Zoe Saldana danced her way around the premiere of the film “Book of Life” in Los Angeles, California October 12, 2014. The pregnant star, who is expecting twins, was accompanied by her husband Marco Perego.
Zoe plays the lead female character Maria in the movie , an animated adventure about a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart.
“I feel like with Book Of Life, the essence that children are going to take away, and families are going to speak with their children, is that if you are a child that has lost someone, this film inspires you to remember them with a smile and with love,” the mom-to-be says of the film.
Zoe, whose father is from the Dominican Republic and whose mother is from Puerto Rico, adds,”It’s not just OK to be sad, it’s OK to be happy and remember the good times. That’s something that the Hispanic culture can share as our heritage . As Latinos we remember our dead but we also celebrate them, and I’m excited that we’re sharing that part of us.”
