TODAY – The June issue of Allure breaks that taboo, and readers are reacting. Zoe Saldana appears on the upcoming cover, and the headline under her name reads, “115 pounds of grit and heartache.”
She didn’t mind, though, telling Savannah Guthrie on TODAY Thursday, “It would have been wrong if they were lying (about the weight)…. I’ve always been a very thin frame…. They wanted to do that, I don’t think it was to make an issue of my weight. I think it was to talk about that for a lightweight person, I seem to be really strong-minded.”
In the slideshow on Allure’s website, the 5-foot-7-inch Saldana is photographed naked (but posed so nothing is revealed). She discusses her sexuality in a coy way, saying she might “end up with a woman raising my children.” When asked if she has had a same-sex relationship, she instructs the writer to “just put three dots as my response.”
“I think it’s important to get out that whatever I decide to do with my sexual preference will be my prerogative and my right, and as of right now I’ve been attracted to the male species,” she told Guthrie. “I don’t know if that will continue.”
Saldana’s sexuality might seem to be the most interesting revelation from her Allure coverage, but for many, it was the cover editor’s decision to print her weight that caused controversy.
