Zoe Saldana ‘would like to thank all the f-ing media for invading our privacy’

Zoe Saldana

This month has seen tons of media speculation about Zoe Saldana’s uterus. She was wearing overalls and loose clothing for weeks, which was a huge tip off. Zoe never said anything herself, but one of Zoe’s friends gave an exclusive to Us Weekly last Monday. Then multiple sources revealed to E! that Zoe and husband Marco Perego were expecting twins.

Zoe has already revealed a visible bump on the Guardians of the Galaxy red carpets, but she’s still furious that people are talking about her pregnancy. She whipped out her bitch on Twitter about it: “I would like to thank all the f—ing media for invading our privacy.

Zoe Saldana

Did you hear that? Now the media has “disrespected” Zoe. The thing is, she’s correct in a way. As much as I’d like to give Zoe a hard time for throwing attitude, she does have a right to complain about this. Celebrities implicitly agree to give up a certain amount of privacy when they seek out fame. Pregnancy is a delicate matter though. Especially in the early stages when things can go wrong. Any pregnant woman should have the right to announce her pregnancy when she decides to do so.

Zoe has balls for tweeting out against the media in the middle of a press tour. And with added profanity to boot. That part wasn’t very classy. She does need to figure out which of her friends are leaking to the press. Plug those holes, girl.

    Lol. Her husband looks like a Vegas magician or Jim Carrey in that Burt Wunderstone movie.

    I just can’t with this woman. Sooooo annoying.

    • Liv says:

      I don’t like her much either. Thandie Newton is the better Zoe Saldana in my opinion.

      And regarding her complaints – didn’t she call the paps multiple times when she was with Cooper? I can’t imagine that they just showed up everywhere they were.

      • TG says:

        Good point and considering she was bearding for Coops too. What a hypocrite. She is trying to pretend to be Kerry Washington. You have to actually value your privacy and be interesting in order to be Kerry. Take a seat Zoe. I still like Zoe in movies but she is like many celebs every time they open their mouth they get more annoying and less interesting.

      • Nomaden says:

        how do you know she called the paps? and Thandie Newton is no better actress than Zoe.

      • Liv says:

        @Nomaden Just like I said I doubt the paps shot her and Cooper that often by accident. And like TG said, she’s not Kerry Washington, who really gets papped rarely and stays mum about her private life. Plus Kerry’s not a bitch to journalists, she’s able to tell them politely that she doesn’t talk about her private life.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Liv, who wrote: “I don’t like her much either. Thandie Newton is the better Zoe Saldana in my opinion.

        What’s your point? That there’s already a thin, pretty, light-skinned woman of color in Thandie Newton so why do we need Zoe too??? Is ‘that’ why Zoe has gotten so much major Shade from the moment she starred in both “Star Trek” and “Avatar” in the same year? And by the way … if Zoe hadn’t been just ‘another’ thin, pretty, light-skinned woman of color she would have been Queen of the World for having two blockbuster films debut in the same year.

        Again @ Liv, who wrote: “And regarding her complaints – didn’t she call the paps multiple times when she was with Cooper? I can’t imagine that they just showed up everywhere they were.”

        No one who looked as uncomfortable as Zoe did when the Paps caught them in the garage while trying to seek into a Sunday film matinee ‘called’ the Paps.

      • Liv says:

        Emma, don’t be crazy. I think they look a bit alike, I used to mistake them for each other, so that’s probably why I said I like Thandie Newton more. I don’t get why you make this about color now.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Liv, who wrote: “Emma, don’t be crazy. I think they look a bit alike, I used to mistake them for each other, so that’s probably why I said I like Thandie Newton more. I don’t get why you make this about color now.”

        Sorry, my crystal ball isn’t working today, so I wouldn’t have known why you ‘probably said’ what you said. 🙂 Yes, Thandie and Zoe ‘do’ slightly favor each other, but Zoe is younger, a bit darker, and 3 1/2″ taller.

      • Liv says:

        I know that they are not twins, but I think they look similar and have a lot in common. So I wondered why I like Thandie and why I don’t like Zoe – I suppose it’s about character. Of course I don’t know Zoe, but she comes across pretty bitchy.

      • SK says:

        Emma – in regards to Zoe, B-Coop and the paps: they came into my friends’ restaurant in 2012 it is a really cool NYC restaurant that a lot of celebs frequent. All of my friends who worked there were laughing about them because they went to a prime celeb spot, asked for the most central table, and then put on the biggest PDA any of them had ever seen. It was ridiculously overboard. They said no other celeb couples that come in behave like that. It was clearly a calculated PR move to be seen together as a couple at an “It” Spot.

        I still love Zoe for Centre Stage, even though her statements sometimes grate! We’re having a Centre Stage screening night at my place soon! 😉

      • Suzy from Ontario says:

        I don’t like her either. Her comment makes me want to yell STFU at her. She was desperate for fame and now that she’s got some she’s complaining about it. Grow up! She’s like a piss-poor version of Thandie who out-acts and out-classes her by miles. Zoe is just annoying.

      • sunsetsnow says:

        I like them both. Not quite sure how Thandie came into the post about Zoe. They don’t look alike and both are talented.

    • cece says:

      LOL. He does look like Jim Carrey character in that movie, and there is something about him gives me the creeps.

    • Becky1 says:

      I’m sorry-I can’t sympathize. She’s famous and she’s obviously pregnant-there’s going to be media attention whether she wants it or not. If she wanted privacy she could have chosen to teach theater, be a stage actress rather than do movies or TV or chosen a different profession altogether. There are thousands of actors vying for the kind of fame and money she has. Life if full of trade offs-if you want to be a high profile actress you have to sacrifice privacy to some degree. That’s life. Cry me river-there are many people out there with real problems who would trade places with her in a heartbeat.

      • MW says:

        Becky1 — PERFECTLY stated ^^^ !!

      • Suzy from Ontario says:

        Plus it’s like…if you don’t want the Paps taking pix of you all the time, then take your money and move somewhere in the world where that hardly happens. There are lots of stars who rarely get Papped. There are lots of things you can do to minimize it, although like Becky1 says: there are tons of people who who trade places with her in a second for all the fame and money and if she doesn’t like it then she can quit acting and so find a new career. It’s one of the negatives they have to put up with in exchange for all that luxury they live in, and they know it going in, so imo, they should stop bitching about it. Plus, what? No one is going to notice her bulging belly? She’s super skinny and carrying twins is going to make her huge. That’s going to be noticeable.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        “Real problems”???
        You know that celebs can have miscarriages too. They are not immune from “real problems”.

    • shannon says:

      +1000. Plus, I don’t think people give as much of a sh-t about her bump as she would like them to.

    • Sarah says:

      I just don’t like her at all. If the media wasn’t talking about her, she’d be bitching about that, claiming some sort of female/racial bias. Just shut up.

  2. Ostone says:

    Either she is unlikeable or her PR people need to give her lessons on how to come across. There are other celebs with higher caliber who are able to go incognito with engagements, weddings, family issues and especially pregnancies. She just seems whiny and ungrateful.

    • Stef Leppard says:

      It’s like the whole thing with Mila Kunis and her shredded vagina. Either talk about your personal life or don’t, but when you talk about some very personal things and then get pissed when people talk about your private life, we just get fking confused.

    • als says:

      Exactly, there are many actresses that have gone through her situation and haven’t pulled this kind of bitchiness.
      I will never pay one cent to see a movie of this woman – because in the end it all comes down to money. I have no interest in knowing this pregnancy stuff, but the media is useful in revealing what kind of people we are giving our money to.
      She works in an industry in which actors (that often enough contribute the least and get paid the most for a film) are overrated and overpayed. I don’t want her to sacrifice her first born for these huge paychecks, just to deal with these issue privately.
      In this economy, I decided to give my hard earned money to the likes of Hugh Jackman, Meryl Streep, James McAvoy, Angelina Jolie, etc.

