Zoe Saldana - Midas Touch By Frank Ariveso Zoe Saldana breathes a huge sigh of relief at the mention of the upcoming third Guardians of the Galaxy movie, which director James Gunn only revealed the day before. “It’s the greatest,” she squeals. “To be promoting the second, knowing there’s going to be a third, it’s an amazing validation.” Like there was ever any doubt. Guardians of the Galaxy was one of the highest grossing movies of 2014, bringing in nearly a whopping $800 million at
 the box office. And the follow-up has grossed even more topping $859 million at the time of this writing. Plus, there’s the Saldana Midas touch. With Guardians, Avatar and Star Trek, she’s part of the biggest sci-fi franchises known to
 man. Where Zoe Saldana goes, big returns follow.
 But now a married mom of three young boys, the actress is beginning to question her intergalactic leanings. Promoting the Marvel blockbuster, which sees her lethal weapon character, Gamora reteam with Chris Pratt’s Peter Quill and Bradley Cooper’s Rocket to save the universe from another gargantuan threat, Zoe admits it might be time to come down to earth. And recent roles in Ben Affleck’s gangster saga, Live by Night, are testament to this change in direction. That doesn’t mean Saldana’s done with kicking butt. Open and warm, the 38-year-old chats about her initial reservations over the latest Guardians epic and explains her fears of “one hit wonders.” She also chats motherhood, balancing it all, her partnership with artist husband Marco Perego and why her attitude toward men has drastically changed. Saldana lives in LA with Perego and their twin boys, Cy and Bowie, 2, and two-month-old, Zen.
