Zoe Saldana Gets Risqué In December DETAILS: Excerpts & Photos

Not to be outdone by Chris Pine, JJ Abrams and the boys of Star Trek who are all over the December GQ Magazine, Zoe Saldana is featured in the December issue of Details Magazine. We have some excerpts, including some racy comments from the actress, plus DETAILS has sent us some hot hi-res photos of the new Uhura below.


Zoe Saldana likes her action

In her recent interview with TrekMovie.com, Zoe Saldana talked about how she wanted to "kick some ass" in the Star Trek sequel. In the December issue of DETAILS, Saldana talks more about her roles in Star Trek and Avatar, and how she has always been drawn to strong female roles, stating:

“I’ve become a little action whore,” Saldana says. Emphasis on action, not the other thing. “I’ve always gravitated toward the Sigourney Weavers, the fucking Linda Hamiltons, the Angelina Jolies. I just love strong women that are in tune with their bodies—that don’t just use their bodies as sex tools. I’m very dominant—feisty. I’m not a man-hater, just a very proud woman."

The feature on Saldana also quotes Star Trek director JJ Abrams, who said of Saldana:

Zoë’s definitely fiery," says Abrams, who has already signed her for the Star Trek sequel. "She has the fortitude for you to put her in control. She could really do the job—not just look good in a ridiculously short dress.

That’s quite the little mouth on her. She needs a spanking.


Oh my…



Hey Anthony, maybe you should hire a censor?

Good thing she didn’t talk that way in the movie.


I’ll be in my bunk.

Now this is journalism at its finest. : D

Lol, she’s too skinny. Also, she’s not that great of an actress.

I agree to skinny like all up and coming actresses.
but loved her in Star Trek!

“…that don’t just use their bodies as sex tools.”

Need I point out the irony of this statement as it is tucked between two scantily clad pictures of her in a bathing suit. She should be proud of her body for sure. I mean, she is absolutely stunning. But to make a statement about not objectifying your body and then go posing half-nude in the same article is a bit ridiculous.

Look forward to seeing more of her in Star Trek XII (pun intended).

Makes me long for Nichelle back in her 40 or so glory years.

That’s a woman!

She will fit in well in the Terran Empire. She can be the Capts Woman. Wheeeew.

Yes, but can she do the fan dance?


nice gold :D that should be a terran empire command uniform!!

Just like Uhura…she looks good in gold but best in red!

I’m gonna resist commenting, just this once, but it’s SO hard!

Beam Me Up!

Beam Me Up Again

@ 13 & 17: LOL.

Hoover DAM!

I had a train of thought when I clicked on this thread, but it seems to have jumped a track or two. Oh, my….

Uhmmm… nice… a bit skinny though… at least for my taste…

5- Good thing she didn’t talk that way in the movie.

Yeah, cause then it would have made twice as much money.

The words ‘sex’ and ‘tool’ really shouldn’t be used in the same sentence next to those pictures!!

Have to pick up that magazine!! The women’s agony columns are always a hoot too!! ;)

She’s in that issue yet they have that D-BAG on the cover??? Nice tattoo tool.

Look, did you guys really need to spell out the F-Word? I imagine kids do frequent here, hell, this place even has a kid’s correspondent. Surely, whoever wrote up this article (it’s just listed as “by TrekMovie.com staff) could have easily typed up “the f###ing Linda Hamiltons”. Most people would’ve gotten what Miss Saldana was implying.


@26. You realize you said the word “hell” very casually in your statement. Some people consider that to be a profane word as well you know. I wouldnt say “what the fuck” around a child…and i wouldnt say “what the hell”

and as my final point…its simple….its really not that big of a deal that they reprinted the fuck word on here. it just isn’t. get over it.

I see Planned Parenthood has invaded the board…

Anyway, I’m with the “too skinny” crowd myself, but I thought she did a great job as Uhura, and I would find her believable kicking butts and taking names, phaser in hand.