      • Marianne says:

        I think not seeing any movies she’s in is kind of a silly attitude. I mean, I can understand not wanting to support someone truly horrible (like Mel Gibson for instance)…but you never want to see a movie she’s in, simply cause she’s a little bitchy? K Then. Might as well stop seeing all movies together, cause Im sure there is at least one bitch that worked on it.

    • Nikki says:

      I disagree. Just because a friend revealed it, I think pregnancies should be revealed by the couple. Suppose, God forbid, she has a miscarriage, or finds out something is wrong with the fetus, and decides to terminate. How can she spin that one?

      I guess, I’m the only one who remember Robin Thicke and Paula Patton’s first “phantom” pregnancy back in 2008. Urban blogs kept saying she was pregnant, they kept denying. And then . . . no baby.

      • Bridget says:

        But she’s fairly obviously pregnant in the most recent set of pictures, taken at a movie premier. How is that invading anyone’s privacy?

      • whatevs says:

        If she has a miscarriage she doesn’t need to “spin” anything. While I agree that they should be given the chance to decide when and where to announce it, a miscarriage isn’t something that she needs to “spin”. Bad choice of words. Not sure why she would even need to? Spin it in to what? You make it sound like she would need to do damage control.

      • Nikki says:

        Any time a celeb discusses something deeply personal about their life with the media, it’s spin to me. They’re selling something, a movie, a book, a cause or themselves.

        Zoe is still in her first trimester, we can comment all we want, but People, Us, etc, should not be “confirming” her pregnancy.

        That being said, Zoe should have taken a page out of Ryan and Eva’s book and said nothing.

      • Bridget says:

        That woman is not in her first trimester – she is easily 4 months along. And again, she OBVIOUSLY pregnant. No one needed to confirm what we can see with our own eyes. If she didn’t want to discuss it she could have easily chosen to wear a flow-ier dress, instead of one that was fitted and had a giant white arrow accentuating her bump.

      • Namaat says:

        Very uncomfortable with all that. I’m not particularly a fan of her, don’t follow her work or public/social media life, but I know enough to realise she’s not in the very small group of celebrities who never call(ed) the paps. Does that mean she has to put up with anything from the media? I don’t think so. I don’t think anything is fair game because “insert excuse here”. It looks too much like victim-blaming, if you consent to “this” you don’t have a say in “that”. It’s bullsh*t.

        Other uncomfortable notion, the “obvious pregnancy”. And the retrograding of a woman body to a “pregnant woman body” with its different (mostly smaller) set of rights, like the fact that commenting a pregnant body becomes all right. I saw a graph some time ago about when (according to belly perimeter and shape) is it okay to congratulate/ask a complete stranger about her due date, baby gender etc. The answer is never.
        Women can put on weight for other reasons than pregnancy. Including in the waist. Whether it’s an actual baby bump or just looks like one doesn’t matter. It’s rude regardless. A unknown pregnant woman is still a unknown woman. She doesn’t become an acquaintance it’s okay to ask about, and her belly is no public interest. Don’t talk about it unless she brings it up.

        Finally, I can’t really blame her for her choice of clothes on a red carpet. Celebrities don’t always choose. They have deals with brands and designers. And even if she picked that particular dress herself, I still don’t think it equals an explicit announcement. Only an explicit announcement does.

        I don’t have many qualms about royal bump watching, esp. for married-in royals, and maybe for family life reality stars as well, because it’s basically what puts a roof on their heads, and they know/agreed to it when they signed in, but when career and family life are separated (like it is for acting, singing, modeling etc.) I think it’s gross to cross the line.

      • Marianne says:

        I agree that the actresses should have say in their own announcement….but its not like she’s going the way of Eva Mendes and being private about it. We can obviously tell she is pregnant by these pictures.

      • Jacqueline says:

        If that’s the case, get bent out of shape at your friends, not the media. She is a famous actress and looking pregnant on a press tour. Of course they’re going to run with the story!

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Namaat, I agree with everything you wrote.

    • Nomaden says:

      you’re dumb just like the rest of the people commenting this thing.
      She clearly is not angry because they say she’s pregnant when it’s obvious (though she has the right to announce it when the heck she wants to) but don’t make the media innocent here: how the freaking hell can they know she’s 3 months and expecting twins? THAT means someone is invading her privacy and she has every fucking right to call them out on that, rude and all.

      • Gigi says:

        “you’re dumb” – very adult way to express disagreement…

      • ORLY says:

        Nomaden- why are you so angry? You’re taking this rather personal, even swearing.

      • Madgdeline says:


        I don’t understand if people are playing oblivious for the sake of hating on her or they are really dumb and don’t get it, though.

      • aenflex says:

        They know about the pregnancy because her friend spilled the beans to US. Did you not read the post? Maybe she needs to be calling out her inner circle.
        I don’t feel for her at all, she’s whined almost the entirety of her career.

  3. hutter says:

    That’s the quote she picked, seriously? I mean, God bless Lech Walesa but “I believe that any violation of privacy is nothing good” isn’t the most eloquent statement about privacy I’ve ever read (it does fit needly in a tweet though).
    Aaaand you’re just drawing more attention to yourself, Genius. Should’ve just ignored it.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Thank you! That was my first thought as well–what a terrible quote.

  4. GeeMoney says:

    I think this is more of an issue of having terrible friends that can’t keep their mouth shut than the media just being the media.

    Check your friends in your circle, girl.

    • Nomaden says:

      They say ‘friends’ just to cover their ass because they can get sued for that stuff, but you can never know if the crazies went to the doctor or tried to find the info in some other way

      I don’t understand why you all defend the media. They make money with this shit using the names of the stars and invading their privacy in the most sickening ways. And we’re so dumb to actually open their sites and make them gain more money with the advertisings.

      • Klaw says:

        If they are getting info from medical providers they need to be put in jail. Both the culpable media and the people supplying the info.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        If a doctor gave her medical condition to anyone besides Zoe and/or anyone she signed a release for, that doctor would be guilty of violating HIPAA, which is a federal act and can carry serious penalties.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Klaw and paranormalgirl, yes, they would have violated the law if medical personal shared this information, but that hasn’t stopped them in the past.

        Michael Jackson’s death, Britney’s and Amanda Bynes’ medical care….medical laws get violated regularly by TMZ (and others) and it seems the legal system is too bought off to address these violations. Yes, it would be illegal but that doesn’t mean it did not happen.

  5. blue marie says:

    She should be mad at her “friend” that gave up the info to US Weekly.

  6. Anna says:

    I’m sure all this publicity is super annoying just as her big Marvel movie is coming out. It’s not like blogs and tabloids will cover this story now, all mentioning Guardians of the Galaxy. If you want no publicity, Zoe, don’t join a Marvel movie.

  7. Luca26 says:

    ‘ Pregnancy is a delicate matter though. Especially in the early stages when things can go wrong’

    I agree with this wholeheartedly. One of my close friends just had her third miscarriage . As much as I love the spectacle of celebrity gossip when it comes to pregnancy stories especially of late I’m sick of some of the commentary. There are reasons why women try to protect their privacy and they have a right to it even if they are famous.

    • T.C. says:

      I completely agree that she should have privacy regarding such a delicate matter. However she showed up at a BIG movie premiere with at least a 4 month pregnant belly. It was there for all to see so I’m not sure how the media invaded her privacy this time around. She of course could have pulled an Eva Mendes and just not shown up but maybe it wasn’t an option.

