after her encounter in the subway.

    Her husband is HOT, but the bleached blond messy hair has got to go.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Why do people keep inferring that public sex is unsanitary?
      I’m not sure what you guys think is happening and I won’t get into details but they might have just had sex standing up.

      Y’all are acting like she’s walking around the subway trains wiping her biscuits across the walls.

      To put it as delicately as I can-you can have sex in a public place and no body part has to touch anything except for another body part.

      I’m gonna stop commenting though because people are probably all “Kitten’s getting worked up about this. She must bone in public places”. I really don’t, but I reserve the right to, if I feel like it 😉

      • bettyrose says:

        Again TOK I agree but I’m honestly not sure how one could manage sex on a moving train (especially a rickety NY subway thar rocks and shakes) without having your uncovered bits rubbing against public nastiness. Seriously, when I’m in NYC I wear gloves for holding subway handrails.

      • GeeMoney says:

        I’m judging from your comment that you’ve never been on a subway in NYC. I’m not ewwwing over the fact that she had sex in a public place, I’m ewwwing over the fact that it was in a nasty NYC subway. The level of filth in that place is UNREAL.

      • Nighty says:

        Wow? That filthy hum? Never been to NYC, so I can’t comment on thta, plus… where does she say the cars were moving? If so, that mus have been really tricky to do… but ok…
        About the term “Lady” – I hate it, it gives the connotation of 200 years ago.. Be a lady, don’t do that, that’s not lady like… It’s a very closed-minded term, in my opinion…. What is exactly a lady? A woman who always behaves at her best, never does anything shameful, never eats with her hands (she’ll probably eat a burger with knife and fork because picking it with a napkin is “rude”). f you’re a real lady you don’t have FWB, no sex in public places, oh the horror, the scandal..Wearing mini-skirts? That’s not for a lady… That has always been my perception of what people think a lady is… Perhaps because that’s the perception royalty families across Europe give that perception….

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        @Bettyrose-also possible that she’s full of shit.

        I’ve been on the NYC subways many, many times. They’re not any filthier than the Boston subway.
        My point was that if you ride the subway, you’re touching the seats/handles/poles at some point. Based on that alone, perhaps you should consider a tetanus shot as well?

      • bettyrose says:

        TOK – Whoa, girl. I didn’t say anything about a tetanus shot. That wasn’t me. I was just having trouble imaging the logistics of that particular scenario, but if it helps I carry hand sanitizer with me at all times and use it on the mass transit systems of San Francisco, Chicago, New York, London, Tokyo, etc. I’m sure my germ phobia would kick into gear in Boston, too, but I don’t have many opportunities to visit.

        Having said that, I confess that I’ve had sex in public in my youth – in a park, on grass. Ill advised, but dirt grosses me out less than subway poles touched daily by thousands of sneeze-filled hands.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Sorry-my second part of my comment was directed to GeeMoney. Should have specified that!

        I’m with you about the subway grossness. In Boston you see people eating and shit on the train. So effin gross.

      • GeeMoney says:


        The subway is gross – period. And yes, I’ve considered having a full range of shots getting off the DC metro. And the metro there isn’t even half as bad as the NYC one.

        Perhaps it’s just really x of me to think that train car sex in a filthy place is nasty. But then again, I’m a Virgo. And we like clean places to do our business in… so whatever.

      • JustChristy says:

        Taking a moment to both enjoy “wiping her biscuits,” and wondering if that means upper, lower front, or lower rear. Or some combination of the three. It makes her seem quite limber! 😉

  8. Beth says:

    She bothers me. It got worse with Star Trek into Darkness. I don’t know. She’s probably a lovely person. But she bothers me.

    • Penny says:

      Then don’t watch that train wreck “Words” with her & Bradley Cooper. It was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo bad. But she is gorgeous and Cooper’s hot. It’s fun 2 watch 2 hot people feign romance.

  9. OTHER RENEE says:

    I hate long hair on men.

  10. Ag says:

    Her husband looks really skanky here.

    Meh on the subway sex. I’ve made out and smoked up in-between cars. At the end of the line, there’s no one around.

  11. Blackwood says:

    what’s with people and their need to tell us about their sex life? is “the weirdest place where you took a dump” going to be the next hot topic?
    Also, I know I must sound like a prude (I don’t think I am, but whatever), but to me public sex is disrespectful. ALL public sex, period. I don’t care if you get caught or not, someone will always have to clean up after you (most people who use condoms just toss them around, they don’t even take them to a garbage can) and if you do get caught, you just managed to involve someone in your sex life without their consent.
    I know my opinion is not very popular among people nowadays, but I feel strongly about anything that reeks of entitlement and public sex does. It’s like people think they “deserve” or “have a right” to get their rocks off wherever they are (everyone else be damned) like animals that can’t control themselves, when in fact they can choose to wait until they get somewhere private.
    Sorry, end of rant.

    • Melanie says:

      I actually agree with what you’re saying. I also don’t see anything classy or ladylike about talking publicly about how much you love sex or your favorite sex positions, which she has done more than once. Not to mention she is always talking about how she doesn’t need a guy to do anything for her. Zoe has great skin and hair, I’ll give her those things, but I really don’t care for her personality.

    • Kim1 says:

      Probably started thirty years ago on the Newlywed Show.FYI Sherri Shepherd is the current host of the show.Every episode they ask where is the strangest place you have had sex.

    • Jessica says:

      I completely agree with you.

  12. FingerBinger says:

    Meh. She’s just trying to make herself sound more interesting. Just like Cameron Diaz when she talked about her encounters with women.

  13. LadyS says:

    She’s incredibly annoying.

  14. Rhea says:

    Yuck! I know by experiences that usually the train from Coney Island to the city don’t have that many passangers and it’s a loong ride for sure, BUT she would need to hold on into something to keep the balance if she did it between the cars (honestly, it’s dangerous and good thing she’s ok).

    Plus it’s super dirty and thick with dust! My skin getting itchy already thinking about it. Ugh!

  15. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    She’s dating Elle McPherson?

  16. Melanie says:

    I would be really embarrassed if my in-laws(or anyone else for that matter) read about me doing something like that.

  17. Nell Graham says:

    Honestly, if you’re that much of a lady you wouldn’t mention an experience that was so private and “unladylike”. We all have moments during which we didn’t act to the height of sophistication…that’s where discretion comes in!

  18. Nene says:

    I know this is sexist but long hair is a huge turn-off for me in guys- I don’t give a f*** how smoking hot the guy might be.

    And am so over celeb women blabing about their fave sex postions,vaj,how many sex partners they’ve had or other intimate details.
    Ok, so it’s their body and their life but not everyone cares to know about it!
    Moreover freely talking about such private issues has nothing to do with women liberation or owning of their sexuality. It’s high time these female celebs(Cam.Diaz,Goop,Brandi,to name a few) got it into their freakin’ heads.

  19. Tig says:

    I think she’s gorgeous, and look forward to avant garde photo shoots with her if that’s in the cards.

    Re sex in public places- get your freak on but know that if the wrong folks walk up on you etc you risk someone filming your close encounter, or possibly getting arrested for indecent exposure, and if convicted/plead guilty, in some jurisdictions that puts one on a sex offender registry. And I concur with previous poster- there is just some info the general public doesn’t need to know!

    Lady my ass.

    Seriously, who the hell gets injected between subway cars! How does one even do that while its moving?
