Zoe Saldana: ‘Now that I’m pregnant, I’m kind of itching for sexy compliments’

Zoe Saldana

Here are some photos of Zoe Saldana at The Book of Life premiere. She’s wearing an Altuzarra dress and enjoying it very much. This dress (and the styling) is a great maternity look. Very pretty. Zoe posed it up, waving the skirt around. Look at Marco Perego off on the side, laughing along with his wife. His artwork still makes me squicky, but I’m a fan of his personality. He’ll make a cool dad.

Zoe visited Craig Ferguson last night. She suddenly wants to talk about her pregnancy like crazy. I almost felt like I was invading her privacy by watching this interview. Whatever her reasons for talking are, Zoe is all about spilling pregnancy details. She lets us know when she’s due and all about her food cravings. Zoe also wants the world to tell her how sexy her pregnancy looks. The way she says it is so eye-rollingly pretentious:

When is she due? “I still have a ways to go. We have maybe, I don’t know, eight more weeks or something? Ten more weeks? I feel great.”

She’s ravenous: “I’m hungry all the time. I really am. [Ferguson pulls out a food tray filled with barbeque ribs.] “Oh my god! This is really good! And they’re warm! Would it be really obnoxious if I just grabbed the rib and [chowed down]? I have to say, nothing makes me happier than to see a pregnant woman eat, especially in L.A. I’m just hungry. It feels good. Food just tastes so delicious”

She used to be vegetarian: “For one season, I lost the taste of meat. So I was just having, like, lentils and quinoa. But then there was a bad night where I had a little too much to drink and I ended up at In-N-Out. You trick yourself, working in Hollywood. You trick yourself, going, ‘That burger’s disgusting. That burger’s awful.’ But now that [I’m] pregnant, [I’m] like, ‘I can eat all this together, at the same time. Like, I can have the pickle with the donut, and it would probably be life-changing.'”

Her pregnancy pasttime: “I’ve been watching a lot of crime shows. Murder mysteries. And I’m solving the case at like 2:00 in the morning. Because that’s one of the gifts of being pregnant — sometimes you just can’t sleep … My husband wakes up, and I’m just like, ‘He totally did it.'”

Tell her she’s “sexy”: “People think that they’re not supposed to compliment pregnant women. The best thing a pregnant women can hear is the word ‘sexy.’ It’s like, ‘Oh, you think I’m sexy? Yes! I’m sexy.’ Usually, I’m such an activist for women’s rights and everything. I’m like, ‘Excuse me, do not objectify me,’ or whatever. But now that I’m pregnant, I’m kind of itching for sexy comments, like compliments. Not getting picked up, because my husband will kill you. But like, you know, ‘Your wife is looking really hot.’ We like that.”

Usually, I’m such an activist for women’s rights and everything…” Oh, Zoe. We know what she means. It’s okay. She can be a feminist and still enjoy compliments on her physical appearance. She feels the need to qualify her desires, which is interesting.

Somehow I like Zoe more now that she’s talking about her obsession with crime shows. I watch all those dreadful USA network reruns at the gym. Give me a murder mystery and Chris Meloni’s guns. Uh-huh.

Here’s a video clip of last night’s Craigy Ferg show. Zoe arrives at the 17 minute mark.

    I understand the crime show obsession. I watch Forensic Files all the time. I need to stop tbh.

    • QQ says:

      I CANNOT! like heaven help me if i land on Investigation discovery…. I will be up till 2 am watching and they might even be reruns!!.. In fact that’s tonight, I am gonna go home get on my sweats and mainline Dateline

    • FingerBinger says:

      I love crime shows too. Snapped is one of my favorites

      • Tiffany27 says:

        Snapped and Deadly Women. LOVE them.
        And I watch so many of the damn shows I’ve seen the same story on 2 different shows. SMH.