      • Nomaden says:

        yes but how the hell can the media know from the pictures that she’s expecting twins and she’s 3 months? will they reveal the sex too?
        give me a break
        why are you all playing so oblivious when it’s so obvious that it’s not the pregnancy rumor alone that made her angry. She made that comment over twitter only after the ‘twins’ articles started popping up.

      • lisa2 says:


        The media has done that with many celebs; printed that this or that one is having a boy/girl. twins.. and even in some cases giving the children names. She is not the first nor the last. She is lucky that I don’t see her plastered on the cover of tabloids. Not sure if she has paps stalking her 24/7. Some celebs have that and had it when expecting.

        the truth comes out in the end. I think maybe she is angry because what they are reporting is true. There have been stories for weeks about her being pregnant. The pictures of her don’t look like a 3 month pregnant woman.. but if there are in fact twins.. then yes I can see that.

        She may need to investigate where the leak came from. If from friends then that is something to change and if the medical facility then I would sue.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      I agree but she is a public figure who is obviously pregnant, did she expect the press not to notice? Making silly comments on twitter will not help her. She should have announced the pregnancy herself before hitting the red carpet and if the twins rumor is true, she needs to find which of her “friends” got paid to spill the beans. The media is just a social apparatus, one she participates in, she needs to learn some diplomatic skills rather than senselessly vent in social media. Privacy is relatively easy to obtain if you want it but these people in HW sure like to pretend otherwise.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I agree, Luca.

  8. Jackson says:

    She needs to get over herself already. How is the media invading her privacy? By commenting on the fact that she’s got the beginnings of a big ol’ baby bump? It’s there. It’s obvious. If she wanted this kept a secret then she needed to stay out of the public eye until she wanted people to know about it. It’s no different than the chick who works at the small town Dairy Queen – neighbors come in and see her bump and know she’s pregnant, whether she wants it known yet or not. No big invasion of privacy, just people having eyes and knowing what a pregnant belly looks like.

    • Nomaden says:

      commenting the obvious baby bump is a thing. Posting articles about her being 3 months and expecting twins at 36 with a possibly high risk pregnancy when the mother hasn’t even announced the pregnancy yet is another.

      • Maria says:

        I agree.

        She upset about the twin news and it’s understandable; as a public figure, there ARE aspects of her life that will inevitably be up for grabs publicly, but the delicacy and complications regarding pregnancy-especially as a latina woman (we have ridiculously high complications during this time) compounded with her age-I get it.

        People seem to confuse the lines between art and personal.

        Yes, we all comment on this board and indulge ourselves, but there IS a line to be drawn.

        Could Zoe have used more tact? Sure, but she’s entitled to be angry.


  9. snowflake says:

    another day, another complaint. it’s either a complaint or advice. thank goodness, i’ve been dying to hear what she has to say. *rolls eyes* get a normal job, you wont have to deal with it

  10. Meredith says:

    And look at the black dress with the white “belt” she is wearing to the premiere. It accentuates the baby bump and screams look at this! Then she says the press is invading her privacy?? She is getting very annoying in a Katherine Heigl there-goes-my-career kind of way. Time to get off Twitter, girlfriend, and lay low with the complaints for a while.

    • Wallamalooo says:

      I’m with you, Meredith, she’s as much as a famewhore as the rest of them.

    • Artemis says:

      She’s doing the most. Sometimes I start to like her but then she acts all extra again and lord knows she shouldn’t be so uppity because despite starring in 3 franchises, her talent is abysmal. And she’s boring AF!

      Everybody with eyes and a brain could deduce that she was pregnant. The black dress (bottom) might have been ‘burrito baby’ but the other one (top) clearly shows it’s a pregnancy bump. Saldana is super thin and she’s carrying twins, like…media just pointed out the obvious.

      • Sullivan says:

        @Artemis: “uppity” ??

      • Artemis says:

        Yeah, arrogant. I thought the meaning was clear?

      • karen says:

        It’s funny that when women of a certain hue dare to not be sweet as pie and grateful to be here, they get called ‘uppity’. Look at any Lupita thread and you’ll see that word several times. The racist connotations to that word make it so inappropriate to use, and let’s not pretend otherwise.

      • andypandy says:

        @ Karen x 1000
        Like we don’t know what those code words mean LOL
        its like young white boys can commit the most atrocious acts and be called jerks etc but the word “thug” is reserved for those of a certain hue

      • Artemis says:


        Being biracial myself, if I had know about the racist connotations I would not have used it. Now that I’m informed, I will not use the word anymore for any person. If it’s any ‘consolation’, I use this word all the time for non-POC people too but again, I will not use the word anymore.

        For the rest of the comment, i like Lupita and I wouldn’t call her arrogant. She makes a million times more sense than Saldana ever will.
        My comment was based on what I read about Saldana in interviews and for me, she’s just as arrogant and annoying as Kunis or Roberts.

        It’s not about not being sweet, it’s about complaining when there’s really no reason and the sad part is, it’s all she does. When she had the chance to make a statement in regards to her playing Nina Simone (big mistake), she totally dismissed the criticism and made it about her. She’s always talking without saying anything poignant tbh and for somebody so successful, she should find another talking point or really put her back into supporting her fellow sisters.

    • LeahMommy says:

      Yes! That ugly dress accentuated her belly big time and she picked it to do just that. I mean that white thing is screaming LOOK, LOOK, PLEASE LOOK, I’M PREGNANT!!! I can’t with those celebrities, especially her. She is just so rude.

      • kri says:

        I’m with you LeahMommy. It is a like a giant baby arrow. Are we not supposed to be able to see how pregnant she is? I am happy for her and wish her well. I get that maybe she “wanted to announce it”. I thought that was what the arrow was for. Anyway, #moviestarfirstbabyrant.

    • Nomaden says:

      you all are complaining and bitching here about this actress yet she apparently doesn’t have the right to have feelings and get annoyed about people speculating and earning money over her own body and pregnancy that at 36 could be high risk.

      What is more ridiculous? someone complaining about something that actually touches them personally or you all bitching and complaining about a stranger on the internet

      • ORLY says:

        Girl, you really need to calm down.

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        Lol, you need to relax Nomaden, you’re taking this much too seriously. Gossip is perfectly natural, the chitter chatter and snarking here is nothing new or particularly meaningful. Just because we vent our inner bitchiness doesn’t mean we’re horrible people on a campaign against those we complain about. Don’t read the comments if they raise your blood pressure this way, we’re anonymous fools on the Internet, don’t sweat it.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        What is more ridiculous is someone getting her panties in a wad over a thread on a gossip blog.

      • Anne says:

        people complain & “bitch” about the principles behind things – principles they identify with and principles that are important to them. it’s an inevitable process and celeb stories are an easy, low pressure way to do that.

  11. Leaflet says:

    Imo, this is hardly a complaint. She didn’t really go off on the media too much. I don’t think anyone completely knows everything she’s experiencing while going to work pregnant. The media and paparazzi can be very mean to celebs when they have encounters with them, and they also pry a lot. I remember seeing TMZ getting footage of Paul Walker when he was alive. They started trolling him, so he could say something mean because they were asking him how many sequels of ‘Fast and Furious’ were they going to make and how long are they going to keep doing essentially the same film over and over again. It was more than one TMZ guy asking him questions from behind the camera, and the pap guy said: “What are you guys going to make next, Fast and Furious the geriatrics edition?” I was actually upset by that because the franchise was the guy’s bread and butter. I felt like they weren’t the ones putting food on his and his daughters table. And even though I don’t agree with the nasty things that Jonah Hill and Alec Baldwin have said to the paparazzi while being papped, I do realize that the paparazzi can be completely disgusting people that say and do nasty things to celebrities and only catch the celeb’s reaction to it and try to spin the story as if it was one-way vitriol. For once, I’d like a celeb to secretly record the things these paparazzi do sometimes to elicit such reactions from these people. I’m not going to be upset because Zoe’s human. On the other hand, Zoe needs to figure out who blabbed her business because, obviously, their not her or Preggo’s real friend( The “friend” could be hers or her husbands), but she does need to deal with it quickly. It has to be hard in many ways being a celeb because sometimes it may be really hard sometimes to really figure out that someone isn’t your real friend until it’s too late. Yeah, but Zoe’s just human just like everyone else and deserves to be angry sometimes. Just like any other working pregnant mom-to-be, she’s gotta to go to work. She just has to take a breather and not allow the people at the job to upset her.

