'She was just being Britney.'
Every friendship has its bumps in the road and for Crossroads co-stars Zoe Saldana and Britney Spears, having the singer accidentally spill the beans about Zoe’s pregnancy is one of them. Back in 2014, Britney let it slip that the Guardians of the Galaxy star was expecting twins and Zoe Saldana has recently addressed it for the first time, saying that she was ‘shocked’.
In an interview with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, a fan called in to ask Zoe Saldana how she felt about the situation.
Saldana said, ‘We were on the same flight from L.A. to New York and we just talked for the duration of the flight. She has two boys, I was having twins, we had such a beautiful talk and I forgot [about it]. It never even occurred to me to tell her not to say anything because we weren’t trying to hide it, we were just trying to be discreet.’
The actress’ twin sons, Cy Aridio and Bowie Ezio, were born in November 2014 just a few months after the press caught wind of her pregnancy. She and her husband Marco Perego have also recently welcomed another addition to the family, Zen, who was born on February 18. (Britney dodged a bullet with that birth announcement.)
Speaking fondly of the pop star, Zoe said, ‘When she disclosed it, she was just being Britney. I love her [and] I don’t mean that in a negative way. I mean that in the way that she lives her life in such truth that I was shocked because we weren’t ready to sort of share that…but it was Britney so it was okay.’
However, the actress also revealed later on that she and Britney haven’t spoken since the accidental announcement.
Zoe Saldana can currently be seen kicking ass and serving face onscreen in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 alongside Chris Pratt, Bradley Cooper and Dave Bautista. She plays Gamora, a green skinned assassin with a will-they-won’t-they relationship with Pratt’s Starlord, the roguish leader of their band of misfits.
