Zoe Saldana: Public interest in celebs’ lives is a ‘very ignorant way to see life’

Zoe Saldana

Here are some assorted photos of Zoe Saldana and Marco Perego’s glorious manbun. These pics are all from the past few week, and Zoe is rapidly approaching her third trimester. Maybe she’s already there? Rumor has it that she’s pregnant with twins. The only time Zoe has acknowledged her pregnancy is by gesturing towards her stomach during Marco’s ALS ice bucket challenge.

Zoe’s former Crossroads co-star, Britney Spears, sort of let it slip that Zoe is having twins. Did Zoe tell Brit this? I don’t know if they’re tight. They were recently spotted walking through the NYC airport together, but they may have simply taken the same flight. I feel like Brit read about the twins on TMZ or whatever.

Zoe would still like us to stop invading her privacy. She’s talking about it again:

On curiousity of celebs’ private lives: “That’s a very ignorant way to see life. It’s almost like just because you work in the news world that means your life has to be news as well.”

Leave Zoe alone: “I’m an American, I’m a citizen, I vote, I pay taxes, therefore I have right to my own privacy as much as anybody. What I do as an artist and as a professional has nothing to do with who I am personally and I will never get any of that blended.”

[From NYDN]

She’s an American citizen, y’all. No one can ever hear those words without thinking of Reese Witherspoon, right? Zoe has an abrasive way of speaking, but she’s correct. She deserves privacy. Pregancy is a delicate topic. Buuut. I would bet my favorite candy bar that Zoe will get preachy on mothering topics. Then she’ll talk a lot.

Here’s a video from Zoe’s Instagram. She and Marco pole-danced at Dulles airport this weekend.

    LOL she is downright butthurt that people like her enough to care about her personal situation: Sit Down Girl!

  2. ... says:

    That video is really cute!

  3. Jaderu says:

    She just invaded that poles privacy.

  4. Charlie says:

    Oh shut up. You get millions of dollars for talking in front of a camera. You were old enough to know what you’re getting yourself into, now deal with it.

    • tifygodess24 says:

      Exactly!! I have to ask if her instagram is public because wouldn’t that defeat the purpose of what shes saying? She doesn’t like that people are interested in her personal life but there she is sharing moments of – guess what – her personal life. If she was so worried about it – knowing that shes in the public eye and all , she would put that private and save that for the peasants that she allows to care. Zoe remember its a fine edge sword because without your fans or people interested in your life you are a nobody and in this business you wouldn’t have the job(s) you do.

  5. HH says:

    I’m sure you do pay taxes, Zoe. But do you also accept the freebie swag gift bags? Do you accept free designer clothes? Do you accept the invitations to NYFW and other parties? My point is that you can’t actively use the benefits of a *high-profile* celebrity life, but not want to be high-profile.

    • bammer says:

      +10000000 Such a hypocrite. She also hawks products. Why so sour having made millions on very little talent?

    • FLORC says:

      Fair point HH!

      And have you ever been on those airport terminal transports? for lack of what they’re called atleast.
      They move fast and jerk you around! My 1st thought was i’d be sitting or risk slamming my stomach into the poll at a bad stop.

      She cherry pics her privacy without understanding it’s like a floodgate. You can’t give a little and not expect others to want/assume the same.
      Like Mila in that way.

  6. Ms Trekkie says:

    It’s a contradiction to whine about valuing privacy while maintaining a public instagram account.

  7. littlemissnaughty says:

    Oh, honey. NO. “It’s almost like just because you work in the news world that means your life has to be news as well.” You do not work in news!!! Let’s not confuse news with gossip or a way to see life with a pastime. For the love of everything! Can’t she make her point more eloquently? You work in the entertainment business. Half of it these days is gossip and tabloids. Talk to your fellow moms who sell their pregnancies/children to that half. No, wait. As Kristen and Dax taught us, that’s not the issue at all.

  8. frisbeejada says:

    But is it almost as ignorant as wanting a celebrity lifestyle, and actively chasing and pursuing one for the years and years it takes to achieve it?

  9. MoochieMom says:

    Don’t do a pathetic pole dance and make it public. Crawl back in your hold and shut it.

  10. Tiffany27 says:

    Her husband has glorious hair.

  11. Nene says:

    Come on Zoe, there is always a price to pay for anything in life.
    That’s your’s : Fame = Invasion of privacy.

    On a side note, she and her hubby look so cool together.

  12. Vampi says:

    Zoe…girl..I like you, but..
    Sit yourself down and just count your money!
    If you are so butthurt about what comes along with a PUBLIC life…(you know….a career where you being noticed and talked about, depends on people paying attention to, and giving two shizziz about what you do…) then find a new line of work!
    After the wewe mess today, my eyeroll limit has been reached!
    **I understand that everyone, regardless of occupation deserves privacy…it’s just…these STAHS just need to check it sometimes…you know?**
    We have lives. You are merely ENTERTAINMENT for us. And um….that’s EXACTLY what you signed up for! Trust…we don’t spend that much time thinking about, and revolving our lives around all y’all!
    /end rant

    • Tiffany27 says:

      LMAO @ sit yourself down and count your money.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      The thing is, is that beyond it getting leaked that she’s having twins (that’s what she was mad about, right after it became obvious that she was pregnant–was that the tabloids reported that she was having twins and it was true???), when has her personal life ever REALLY been up for grabs? I think MAYBE there was a little drama when she was with Bradley Cooper. And Bradley Cooper is the only celeb that I know that she’s dated.

