I wish Zoe Saldana would put on some weight for this role.

I know this JJverse is supposed to be an alternate reality or (whatever) but that is still not an excuse for actors not to look the part. Zoe Saldana is just too thin for the role Of Uhura. She is not even slim like Natalie Portman or Jessica Alba (both women have kids). Zoe looks very anorexic and very unhealthy.
And I don’t buy the excuse that she is always been this way....

She needs to add about 25 pounds.... http://images.sodahead.com/profiles/...132377425.jpeg

This is about the 3rd or 4th thread that you have started with this topic in the last year or two. . .and if I recall correctly, a couple of them have been closed. . . you would think that you would have gotten the message. . .

Utter nonsense and foolishness.

Saldana looked like Saldana. Nichols looked like Nichols. There is nothing intrinsic to the role of Uhura which even suggests height and weight requirements of any kind.

Zoe Saldana is an extremely skilled, charismatic actor and a beautiful woman. I'm personally particularly looking forward to not-quite-seeing her again in Avatar II.

Make fun of me if you want but this is a serious matter. All this Hollywood actresses all look unhealthy, they feel they have to be a size 0 to be successful .it is not only sad it is a very dangerous illusion.

Reality Check

Re: I wish Zoe Saldana would put on some weight for this role.

Saldana does not look "unhealthy," in fact, she looks much the same as she did when she filmed Pirates of the Carribean: Curse of the Black Pearl, 10 years ago. She doesn't present the features that are associated with anorexia or bullimia. Her hair has shine, her complexion looks good, her posture is straight. The average weight for a women her height, 5'7" is 125lbs. She looks to be slightly less. She works out, she's going to weigh less than average.

I would say that there's more to the OP than concern for Saldana's health.

It's not.

They don't.

God knows, if normal human beings fretted half as much about both Skinny Role Models and the Obesity Epidemic as various alarmists want us to, everyone would be in a state of terminal panic and confusion.

It's not serious, and you have nothing but assumptions and griping. Welcome to the internet.

Re: I wish Zoe Saldana would put on some weight for this role.

I guess most Star Trek Fans today are into the Size 0 culture. This is so sad when you consider the fact that Star Trek leading females in the 80 and 90's like Deanna Troi from Generations and Captain Janeway from Voyager were the exact opposite of the super thin Hollywood culture.

Wrong again.

We're just not hysterics about trivia and nonsense.

Not on alternate Mondays, anyway.

You should stop criticizing Zoe Saldana for looking like Zoe Saldana. She's clearly healthy and athletic, so her appearence is really none of your business.
