Zoe Saldana has revealed she was shocked, but not upset, when pop icon Britney Spears let slip the actress was pregnant with twins before she had shared the news publicly.
Appearing on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the ‘Avatar’ actress explained exactly what happened.
“We were on the same flight from L.A. to New York and we just talked for the duration of the flight.” Saldana told talkshow host Andy.
“She has two boys, I was having twins – and we had a beautiful talk. And I forgot – it never even occurred to me to not to say anything.”
“We weren’t trying to hide it, we were just trying to be discreet.”
So when asked by Entertainment Tonight if she and Zoe had any plans to work together again after 2002’s ‘Crossroads’, Britney innocently said “who knows?”
“That’s a very good idea. But she’s pregnant with twins right now. So I’m sure she’s got a huge future ahead of her.”
Taking the incident in her stride, Zoe further explained “the way that it happened was so innocent that I never even thought of holding her accountable for anything.”
“She was just being Britney. I love her. I don’t mean that in a negative way, I mean that in the way that she lives her life in such truth.”
Asked if the pair had run into each other to discuss the incident Saldana said no.
“But I’m pretty sure we will. We will.”
Watch the clip below:
Zoe and Britney worked together back in 2002, co-starring in Spears’ first feature film ‘Crossroads’.
The movie tells the story of three girls who, upon finishing high school, take a cross-country road trip where, along the way, they reconnect and rediscover their friendship.
‘Crossroads’, which also starred Taryn Manning, Anson Mount, Justin Long, Dan Ackroyd and Kim Cattrall, was shot on location in Baton Rouge and Hammond, Louisiana, back in 2001.
The film was a huge box office success and grossed over $61.1 million worldwide in three months.
