Zoe Saldana can handle heartbreak
Zoe Saldana recovers from heartbreak “very easily”.
The ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ beauty – who split from ‘The Hangover Part III’ hunk Bradley Cooper last year – insists it doesn’t take her long to get over a failed romance.
Asked how she copes with heartbreak, she said: “I feel it. I allow myself to feel it. Of course everyone around me will notice how it made me feel, but I tend to recover very easily.
“Maybe it’s just the kind of person I am or maybe I haven’t really fallen in love yet or had that ‘crash, boom, bam’ in my life, but I tend to recover, you know, healthily and smoothly.”
The outspoken 34-year-old star also asserts that she won’t let a man walk all over her and has no problem saying ‘no’, even if she’s branded a “b***h” as a result.
She explained: “As I’ve grown older I’ve become more comfortable. Also, as a woman, it’s very important as you age to learn the power of saying no. Because of our gender, society, politics, our nature and our history, we’ve been unconsciously, and not purposely, conditioned to be ‘yes’ people.
“It’s OK for a woman to say no. You won’t be liked, trust me. If a man says no, he’s cool but if a woman says no, it’s like, ‘What a b***h”. I have no problem saying no.”
