They say an actor’s life is hard, and doesn’t Zoe Saldana know it. The most exciting thing for the sci-fi beauty about the long-awaited sequels for Star Trek and Avatar is the prospect of continued employment.
“I mean, I’m just grateful that between Star Trek II and Avatar II, I’m employed,” Zoe told E! Online at a West Hollywood Haiti benefit which she co-hosted with Emile Hirsch and Michelle Rodriguez.
“Jim [Cameron] has proven once again that even though he takes a decade between his projects, he promises to deliver you the most amazing adventure ever,” Zoe, who plays the movie’s heroine Neytiri, said.
With nine Oscar nominations for Avatar — including Best Picture and Best Director — James is in no hurry to rush out the next adventure on planet Pandora.
“We just have to come up with a great story, which we haven’t done yet,” he says. “I have a rough story, but you need to make a script, so that might take some time. Don’t start going to buy your tickets.”
