"[I'm] creating a very strong platform: We asked our families for help," Zoe told Wonderwall.com at the 26th Annual GLAAD Media Awards Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, Calif. on March 21. "I'm moving my parents from New York and moving [my husband's] parents from Italy. I have some pretty arduous months coming up -- it's not just one film: I have to do four films back-to-back."

Zoe says she and Marco, both 36, are glad their sons Cy and Bowie have supportive grandparents who are willing and able to help. "I don't want to miss out and I don't want them to miss out. We want to be sure that they're going to be okay," she explains, adding that she feels lucky that they have the means to bring their families together like this. "I know there are a lot of families that cannot afford to do that and don't have that luxury and privilege."
The "Guardians of the Galaxy" star is also making a point to ask for support at work. "I'm creating a really solid platform not only asking for help from my family, but also asking for help from my bosses. I've been talking to all of my producers and sort of letting them understand if this [is something they want]," she says, pointing to herself, "then the whole thing has to come with me."

She hopes that by insisting on bringing her babies to work, she can change attitudes in her industry. "I think that we have to, as women, start educating our work force in terms of what we need. We can't stop working and we can't continue to believe that the moment a woman has a child she's dead to the world, she invisible, she's a nuisance, she's not sexy, she's not able to do anything. Yes we are," says Zoe, who's previously said her children will learn to speak Spanish and Italian like their parents.
"You need to help us and you need to provide the tools for us to still get what we want. We're workaholics. When we're not working out there, guess what? We're working at home," she adds. "We can do anything and we just have to continue telling ourselves that. We have to continue telling the world, 'Accommodate for me because I matter and I can't just be pulled out.'

"This is a part of life, people. If it wasn't for our wombs, none of ya'll would be here!"
Like new mom Eva Mendes, who's said she loves to read the comments other moms leave on popular parenting site BabyCenter.com, Zoe has also found camaraderie and support from other new parents online. "The internet really helps because it unites all of us mommies talking about our issues and our fears," she says. "It really consoles us in a lot of ways."
