Zoe Saldana revealed that she told the crew on the film that she wanted Gamora to appeal to teenage boys. The actor admitted that she wanted her character to be viewed as pretty. Some media outlets believe she did this as she believes they are the target audience for the film. She said, “that’s usually a thing that I don’t think about with other characters that I play but for some reason because I was going green and I was going to be the lead girl, I wanted teenage boys to find me attractive“. The film is about a group of space misfits who team up with Chris Pratt’s character to protect the galaxy. It will open in UK cinemas on the 1st of August 2014.
