It's unclear whether Zoe Saldaña considered changing her last name when she got married. But this is certain: her husband, Marco Perego, changed his last name to be Mr. Saldaña – against her objections.
“I tried to talk him out of it,” the 34-year-old told the magazine. “I told him, ‘If you use my name, you're going to be emasculated by your community of artists, by your Latin community of men, by the world.' But Marco looks up at me and says,' Ah, Zoe, I don't give a s—t.'”
In an interview with InStyle, she said she had always looked for someone who would be her equal.
“It's not like I've had issues with men; I've always just been independent to a fault,” the Dominican-American actress said in July issue of the magazine. “I've always believed it's my birthright to behave as an equal on this earth and to be entitled to everything and anything. That said, I've had my experiences of heartbreak when it comes to choosing partners who wanted to be equals, but didn't have the ability to reciprocate the respect.”
