Does Zoe Saldana like to explore both frontiers?

The ”Star Trek Into Darkness” star hinted that she might be bisexual in an interview with Allure. Zoe says she might “end up with a woman raising my children … that’s how androgynous I am!”

Did Saldana just come out as bi, or does she just mean she plans to have a nanny? And what does androgyny have to do with anything? It’s unclear — she refuses to say whether she’s ever had a romantic relationship with another woman.

In most ways, though, she’s more than happy to share. Saldana poses nude for the Allure story, which also trumpets her weight (115 pounds) across the  cover.

Saldana also addressed the criticism she’s faced for the upcoming film in which she plays Nina Simone, a musician with significantly darker skin than hers. ”Let me tell you, if Elizabeth Taylor can be Cleopatra, I can be Nina — I’m sorry,” she says.

There is at least one person who doesn’t need convincing about Saldana. When asked if he’d choose to kiss Saldana or co-star Alice Eve, Enterprise chief engineer Simon “Scotty” Pegg told Metro, “That’s not a choice any man could make. They’re both as gorgeous as each other. They come in and everyone is just like, ‘WOW.’”
