What's tougher than an action scene for AVATAR's Zoe Saldana? Love scenes with actors she calls 'pricks'.
Zoe Saldana once again takes on a strong female action role in the graphic novel adaption of THE LOSERS opening April 23rd. The Bronx native tells CineMovie love scenes are no walk in the park when you don't get along with the actor. In THE LOSERS, Zoe is Aisha, a beautiful operative who hires the double crossed elite Special Forces team to take down the CIA boss who sabatoged their mission. Aisha sets her sights on their leader Colonel Clay played by the Watchmen's Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Grey's Anatomy) and seduces him. Aisha and Clay's first date is a fight scene in which they test each other's prowess but they make up later with a hot and heavy love scene.
The all-out fight scene between Zoe and Jeffrey was a challenge for THE LOSERS stars who admit hurting each other in the process. According to Zoe, "there were a couple of moments where I'd look at him and be like 'did I hit you hard in the head' or he would look at me and be like 'did I slam you really hard? Ah, yeah!'
When it came to the sexy scenes, there were no punches or blows between the AVATAR actress and Grey's Anatomy's break out movie star but Zoe reveals getting physical with someone while naked is certainly a vulnerability that rivals a fight scene especially when the other party is a 'prick.'
"The love scenes are like any fight scenes. It helps when you get along with the actors. It helps that Jeffrey was such a gentleman and so respectful. Trust me... as a woman, try doing that with a freakin' prick. Been there. It's not a good day at work. You're the only one that's naked and you have to act like you're not aware that you're naked. And not only that, you have to flip your hair and have an orgasm."
Jeffrey raises his hands in delight with a mission accomplished look as Zoe finishes her sentence about orgasms. Jeffrey also had a 'rough day' on the job during the sex scenes. "The love scene...yeah that was hard. I had a rough day that day. I need another take. Just one more Sylvain (director). I don't feel like she flipped her hair right on that one. Kidding aside, Jeffrey admits "the fight was much harder. The love scene man...bring that on. Zoe Saldana sitting on my lap naked...yeah rough."
Luckily for Zoe, she didn't have to deal with any real losers for THE LOSERS but she feared being one if she didn't pull her own weight among the largely male cast. "I worked twice as hard as a women to prove herself. I really wanted to impress the guys."
Zoe Saldana has already proven herself a Hollywood favorite with three high-profile films in 2010. First with the record-breaking Avatar and two back to back releases in April. Zoe stars in the comedy DEATH AT A FUNERAL April 16 with Chris Rock and then returns to butt-kicking form in the action-packed THE LOSERS set for wide release April 23rd.
Which previous co-star is Zoe referring to as a "prick? We're clueless. What do you think? Post your comments below.
