‘Avatar’ movie cast member Zoe Saldana on making movies as a woman in Hollywood

Actress Zoe Saldana has been kicking ass lately. Like really kicking ass. Both in this past summer's 'Star Trek' reboot and now with the upcoming James Cameron sci-fi epic 'Avatar'. Since breaking in with Steven Spielberg's 'Terminal' she's been an IT girl for a lot sexy, action roles. One has to wonder if she's going to give Angelina Jolie a run for her money.

And so she stars as a blue-skinned alien warrior named Neytiri in James Cameron’s long-awaited 3-D digital epic “Avatar.” First cast in 2006, Saldana spent months training for her role, which required her to don a motion capture suit every day and strap on head gear designed to record her facial expressions. “By the time I was playing her on camera, playing Neytiri was like second nature for me,” she says. “I strove to make her as natural as possible.”
