Zoe Sal­dana doesn’t want her kids to feel con­scious of their skin colour

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

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.”
