When we asked her the No.1 takeaway she gained from the flick, she didn't hesitate.
"I'm going to be honest: L.A. fashion," she revealed. "I was 22 coming into a city that was very different form New York. It was sunny and beautiful and any day of the year you can wear summer clothes. That was a great memory from that time, besides working with Britney Spears."
She also added, "I think I've said it enough, it was fantastic, and I was directed by a woman [Tamra Davis] and that was double fantastic."
So, now that 15 years have gone by, what does Saldana think a road trip with Spears and Manning would look like today?
"I think much better," she told us, laughing. "I think we're like wine—we keep getting better as we age, and I think it would've been something interesting."
We couldn't agree more!
