Maria Menounos sits down to interview actress Zoe Saldana. They discuss Zoe's childhood and what it was like after she had lost her father, what it's like to be a woman in a business that's so male heavy and in particular how there's so few leading roles for strong minded females.

Zoe goes in depth about her early movies like Crossroads with Britney Spears, Pirates of the Caribean with Johnny Depp, working with Steven Spielberg on Terminal and transitioning from dancing to acting. Maria then explores Zoe's thoughts on playing Nina Simone and the controversy surrounding Zoe's portrayal of Nina.

Finally, they wrap things up by talking about fashion and what it really means to Zoe and what she hopes to still accomplish in the entertainment industry.
