London: Actress Zoe Saldana has been turned off acupuncture after her last session left her with an ear infection.

The `Avatar` star, who had a series of small needles inserted into her ear to help improve her flow of energy, said her curious nature caused her to fiddle with the pins and she ended up needing further medical treatment, reported Conatctmusic.

"I`ve had it done by my ear... And it does nothing because all I kept doing was, I was shooting a movie in New York, and I was walking and waiting for a traffic light to change and I just kept pressing on it (the needle) really hard and it got infected."
