Actress Zoe Saldana stuns on the cover of Italy’s Grazia fashion magazine this month. Wearing a Dolce and Gabba Milano t-shirt, the American actress looks as though she fits in just fine on the pages of the Italian fashion magazine. The busy 38-year-old actress looks stunning on the cover, leaving fans to question Zoe Saldana’s age. Looking more like a young woman in her 20’s, the beautiful actress shows age is just a number as she poses in a mini skirt balanced on a chair.

Saldana recently took time out of her busy schedule to enjoy an evening at the Golden Globes award ceremony. The actress stepped out on the red carpet wearing a pale pink and scarlet red silk chiffon Gucci gown with asymmetrical tiered ruffled skirt and blush satin bow. The stunning star accessorized the gown with Bulgari jewelry.

Bringing some controversy to the evening, Saldana was one celebrity who praised Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes speech, which took aim at President-Elect Donald Trump. At the premiere for her new movie Live By Night on Monday night at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, Saldana stated,

“As an American, I really appreciated the advice. She used the most powerful platform she had. Last night, in honor of all the celebrations that were being had, that was her victory, that was her advice, and as an American that was very moving.”

Zoe Saldana rose to fame when she landed a role in the hit movie The Terminal, where she co-starred with Tom Hanks and Catherine Zeta-Jones—another high profile film was Avatar. Zoe Saldana’s Avatar character was the alien hunter Neytiri, which secured her a spot as one of Hollywood’s biggest celebrities. The busy actress has numerous films set to be released this year, including Live By Night, Avatar 2, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Avengers: Infinity War

Zoe Saldana has confirmed reports that she will be reprising her Guardians of the Galaxy character in an upcoming Avengers movie. The star has been saying that she will play Gamora in Avengers: Infinity War, and spoke to MTV about the role, “I don’t know when they’re going to let me see it (script),” she said. “I’m not looking forward to the five hours of green make-up, but every time I arrive on set, I’m so happy and lucky to be there.

The actress also added, “I’m curious to see how they are going to portray us, but the good thing that keeps me relaxed is that these directors (Anthony and Joe Russo) are good. They have a really good pedigree. Their last movie (Captain America: Civil War) was… I liked it. I liked their choices. And everyone that worked with them really had a great experience.

“And (Guardians director) James Gunn is a producer on it, so I know he won’t ever let the integrity of what he’s created for the Guardians ever become compromised. So, I’m at ease. Plus, I love Marvel producers; they’re all great; they all want us to win.”

The original Guardians of the Galaxy cast featured Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Glen Close, and many other leading Hollywood stars. There is no word yet if any of them will appear in the new Avengers film, or if Zoe Saldana will be the only one to be in it. Sources, however, have told Variety that Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage is in early talks for a key role in Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War. He has made no comment.

Look for Avengers: Infinity War to be released in North America May 4, 2018.
