Zoe Saldana still Misses Her Dad

Zoe-zoe-saldana-32442157-1280-8001 When she was only nine years old, Zoe Saldana lost her father in a car accident. The actress admits that she has never managed to completely get over that pain. She told InStyle magazine: ”I know the older I get I romanticize him more and more, but he was very beautiful and very disciplined. It was hard – since I was nine I’ve never been able to day ‘Dad’. And I’ve had a stepfather since I was very young who I adore and he knows how much we love him. But he’s not my dad. So when I hear little people say ‘Daddy’, it’s always like a f***ing knife in your heart. And you always walk this earth with that broken little wing.”

She needed to raise us as the mum and dad – and she did. She raised three women that are very male. My mind is very mechanical. When stress rises, I don’t start spinning. Like, why are you running around like a headless chicken? Sit down, shut up and think,” the actress said.
