Zoe Saldana, real-life action star, on ninja stars and lipstick
Saldana stars as an assassin with a penchant for lollipops in the upcoming "Colombiana," and she says that after filming wrapped, she had some trouble ditching her character. Recently, she was out dancing when a fight broke out in the club.
"I knew exactly what I was going to do," she says. "Kick this door, grab this, move that guy out of the way. Then I started laughing: Oh, my God, I still have Cataleya in my system."
After this role, she's choosing quieter parts for a while, with less butt-kicking but just as much girl power. "It gets pretty boring when all you are is the support system for a male character," she says. "I want to be in the small percentage of women who don't settle for conventional roles."
