It doesn’t make sense to call Zoe Saldana one of the best black actresses when you are supposed to actually call her one of the best actresses Hollywood has ever had. It’s no exaggeration considering her meteoric rise in the industry. Popularly known as the ‘Coloured Lady’ for portraying roles with blue or green-colored faces in films like ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and ‘Avatar’, these roles really seem to define her acting caliber. She has often taken the center stage in films like these and given more than what her characters asked. The flare with which she pulls off her roles, the ease with which she does the stunts speak highly of her character. And there is no need to mention her guts to take up such roles and wear all the make-up to bring reality to such characters.
Making her debut in ‘Center Stage’ in 2000, she had to wait till 2009 for her breakthrough in Hollywood. In the same year, she delivered two of her best performances hence, completely shifting the tide. And then, she joined the ensemble cast for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and she had to never look back. Her career is in its best phase now. She has proved to be a true superstar. Here is the list of top Zoe Saldana movies selected from her impressive filmography. You can some of these best Zoe Saldana movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.
12. Out of the Furnace (2013)
Amidst an ensemble cast containing the likes of Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, and Woody Harrelson, it can prove to be difficult for anyone to make a mark. But Saldana did more than that. In this film, she plays Bale’s love interest and benefactor. It is her ability to unearth something wildering from an ordinary role that is on display here in this film. The film got mixed reviews but Saldana and the remaining cast received praises as they deserve.
