Zoe and the twins are bringing these feathers back to life, Honey!
Pregnancy is not showing the “Guardians of the Galaxy” star down at all as she covers the November 2014 issue of Elle Magazine in a Lanvin halter minidress. The New Jersey-born Dominican beauty is also preparing to star in the Nina Simone bio-pic as she awaits the arrivals of her bundles of Joy. They are her first children with husband, Marco Perego.
In her interview, the “Star Trek” star talked about how she originally asked director, Cynthia Mort to cast someone else in the controversial lead role of Nina Simone, but she had a change of heart.
“But she came to me and said that everybody was afraid, and I thought, ‘S—, then how can we complain that there aren’t enough films about African-American iconic figures?'”
She also says that the time she spent in the Dominican Republic when she was younger helped her become the person she is today.
“(My sisters and I are) not American in terms of feeding into that machine that you have to be somebody,” she said. “We were somebody the moment we were born.”
I love it.