    • NerdMomma says:

      Lovely comment, Leaflet, and well said

      • Leaflet says:

        Yeah, sometimes the paparazzi can take ‘freedom of press’ too far, which is what actually killed Princess Diana and puts lots of lives of the “commoners” in jeopardy when they chase celebs for photos in cars. I think this 180 degree view can make anyone upset but after seeing it from a 360 degree angle, from the Paul Walker encounter, I’ve learned to cut these celebrities some slack. After all, We are all only human.

      • FingerBinger says:

        A drunk driver is what actually killed Princess Diana.

        @ Finger Binger,
        All things in proper perspective, a drunk driver in a hazardous situation bought on by the paparazzi is what killed Diana.

      • Artemis says:

        This history revisionism! Diana invited the paparazzi into her life. I wish people would read a book on her life because her death isn’t just a case of ‘omg the press killed her!’. No they weren’t innocent and they did endanger her life but there are at least 2 other factors that contributed to her death. This topic has been beaten to death on CB every time posters want to pin the blame solely on the press and defending these ‘poor celebs’.

        I also find it extremely funny that the worst examples are being put forth as a defense yet we don’t talk about all the other celebs who seem to manage just fine under the same amount of pap stress! Or all the famous people who are barely papped in the first place (the Jolie-Pitts are an excellent examples of all these points). Or all the celebs who perfectly understand that it’s a necessary symbiotic relationship. After all, can we talk about Diana’s image without acknowledging that she used the media to create it in the first place??? Can we talk about the harassment of Katie Holmes and her daughter without acknowledging the protection it gave her AND created this super powerful image of the doting mom and thereby trumping Cruise and a cult!? Can we talk about Paul Walker’s ‘harassment’ without acknowledging the fact that this man’s only job was to act in a dumb film that raked in millions and the paparazzi probably being the only ‘bad’ thing in his life? That’s real perspective.

        And don’t even get me started on Garner and Berry who used the paps to their advantage but dare to sit in a court pretending they don’t.

      • Leaflet says:

        @ Artemis,
        I love Jolie too but let’s not be dismissive of her drug infused past, please. I’m pretty sure the media contributed to her past drug addiction. Thankfully she is over that. Also, Brad Pitt admitted to being on and abusing drugs. If you’re going to discredit my defense of Zoe’s behavior then it’s best not to use the Jolie-Pitts. Maybe at a time in their past they relied on a drug addiction to help them cope with a lot of the bull crap that comes with the job. Please understand that I am not dissing the Jolie -Pitts in any way, everyone deals with their issues their way. No one is perfect. Then again, we shouldn’t demonize others for being human either.
        Did Princess Diana choose a very public office when she married her ex-husband? Yes. Has she solicited press from the paparazzi to shed light and bring awareness to her charitable work, and causes and to perhaps do a little self promoting in the process? Yes, but it still doesn’t give the papps a right to chase the car she was riding in, now is there? Blaming Diana’s death on her solely because she invited the media to her event is a pretty limited way of seeing things. Again, all things in proper perspective. That’s purely victim blaming. It’s sort of like blaming a rape victim for wearing a low cut dress because that has to mean she was asking for it, right?

      • Bridget says:

        No, it is NOT the same thing as saying that a woman is asking to be raped if she wears something low cut, and you should be ashamed of yourself for making that comparison.

        Ultimately, Princess Diana died because she got into a car driven by a drunk driver and didn’t put on a seat belt. The paparazzi chasing them may have contributed, but it’s been established that she would have likely survived the crash if she’d have worn her belt, or if the French ambulance had immediately taken them to the hospital.

      • Artemis says:


        She started using drugs and self-harming when she was in her early 20s though as a struggling actress mainly because she didn’t find meaning in her life and found herself unhappy despite later successes. As per her own words. Her peak of her drug use was also before Tomb Raider/Maddox and she wasn’t nearly as papped so much back then as now. So she was able to kick the habit when the pap attention started to increase actually. Kinda negates your point that the media is to blame. Same for Pitt, his issues were more within himself (not finding any real purpose in life).

        The fact that you think it was a ‘little’ self promotion tells me you don’t know half of it. Fact is that Diana actively went to the press and aired her dirty laundry. She wasn’t protected by the RF anymore because she went THERE herself. That was her choice. She tried to tread the fine line between serious media for her charities etc and trash media (e.g. interviews about RF, photo-ops etc etc).

        And I’m not even going into detail because all of this has been rehashed over and over again. Furthermore, it’s appalling how people dismiss the DRUNK driver in favour for bashing the ‘real’ evil: media. He could have killed other people but because paps were involved and he crashed (speeding + drinking can cause that apparently), we should totally not talk about their responsibilities? The crash was to blame on many factors.

        EDIT to add: Also agree with Bridget. Too tired for this bull.

    • andypandy says:

      I really don’t care for Zoes response however Im amazed at the support the paps get here on this site overall. l don’t doubt that there are some Celebs who do call them but if you ever been to some parts of LA even at the airport you see how paps behave like vultures. Many of them have paid informants at hotels airports restaurants etc and that’s how they know celebs whereabouts plus if you have kids in school that’s a no brainer theres a daily routine of pick up drop off that they can follow to pap you and your kids
      I mean are people here even aware that paps called Suri Cruise ..a child A B1TCH ?/ and that Nayla Halles daughter was asked by one ” how does it feel to never ever see your dad Again ?? all just to get a rise out of their parents. They Also Scream out the childrens names to get attention
      Seriously Scum of the earth

      • Leaflet says:

        Precisely. I didn’t know that they did those disgusting things to the kids. I remember J.K Rowling was upset because a paparazzi got so close to her youngest son while he was in school that the paparazzi actually put a letter in her son’s BACKPACK! How creepy. People were actually angry at J.K. Rowling because she struck back by mentioning the horrible incident during a press conference. That is her last child only son as well. I can’t even begin to imagine what I would’ve done in response to that. I would have went a hell of a lot further than she did by saying some pretty disgusting things to them, I know that. What Zoe did here was pretty tame. I also remember when the paparazzi crowded Catherine Zeta Jones after Douglass went into the hospital, snapping pictures while asking her if she was preparing herself and her kids for Douglass’ funeral. I mean this was a time when he was going through his rounds of chemotherapy and the press was printing stories about Douglass being on the brink of death. It actually bought tears to my eyes for her because she began breaking down mentally in front of the cameras as she collapsed against the wall covering both of her ears. Recounting it kind makes me tear up because she didn’t know which direction to go to escape it all. They physically TRAPPED this poor woman, who had young kids to care for, by surrounding her with cameras while saying the most horrible outcomes of her very fragile husband’s life saving medical procedure.
        I try to put myself in other’s (good people) shoes because no amount of money is cause for this sort bullying and abrasive treatment towards another human being.

      • Artemis says:

        How does any of this relate to Zoe Saldana promoting a blockbuster during an international press tour? She wasn’t hounded by paparazzi, people had eyes and reported what they saw. End of. Or do you think that people wouldn’t have noticed a belly on a woman known for being ultra thin? You think it’s the media that gave it away? 😀

        Plus people seem to forget that she has said in the past that she wants a big family so it’s not like she’s above discussing these type of things. She’s acting like a special snowflake and people defending her through unrelated actual dangerous/damaging physical situations with paparazzi are only justifying her Special Snowflake Syndrome. Her and Mila Kunis need to sit together and contemplate their life choices.

