On losing the baby weight in one year (after twins):

Holy S—! You guys, I had to share this, this is one of the old #guardiansofthegalaxy costumes that I wore back in 2013. After twins I can’t believe I was able to slip into this. @marvel and @jamesgunn don’t be mad, I’m not showing anything that hasn’t been seen before… besides, aren’t we designing new stuff?…. It pays off to work hard! I mean it mommies of the world, if I did it you can too.

On getting back in shape after giving birth to twins in December 2014:

Almost there! It’s been difficult but so rewarding. I feel strong. All it takes is determination! Mommies we can all do it, d*mn it!!!

Zoe previously talked about the impact of pregnancy on her body:

“Your body changes dramatically, inside and out. You grow in places you never knew you could, and you are tired beyond belief. In some cases more than others, your body experiences a kind of trauma through childbirth that is difficult to explain unless you’ve had that experience. My case was like that, everything from my thyroid to my platelets crashed. Thank God, we are all doing great now, but my body was really bent out of shape after the boys were born. Bouncing back feels impossible, but I know it is important as a woman, and now a mommy, to not give up. I am determined to get my energy back and find balance for my body before these little guys start walking, and before I go back to work…my clock is ticking!”

Zoe Saldana: “At the peak of my pregnancy I reached 185lbs”

On her post-baby figure:

I don’t want to get back to where I used to be. I want to feel healthy, and not just fit into the old jeans I used to wear. I’m a woman now. My body has changed forever. It’s softer… and stronger. Your body changes dramatically, inside and out. You grow in places you never knew you could, and you are tired beyond belief. In some cases more than others, your body experiences a kind of trauma through childbirth that is difficult to explain unless you’ve had that experience.

On the complications of her pregnancy:

Everything from my thyroid to my platelets crashed. Thank God, we are all doing great now, but my body was really bent out of shape after the boys were born. I know many of you have gone through this or are going through it as we speak. Let’s do it together. Let’s talk about it, hear each other out, and seek advice when we need it.

On how she plans on getting back in shape:

I started in January with Moyer (her trainer). I was 160lbs (at the peak of my pregnancy I reached 185lbs). I had no flexibility, weak joints, and exercising was painful. We started with just walking, I think I only walked that first month. I did however change the way I eat. I want to prove to myself that if I have the right determination I can do anything.

… says Zoe, who gave birth to twins 6 months ago.

Zoe Saldana: “Now that I’m pregnant, I’m kind of itching for sexy comments”

On her pregnancy diet:

“I’m hungry all the time. I really am. [Ferguson pulls out a food tray filled with barbeque ribs.] “Oh my god! This is really good! And they’re warm! Would it be really obnoxious if I just grabbed the rib and [chowed down]? I have to say, nothing makes me happier than to see a pregnant woman eat, especially in L.A. I’m just hungry. It feels good. Food just tastes so delicious”

On how she used to be vegetarian:

“For one season, I lost the taste of meat. So I was just having, like, lentils and quinoa. But then there was a bad night where I had a little too much to drink and I ended up at In-N-Out. You trick yourself, working in Hollywood. You trick yourself, going, ‘That burger’s disgusting. That burger’s awful.’ But now that [I’m] pregnant, [I’m] like, ‘I can eat all this together, at the same time. Like, I can have the pickle with the donut, and it would probably be life-changing.’”

On wanting to feel “sexy”:

“People think that they’re not supposed to compliment pregnant women. The best thing a pregnant women can hear is the word ‘sexy.’ It’s like, ‘Oh, you think I’m sexy? Yes! I’m sexy.’ Usually, I’m such an activist for women’s rights and everything. I’m like, ‘Excuse me, do not objectify me,’ or whatever. But now that I’m pregnant, I’m kind of itching for sexy comments, like compliments. Not getting picked up, because my husband will kill you. But like, you know, ‘Your wife is looking really hot.’ We like that.”

… says Zoe, who is 7 months pregnant with twins.

Zoe Saldana Brings the Quote of the Day

Her advice for women:

“It’s important to not have women be afraid of you, to accept your mortality and your aging so that you can be a better mentor for up and coming women. Whenever these young women come and they just want to take everything all at once, just because they’re younger and their asses are harder and plumper, you kind of go, ”Child, sit down. Yes, you’re beautiful but listen to these 1, 2, 3s.’ 1. Don’t hike up your skirt too much. 2. I’m pretty sure you’re intelligent so act like it. 3. Read a book.”

… says Zoe in Fashion Magazine.
