Zoe Saldana is still not over her father’s death. She is known for such roles as in Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl, and Avatar. When she hears anyone say the word Daddy it; a blow to her heart. The actress finds she isn’t able to get over the loss of her father, Aridio, he died tragically in a car crash when she was at the young age of nine.
She told InStyle magazine:
”I know the older I get I romanticize him more and more, but he was very beautiful and very disciplined. It was hard – since I was nine I’ve never been able to day ‘Dad’.
”And I’ve had a stepfather since I was very young who I adore and he knows how much we love him. But he’s not my dad. So when I hear little people day, ‘Daddy’, it’s always like a f***ing knife in your heart.
”And you always walk this earth with that broken little wing.”
Asalia, who is her mother had moved along with her two sisters from New York to their father’s birthplace of the Dominican Republic soon following the accident. Through all the struggling she still was able to give them all a good upbringing.
The thirty four year old beauty also added:
”My mum knew there wasn’t going to be a protector, a big bear in our lives. She needed to raise us as the mum and dad – and she did.
”She raised three women that are very male. My mind is very mechanical. When stress rises, I don’t start spinning. Women like to cry, to ‘whip the s**t’ as we say in Spanish.
”Like, why are you running around like a headless chicken? Sit down, shut up and think. Men are like that. A lot of them – not every one. My mum did not ever condition us to believe that we were half without a man.”
