Zoe Saldana kinda/sorta comes out in the latest issue of Allure magazine
She describes herself as "androgynous", says she might raise kids with a woman one day and refuses to say if she has been in a relationship with a woman when asked....
Now we know why Bradley Cooper dated her
idk R1, there have been rumours about her bisexuality for years. Then the bearding situation with Cooper.
I think she's poking her head out of the closet.
Testing the waters. Dive in, baby, the water's fine!
More like another actress wanting attention. She has two films, Star Trek and the film with Green Gum coming out soon.
Why can't Bradley Cooper just find a nice girl?
Oh, please. This is just the usual bullshit female celebs do because they think it makes them look "edgy" and "cool" and will get them some publicity. You can thank that old whore Madonna for starting this stupid gimmick back in the early 90's.
I would usually agree with you R6, but there have been rumours and blinds about her before she ever said anything to any magazine.
R7 There's rumors about EVERYONE in Hollywood being gay.
R5 He has a nice girl, his mom. I imagine her one day sitting in a rocking chair Bradley's fruit cellar.
I might agree with you r6 but Black entertainers are not known to play that card with the Black community being as religious as they are, that is a White girl game because they can afford to play it. If a girl of color says things like that she is probably telling the truth.
The black community doesn't want to claim her and she knows it. She isn't helping with the Nina biopic upcoming, thats for sure. The black community isn't her bread and butter.
Called this long ago. We can spot our own.
She is totally masculine looking to me. Butch.
Who cares, she'll end up with a man and HO-llywood rewards women for this whereas they punish men, so IDGAF.
Isn't she about 36 or 38 at this point?
Hollywood gay actresses: gay and actively bearding (merkining?), or not bearding but closeted, portrayed as "single gals about town". Hollywood bi actresses: always eager to state that they are "label-less" and open to being with a woman, but only ever talk about openly about their male partners and inevitably end up married to a man. Hollywood straight actresses: claim to be "fluid" to titillate straight, male audiences, might be hetero-flexible to advance their careers.
R6, there do happen to be some women who are actually bi.
Plus, she pings.
She's being provocative. After the Star Trek promotion, she'll be holding onto some dude's hand. You can't have her, mean dykes!
R6 nails it. Thread closed!
If anything she sounds like she's looking for a man. She only "pings" as a bullshitter.
A lot of DLers are very willing to believe that any male celebrity is gay but refuse to believe that a female celeb could be anything other than straight (even one who "dated" a gay actor)
She comes across as dumb as a box of rocks, not very bright at all. She was on Jimmy Fallon last week, she repeatedly had to be bleeped, she kept cursing throughout.
I recall, years ago, when she first hit the acting scene, she kept talking about sex being one of the favorite hobbies.
She also has the ugliest feet on the planet! Long bony toes with lots of corns, why wear revealing shoes when your feet are so jacked up?
She's black? Unless she is a black Hispanic? I know some Cubans and Dominicans can have very dark complexions.
I don't think she's part African American. While on Fallon, she introduced her grandmother, who was in the audience, grandma looked Hispanic to me. Zoe also spoke some Spanish to her grandmother.
So she's bisexual. Who cares. She'll end up marrying a man in the end.
What do you care what she is? I don't feel like going into the history of the African slave trade, but black Aficans were not just dropped off in America. Sigh.
She's part black and native Dominican Indian.
Ooh, race mixing, it blows white people's minds.
Eh she's probably fake bi just like all the other actresses that try to get attention when they have a new movie coming out.
I read she already has a new boyfriend.
"Ooh, race mixing, it blows white people's minds."
R23, what makes you think I am white? I am actually bi-racial and one of the weirdest mixes you can imagine: black American, Swedish, French and Italian!
To me, as a native New Yorker, Zoe looks like many Hispanic New York women I have seen over the years. Sure, her complexion is darker than the average NY Puerto Rican or even some Dominicans I know, but she doesn't scream 'black American' to me and neither does another NY actress Rosario Dawson, I know she is a 'mix' too.
Of course, I realize there are mixed races and nationalities blah, blah, blah.
My very mixed family is proof of that, we look like Quincy Jones' offspring, IE: very mixed! Some of us are darker, others so light the can pass for 100% white, with race mixing you never know who gets specific features, eye colors or skin tones, but you already know that, huh?
I certainly don't need a freaking history lesson from you.
btw, I didn't mention Zoe Saldana being black, someone up thread did.
[quote]She was on Jimmy Fallon last week, she repeatedly had to be bleeped, she kept cursing throughout.
She was on that show Punk'd. I swear, she was the trashiest thing ever. Swearing galore.
"Hispanic" or "Latina" can be any "race," except there is no "race"--that's why you people keeping tripping yourselves up.
that sophism just makes you look dumb, R33.
R6 don't blame Madonna for this, I believe in Madonna's case she may have genuinely been bi or at least experimenting.
Also Madonna has always been very vocal of her love for gay male sex, saying stuff like "Every straight guy should have another man's tongue in his mouth at least once" and telling Details magazine in 1994 that "pictures in the Sex book of male homosexuality were put in their because it's my fantasy and I don't care if it upsets straight men who bought, the book they can get over it".
Madonna even casted one of her favorite gay porn actors, the late Joey Stefano in the book
"I want her to be with or genuinely into women but I'm so jaded. :/ Please god don't let this be another Anna Paquin or Megan Fox thing"
Well, it's not like someone who is married can't have same sex desires. Look at Larry Craig, Jim McGreevey, John Travolta, etc.
I agree with r20, I have noticed it often too.
I think the confusion is because in the past, all over South America, Latin America in general, people would race mix & it was no big deal. Loads of people were/are black/latin aka blatino in South America, etc. Today that seems to have totally changed.
In the past, if you spoke Spanish you were "Latino", today it's not like that, there's a lot more divisions, yet more IR relationships in America, yet at the same time, there's a LOT more divisions going on. And in the black community too with lighter and darker blacks.
I read the article on Sunday, R32, but thanks anyway. Like I said, she identifies as latina, and calls herself latina.
'Scuse me while I roll my eyes
R39, weird because she actually has said she 'most identifies' with the black community. Quote about the Nina Simone debacle -
"“All I can say is, though it did sting for a bit, that a community that you feel most identified with, would have such a negative backlash "
FWIW, I see her as both - black and latina and whatever else is in her ethnic mix.
So she says two different things I'm two different interviews. Oh yeah, she's a reliable one.
R41, where exactly does she say she's latina and not an ethnic mix in the interview? Even in the black comment, she is just saying 'most' and not completely black-identified.
This was her follow up to the sexuality question:
"So, up until now, I’ve known my life to be with men, I’ve been attracted to the male species, but if one day I wake up and I want to be with a woman, I’m going to do that. And I know I am going to be supported by the creatures that have raised me and love me and know me."
She's never been with a woman and was just speaking out loud.
Always must be sceptical about blinds but this one was widely thought to be Zoe and Bradley (BlindGossip added the update soon after Saldana and Cooper announced their split, which was indeed after 3 months). I mention because it says that she's bisexual -
"The Truth Behind This Attractive Couple
[BlindGossip] He’s a big movie star. She’s had one really major role, and is already booked for half a dozen new projects. You probably already know that they are dating. What you may not know are the facts behind the pairing. It’s a public relations set up. She is bisexual. He is gay. In fact, his ex-wife left him because she found him in bed with another guy! But for now, together, these two attractive actors make for crazed paparazzi and great photo ops. Well, that is, at least until their contract expires in a couple of months.
This relationship ended right on time. Exactly three months. Neither star wanted to renew the contract. Next!"
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