      • FingerBinger says:

        @Artemis I kind of agree with you. She’s not being harassed or chased by the paparazzi. Zoe doesn’t like the speculation surrounding her pregnancy,which I get,but it still isn’t harassment.

      • Leaflet says:

        Are we not talking about a celebrity whose privacy was invaded, and she spoke out about it??? This is VERY relevant to the said situation because it shows how far the paparazzi go to get info for there stories, like the time it was reported that a paparazzi went into Brittney Spears’ large, industrial trash can to fetch out her pregnancy test. Like I said before, The media sometimes goes to disgusting lengths to make a story. Not the best example because Brittney Spears has fame whored in the past but whatever. Still, how do we know that the information about her having twins is all Zoe is referring to??? It can’t be about the median finding out she is pregnant. Putting two and two together, she knows she is visibly pregnant– she has to wear a maternity dress to comfortably cover her belly, and her stomach is too far out there to hide. I’m pretty sure she didn’t care about them knowing she was pregnant because she knows her delicate condition is obvious, so it has to be something more to it than what is listed in this article. In the end, my point is that a lot of crap goes on behind the scenes that escalates up to a celebrity going off on the press. I’m judgmental of celebs when their nasty to their fans but not to the media because I know what’s up. 🙂

      • Leaflet says:

        @ Artemis,
        Also regarding your above statement,
        Sorry, but the attack on Paul Walker was pathetic in the above case you stated. Paul Walker only spoke good things about the film. To counter that, one could argue that commoners go to the same boring ass job everyday, therefore they have no right to complain when some employee that is not even in their department harasses them about when they were going to retire. We could also argue that the paparazzi pull bull crap stunts everyday, so they shouldn’t get mad when the celebs get mad and break their cameras or beat their @ss’s. See how this works? If the paparazzi give the celebs hell on their jobs, celebs have the right to dish the same bull crap back.

      • Nomaden says:

        I get a feeling some people commenting here work for the media or something because there is no way one would justify the paps and the media that speculate about people’s deaths and misery.
        You think they will lose sleep or money over Zoe’s complain? she just gave them one more pretext to make articles and promote their idiotic gossip sites.

        we care more about the media than real people who are just human like the rest of us. I’d really love to see how some people here who are complaining about Zoe complaining would react if they were pregnant or sick and the media had zero fucking respect for them. I’d love to see THEN if they will complain or thank them for talking about them.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        ITA. The paps are f*cking vile. I’m surprised that people around here consistently take their side.

      • Leaflet says:

        @ Bridget,
        I’m sorry if that the comparison regarding Princess Diana’s death was offensive to you, but I am not ashamed of myself because I don’t believe it was a bad comparison. A great woman, who was also a mother and two men died because the paparazzi chased their car. Also, I’m pretty sure that Diana would have worn a seat belt had she known what was about to occur. Yes, that simple mistake contributed to costing her her life, but then again, we all make mistakes because we are human. Again, had the paparazzi not chased them in that car the accident probably would have never occurred. You guys are talking all around the issue of the paparazzi overstepping their boundaries, willing to place blame only on the celebrities instead of seeing this issue full circle. This is ridiculous.

      • Artemis says:


        Are we not talking about a celebrity whose privacy was invaded, and she spoke out about it???

        One, her friend actually confirmed the pregnancy so why not complain about the fact that her friends aren’t loyal? Two, again, would people not have known about the pregnancy when she is wearing clothes that highlight her belly? Are we really going to act naive and pretend we don’t talk about ‘baby bumps’ with celebs who don’t even have half the belly that Saldana is having now??? Yet now that the press does it (based on the friend source + their friggin’ eyes!) it’s all of a sudden ‘invasion of privacy’. LOL. Many celebs were layered clothing/dresses to hide a pregnancy but Saldana is going to complain when her clothes REVEAL a bigger stomach?

        Do tell, what was invaded? Did they search through her trash? Hound her with questions before the premiere? What were the disgusting lengths in the case of Saldana because I’m pretty sure nobody is checking for her like they do with other celebs you mentioned.

        To counter that, one could argue that commoners go to the same boring ass job everyday, therefore they have no right to complain when some employee that is not even in their department harasses them about when they were going to retire.

        You mean the kind of job that they have to perform all year round until they’re 60+ and allows them to take care of their family and pay off bills/tuition fees/mortgages etc and maybe allows them for a few weeks holiday a year vs. Walker’s 2-3 month/year job based on his looks and limited skills that allows him to not work for the rest of his life if he would have choosen so? Again: LOL.

      • Leaflet says:

        @ Artemis,
        With all do respect dear if you’re tired of the bull then drop it. Obviously we don’t see things the same way, so no need with the back and forth. It’s would be remiss to just hold a celebrity accountable for their bad reactions to the things the paparazzi do and not hot hold the paparazzi to a greater accountability for provoking these celebs. Like I said in the portion of MY comment, I believe that the paparazzi need to be held accountable for the drastic measures and bull crap they pull just to get a story, and nothings going to change that.

      • Artemis says:

        Sorry Leaflet but if you’re going to give examples about how Saldana’s privacy is invaded by continuously talking about OTHER celebs’ experiences then you are deflecting because you know that you can’t give a decent example for Saldana herself. What would you call that if not bull?

        Again, WE are on a GOSSIP site. Should you be held accountable too since there is interest for the work of the paps?

        Funny thing is, I don’t disagree with you entirely. Paps ARE mostly vile but I’m not going to sit here and pretend that I don’t enjoy gossip and drama which is what they provide. Also all the examples you’ve given are completely valid…if we would actually be on a thread of said celebrities. Paps (like this case) get a lot of stories without harassment (through tips of ahum, ‘sources’ or celebs who obviously crave attention) so what privacy is invaded now?

        And consider this, even if the paps would be super nice and accommodating etc, they would still report/make up stories about other people’s lives thus they still would be invading other people’s privacy/personal space! Either way, you would still be here and reading gossip.

      • Leaflet says:

        @ Artemis,
        I believe I stated earlier that I don’t believe that Zoe is angry because the paparazzi found out she was pregnant, clearly she didn’t care about that because she wore a beautiful maternity dress to the premier. I also stated that I believe that there is more to the story than what the media is portraying her tweet to have been about. You stated that she isn’t being harassed by the paparazzi. Are you Zoe Saldanna? Are you with Zoe Saldanna 24 hours a day to know whether the paparazzi are harassing her or not? If not, then you don’t know whether she’s being harassed or not. I spoke about the harassment instances in regards to what she may be experiencing based on what other celebs have experienced. I also stated above in my very first comment that Zoe needs to locate the leak in her camp whether it be a friend of hers or her husbands. Heck, for all we know it could be someone that works for them and is trying to profit at the expense of their privacy. The article never stated who it was that actually spilled the beans. I also repeatedly stated that Zoe is human and, and that the whole point of my comments were to say that the paparazzi can be despicable people at times, and that we don’t completely know what’s going on, so I’m not going to judge.
        Regarding you’re Paul Walker comment about him not having to work a regular job, you’re essentially stating that he SHOULD be bullied by the media because he A) doesn’t receive lower wages like the average man, and B) because he stuck with the same profitable movie series that provided him more consistent stable employment, and you’re tired of it and feel he should do something else. Let’s just respectively agree to disagree, because at this point, you’re just trolling, k. Anyways, have a nice day. 🙂

      • Algernon says:


        I don’t take the paparazzi’s side, but I also think celebrities can take steps to lower their profiles. If you live in LA, you know where they hang out and congregate, you know where they’re likely to be, and it’s not *that* hard to avoid them. The paparazzi shouldn’t yell at people and/or their kids and they shouldn’t be engaging in hi-speed chases on the roads (that is so scary up in the hills, especially). But celebs, if they’re serious about their privacy not being a commodity, shouldn’t, say, take their kids to that one pumpkin patch where the paps set up camp every fall. It drives me crazy when I see celebs complaining about their privacy and yet they’re frequently photographed in paparazzi hot spots. They *know* they are there, they *know* they will very likely be photographed, but they go anyway and then turn around and complain. It’s trying to have your cake and eat it , too.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      Dealing with the media is part of the job, even aggressive paparazzi. I don’t support TMZ or any tabloid but I also don’t accept the poor celebrity, evil media storyline. You’re talking about two parts of the same machine, there is no celebrity without media, and everyone in the business participates. Don’t like it? Get out of the business because it’s not going to change or go away.

