It was just revealed that actress Zoe Saldana considered quitting Hollywood after making the 2003 blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Saldana appeared in the hugely successful action-adventure flick as a female pirate named Anamaria and had a small role compared to the movie’s stars Orlando Bloom, Johnny Depp, and Keira Knightley. The now pregnant 36-year old said that the political issues that went on behind the scenes almost led her to quit the business because due to feeling disrespected and underappreciated.
In addition to starring in Avatar (one of the most exciting, creative, and imaginative films of the last ten years and definitely the best 3D flick I’ve ever seen in theaters), Star Trek, and Guardians of the Galaxy (giving fan boys and girls a reason to go to the movies), Saldana is a bonafide fashion icon. She is absolutely one of the best-dressed actresses living today, always looking stunning on the red carpet. Zoe genuinely loves fashion, looks good in everything, and is a muse to numerous designers and fashion houses, including Prabal Gurung, Balmain, and Calvin Klein. If she had quit acting, we wouldn’t get to be inspired by her style and we would not have gotten to see some of her gorgeous looks.
The girl can do no wrong in the getting-dressed department because, even in her choices that lead to mixed opinions, she looks flawless. And she has those moments because she takes fashion risks.
