Zoe Saldana doesn't mind getting injured filming fight scenes in her movies because she finds action sequences ''sexy''
Zoe Saldana finds action scenes "sexy".
The 31-year-old actress - who plays a tough CIA agent called Aisha in 'The Losers' -has suffered a series of injuries after trying to do her own stunts but refuses to let anyone else stand in for her.
Sporting a bruised foot and arm, she said: "That was from a kick. These stunt actors are so f**king immaculate. Every bone in their body is a weapon, and he got me right there. And this was from a gun. It slapped me really hard. But no, I love it! It's sexy!"
The 31-year-old star thought she had experienced tough movie sets when working on James Cameron's 3-D epic adventure 'Avatar' but admits nothing was as difficult as the fight scenes in 'The Losers'.
She told Empire magazine: "Even on 'Avatar' for the stunts I was wired all the time because it was predominantly motion capture and we were in the one place. Here, every location is a warehouse, it's a hangar, it's the Port Of San Juan, and there's sun and there are guns and they're firing and you have s**t popping at you. It's pretty cool."