      • Leaflet says:

        Celebrity and press go hand in hand, yes, but the paparazzi don’t have to go to despicable lengths to do their jobs. I guarantee you that if the press didn’t harass and dehumanize celebs, celebs would be more willing to share news with them. And the paparazzi most certainly do not have to harass and chase celebs in order to make up crazy rumors about them. Whenever the media writes a story, they always use the phrase “a source close to” whomever their speaking on. Heck, I can make up stories about a celebrity and then say ” a source” close to so and so said etc., without ever leaving my chair and people will still read my material regardless. Also, I have never seen Zoe fame whore ever. I’ve seen celebs like Elsa Pataky fame whore but not Zoe. I don’t think to myself “poor celeb” when I see the fame whoring celebs, but I do when I see celebs like Zoe that don’t fame whore. In the end, celebs are not caged animals that should be treated like they live in a zoo. All in all, you don’t have to agree with me, but I sure will call it as I see it. And I see that the paparazzi that go to extremes like this as the aggressors and so the next time one of the paps get their ass beat or their cameras broke, they need not to complain about it in the press. I fully support Zoe on her retaliation towards the media.

  12. Anon33 says:

    She is quite obviously larger in the tummy area. So I guess she would have preferred the whole “Zoe Saldana stress eating-packs on the pounds” type of speculation? Because it was gong to be one of those. The bump is obvious.

  13. M.A.F. says:

    Says the chick on Twitter. Who she should be upset w/are the “sources” who leaked the information to the media. The “sources” are always from the celebrities camp. I can understand wanting to wait on the announcement, to make sure one is further along, but look at your own camp before getting mad at the media.

  14. Nicolette says:

    Maybe you chose the wrong profession. You know, one that puts you in the public eye, one that attracts the media. Just go away, problem solved. Doubt anyone will miss you.

  15. Brittany says:

    So she is mad that people have eyes and can CLEARLY see she is pregnant? This lady needs to get over herself. There are a ton of celebrities that have stayed out of the spotlight while pregnant. She could learn a few things from them.

    • Becks says:

      IKR? It’s so obvious that she is pregnant! Why get all bitchy towards the media? I don’t understand. Shouldn’t she figure out who is the person leaking the information?

    • Nomaden says:

      dumb. she’s clearly mad about the twins news and e!news stating they have all the details and she’s 3 months. That’s is invading her privacy. Don’t tell me they can know that by watching her pictures alone. Stop defending the media and acting like she should thank them.

      • Brittany says:

        I’m not defending the media per say. In a way I am defending myself. We all saw the pictures. She is clearly pregnant. We aren’t stupid, we have eyes. I think as a celebrity she should be used to ‘bump watch’ stories. It just goes along with the territory. And like others have said look at Kerry Washington! Laura Linney, countless others who were pregnant and were able to stay out of the limelight. She went onto the red carpet in a dress that did nothing but accentuate her belly. I even smiled when I saw the picture because I thought it was a cute way to ‘reveal’ she is pregnant. Until I saw her tweet. Get over yourself, Zoe.

      • bluhare says:

        Quit calling people dumb. Attack what they say not who they are.

        I was hoping for a good discussion here today. Unfortunately I did not find it.

  16. dorothy says:

    You are most welcome! A certain lack of privacy comes with the job. You make millions because you have fans and people that purchase movie tickets to see you – get over it and yourself.

  17. Tania says:

    I think I get that she wants some sort of privacy at such an early time. People show sooner with twins so we don’t know how far along she is. That said, if she really wanted privacy she should have hidden the bump for her promotional stuff. There are lots of dresses that can hide a small bump!

  18. Liberty says:

    Look can we just lay off of her for a minute! I think Zoe is right in this case. Yes celebrities do give up most of their privacy when it comes to this profession, but when it comes to certain things like children or pregnancy people need to back off and stop speculating. As for her staying out of the spotlight well she can’t for now. Why? Because she has a job to do. Making this movie and promting this movie is her job. With her being a main character and not being heavily pregnant Marvel and Zoe probably agreeed that she could promote the movie. She knows the game but can we please leave pregnant women alone?! Yes she probably knows we have eyes but if Zoe hasn’t acknowledged her pregnancy then why are we talking about it? I also believe if Zoe wasn’t a main character or something than she she wouldn’t be promoting this movie, let alone fly(which must be uncomfortable) to all of these places while being pregnant with twins. But unfortunately if your any working woman who’s pregnant you still (in most cases) got a job to do and you don’t get to sit down or relax.

    • Tifygodess24 says:

      Have you ever gossiped or talked about a friend, some one at work, a stranger etc? It’s the same thing except she has a larger amount of people doing it. It’s human nature to talk about things you see , so why would this be an different? If she was the cashier down the street at the grocery store and had a baby bump many would assume she was pregnant as well and im sure some would even ask her about it. Zoe knew when she got into this type of arena they are going to talk about everything , pregnancy included.

    • T.C. says:

      When you sign on the dotted line to be a part of a blockbuster Marvel movie you can’t really expect privacy at a public premiere. All eyes are on you. If you lose massive weight or gain noticeable weight it will be noted and talked about. Zoe wore clothes that specifically emphasized her pregnant belly. She didn’t even attempt to hide it. If you are a no body walking down the street looking pregnant strangers will notice and talk about you or even stop and ask if you are expecting.

      However maybe she is talking about the leak regarding having twins in which case I understand because THAT is private. You can get that only from medical files or family members.

    • Marianne says:

      Actually, she could sit out on promotion, if she really wanted. I mean Eva Mendes never showed up to Cannes to promote Lost River, Scarlett Johansson didn’t show up to Comic Con to promote Avengers 2. Heck, I dont think she did any promotion for Lucy.

      Its not just pregnant celebs either. Jim Carrey didn’t do promotion for Kick-Ass 2 for example. If she really wanted out, Im sure she could get out of it. She’s choosing to do this.

      Not that Im taking sides with the media or anything.

    • Leaflet says:

      I totally agree. I think that people are confused and think that Zoe is angry because the media noticed that she was pregnant at the premier. I highly doubt that. Zoe knows that her belly is noticeably much rounder and bigger and can reasonably assume that she is pregnant. She wore a maternity dress for goodness sakes because she knows that she has to appropriately cover her bump. I think that she may be angry because they found out about that it was a multiple birth and also about how far along she is. Also, Zoe and Marco need to find out who leaked their information. This person could be a “friend” of hers or Marco’s. Heck, it could also be someone that their not close to, someone that works for them, like the housekeeper, the chef, anyone that is around them close enough to overhear their conversations or is able to pick up their sensitive medical documents to briefly read them. Whoever this person was aired their sensitive information to the press at their expense, all for a payday. Sad. Sometimes it’s hard to figure out who is trustworthy and who isn’t. I understand why she is angry, and she has the right to tell the press off. Good for you Zoe.

