It looks like Zoe Saldana has thrown her I’m-so-androgynous-I-might- raise-my-future-children-with-a-girlfriend spiel out the window.
A few weeks after being spotting canoodling with an unnamed man at the Los Angeles premier of Star Trek:Into Darkness, Zoe Saldana has taken her burgeoning relationship with said man public, and now we know who he is: Marco Perego, a former professional soccer player turned artist.
Perego and Saldana traipsed around the island of Carpi, kissing and hugging as they went. Photos were snapped of the pair taking a ride on a speedboat, walking hand-in-hand while shopping, and, in one particular affectionate pic, the Saldana checked her phone while Perego leaned in to smooch her ear.
Saldana’s relationship with Perego comes close after her on-again-off-again relationship of a year with fellow actor Bradley Cooper. Shortly after she and Cooper broke it off, Saldana said she was done dating her fellow actors: “Been there, done that, got the t-shirt.”
Saldana has good taste in men (as far as looks go, anyways) but surely some of her sex appeal comes from her self-confidence and sense of self-worth. A few years ago, Zoe told a magazine,”Look at me. I’m skinny, I have a big nose, no t*ts and no a*s, but in a room full of beautiful women, I would still leave with the most gorgeous guy.”
Zoe, we believe you.