      • Betty says:

        @Tiffany That happens to me, too. Dateline will cover a story and then 48 Hours will cover it, and my husband will say, “Haven’t we seen this before?” because he’s always itching to change the channel. I just say, “No, it’s not a rerun.” Of it he guesses another show covered the same crime, I tell him that I want a different perspective on it.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      Oh my Lord–you all wonder why I’m like ‘I need TASERS, yippy dogs, and a gun’ whenever I move out. Because all my mom watches is Forensic Files, Cold Cases, The First 48, NCIS, SVU, Stalked, Snapped, I Almost Got Away With It, etc. That’s 90% of what she watches. I’m paranoid.

    • Jaderu says:

      I was addicted but I had to stop watching them. I started having nightmares about my 2 daughters away in college. I was also calling them constantly to make sure they locked their doors. I was so paranoid.

  2. bammer says:

    Pregnancy agrees with her. Her privacy should be invaded more often. She should keep some weight on her. Makes her look more youthful and healthy.

    • MCraw says:

      Agreed. I saw this last night and she was so cute. I was surprised at her candor. The extra weight looks so good on her. Especially her legs.

  3. Ciria says:

    She looks adorable pregnant.

  4. Stef Leppard says:

    I don’t feel like she overshared. At least she didn’t mention her vagina being shredded.

  5. Jess says:

    She looks gorgeous, they seem like a really sweet couple. I’m happy she’s getting to eat without the guilt!

  6. HH says:

    Is that her husband she’s with? The fashion between the both of them is dreadful.

    And why is she still speaking? Feminism doesn’t mean that you don’t want to feel attractive. For the love of all that is holy, make her stop! I’ll even take some more Alamooney. I can bargain.

    • FingerBinger says:

      Yes that’s her husband. He should have at least ironed his (linen?) suit.

    • Natalia says:

      oh chile humanoid who has no sense of humor.
      people like you are the reason why people make fun of ‘feminists’.

  7. Abbott says:

    I’m gonna miss Craigy Ferg.

  8. QQ says:

    These girls NEVER want to invite us to their “privacy” until they give us the full court press about their Cervix and their I -almost pooped myself birth story and their food cravings and whatever else

  9. aims says:

    I understand what she’s saying about wanting to still be desired when you’re pregnant. Even the most healthy pregnancy, it gets a little rough towards the end. Yes you’re making a human being, but you still want to be an individual.

  10. Mzizkrizten says:

    Itching and sexy don’t belong in the same sentence LOL

  11. nicegirl says:

    maybe “fishing” for compliments?

  12. Carrie says:

    Im pregnant too and having a really hard time feeling good about how I look. I know pregnancy is supposed to be a joyous time yadda yadda and I am thrilled to be having a baby but it’s still somewhat scary wondering if you’re still attractive to your partner. My fiancé has done a great job make sure I know he’s fine with my current body so that’s helpful.

  13. Natalia says:

    8 to 10 weeks? I thought she was about to give birth sooner than that! But then, she looks big one moment and not that big the next. For a twin pregnancy she looks great, tough. Lucky woman.

    you know, no need to be still so bitter and sarcastic about her saying that the media invaded her privacy (and don’t be touchy, she wasn’t criticizing your site 😉 ) there is a difference between her choosing to share some informations about her pregnancy with us now and the media stalking her doctor/nurses and friends to find out how many weeks she’s, how many kids she’s having and the sex.. in a moment when she was in the first trimester (that is usually the time where the mother doesn’t like to announce the pregnancy yet, either because of cultural reasons or because they want to be sure that everything is fine first) and didn’t even announce the pregnancy yet, herself. That’s just bad taste.
    I think that when it comes to the health of these people and their kids, they do deserve a tiny bit of respect just like any other person no matter what is their job.

    I love zoe! I’m going to miss craig so much,he’s just so funny.

  15. Dommy Dearest says:

    Not wearing a shower curtain helps get them.

  16. Dorky says:

    She has THE cutest pregnancy style! I love checking out all her outfits. And she seems so happy. Stacy Kiebler also had great pregnancy style.
