Zoe Saldana in Cosmo for Latinas September 2014: My Kids Will Speak Spanish & English

Posted Wednesday August 6, 2014 9:58 AM GMT

She’s been all over the place with “Guardians of the Galaxy” promotions and her pregnancy news, and now Zoe Saldana is gracing the cover of Cosmopolitan for Latinas September 2014 issue.

After posing in a Julien MacDonald dress, the “Avatar” babe opened up about her children speaking Spanish and what she finds sexy in a man.

Check out highlights from Zoe’s interview below and for more, head over to Cosmo for Latinas!

On whether her children with husband Marco Perego will learn to speak Spanish:
“Of course [our children] will speak the languages that we speak; my sisters and I grew up learning French and speaking English and Spanish, and because of that, we’re able to understand Italian and Portuguese. But I’m going to have to make a conscious effort to speak Spanish to my children, because I speak Spanglish.”

On loving her age:
“At 35, you make better choices in men or partners, divorce people and situations that are not right for you, and learn to say ‘no’ with a smile.”

On what makes a man sexy:
“A man who has a natural respect for women – I don’t want a man who worships me: Stay away from those. Worshipping doesn’t count as really seeing me. I like men who work with women, are challenged by women, learn from women.”

On the most essential quality for a good sex life:
“To be uninhibited. I’m not talking about bringing in a third person or watching porn all night: That’s what leads people to believe they are amazing in bed when they’re the worst ever. Pornography is not sex education – it’s the opposite! Don’t allow insecurities to close you off. Be creative.”

On how being Latina affects her relationships:
“It’s one of the biggest factors about me: the fire, the passion, the “in your face” quality. I’m not going to say, ‘Whatever you want, whatever you say.’ I’ll say, ‘You know what I think? I feel this.’”

On debating whether or not to accept her now famous role in Avatar:
“When you’re younger and offered a part like that, you will have a moment of vanity, like, ‘Nobody’s gonna see my face.’ And at that moment you have to ask yourself, am I a celebrity? Or am I an artist?”
