Saldana: I'm happy with my body

Zoe Saldana has revealed she is happier with her body now than ever before.

The Guardians Of The Galaxy actress, who is rumoured to be pregnant, said she has become more accepting of her figure as she stripped off for the latest issue of Women's Health UK.

"My body is less toned. I do look in the mirror and see things I don't want. My first reaction is I breathe and I think, 'I'm a woman, I'm 36, my body is changing'," she said.

"This past year I've had to start letting go. My body dictated it as if saying, 'Slow the f**k down!'... And I struggle with that."

Zoe, who graced the front cover of the September issue, continued: "I'm exactly where I want to be. I do feel beautiful in a way that even when I was working out a whole lot, I sometimes didn't.

"Because 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**k it. Just be happy, regardless."

There was no hint of a baby bump in the pictures taken during the photoshoot, but Zoe has been looking blossoming during recent appearances to promote The Guardians Of The Galaxy.

Speaking about her husband, Italian artist Marco Perego, who she married a year ago in London, Zoe said: "We give each other a great deal of support and love but it wasn't because we found it in each other, we came that way and then got together.

"That's what I love about it. I do believe whatever's meant to be will be - but had the universe said, 'Let's just wait, he's going to come into your life later,' I would've been fine on this journey I was on just knowing who the f**k I was."

The Zoe Saldana interview launches the Women's Health Body For Life campaign in the September Naked issue, which is on sale July 30. It is also available as a digital edition.
