Zoe Saldana wants to enjoy acting

London: Hollywood actress Zoe Saldana says she wants to enjoy her profession and will never be an "acting machine".

The 33-year-old star, who shot to limelight with her roles in movies like `Taken` and `Avatar`, insists she just likes to do movies that she enjoys and prefer not to think about films too technically, reported Contactmusic.

"I try not to see films in such a technical way because the moment I do, I know it will become like a machine.

"I see each film as a story, so it depends what attracts me to it. I`ve read scripts where they`ve wanted to do a bigger part than that one that called out to me. With `Avatar`, I felt I had so much to do with that character, I almost wished she was a little bit more in the background," she said.

The `Star Trek` star has also said that James Cameron is keen to "maintain the integrity" of the original story about an alien world invaded by resource-hungry humans, in the forthcoming sequel of `Avatar`.

"I know Jim is still in the process of writing `Avatar 2`. I know he`s going to protect it in order not to fall into that category of the `curse of the sequels`, where you`re going after the same formula or chasing that first high.

"He wants to maintain the integrity of the story and allow the characters to dictate what they do next," she added.
