Zoe Saldana Talks Engagement, Maintaining Privacy in Hollywood

Zoe Saldana was all smiles as she flashed her engagement bling at the Motorola Mobility event in New York on Tuesday. The Avatar actress, who got engaged to her boyfriend Keith Britton last June, has stayed mum about the wedding details — and last night was no exception.

She carefully dodged the wedding questions but explained to Celebuzz how difficult it is to maintain privacy when her job is to be in the spotlight.

“Out of respect for myself and the party involved, I always have to maintain privacy. Sometimes it’s hard when people are asking about my private life, but it’s a part of being a celebrity. Even when fans ask about my engagement, I have to politely say, ‘Thank you, but next question’ and hope they understand,” she told us.

She elaborated a bit more, admitting she likes to keep her personal life to herself and wants people to focus on her as an actress.

While we may not see her candid wedding photos covering a weekly entertainment magazine (a la Kim Kardashian), she promises she “won’t leave fans in the dark” when she finally does tie the knot.

Up next, she has two films slated for 2012 release including The Words with Bradley Cooper and is rumored to be returning as Neytiri in Avatar 2.
