Zoe Saldana on why she loves complaining about motherhood

As much as we love our families, being a mum is a tough job and we often find ourselves venting about the pressures of it.

And it seems celebrities feel the same as we do! How refreshing is that?

Zoe Saldana says she’s the first to admit she loves venting about how “exhausted” she is.

Zoe Saldana: ‘I love complaining about how exhausted and tired I am’

In an interview with Us Weekly, the Guardians of the Galaxy star said: “I love complaining about the fact that I’m exhausted and I’m tired.

“Sometimes [my sons] are mean, and the moment you kinda go, ‘Be nice to Mumma’ and… ‘I can’t repeat this anymore,’ they turn back and they just do it.

“You repurpose, and you’re kind of inspired and you go, ‘I’m so happy I have little boys’.”

What’s more, the 40-year-old actress says sometimes she feels she doesn’t spend enough time playing with her three boys – twins Cy and Bowie, four, and Zen, two.

“As mummies sometimes we forget that. We’re caught raising and teaching and disciplining and cooking and cleaning and not enough time to play,” she says.

“I think that my kids always remind me when I’m being too boring. They go, ‘Mama, be nice, sit down and play with me’. That’s what they’re teaching me.”

Zoe’s kids are being brought up in a gender-neutral household

In the past, Zoe has said that she and her hubby Marco Perego Saldana are intent on raising their sons in a gender-neutral household.

“That ‘Mom’s the boss’ thing is not going to happen in our family, because that means [my husband is] the fun one, the good guy, while I’m the disciplinarian,” she told Women’s Health magazine.

“I don’t want my kids to look at women like, ‘Oh, god, they’re so annoying! They always come with structure.”’
