Actor Zoe Saldana is styled by Catherine Newell-Hanson in 'Boldly Go', lensed by Ward Ivan Rafik for Porter Edit April 6, 2018.
In her interview with Jennifer Dickinson the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' star admits that always being cast in supporting roles -- the one just perfect for her Dominican and Puerto Rican roots -- was downright depressing.
Saldana added to PorterEdit magazine: "In my country, where I pledged allegiance every day since I was five, to be told when I'm out there trying to pursue my American dream that I was not a traditional American was very hurtful.
"I will never accept that I am not a traditional anything. I come from where I come from, I can't change that, and you come from where you come from."
On the note, the determined actor in the new Marvel Avengers movie, with Avatar and Star Trek in her portfolio, moves forward.
