(NEW YORK) — Following her breakup with Bradley Cooper, actress Zoe Saldana hasn’t given up on love.
“I worship men. Men are Adonises,” the 34-year-old beauty told InStyle UK.
In fact her ideal guy is a strong, sensitive type. “A bada** renegade! A pirate! A pirate who can cry. Oh, my God!” she told the magazine’s June edition.
The star of the upcoming film Star Trek Into Darkness has never confirmed nor denied her relationship with Cooper, though the pair were spotted off and on through 2012.
Instead Saldana prefers keeping her private life, well, private.
“It’s physically hard and it’s so unnatural for me to talk about certain intimate and private areas of my life, that I’m incapable, naturally incapable of saying anything remotely relating to this topic…” she told InStyle. “Literally, I’m sweating.”
She did, however, allude to her heartbreaking split with former fiance entrepreneur Keith Britton after 11 years together.
“When it didn’t work [with Britton] it was heartbreaking for the both of us, but it’s life,” Saldana said, adding that the breakup did not make her bitter about love. “I believe in love because I had it for so long, so I know it’s possible. I’m not one of these people who’s going, ‘Oh, because I was with someone for so long I need to take a break.’ What if love is just around the corner?”
Saldana is also unafraid of a little lust, acknowledging that women may think naughty thoughts even if they don’t talk about them. “We’re very, very filthy too,” she joked to the magazine.
“I’m tired of watching these 50-year-old actors with these 23-year-old actresses and they’re soul mates in the movie. What? [In real life] a 23-year-old would look at a 50-year-old and go, ‘Are you kidding me?!’” she added. “We love plump muscles as much as they do.”
