USA TODAY - You can't always get what you want.
And as Zoe Saldana says in the February issue of Lucky magazine, "You always want what you don't have."
Saldana's talking about her lack of curves.
"My whole life I've been obsessed with breasts. I love them. I don't like fake things, but I wouldn't mind buying myself a pair before I die." She goes on to say, "When I hear men say, 'I don't want droopy breasts, I think, I'm sorry, you're not really a man. A man likes a woman as she is. You know when you meet a real man from the way he talks about a woman. You just go, 'Wow, you're a man'."
Other highlights from the chat?
On getting dressed: Dressed in Diesel boyfriend jeans ("I like that they're so baggy," she says), a white fluttery blouse and sunny yellow Chloe flats - her shiny fair tossed up in a makeshift bun - she's part girly-girl, part tomboy... easily the coolest woman in the room. Her ensembles, though polished, are never precious. "I like looking strong," says Saldana. "I don't need someone to open the door for me. I can open a jar! For some reason, dressing very delicately brings out a fragility that compels people to help you and" - here she gets fiery - "I don't like it."
On fashion: "Fashion is art - it's absolute art," she says. "It's telling a story. So if I wear something, it will be because it reminds me of Grace Jones or a flower petal or what. I create these worlds in my head. I live in this constant imaginative state."
On having regrets: "I can give two (hoots) about what somebody thought I looked like," she says. "At the moment I conceived wearing an outfit, I had a thousand reasons. And now that it's done, and I'm getting feedback that it's not positive, I'm going to regret it? I take responsibility for my actions, whether the outcome is positive or negative."
