Zoe Saldana addresses Nina Simone biopic controversy

"The reality is what keeps me focused, and what kept me from getting stressed or being hurt by the comments is that I'm doing it for my sisters, I'm doing it for my brothers and I don't care who tells me that I am not this and I am not that.

"I know who I am and I know what Nina Simone means to me, so that is my truth and that is what set me free. I can only rely on that and maintain as much humility as possible so that when I have to face the world and we have to then give the movie to the world to see ... that if it comes back ... in a negative fashion or a positive, I'm going to keep my chin up. Because that's who I am and that's who I'll be, and Nina was like that, too. I did it all out of love. Out of love for Nina, out of love for my people and who I am and my pride of being a black woman and a Latina woman and an American woman. That's my truth."

SHE RISES ABOVE IT ALL!

Sorry - she's too pretty. Nina was not a looker. Loved her, but Kimberly Elise would have been perfect. No fake nose added - and shes a great actress. So many others would have been better. An unknown would have been better.
