Zoe Saldana laidback about sexuality

Zoe Saldana has revealed her relaxed approach to sexuality and is open to the fact she might "end up with a woman".

The 34-year-old actress discussed her approach to sexuality with Allure magazine.

In the revealing interview Zoe hinted she is open to the idea of having a family with a woman.

"[I'd describe myself] as androgynous. One day I might end up with a woman raising my children...that's how androgynous I am!" Zoe admitted. "Yes, I was raised that open."

The outspoken star revealed her feelings about the opposite sex recently where she joked about her ideal man to the UK edition of InStyle.

Zoe was asked by Allure if she's ever had a relationship with another woman, but deliberated over her answer.

"Promise me one thing: you're going to ask this question [in the article] - if you choose to, just put three dots as my response. That's it," Zoe teased."..."

Zoe dated Bradley Cooper for several months in 2012. They had an on/off relationship but reportedly ended it for good in December. She is single at the moment, and isn't interested in dating actors.

"Been there, done that, got the T-shirt," she joked, before adding her decisive view on love. "If I have something good in front of me - it doesn't matter if it's a person or a pair of shoes - I'm not going to test something else. It's insecure, and it's immature."

Zoe has come up against battles over her skin colour recently. She was cast as Nina Simone in an upcoming movie, but was criticised for not being dark-skinned enough for the part.

"Let me tell you, if Elizabeth Taylor can be Cleopatra, I can be Nina - I'm sorry," Zoe fumed. "It doesn't matter how much backlash I will get for it. I will honour and respect my black community because that's who I am."

Nowadays Zoe is less concerned about her skin shade than she is about discrimination over her sex. She firmly believes being female is her greatest battle in life.

"Being a woman in a man's world," she explained. "It's hard enough to be a woman on this earth. So to be an American or black or Latina, it's arbitrary compared to our battles as women."
