The cover story headline that accompanies Zoe Saldana's smiling face in the June issue of Allure reads "115 pounds of grit and heartache." And although the magazine has been faced with some backlash over revealing the actress' weight, Saldana has no issue with the editors' choice.
"I think it would have been wrong if they were lying about my weight," she said on "Today" this week. "This is how much I weigh. It's something I can't control. It's who I am. I've always been of a very thin frame. I was a ballet dancer. So they wanted to do that. I don't think it was to make an issue of my weight. I think it was to talk about that for a lightweight person I seem to be really strong minded."
