Newlywed bliss! After secretly tying the knot last June, Zoe Saldana has made the most of this past year by enjoying the life of a newlywed. In the latest issue of Net-a-Porter, the 35-year-old actress says she's been enjoying some time off to completely relax and indulge.
"I've been an active person my whole life. The past year have been the only time in my life that I haven't been to the gym," Saldana, who still looks as stunning and slim as ever, claimed. "I've been lazy instead of training for something and pushing myself."
The Avatar star says her usual workout routines weren't just to maintain a certain weight.
"Not because I am trying to be skinny. I just like to know how much endurance I have," she explained. "But this past year I've let myself go. I've been eating a lot of Chinese, pasta, rice, beans . . ."
Saldana and Italian artist Perego quietly married in London in June 2013. The actress squeezed in the ceremony while filming Guardians of the Galaxy at Shepperton Studios in Surrey, England.
"I'm not a private person, but I am discreet, so it felt right," she said of the secret wedding.
And it also felt right to be marrying Perego. She gushed about her husband: "I'm fortunate to be challenged by an artist who also pushes himself."
