Saldana On Working On 'Star Trek XI'

Working on Star Trek XI has meant new and interesting experiences for Zoe Saldana.

As reported by comingsoon.net, working on Star Trek XI brought out several emotions. "It was amazing! It was a humbling experience," said Saldana. "I met Nichelle Nichols, I worked with Leonard Nimoy."

Working with J.J. Abrams was just as thrilling for Saldana given her respect for him. "To work with J.J. [Abrams] I just hold him in the highest regard. Up there with James Cameron and Steven Spielberg, they are my idols and my everything. J.J. I hold in that regard and at that level. I feel very blessed and I think 'Star Trek' is going to be amazing. Have you seen the trailer? It says 'Under Construction'? I got goose bumps! I'm like 'Dude! What are you doing?' It's amazing."

The famed Star Trek miniskirts proved to be an attention-grabber for Saldana. "All I'm going to say is that for some reason every man on set noticed when I was working. It was like 'God, I don't know. Was it my line? My deliverance? Oh. Okay.' That's all I'm going to say."

Saldana is impressed by how the predecessor of her role of Uhura carries herself. "She blew me away, not only because of her poise and how good she looks at her age, but how unaware she is of it. There is a part of her that understands it and a part of her that never will. It's not her job. The day that she understands it is the day that she will stop becoming the mission, the alchemist, and she's on her own journey. I get goose bumps just by talking about it. She's amazing. She was just this graceful thing."

Being part of Star Trek means dealing with the unusual. "I had a driver who picked me up at my house and ended up being a stand in for someone on one of the shows like Star Trek: The Next Generation, explained Saldana. "For some reason he had his entire memorabilia in his trunk. It wasn't his car, it was the sedan that he was driving...to this day I'm wondering whether or not he knew he was picking me up and that I was doing 'Star Trek' or that he happens to drive his town car filled with memorabilia."

"Miniskirts"

I feel the need to say something intellectual or profound.

But all I can think of is: Saldana is hot!
