Zoe Saldana Reveals How She Dealt With The Backlash Of The Nina Simone Biopic [Video]

A few months ago, Zoe Saldana was under some major scrutiny  after she was cast to play Nina Simone in an upcoming bio-pic.
Now that the movie is wrapped up, Zoe is responding to the backlash and explains how she dealt with the critics…

Zoe reveals to Hip Hollywood,

”What kept me from getting stressed and being hurt by the negative comments is that I’m doing it for my sisters and my brothers and I don’t care who tells me I’m not this or I’m not that. I know who I am and I know what Nina Simone means to me.”

“I did it all for love. Out of love for Nina, my people and who I am and my pride of being a Black woman and a Latina woman and an American woman. That’s my truth.”
