In 2000, Saldana appears in the play "The Scene," in 2002 she becomes Britney Spears' partner in the film "Crossroads," and stars in Nick Cannon's comedy "Drumline." In 2003, Zoe plays the episodic role of pirate Ana Maria in the legendary "Pirates of the Caribbean." "You can't imagine how I felt during that moment of filming," the actress recalls with a laugh. "It's Johnny Depp! I almost fainted when I saw him. He's wonderful!" Saldana also appeared in Steven Spielberg's "The Terminal" in 2004, as well as in films like "Haven" (2004), "Constellation" (2005), "Guess Who" (2005), "After Sex" (2007), "The Losers" (2010), and "Colombiana" (2011).

Zoe has received numerous award nominations, including the "Black Reel Award," "Black Movie Award," MTV prize, and NAACP Award. She played her only major female role in "Star Trek." Her character, a beautiful linguist, wears exclusively short dresses in the film, which Saldana really likes. She simply dreams of a sequel to the movie. Before filming, Zoe met with Nichelle Nichols, who played her character, Uhura, in the original "Star Trek" series. This meeting was arranged by the director of the new film, J.J. Abrams, and the actresses were able to have a conversation. Zoe Saldana considers this conversation to be a very important psychological step before filming.

Despite her successful film career starting in the 1990s, Zoe Saldana's true fame came with the release of "Star Trek." It can be expected that Zoe has a great chance of being in the top rankings of the "100 Sexiest Women in the World" for the upcoming year, as in 2008 she ranked 42nd. Soon, audiences will be able to see Zoe Saldana in another blockbuster film, "Avatar," directed by James Cameron.