  19. lucy2 says:

    I greatly dislike the tabloids speculating about pregnancies, especially early on. But with Zoe, the fairly good sized bump was clearly visible as she was on a red carpet. In front of the media.

    If she’s upset they’re reporting twins, she needs to shut down whoever is passing along her info. But if it’s just that the news she’s pregnant is out, sorry, at some point it’s news you can’t hide unless you stay home 24/7.

    Plus she’s note exactly shy – she’s talked about her sex life publicly for some time now.

    • Jen2 says:

      I have to agree here. Tabloids and their obsession with pregnancy’s of celebrities is beyond annoying (actually all tabloid silliness is annoying, but that is another story). BUT, she wore that dress with the white arrow pointing straight to her abdomen like it was a map saying X marks the spot. If she wanted to be any more obvious, it could have just been a blinking light with Look at my oversized abdomen. She could have had the arrow black and it would not have stood out. She was in a public place, at a public event having her photo taken. If she wanted to wait, and I understand if she wanted to, she could have sat out the press tour. There are options to keeping things quiet and she did not take any of them. I don’t see the invasion of privacy.

    • Liv says:

      You know, I’m totally with people like Kerry Washington or Sandra Bullock who can keep their private life private without insulting other people or the media in general. Of course paps can be disgusting and of course the media is sometimes crossing lines – but if Zoe wants to have privacy then she has to act accordingly. It’s possible.

  20. Fan says:

    What’s wrong with her? She is a movie star. She should be glad that people are still talking about her. I think she is still sending signal to her x.

  21. andypandy says:

    That White panty liner Dress though WTF ??
    I actually think her stylist secretly hates her or is trolling her and Zoe doesn’t even realize it

  22. Lori says:

    Perhaps more should go the Eva Mendez route. No one would have really noticed if Zoe had skippes the premeire.

    • andypandy says:

      Zoe is full of it but one can hardly compare Eva Mendez not showing up for a premier in which she had a bit part in her boyfriends disaster movie (at a film festival )to a major industry movie premier in which Zoe has a lead role
      Till the pregnancy leak people hardly noticed that Eva had been MIA for 6mths considering she was also MIA for 5/6 years before she started dating Ryan ,,,LOL

    • Nomaden says:

      easy for Eva Mendez to hid herself when no one cares about her and when she isn’t working and doesn’t need to promote stuff by contract. They’d care about that pregnancy if the one expecting was Ryan Gosling.

    • Artemis says:

      Mendes is still in hiding and people were all over the rumours, not giving a damn about ‘privacy’ but focusing on calling it a band-aid baby and tearing her apart for daring to be in a sexual relationship with Gosling. Now we have people trying to pretend that Saldana isn’t obviously in public with a big pregnancy belly. Her case is ‘invasion of privacy all of a sudden’.

  23. Kemper says:

    Would it be invading her privacy to know where she got shoes? I love love love them!

  24. word says:

    I don’t know…I really can’t fee too sorry for these rich celebs who get paid millions to be in movies…ummm you’re a movie star, you have fans, we live in a time of paps and twitter, etc. Either you learn to deal with it or you leave the movie business and work a regular 9 to 5 job with A LOT of privacy and LITTLE money. You choose Zoe !

  25. Bridget says:

    She showed up to the premiere of her blockbuster comic book movie, in a dress that emphasized her bump (which looks to be a solid 4 months along) and is complaining that her privacy was invaded? It’s fine if she doesn’t want to discuss it or share details, but how is this invading her privacy?

  26. RobN says:

    And I’ve officially had enough of her. Not enough attention and it’s racism, too much attention and it’s an invasion of her privacy.

    People want the money and attention and then at some point they decide they should just be able to have the money. Doesn’t work that way. She can go away; some other chick can play girlfriend of the lead and nobody will ever notice the difference.

    • Jaded says:

      I agree – she’s just never happy with anything and seems to have a chip on her shoulder the size of a boulder. It seems like the huge stars, i.e. Meryl Streep, Sandra Bullock, Hugh Jackman, etc. etc. are unfailingly polite and never badmouth the press while the lesser mortals like Saldana do nothing but b*tch and complain and feel sooooo put upon. She needs to get over herself and deflate her fat ego.

  27. Nell Graham says:

    She needs to shut up. If she had stayed as incognito as Eva Mendes and kept out of the spotlight, I’d say she was justifiably mad. But sweetheart, you showed up to promote your movie visibly pregnant. If she contractually obligated to be there she needed to have already made her peace with her pregnancy coming out in such a public way. Did she expect people to not notice or comment? This truly makes her come across as unrealistic and lacking in any sort of graces. I agree with those above that they only person she should be angry with or feel betrayed by is the person who talked about her carrying twins…if that’s even true.

  28. Nomaden says:

    It doesn’t take a genius to understand that she’s angry because of the twins and ‘she’s 3 months’ speculations. She made that post over twitter only when those popped up and she also was probably harassed by paps at the GOTG premiere where she was just supposed to talk about her character in the movie not her pregnancy she hasn’t even announced yet.
    Give me a break people. You can tell she’s pregnant but not other details like her expecting twins or that she’s 3 months. Stop defending the media, they do what they are doing and won’t lose their sleep over her comment. How many celebrities blasted the media for this stuff? Some sue them and they win. Yet, Zoe cannot even make one comment?
    It’s funny that so many people on the internet are calling her a ‘bitch’ and saying she should get over it and stop complaining. You’re all complaining about her more than she herself did about this shit. You’re saying that you all have more a right to your ‘feelings’ and being annoyed with a stranger on the internet than this person has the right to express her feelings over a matter that actually touches her personally. This world is sick.

      Thank you Nomaden. Someone else actually gets it. I don’t know why people think she is mad because the media and everyone else noticed that she was pregnant. How absurd? Lol. Clearly she didn’t want the media to announce all of the additional information about the pregnancy like the multiple fetuses in her womb and how far along she is. It could be other stuff that also happened behind the scenes as well that the media may be doing to her that we don’t know about that caused her to tweet this. I think that most of these people on this site just don’t like her just like they don’t like GOOP and are going to make irrational and unreasonable assumptions about her without even trying to dig deeper to put two and two together to make four, lol. Sad.

    • Peaches says:

      I agree with what you’re saying but people are gonna say what they’re gonna say, you’re taking this very personal based on the fact that you’ve commented numerous times on numerous threads. I don’t understand why you are so mad at people gossiping on a gossip website. And this is coming from someone who agrees with you.

      • Leaflet says:

        I’m not quite sure whether that comment is for Nomandy or me? In case it’s for me, I frequent celebitchy like any other commenter. I know that this is a gossip site, and that’s why I come because I like the gossip. I like Zoe, so I comment on her because she’s one of my favorite celebs. I comment on other threads as well. On me taking this personally, no I just think it odd when another commenter disagrees with my comment in more of a snarky or flippant way. Then wants to keep debating the issue with me. It’s like I know that person can disagree without being totally dismissive and rude at the point I made. Nomaden commented in a nice way in under my comment, so I came down to sort of agree with her to let her know that I saw her up thread. I comment on Tom Hiddleston threads all the time. He’s like my favorite celeb. Some things other commenter’s disagree with me about over there too, but they do so in a funny or nice way. I actually look at all of the threads. Some I want to comment on, so I do. On others, if I don’t have anything to say about it I won’t, just like any other commenter here. Yeah, I like Zoe but I don’t take any of this to heart because we’re not related. 🙂

      • Madgdeline says:

        the ones hating on Zoe Saldana for this and calling her names are taking it personally too, then.
        ‘people are gonna say what they’re gonna say’ yet, you think it’s more legit for ppl to have fun hating a celebrity for a silly comment she made over her twitter blog, than it is for someone to disagree with the haters because they understand her point instead, and maybe relate to her need to protect her unborn child like every pregnant woman does.

