*Zoe Saldana looks stunning on the cover of Fashion Magazine‘s August issue.

But within the pages, she gets personal talking about marrying Marco Perago shortly after breaking up with Bradley Cooper.

Saldana dished to Fashion Magazine about her ex Cooper and how Perago quickly became her husband.

Saldana’s break up with Cooper shocked fans and her marriage shortly after shocked everyone even more. But she said her marriage happened at the right time.

“I was finally able to spend time without being in a relationship and even though, it was a short period of time, it was beautiful,” she said. “Where I lost that fear of being alone.  It was bliss. Then I met my partner when I was in really a beautiful place in my life.”

She added, “it was like I found all my answers with him not in him.  I was finding my answers on my own.”

Also, she had some advice for women — especially the younger ladies out there.

“It’s important to not have women be afraid of you, to accept your mortality and your aging so that you can be a better mentor for up and coming women,” she said.

She’s lived it already — obviously going through her own relationships and seemingly (yet shockingly) getting it right with husband Perago. Saldana continued to talk about young women dos and don’ts.

“Whenever these young women come and they just want to take everything all at once, just because they’re younger and their asses are harder and plumper, you kind of go, ‘Child, sit down,” she added. “Yes, you’re beautiful but listen to these 1, 2, 3s.’ 1. Don’t hike up your skirt too much. 2. I’m pretty sure you’re intelligent so act like it. 3. Read a book.”

Fashion Magazine’s August issue will be out on Monday, July 14, 2014.
