Tips From Zoe Saldana

Men's Health |

Zoe Saldana broke through the Hollywood stratosphere in 2009 when she played both a galaxy exploring lieutenant in Star Trek and a strangely hot, blue-skinned alien in Avatar. She then returned to Earth alongside Christian Bale in Out of the Furnace, before blasting off again for the recent extraterrestrial superhero flick Guardians of the Galaxy. We’ll boldly go wherever she takes us.

A well-dressed man is to us what a woman in a bikini is to you.
“We love when men dress up. I even love a man in suspenders – it creates a Buster Keaton or Charlie Chaplin kind of look. Men shouldn’t be afraid to experiment with fashion and they should enjoy shopping instead of always looking at the same old clothing shops.”

If you take a little time to talk to us, the sex will be better.
“Guys hardly ever ask if it’s good for us, but if you’re not a good lover, you need to hear it. Porn isn’t the best educational tool – you need to ask your woman if she’s satisfied. A huge chunk of the men walking this earth still have no idea how the vagina works. So ask us; we’ll tell the truth.”

We notice when you go the distance to make us feel special.
“When a woman is leaving your place, it’s not enough to just walk her to the door and close it behind her. A lot of men do that, but it’s not very gentlemanly – it says he cares very little about her. What you should do is walk her out the door and wait for her to get in her car and drive away.”

We know when you’re annoyed, so just tell us why.
“Men often try to hide their emotions, and as a result, women feel like they’re going crazy when something’s wrong. Even if you tell yourself you’re not bothered, you’re still acting differently. So be open. Give us a chance to clarify or apologise. It shows us you’re a rational and flexible person.”
