The two starred side-by-side in the 2002 film Crossroads, however Zoë Saldana fell into her own crossroads of sorts with the “Baby One More Time” singer back in 2014 after she spilled the new to press about Saldana’s pregnancy before the mom-to-be had the chance to announce it herself.
Saldana recalled how the incident went down through her visit last Thursday on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
“We were on the same flight from L.A. to New York and we just talked for the duration of the flight,” said the Guardians of the Galaxy actress, 38.
“She has two boys, I was having twins — and we had a beautiful talk. And I forgot — it never even occurred to me to not to say anything. We weren’t trying to hide it, we were just trying to be discreet.”
Not knowing this information, Spears spilled the news on Entertainment Tonight a few days later when she was asked if the actresses might reunite for a new film together.
“Who knows? That’s a very good idea. But she’s pregnant with twins right now. So I’m sure she’s got a huge future ahead of her,” Spears had said at that time.
No Feelings of Anger
Even though Saldana was not ready, she had explained that she never had feelings of anger against Spears.
“The way that it happened was so innocent that I never even thought of holding her accountable for anything,” said Saldana . “She was just being Britney. I love her — I don’t mean that in a negative way, I mean that in the way that she lives her life in such truth.”
“I was shocked because we weren’t ready to sort of share that. But it was Britney, so it’s okay,” she mentioned.
