Zoe Saldana is more than a kick-ass action mega babe. The star of The Guardians of The Galaxy: Volume 2 doesn’t take any prisoners whether on or off screen, especially when it comes to talking about the plight of women working in Hollywood today.

With her hair perfectly curled and swept to one side, wearing a Stella McCartney checked form-fitting dress, Saldana served up a real girl crush moment in this week’s Joshington Hosts (your weekly fashion and celebrity vlog hosted by Josh Newis-Smith). In this candid interview, the former Avatar actress spilled on what it means to be a feminist today, why her children think she’s related to The Hulk and exactly which super power she would use to defeat Donald Trump…

On being a feminist in Hollywood…

It means to be outspoken, to speak with conviction, to speak with love but also to speak with truth about what your experiences are. Not in a way to batter men’s reputation but to encourage establishments that are mainly male oriented or benefit males to sort of step back and acknowledge the presence that females have been having, and the recognition and the compensation that we need having already moved forward.

On working for the Hollywood sisterhood…

There’s a great deal of insecurities that women have about ageing, about working with other women, working with younger women, working with older women that I think if we work a little more on ourselves we’ll be able to just work better with each other. I think that as women we’re becoming a much stronger sisterhood in the workforce because we’re realizing that men have been nothing but an inspiration for us and they should be because the brotherhood that men have and the kind of camaraderie that they have and the way they collaborate and support each other should only be seen as something that we can duplicate ourselves.

On being a working mother…

As moms it’s all about checking that list…‘did they eat? Did they sleep? Did they poop?’ It’s almost like… play with your kids! And if they spill that green juice on your white dress, sometimes it’s good to just laugh with them and sort of brush things off. You don’t want your kids to sort of go, ‘oh here comes mom!’ I don’t want my kids to do that but I do acknowledge that when I’m away they tend to laugh louder with my husband and it makes me a little jealous.

On bringing her twin two year olds to set…

As now they are getting older, I can reason with them and they can sit and stay and then they get a treat then I’ll be able to bring them. And they think I’m related to The Hulk because they love The Hulk. So I’m using it for so many things…

On combating against Chris Pratt…

I would have the power of being super duper funnier than him. I would out humor him!

On using a superpower against Angelina… #GirlCrush

I would have the power to make her fall in love with me!

On defeating Donald Trump…

I don’t wanna say anything terrible. No, because I don’t think that’s constructive. I think I would just give him a bigger heart.

Guardians of The Galaxy: Volume Two is released on 5th May.
