Zoe Saldana Says Sci-fi Roles Made Her Color Blind and Twitter Isn't Here for It

The actress's latest comments didn't sit well with social media.

Zoe Saldana continues to shock the world with her latest comments regarding color.

Now, months after being slammed for artificially darkening her complexion to play the late Nina Simone, the actress is speaking out about her love for sci-fi movies, saying they helped her realize that she "doesn't see color."

In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, the actress, who has starred in Avatar, Star Trek Beyond and Guardians of the Galaxy, said those movies helped her come to the interesting realization.

"It makes me feel superhuman because, obviously, it's been brought to my attention continuously since I was born that I'm not a conventional person because of the color of my skin or my gender or my central background," she said. "So, I think science fiction has given me the ability as an artist to be colorblind, and gender-blind, and to imagine and reinvent myself and be the chameleon actors are supposed to be."

Needless to say, Black Twitter was not here for the actress's latest polarizing words. Users took to the social media site to voice their annoyance with the star.
