Mom-To-Be Zoe Saldana Talks ‘Pregnancy Brain’ And Bizarre Food Cravings

  Zoe Saldana will soon welcome twin baby boys with her husband Marco Perego.

And while two infants will mean double the joy, the mom-to-be recently admitted that her pregnancy has also been filled with double the symptoms.

In an interview with E! News , Saldana told correspondent Maria Menounos that she has been hit hard with two typical effects of pregnancy: forgetfulness and food cravings.


“My husband’s name is Marco [Perego], and there have been a couple of times I’ve called him Michael ,” said Saldana with a laugh.

“I have like Dori brain from [ Finding ] Nemo -I reset like every three seconds.” The 36-year-old “Book of Life” actress also admitted to fixating on some not-so-healthy treats.

“You find yourself driving around bakeries, over and over, drive-thrus,” she said.

“Like, what am I doing?” When Menounos revealed that she hoped to eat a ton of healthy food during her first pregnancy, Saldana quickly encouraged her to go ahead and indulge.

“Your heritage [Greek] is known for its food,” Saldana told the E! News host.

“You’re going to be eating .

It’s really good, and you’ll be eating weird things, like cookies with bresaola, which is like an Italian salami.


You’ll have little mountains of it.” Menounos couldn’t help but cringe at the thought of pairing cookies and salami.

Saldana, however, called the mix “wonderful.”   Saldana, who has become an action star in films like “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Star Trek,” and “Avatar,” confessed that she never planned for that aspect of her career.

However, her kick-butt status came about because she always wanted to be “physically active.” “I love using my body, I love pushing myself and feeling my own sweat and hearing a whole bunch of ‘no’s’ and turning that into, like, a yes ,” explained Saldana.

“I love that…I like following my own path, you know?” With that amazing attitude, it sounds like Saldana is already on the right track to becoming a pretty cool mom.
