On Dec. 3 Zoe Saldana officially let the cat out of the bag and confirmed her marriage to hubby Marco Perego on Jimmy Kimmel Live -- six months after the actual nuptials took place. And in a new cover story with Ocean Drive Magazine, the actress, 35, reveals why she stayed so tight-lipped about the wedding.

"I love what I do so much, but I love my [personal] life more," she said in the interview. "I realized through the years of being in this business that the only way to maintain some kind of sanity is to protect that which is most dear to you, which is your life and everyone that's in it."

Us Weekly was first to break the news of the Out of the Furnace actress' secret London wedding in June 2013. Saldana and the Italian artist were linked in May, but had "known each other for a long time." 

The couple has been spotted showing off some PDA in New York in November 2013.
