Zoe Saldana has become a household name for her roles in blockbuster films like Star Trek and Avatar, now she’s about to add another one to the growing list when her film Colombiana hits theaters on Friday, August 26!

Previews for the film — in which Saldana’s character turns into quite the lethal woman to avenge her parents’ deaths — has earned the actress comparisons to the one and only Angelina Jolie, a comparison we’re sure appreciates.

The butt-kicking babe opens up about her latest project in the next issue of GQ Magazine, saying:

“It gets pretty boring when all you are is the support system for a male character.”

Now that Saldana has made her mark as a leading female in action-packed films, she has decided to take on some new roles in a couple of marital dramas. Saldana commented on the change:

“I want to be in the small percentage of women who don’t settle for conventional roles.”

We’re just as excited for Saldana’s future films as she is! This actress is surely headed for future Oscars.

Be sure to catch the full interview in the September issue of GQ and check out the trailer for Colombiana below!
