Mom-to-be Zoe Saldana and her baby bump are making their rounds around NYC today. Peep the Guardians of the Galaxy star and her cute baby bump make a stop at "GMA" studios and stroll through SoHo inside…
The fab mom-to-be was spotted making her way inside “GMA” studios to promote her new film Guardians of the Galaxy, donning a burgundy midi dress and nude Christian Louboutins that showed off her growing belly. It’s reported Zoe is expecting twins with her Italian husband Marco Perego.
The 36-year-old actress chopped it up with GMA host George Stephanopoulos about her role as an alien warrior named Gamora in the upcoming sci-fi film. She talks about her character being a bullfighter (inspired by her husband) and what inspired the fight scenes. She said,
“It was the most graceful form of dance… it was at the time when I was wondering if I was going to do ‘Guardians’ and I thought, ‘oh my God I should, and she should totally be a bull fighter, instead of just a martial artist.'"
The sci-fi queen also talked about her love for playing in space-type movies (i.e. Avatar, Star Trek). She dished,
“I’ve always had an affinity for the unknown and imagining the unimaginable. It feels good to be in space.”
Check her interview below:
