Zoe's Secret Wedding
Zoe Saldana marries Marco Perego after whirlwind romance.
Remember when Zoe Saldana and Bradley Cooper were an item?

We almost forgot too, but thank goodness for Fashion Magazine and their new interview with the Guardians of the Galaxy actress.

In the August 2014 issue, Saldana reveals what life was like after the pair broke up — again — in late 2012.

“I was finally able to spend time without being in a relationship and even though it was a short period of time, it was beautiful,” she says. “Where I lost that fear of being alone. It was bliss. Then I met my partner when I was in a really beautiful place in my life. It was like I found all my answers with him not in him. I was finding answers on my own.”

Saldana, 36, quietly married Italian artist Marco Perego in June 2013. News of their nuptials broke some three months later.

“When you are desired and you desire, so many things in your life start to make sense,” Saldana tells the magazine of her husband. “We both feel we are artists in our core.”

Pick up the new issue of Fashion on newsstands next Monday.
