Zoe Saldana may be one of the fittest stars around (that's usually part of the program when you're an action star), but since becoming pregnant, she admits that she's not only having some very particular cravings...

She's also experiencing a bit of forgetfulness!

The 36-year-old Guardians of the Galaxy star talked all about her "spastic" mindset at the moment on an episode of Untold With Maria Menounos airing Thursday, admitting during her exclusive sit-down with Maria, "You forget a lot of things!"

So what kind of stuff has slipped her mind so far? Her other half's name, for one! 

"My husband's name is Marco [Perego], and there have been a couple of times I've called him Michael," she laughed. "I have like Dori brain from [Finding] Nemo—I reset like every three seconds."

The mom-to-be also confessed to some, um, kinda cooky cravings, too (think baked goods and preserved meats, together).

"You find yourself driving around bakeries, over and over, drive-thrus," she said. "Like, what am I doing?"

Zoe warned Maria, too, when she has her own bun in the oven someday, she's going to be eating some weird things, too. "Your heritage is known for its food," she said. "You're going to be eating. It's really good, and you'll be eating weird things, like..."

Um, watch the clip above to find out Zoe's predictions for what a pregnant Maria will want. It might sound gross now, but Zoe insists she's eaten her rancid-sounding recs, too, saying, "At the time, it was wonderful!"

Saldana also talks to Maria about suiting up as a superhero in Guardians of the Galaxy, saying that she didn't set out to be an action hero, but always wanted to be "physically active."

"I love using my body, I love pushing myself and feeling my own sweat and hearing a whole bunch of 'no's' and turning that into, like, a yes," she explained. "I love that...I like following my own path, you know?"
