Zoe Saldana: Boycotting Dolce and Gabbana is ‘the stupidest thing’
Actress Zoe Saldana has said that it would be “the stupidest thing” if she were to allow Dolce and Gabbana’s comments about ‘non-traditional families’ to affect her fashion.
Legendary fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana – who are gay themselves – whipped up a storm earlier last week when they lashed out at same-sex adoption, IVF and surrogacy – leading Sir Elton John to call for a boycott.
When asked about the boycott ahead of the GLAAD awards, the Guardians of the Galaxy star said: “No! Not at all, that would be the stupidest thing if it affected my fashion choice.
“People are allowed to their own opinion, however, I wouldn’t have chosen to be so public about something that’s such a personal thing.
“I’m certainly not going to stop wearing Dolce, and I’m certainly not going to be refuting when they are adopting synthetic children, however they wanted to say it. I do think things are lost in translation…
“My husband [Marco Perego] is from Italy and if I judged him based on the words that he misuses in our English language he wouldn’t be here today.
“It’s like ‘Look people, have a drink, relax, it’s okay’.
“Obviously it caused some sensitivity, but then again if you continue to follow the news, you see they all kinda hugged it out, so why are we making a big deal about it?”
