I do feel beautiful in a way that even when I was working out a whole lot, I sometimes didn’t.” Zoe continues, “There have been times that I was really slender and I didn’t like that I sometimes looked a little too muscular and flat chested — you’ll never be completely happy, so at the end of the day it’s like ‘F*** it. Just be happy, regardless.’ This past year I’ve had to start letting go. My body dictated it as if saying, ‘Slow the f*** down!’ And I struggle with that. I love to be an athlete.” Saldana is currently expecting her first child with husband Marco Perego.
