Zoe Saldana hasn't thrown in the towel just yet when it comes come to finding love. The 34-year-old Star Trek Into Darkness actress may be back on the market after splitting from Bradley Cooper earlier this year — but she doesn't feel discouraged.
"I believe in love because I had it for so long, so I know it's possible," Saldana tells the June issue of InStyle UK.
But her road to romance hasn't been easy. The actress called off her engagement to entrepreneur Keith Britton in 2011 after 11 years together. She then began dating Cooper, her costar in 2012's The Words, on-and-off for about one year before calling it quits for good in January 2013.
Despite the heartache, Saldana says she's ready to date again. "I'm not one of these people who's going, 'Oh, because I was with someone for so long I need to take a break,'" she explains. "What if love is just around the corner?"
But she does have a type of man in mind. "A badass renegade! A pirate!" she joked. "A pirate who can cry. Oh my God!"
While Saldana is still on the prowl, ex-boyfriend Cooper, 38, seems to have already found someone new. The Silver Linings Playbook actor is dating model Suki Waterhouse, 20. "It's new but they're hanging out," a source told Us Weekly in March. "He's really into her."