11) Hahaha! – yeah seriously dude, Nichols was working some K-RAZY abs in Mirror, Mirror! XD

But *gasp* TrekMovie is posting an article that features a scantily clad woman! 0__0 Looks like most everyone is pretty chill about it so far – let’s see how long it takes for some of the more skin-adverse folks to turn up the complaining, shall we?

Dig Saldana’s love for the sci-fi heroines, maybe Team J.J. will cut her in on a piece of the action next time out. Catch that Orci? Forget about Klingons and Khans for sec – the real danger in outer space is the wrath of Saldana! You guys are going to have to let her hit SOMEBODY – the tigress needs out of the cage! XD

(look for TOS reference kids!)

– 24thCRS!

26. Hate to say this but how would that help exactly? Kids can fill in the blanks too (I know – I did when I was younger).

Honestly, I think people are simultaneously too sensitive about profanity AND too eager to use it. I think this is an example of both to some extent.

Maybe it could have said that she said “fu-u-u-u-u-u-udge” except she didn’t really say “fudge,” but the mother of all bad words, the f dash-dash-dash word?

She looks great! I don’t normally like women that thin either…but for some reason, it works for her…

She’s ssssmokin!

She just doesn’t seem as classy as Nichelle Nichols.

The tribble in my pants is starting to purr…

…must… resist… urge… to overload my own phaser…

I think she should be in charge of handling the Captain’s log in the next movie.

She needs to do Playboy. Now.

Yesss!!! Zoe!!! Lovin her rite now!

Wow, John Mayer looks like a dirt bag now.

As much as I love Nichelle, one can’t look at her early nude pics (search google and you’ll find em) and say that Zoe is less classy… they all make mistakes starting out I guess…

Wow… uptight folks here.

No problems here with using the “F-Word” (fuck, in case you don’t know what I meant) as it’s quoting the material. Love 27s remark about 26 complaining about some 4-letter words and not others. it’s EON, baby. Everything or nothing.

As for the pix… not a bad looking girl at all, though the smarmy comments about her, captain’s logs, and such leave me with bad images of people hunched over their computers wheezing and making sure mom doesn’t come in.

And to those disappointed that she’s doing bathing suit pix, look at the industry. Doing the Maxim/FHM/GQ/whatever circuit keeps your face (and other naughty bits) fresh in between gigs. It’s not like her face will get much play for “Avatar”.

Funny enough, she’s wearing more in these shots than she did in the movie, and she did some ass wiggling to get that skirt off.

There. Done. Thank you GQ.

She’s one well-endowed lady – I’d like to get my hands on her ample nacelles, if you’ll pardon the engineering parlance…

Damn, she’s good-looking. A lot hotter than the previous actress who played Uhura, that’s for sure.

Two words – Mirror Universe.

That’s not too skinny. That’s just right!


While I do enjoy the pictures, it drives me nuts when actresses claim to be against selling themselves as sex symbols and then posing skantily clad in men’s magazines. If Zoe Saldana and others want to pose, that is fine, but you can’t have it both ways. Men are driven by sex. It is just the way we are. A more logical argument would be that she is proud of her body, wants to flaunt it and does’nt care what anyone else thinks. And I understand that there are those who are offended, and all I can say is that I am sure Zoe and other actresses are comfortable with this. In other words, if no one is being exploited, then there should be no problem. No one is going to agree.

Mr. Orci and Mr. Kurtzman,

Please, please, please write in that the skirts have to be shorter in the sequel!

TOS Short to be exact! :D



so the poster that uses “ZoeSaldana’sThong” as their handle takes issue with “smarmy comments” that were only a bit of fun?

Whats that I hear? Oh, that’s just the irony being defined.


#42 — That’s your opinion.

Back in the day, Nichelle was pretty damned hot.

That’s my opinion. ;-)

Zoe should due that fan dance that Nichelle did in FF… she has the gams as well!…
I believe even George Takei would say Oh my!