      • Peaches says:

        Nah, if they’re are taking it personally, they need to calm down too. But nomaden, keeps calling people dumb for their thoughts, I can disagree with people all day long, but I’d never insult their intelligence unless I was so emotionally invested in the topic that it came out in the heat of the moment. Calling people dumb for not realizing what she meant (as if nomaden could know for a fact what she meant) it’s uncalled for. I haven’t caught anyone else leaving so many comments in so many other threads but nomaden. But I could’ve missed. If there’s someone else saying “you’re dumb, she’s a totally calls the paps, how can u not see that?” Then they need calm down too.

  29. Deedee says:

    Her husband looks like Jared leto to me and she looks gorgeous in the blue dress, but i wish it wasnt a gown length, but slightly above the knee.

  30. Lydia Says says:

    Whether it’s obvious or not that she’s pregnant , Zoe has the right to announce her pregnancy to the world whenever she feels like it. Just because she’s a public figure that does not mean that she does not have the right to her privacy. I never understand some people’s obsession with celebrity lives.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      No one disputes that’s it’s her right to announce it at a time of her choosing but only an idiot would expect it to go unnoticed at the red carpet premiere of a major summer movie. I have zero interest in her but, come on, she’s obviously pregnant and somehow the media is the bad guy for reporting on it? She’s needs to take a seat and chill out. She checked her right to complain at the limo door when she stepped out and strolled that red carpet.

  31. AlmondJoy says:

    Goodness. Zoe has the right to complain about privacy just like any other celeb. Not sure why we’re up in arms here, lol.

  32. Mom2Be says:

    Oui. I’m pregnant, newly so and I accepted a dinner invitations out with friends/husbands colleagues the other evening. Because I chose not to drink (heaven forbid) everyone assumed I was pregnant. Even though I denied it and made it VERY CLEAR that the subject was off the table, they continued to hard on about it over 50 times. I’ve never left a dinner so angry and upset. What should be a happy moment for my husband and I, has turned into a terribly stressful and anxious one for me because I don’t want to socialize with anyone. We live in a VERY VERY small community so that basically means we never go out to dinner or have anyone over until I’m ready to announce it.

    Basically, I feel Zoe’s pain. Anything could happen and if it were, having to rehash the story to everyone would be miserable and heartbreaking.

    End of rant. My hormones apologize.

    • Peaches says:

      Girl, Idk who those people are but you need to drop em! That is extremely rude and unless they apologize, you have the right to never talk to them again. How do people not understand pregnancies are a delicate subject!?

  33. Ginger says:

    I’m not saying she doesn’t have the right to be pissed but her anger should be at whoever leaked the information in the first place not at the media speculation. She can always make an official announcement when she feels like it if it’s true. And if she doesn’t then don’t comment at all. If she really wanted to hide it that badly go the route of Eva Mendes. But I will say that I am probably a bit biased since I don’t particularly care for Zoe and her general pissy attitude at everything.

  34. Olga says:

    Walesa? Srsly?

  35. PoliteTeaSipper says:

    Okay Zoe, if that’s how you feel then don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

  36. NewGirl says:

    This is just my opinion, but maybe it was her PR that leaked it out and this whole twitter statement was written for publicity. I think that if she wanted to hide like Eva Mendez she could have. Again this is just an opinion…so who knows

  37. Algernon says:

    I don’t care about babies, let alone celebrity babies, and I find the whole famous-baby component of celebrity gross and invasive. So I’m totally Team Zoe on that respect. If she chooses not to make her pregnancy and/or her child a commodity, then that’s her business and I’m fine staying out of it. What confuses me, though, is her exact target with her tweet. At first glance, it seems like she’s condemning everyone who has simply noticed that she’s pregnant. I haven’t read the reports, but if there are more personal, intimate details out there, then she needs to handle her sh-t, find the leak and plug it. And maybe have her lawyer send a letter to the media outlets reporting on personal details (assuming she didn’t tacitly okay the info leak through a “friend”, which, to be fair, does not seem to be the case). But if she’s upset at outlets labeling a premiere photo, “Pregnant Zoe Saldana steps out…” then she maybe needs to get over it. She’s famous, she’s on a promotional tour, she’s visibly pregnant–people will notice and comment. I’m just not clear on what part of this she’s mad at. At a certain point, she’s right to be mad about her privacy being violated during an emotional time, but there’s also the “you’re famous and on a press tour” part in which people are just going to notice that you’re pregnant.

  38. M says:

    No offense but it had to be someone she knows who leaked the twins story, so sheneeds to find out who. She gave away the pregnancy herself by wearing the tight dress that you can obviously see her pregnant.

    Plus this coming from the same girl who said she had sex in between train cars, or am I mistaking that part. Give me a break

  39. Barbara says:

    Just ignore her and see how she likes that. There are ways to disguise baby bumps, she chose not to, so there you go

  40. Jessica says:

    Zoe had best toughen up if it is twins. When people see you have twins, everything about your private life is their business. I have been asked some of the stupidest questions I’ve ever heard. Go ahead and tell everyone off! News flash: your career really isn’t relevant. That said, her bod is already starting to look fab. I’m sure you can get lots of twin advice from JLo, St. Angie, Sooooookie, Elsa Whatsherface, Kimberly from Melrose, PDiddys babies mama, SJP, Mariah, Pretty Woman, Celine Dion and So forth. Who am I missing?

  41. Jag says:

    I don’t like her. Don’t care that she’s pregnant. Her saying what she did just confirms to me what a jerk she is.

  42. ToodySezHey says:

    It’s clear to me from this article people a) can’t think critically b) can’t read and c) just plain don’t like Zoe.

    What part of “zoe IS NOT mad about people speculating about her being pregnant.(because it’s obvious she can’t hide it) She IS mad about PRIVATE details like her having twins and how far along she is being revealed ( two details which are not immediately obvious to most). ” do you people not understand???? many people with the ” she is a celeb, it goes with the territory ” nonsense

    So in simpler terms: folks speculating about baby bump=cool

    Media leaking intimate details of pregnancy=not cool


    Roger Federer repeatedly fought off rumors that his wife was having twins. But as soon as Mirka got pregnant a second time, it immediately came out she was pregnant with twins. Now part of that was the fact that she has had twins before. But it makes you wonder how people get thus stuff so quickly. Roger whenever asked would either ignore the question or downplay it. A reporter flat out asked him if he was having twins and he said ” if I was I certainly wouldn’t tell you”

    But I guess it’s just different for Zoe

  43. Seapharris7 says:

    I actually laughed out loud when I read her tweet. The quote she opted to use was bland & then she just came across as a pissy hormone filled preggo.

    I don’t like Zoe as an actress at all, but her snapping like that makes her more human to me.

  44. NewGirl says:

    I do think that she is talking about the private details of her possibly having twins and how far along she is. Again just my opinion, but perhaps she should be upset at the “friend” who leaked it to the media.

  45. tekla says:

    Ugh. As a polish girl I’m wondering does she really know who Lech Wałęsa is or did she just need a nice quote on privacy?

  46. wow says:

    Ugh! She is so f&#king annoying!

  47. Meg says:

    while i agree that she should be able to publicize her pregnancy when she’s ready I believe she gave up the right to privacy when she decided to wear some skin tight dresses on her press tour. the floral dress she’s wearing in the photo with this story isn’t very tight but others I’ve seen her wear to other events and interviews leaves nothing to the imagination that she has a baby bump. You can’t wear things that leave little to the imagination and then complain when people speculate about your body.
