It takes a superhero effort to land roles, says Avengers star Zoe Saldana
ZOE SALDANA says she has to work doubly hard to land her place in movie blockbusters because of the colour of her skin.
Zoe, 39, whose films include Avengers: Infinity War, Avatar and Guardians Of The Galaxy, said: ‘Ask any artist of colour if they feel like they have to work harder. I don’t mean that we deserve any special treatment — I don’t want anybody’s sympathy.’
She tells Cosmopolitan magazine: ‘You do have to work twice as hard to make someone in a position of power who has the power to f*** with your life see why they should hire you.’ The full interview is in the May issue, out now.
