*Guess whose the new face of Latina magazine?
Well, we’ll tell you. Afro-Latina actress Zoe Saldana is on the cover of the magazine’s fall style issue. The 33-year-old Dominican and Puerto Rican is also the star in this month’s much talked about “Colombiana.”
Her new role comes after her success in last year’s Avatar.
“The year after Avatar was just emotionally overwhelming. I was traveling all over the world, waking up in different time zones. Your body gets exhausted, and by the end of the year I just collapsed.”
In the midst of all the excitement and movement, she almost shut down.
“I was in Paris training for Colombiana, sitting in my hotel room, and I couldn’t stop crying. I couldn’t stay awake. I must have slept for an entire month. It took me the rest of the year, even as I was working and shooting ‘Colombiana,’ to pick myself up. Thank God my family was there.”