  13. RobN says:

    Of course, what she really means is that she would like to control what information gets out, not that she has any actual problem with the publicity itself.

    Officially over her. She’s a niche actress who ought to enjoy it while it lasts.

    • Sofia says:

      If she is so concerned about her private life why post that video or talk about REALLY private matters on interviews? And if she is just like anyone else why not refusing the celebrity perks too? Oh the hypocrisy…

  14. Jackel says:

    I’ve figured it out…Zoe Saldana is the Kanye West of actresses.

  15. Jaded says:

    She’s reached new levels of hypocritical hyperbole. On the one hand she’s actively pursued a career that she KNEW involved a high level of public exposure – that’s what stardom is and fans come with the fame and fortune. On the other hand she constantly lectures and demeans said fans for wanting to follow her and know about her life.

    Honey, shut the f*ck up. You chose this life knowing full well what it entailed and you’re making a very good income from it. Far more famous celebrities are completely gracious and polite to their fans so put up with a few invasions of privacy – and quit biting the hands that feed you.

  16. jiji says:

    “I’m an American, I’m a citizen…therefore I have right to my own privacy”

    If you’re not an American citizen you have less right to privacy?! She could have phrased that better.

  17. Steph says:

    Gross couple. Zoe wants her privacy. No problem love, then go away from the cameras. This girl is soooo over rated. Why do these trolls win parts and not trained actors and actresses from Julliard?

    • maddelina says:

      Their parents have money and fund them until they get a break! You never or rarely see the most talented. They’re the waiters, grocery clerks, hairdressers……

  18. delorb says:

    Love her, but she’s very ditzy with a scoop of new agey. Its always funny to hear celebrities speak about privacy. I think it means they think they’ve made it. One slip down the rung (or list) and they’re back to getting their colon checked on live TV or dancing with other semi-stars. I can’t figure out which is more humiliating.

  19. Annika says:

    Her b!tchiness is the most newsworthy thing about her.

  20. Irene says:

    I’m surprised anyone cares enough about her to be that much of a bother.

  21. Amanda says:

    I guess her schtick will be “f***ing media, stop invading my privacy”. Sweetie, you’re a B-list at best, nobody cares about you and yet you’re photos that look very much staged can be seen every day on JJ or DailyMail. Stop calling paparazzi or stop going places where you know they’ll be. And in the meantime wipe your tears with your dollars that you’ve got by promoting yourself in the media.

  22. Marianne says:

    I agree that she has the right to privacy, but keep in my mind she also puts herself out there. If Angelina and Brad can keep a marriage under wraps, if Eva Mendes can keep her pregnancy (and baby name) under wraps…Im sure Zoe can.

  23. Jeanette says:

    I give her a comments a “Bitch Please”!!!

    Does she really expect us to believe she is so popular that the paps follow her around every other day?
    No. She calls them. Its part of the game..
    The photos garner interest in her and her life..makes people want to see her films. If it werent for the staged photo ops..I would have no clue who she is.

  24. Altariel says:

    A court found that even Jackie Kennedy did not have a right to privacy when stepping outside her apartment building. Paps were free to pap and speculate and gossip when she was out in public. I don’t think paps pitch tents in front of Zoe’s front door, but she’s a public figure too, and has the privilege of being a millionaire because of that. And besides, somehow plenty of stars are able to shield their children, spouses, partners, whoever, from the cameras. She should take some lessons for when her kid(s) arrive, if she’s that concerned.

    • Izzy says:

      EXCELLENT point.

      Also, if Zoe wants her privacy, she should not have picked a career that put her squarely in the public eye. On a movie screen. IN 3-D.

      • Altariel says:

        LOL !!! She can’t stick her sci-fi heroines into our faces any closer than 3D, even if she wanted to!

  25. Mischa Jane says:

    Dear Zoe – you are not that big of a deal.

    Really, does anyone even care about this chick? She’s not really on my gossip radar. I don’t know why she thinks people are just so interested in her or her pregnancy. I wouldn’t have even known she was pregnant if she hadn’t made such a big deal about trying to hide it.

  26. ican'tsnap says:

    Boy she just sounds stupider and stupider every time she speaks. And I even agree with the sentiment! She’s too defensive, and she clearly thinks she’s very smart but she’s just not eloquent.

  27. Aly says:

    God that woman is obnoxious. And sit down girl Meryl Street is an artist, this chick can’t act for her life. She seems to be the only person who takes herself seriously.
