ZOE-SALDANA-IN-STYLE

*The July issue of InStyle magazine features Zoe Saldana on the cover, and an article inside where she talks about her Italian artist husband Marco Perego becoming Marco Saldana.

The actress reveals how he went against tradition and took her last name after the two secretly married in the summer of 2013. Perego, it turns out, made the progressive decision in spite of his wife’s doubts.

“I tried to talk him out of it. I told him, ‘If you use my name, you’re going to be emasculated by your community of artists, by your Latin community of men, by the world’,” the star told InStyle. “But Marco looks up at me and says [she puts on a cute Italian accent], ‘Ah, Zoe, I don’t give a sheet.’”

The issue of InStyle featuring Saldana hits newsstands on June 15.
