“I don’t ever want to retire,” Saldana said Thursday night at a Star Trek Into Darkness screening at Paramount Studios in New York City. “What am I going to do, gardening?”
“I’m always going to be evolving in my career. Right now, I’ve finally found something that makes me happy. I’ve been doing this for over 10 years and it makes me happy,” she continued. “And the moment this business doesn’t make happy I am going to do something else.”
Saldana stars alongside Chris Pine, who plays Captain Kirk, and Zachary Quinto, as Spock in the Star Trek re-boot. Sherlock actor Benedict Cumberbatch portrays the mysterious villain, John Harrison.
Star Trek Into Darkness, which is screening in 3D, is rated PG-13. It’s the only movie opening in wide release this week.
