London: `Avatar` Zoe Saldana claims she and husband Marco Perego have a connection because they are `artists`.
The 35-year-old actress, who has been the subject of speculation that she is pregnant, said she shares a connection with her painter spouse and understand the ups and downs that come with their respective careers, reportedly. "When you are desired and you desire, so many things in your life start to make sense.
"We both feel we are artists in our core. One moment you`re up; the next moment you`re down. It all depends. You can sell a collection; you might not sell the next collection. It`s like an actor - you get cast or you don`t," she said.
Saldana can next be seen in `Nina` and was very proud to have been handed the role of legendary singer Nina Simone.
"I handled the role with the same love, the same respect and the same pride that any other black person would, because I am a black woman, a proud Latino black woman, and nobody`s going to take that right from me," she added.
