Yet another Dominicana who loves to relax, but this time it’s not by having sand in between her toes and a glass of wine. Zoe told Contactmusic.com she enjoys the kick she gets from holding a lethal weapon. "It's very soothing. You're releasing a lot of power. But you're also testing yourself because you're holding in your hand something that's so powerful it can end anything in seconds and you want to know you are OK to handle it. And, as a woman, I like knowing that I have a good aim," Saldana said.
