Blue ‘Avatar’ actress going green

SAN DIEGO - How many more colors can Zoe Saldana be on the big screen?

“Well, the rainbow has a lot of colors,” Saldana said in an interview at Comic-Con, laughing. “I dig it. I like being in space. I get to play less girlfriends, more female parts, more women. So I find it meaty.”

The actress portrays green-skinned alien Gamora in Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” after going blue in James Cameron’s “Avatar,” a role she’s expected to return to for sequels. And she recently reprised her other space-bound character, Uhura, in JJ Abrams’ “Star Trek Into Darkness.”

“It’s a testament to how creative the people that conceive supernatural and science-fiction kind of stories,” Saldana, 35, said of her love for the genre. “They’re able to build something out of nothing by just imagining it. I have a huge fascination with that. Filmmakers like JJ, like [“Guardians” director] James [Gunn], like James Cameron. .?.?. You need to be really, really special to do that. So I like being with special people.”
