Zoe Saldana doesn't care how long it takes James Cameron to make the sequel to Avatar.

Same goes for the follow-up to Star Trek, the other sci-fi hit she was in this year...

"I mean, I'm just grateful that between Star Trek II and Avatar II, I'm employed," Saldana told me with a laugh last night at West Hollywood hotel Palihouse, where she cohosted a Haiti benefit with Emile Hirsch and Michelle Rodriguez.

"Jim has proven once again that even though he takes a decade between his projects, he promises to deliver you the most amazing adventure ever," Saldana said.

And from what Cameron told E! News recently, it sure sounds like Saldana won't be blue again for awhile. "We just have to come up with a great story, which we haven't done yet," he said. "I have a rough story, but you need to make a script, so that might take some time. Don't start going to buy your tickets."

Last night's Haiti event was aimed at raising funds to help Vin Diesel's One Race Foundation provide baby formula for the earthquake-devastated Caribbean nation.

Saldana hopes to visit Haiti, but probably not any time in the near future. "We'd just be in the way, so sometimes you're of better use lending your voice to organizations," she said. "Eventually I will make a trip there, but my voice allows me to do a lot more right now."

She also recently shot a PSA urging people to donate to the Red Cross International Response Fund.
