Zoe Saldana doesn’t want her kids to feel conscious of their skin colour
Actor Zoe Saldana (right) says she hopes her three sons do not grow up “feeling conscious” about the colour of their skin. The Guardians Of The Galaxy star, who has two-year-old twins Cy and Bowie and threemonth-old Zen with her husband Marco Perego, wants her children to grow up to believe they are capable of doing anything, reported People magazine.
“My greatest wish for my kids is that they never grow up feeling conscious of the colour of their skin, or where their parents come from or that they can achieve anything in life,” she says.
The Avatar actor says her mother instilled the same positive thoughts into her as a child. “She would always tell me, ‘Zoe, Zoe, Zoe. I hope you like them’ (when meeting new people). And for some reason, it was always to remind me what I have to feel and think about others matters just as much as what they have to feel and think of me.”
