Zoe Saldana Defends Britney Spears After Auto-Tune Controversy

Posted: Updated:

Remember that time Zoe Saldana and Britney Spears were in a movie together? Of course you do, because "Crossroads" is amazing.

It may be more than a decade since Saldana and Spears played two young friends road tripping across the country, but Saldana still has her former co-star's back. The "Guardians of the Galaxy" star appeared on "Watch What Happens Live" on Thursday, July 31, and addressed Britney Spears' recent "Alien" Auto-Tune controversy. When asked by a fan calling in to the show if she had heard the leaked song without Auto-Tune, Saldana immediately responded, "Well, that's mean because I'm pretty sure that 80 percent of our musical artists would be mortified if they were caught singing without Auto-Tune."

The actress went on to defend Spears by saying how humble she was when they first met. "I have a huge amount of respect for Britney Spears," Saldana added. "I do believe that people and children gravitate to good energy, and she's definitely an abundance of that." William Orbit, the producer of "Alien," also defended the pop star last month when the track leaked, saying that it was a vocal warm-up and not the final take.

We can't blame Saldana for standing up for Spears. After all, how could you not support someone you sang "I Love Rock 'N' Roll" with to a crowded bar?
