Zoe Saldana is a beauty to behold on the cover of Allure Magazine’s July 2016 issue.
The gorgeous mother of two rocks her signature red lips and straight hair on the cover and on the inside spread she puts her banging bod on display in an embellished blouse and orange bikini bottoms amongst other outfits.
The actress opens up on her views about motherhood, racism, feminism and more in the interview.
See more pictures and some highlights from her interview below.
On raising her 19-month-old identical twins, Cy and Bowie: “A blowout? I can’t do it — I end up with sh*t everywhere! There is sh*t on the boy; there is sh*t on me; there is sh*t in my hair. And I’m like, How did this happen?”
On having an emergency delivery: “The boys came at 32 weeks. They found protein in my urine; my platelets crashed. I didn’t qualify for an epidural, so I delivered under general anesthetic. I didn’t even meet them until a day later.”
On other celebrities lending support after she became a mother: “We were all reaching out to each other. I got an email from Jessica Alba — who I only know from conversations in the bathroom at events — saying, ‘Hey, congratulations. This is my to-do list of how I did things. Maybe there will be something you can use.'”
On criticism of her role as Nina Simone: “There’s no one way to be black. I’m black the way I know how to be. You have no idea who I am. I am black. I’m raising black men. Don’t you ever think you can look at me and address me with such disdain.”
On being one of those mothers that talk endlessly about their kids: “I’m one of those people now. My husband and I went to dinner the other night with some friends, and all I kept doing was talking about the boys. You can see how conversations just…I remember asking Marco, ‘Am I talking too much about the boys?’And he says, ‘A leetle bit’—you know, in that accent. We decided we need to just talk to ourselves, and that’s what we did the whole night,”
