"I like playing a real woman, whether she's holding a gun or a glass of wine... It's hard enough that 90 per cent of movie roles go to men, so when I do see women written in a way that doesn't capture their strength, I feel like saying to the writer, 'Shame on you. You're writing women like this in this day and age?' The least I can do is dodge roles that do not represent me." Zoe Saldana insists on playing strong women in film.
