Saldana: Star Trek Costume Is Her Favorite – But Did Cause ‘Flashing’ Problems on Set
Speaking to E Online at the opening of the Academy of Arts and Sciences’ Hollywood Costume exhibit in L.A this week, Zoe Saldana was asked what was her favorite movie costume and she said:
Of mine? I think Star Trek. There is something about those costumes that [designer] Michael Kaplan definitely had that honored the old but brought in that spunk of today that they were just really likable.
However, Zoe also noted that the costumes for Star Trek are "uncomfortable" and actually caused some issues on the set, noting:
"I kept being reminded by all my male cast members that I was flashing. I would sit down and it would be like, ‘Oh, Zoe, cross those legs.’ And I would say, ‘They are crossed.’ [They would say], ‘Well, then put something over that because I’m just seeing everything.’
