Guardians of the Galaxy actress Zoe Saldana has become one of the top actresses in Hollywood and she is never afraid to speak her mind and let people know exactly how she feels about things. There has been a long running debate about the lack of strong female characters in Hollywood movies, and not enough female led films in the business, and Zoe is not happy about it.
Following the success of the female led Ghostbusters movie, there has been talk of a lot more female led projects being made, which is something Zoe Saldana wants to see happen. However, Zoe has insisted that the women all over the world need to do their bit and come and support these female led projects, in order to make them a success.
Saldana explained, "The responsibility can’t only fall on women in the public eye. The audience have the power. They are the ones buying the tickets to all these man-made movies. There are films being made by female directors, by female writers, with lead female roles, but women are not going to those movies."
She added, "We’re going with our boyfriends to hold their f**king hands to go see a movie that we couldn’t care less about! I couldn’t care less about male-driven stories and war movies, not because I’m not an intellectual individual, but because I want to know what’s happening to a woman."
As for her own acting career, Zoe Saldana has reprised her role as Gamora for the new Marvel movie Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2, which is set to hit the big screen on April 28, 2017 in the UK and on May 5, 2017 in the US.
