Zoe Saldana Jokes About Weight Secrets


Zoe Saldana made light of her stay-slim secrets on Wednesday.

"I mean, I don't work out a lot, but I like to eat healthy," she says in a new IFC "Comedy Bang! Bang!" clip. "I haven't had lunch yet..it's very Hollywood, I know…It's not the only meal you can skip in one day."

She went on to say that all she does is snack and she could go on for days doing that.

But Saldana's physicality was not always something people took as a joke.

In the June issue of Allure magazine, her weight was published on the cover. While the magazine received a lot of backlash for it, Saldana defended their decision.

"It's not the first time that people have said, for such a delicate-looking person, you're very tough. And I think that was the idea that they wanted to get across as a compliment to what they saw in me," she said.

Her whole interview for IFC's "Comedy Bang! Bang!" airs Friday at 10 p.m.
