Tom Munro for Allure
Zoe Saldana feels for the editorial team at Allure.
Asked about the backlash the magazine received for revealing the actress' weight on its June cover ("115 pounds of grit and heartache"), the actress chatted about the controversy with E! News at the Cannes Film Festival—and, once again, she said that Allure was simply trying to find a snappy way to contrast her big personality with her slight frame.
"I come really hard, I'm a very aggressive person when you meet me because I am a devout New Yorker and I'm Latina so this is my personality," she tells us. "It's not the first time that people have said, for such a delicate-looking person, you're very tough. And I think that was the idea that they wanted to get across as a compliment to what they saw in me."
