Zoe Saldaña In Workout Gear Is "Excited" For Lioness Season 2

She’s back!

Zoe Saldaña is the queen of multitasking—she's preparing for a day of filming Lioness while getting her stretches done. Saldaña, 46, shared a video of herself wearing gray shorts and a black sports bra, ready for hair and makeup in her trailer. "Day 28, Lioness S2 . I'm excited 🙋🏽‍♀️," she captioned the post. "Yasssssss," commented Serena Williams. Here's how the busy mom-of-three stays fit, happy, and is always evolving.


Running and Dancing

Saldaña stays active by dancing and running around after her kids, which helps keep her fit. "Right when I get up, I take a moment to take a few breaths and then I have a glass of water before going to get the boys," she told The Zoe Report. "I cannot live without my family, they are my everything… I have been dreaming of going home to the Caribbean and enjoying the beach with my family."


Water and Sleep

Saldaña's wellness tips are to drink plenty of water and get lots of good sleep. She also cooks at home with her family, enjoying plenty of protein and leafy green vegetables. "My husband is Italian so we love to make pasta with protein and veggies," she told The Zoe Report. "I also enjoy having an arugula salad for lunch."


Respect For the Ocean

Saldaña was worried when she found out the Avatar sequel would be shot underwater but found the experience inspiring. "The water has always been an element of life that I look up to, I respect, but I fear a great deal," she told InStyle. "I'm an island person, I come from generations of island people. It's funny that the folklore passed down about water when you grow up on an island is you're taught to respect it. You're taught to fear it and to admire it from a distance."


Always Curious


Saldaña wants to surround herself with like-minded people. "I've always felt very insecure around people that are just too cool and that have themselves so put together and know exactly what to say and know everything. I've always felt very unstable around people like that," she told InStyle. "I like to be around people that are naturally curious and honest about the curiosity. And when they don't know something, I like when they say, 'I don't know what you're talking about.' My kids are like that; they feel so present."


Action Hero


Saldaña always loved watching strong women in film, and is thrilled to be able to do the same in her own career. "I love action movies," she told InStyle. "When I was a kid, that's what I was watching, not princess things. My idol was Ellen Ripley [Sigourney Weaver's character in Alien] and Sarah Connor [played by Linda Hamilton]."
