Zoe Saldana "Scared" By Comparisons to Angelina Jolie

But she still loves to kick ass.

Most young starlets would give up their favorite pair of Louboutins to be called the next Angelina, but Zoe Saldana who has been earning comparisons to the feisty Ms. Jolie with her new action flick Colombiana would rather just do Zoe.

"It's scary," she told FOX411's Pop Tarts column. "I wouldn't want to think about it in that way." She is, however, "honored to be included in a group of women that have defied their own gravity."

Like Jolie, the fierce 33-year-old does her own stunts, a choice she admits is "exhausting." She adds, "Thank God no permanent injuries, but I was definitely very, very sore. It's always a lot of work and its exhausting while you're doing it and your training for it."

If Colombiana is a hit, Zoe may not be able to stop the Angelina comparisons, but the actress stays grounded by paying homage to the heroines that came before her. "I have been inspired by amazing actresses that have taken amazing risks and opened amazing doors," she says. "Besides playing amazing character roles they also have an amazing agility to do action."

We think that's just...amazing.
