Zoe Saldana Not Bothered by Lesbian Label

April 6, 2010 (10:22 am) GMT
The 'Avatar' actress admits that she has been labeled lesbian since she was younger, saying that people have sometimes told her grandmother, 'Your granddaughter has a bit of lesbianism in her.'

"" star isn't surprised when people assume she's gay - because she's been labeled a lesbian since she was a youngster. The actress is in a long-term relationship with actor Keith Britton, but admits she has often raised questions about her sexuality because she has always had a "very masculine" energy.

She tells Siempre Mujer magazine, "If you want to punish me, send me to get a manicure or dress me in a skirt or shorts, and I would die. But if you dress me in jeans and a button-down blouse, I feel very sexy, feminine and powerful."

"People have sometimes told my grandmother, 'Your granddaughter has a bit of lesbianism in her.' It's that my sisters and I spent all our time among men (growing up). We were very popular with them. Our way of thinking is very masculine."
