Zoe Saldana, Watch What Happens


Leave it to Andy Cohen to ask the questions everybody wants the answers to.

When Zoe Saldana stopped by Bravo's Watch What Happens Live on Thursday, Dec. 5, the actress wasn't asked about her big hits like Star Trek or Avatar, but rather one of her earliest movies featuring a certain pop star.

In particular, what it was like working with said pop star.

"She has starred in some major blockbusters, but there's one film that stands out from the rest," Cohen said as he introduced Saldana. "My fave, that's right, Crossroads, with Miss Britney Jean Spears."

After showing a clip from the 2002 flick, Cohen said, "I'm going to put 30 seconds on the clock and I'm going to ask Zoe everything I can about Brit-Brit."

Cohen: "Who did Britney bond with the most on the set?"

Saldana: "Taryn [Manning]"

Cohen: "When was the last time you spoke to Britney?

Saldana: "Oh god. Years, years."

Cohen: "Did J.T. (Justin Timberlake) come and visit her on the set?

Saldana: "Yes."

And then came the inquiry we were all hoping to hear.

Cohen: "On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate her acting chops?"

Saldana: "Very good."

Cohen: "OK, give me a number."

Saldana: "I would say a 6, 7, 8-ish."

Hmm, something tells us Cohen would totally disagree.
