Zoe Saldana
is a no BS kind of woman!

The "Center Stage" star covers the August issue of Marie Claire, where she opens up about her failed relationships and meeting Mr. Right.

Saldana -- who married Marco Perego in 2013 -- has had a few high profile past relationships. The actress was previously engaged to businessman Keith Britton and dated Bradley Cooper before saying "I do" to Perego.

But, the brunette beauty doesn't care if she's "cool" with her exes -- telling the mag that when she breaks up with someone, they are completely cut from her life!

"I have been in relationships where a man has disrespected me, and I don't need to be friends with that man anymore," Saldana tells the mag.

"I don't want to be the one going, 'I'm cool, because I'm friends with all my exes.' There's a reason why you're called an ex. I crossed you off my list. Moving on. You cross a line, you need to know that you're going to walk this earth knowing that there's an individual who has no respect for you."


When it comes to relationships, it definitely sounds like Zoe is a woman who knows what she wants. So what's the most important thing she's learned?

"Not to settle. If you're not happy with a person, leave. And wait until you find that one person who makes you feel good about yourself every single day and is not expecting you to change, but to grow," she reveals.

The 36-year-old also tells the mag that when she met her Italian artist hubby, she "just knew."

"I don't do the ABCs. I do what my heart says, what my heart feels. So from the moment I met my husband, we were together. We knew," she explains.

It's great that Saldana is so confidant in herself -- what do you think about her candid comments?
