Things Got Weird AF When Zoe Saldana Met Her Wax Sculpture

celebedition / Instagram

Zoe Saldana, the actress best known for her roles in science fiction films like “Avatar,” the “Star Trek” film series reboot, and in her most recent role as space assassin Gamora in the “Guardians Of The Galaxy” series. With “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2” set to drop this May, and the Avatar sequel beginning production in the fall, you can say Zoe is having a huge year.

But, something much more important than making billion dollar films happened, and cameras were on hand to capture it.

This week Zoe Saldana was immortalized in wax in Madame Tussauds’ Wax Museum.

Saldana’s mamá y abuela were in attendance to show support and take photos with Zoe and her doppelgänger.

Although she said she was “humbled,” her thank you seemed over the top, like when you get a gift you don’t like, but have to appreciate it anyway.

Among the things she said were “it’s like a dream come true.” Um, no one’s dream is to have a better looking version of them creepily made from wax staring into the abyss with soulless eyes.


She also said it was like “checking something off your big bucket list.”

Come on. Your bucket list is what you want to accomplish with your life before you “kick the bucket.” When my time is almost up, I’m going skydiving, screw a wax figurine.

Saldana: “Hey, statue, don’t be nervous, I know it’s your first time. Just smile and relax. (quietly) I love you.”


Stranger still her husband kissed the wax figurine while she looked on in faux-shock.

In the museum they tell you not to touch the wax figurines, so these two are breaking all the rules.


All in all, it sounds like she was happy and honored to be included in the strange event.

The best love, after all, is self love. But, still, please, get a room Zoes.

‘American Crime’ Doesn’t Pull Punches When Showing The Horrific Conditions Undocumented Workers Face

North Carolina might not be the first state people think of when they think of undocumented immigrants, but the producers of “American Crime” felt the state would make an ideal setting for the show’s forthcoming season. North Carolina’s influx of immigrants is a “new phenomenon” in the state, producer Michael J. McDonald told NPR, which already has a “history of racial tension.” Setting the show in North Carolina provided the opportunity to look at immigration from a new perspective.

The show focuses on North Carolina’s industry and how it attracts and exploits undocumented immigrants in search of work.

The upcoming season of “American Crime” zeroes in on how farms in these states often find themselves competing to maximize their profits. As a result, the industry increasingly relies on easy-to-exploit, cheap labor. These migrants confront conditions like human trafficking, sexual abuse, death threats, wage theft, and exposure to unsafe work environments. Because the workers are undocumented, they are often afraid to report these issues to the authorities, and so the cycle of abuse continues.

Check out the trailer for season 3 American Crime.

Manuel Betancourt of NPR has written a great article explaining how “American Crime” is tackling these issues and, more importantly, shining a light on the segments of our workforce that often silenced because of their immigration status.
