Zoe Saldana is trying hard not to react every time her young sons cry.

The actress and her husband Marco Perego welcomed sons Bowie Ezio and Cy Aridio in November 2014, but is finding it hard not to panic every time they bawl.

However, she's trying to harden herself to the tears.

"They’re sleep-training. You have no idea. It's good to actually get out of the house for a little bit, but we stayed there. I'm in absolute anguish. Because we've done every gentle method, and we’ve finally come to the conclusion that every parent has been telling us... you have to let them cry a little bit. So it’s just our insides are absolutely broken, but that's what we have to do," she confessed to Us Weekly.

"Marco’s mom kind of kicked us out of the house. She was like, 'Just leave me with these kids, go have a good time, have some popcorn.'"

Zoe was talking at the LA Film Festival premiere of her new flock Infinity Polar Bear and looked stunning in asymmetrical floor sweeping Louis Vuitton dress.

Since giving birth the 36-year-old has been as busy as ever with work, and she currently has six new projects in the pipeline - including the second, third and forth instalments of Avatar.

In a separate interview with USA Today the star spoke of how movie studios reacted when she told them she was pregnant.

"Let me tell you something, it will never be the right time for anybody in your life that you get pregnant. The productions I was slated to work on sort of had a panic. I heard through the grapevine there was even a conversation of me being written off of one of the projects. I was like, 'Oh, my God, are you kidding me? It's this bad? Right when I just feel super-duper happy, is that inconvenient for you? That me, as a woman in my thirties, I finally am in love and I am finally starting my life? And it's [screwing] your schedule up? Really?'" she fumed.
