Do you know that out of the five highest-earning movies of all time, Zoe Saldaña has appeared in three? That must have resulted in earning Zoe a lot of wealth. All millionaires spend their dollars in different ways, especially celebrities. What must Zoe be spending on then? Do you have any idea? If not, we have got a ton of information regarding the same for you.

The ‘Avatar’ star is rightly called the ‘box office queen’ of Hollywood. Having appeared in 3 out of 5 movies that have grossed over $2 billion all over the world, Zoe Saldaña has made herself a fortune of 35 million dollars. Right from playing the indigenous hunter Neytiri in ‘Avatar’ to Gamora in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, Saldaña has time and again proved her mettle as an actress and a professional. Do you know that Saldaña initially started her career as a part of the theatre group ‘Faces’ and that she was trained in ballet?

Her first film role came with ‘Center Stage’ in the year 2000 where she played ballet student Eva Rodriguez, where her dance training proved useful. She then appeared in a lot of movies, right from ‘Crossroads’, ‘Drumline’ with Nick Cannon, ‘Constellation, Guess Who’ with Ashton Kutcher to ‘Blackout’, a television film and ‘Vantage Point’, an action thriller in which she had a supporting role as Angie Jones.

She also played Anamaria, a pirate wanting to confront Jack Sparrow for stealing her ship, in ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl’. Zoe’s breakthrough came in 2009. She shot to fame in 2009 with two high profile roles, one as a translator and communications officer Nyota Uhura in Star Trek, which grossed nearly 385.7 million dollars worldwide and second as Neytiri in Avatar, which was the first film ever to gross more than 2 billion dollars worldwide and since then, she hasn’t looked back.

Saldaña’s character was an all-CG character and it marked a rare occurrence when she won the Saturn Award for Best Actress for it. Her dedication to her profession is visible through the fact that Zoe chose to portray the role of Gamora with the makeup for the character rather than using CGI.

It is often said that despite giving so many box office hits, Zoe was always underpaid and that's why her net worth is comparatively less than other female stars. However, Zoe has always maintained that her love for films and acting has always been above the money that she makes through them. Surprisingly, acting isn't the only way Zoe has amassed her net worth.

She also earns a lot through brand deals, TV production deals and yes, her very own entrepreneurial venture BESE, of which she is the founder, CEO and editor-in-chief. She is very family centred and is mother to three beautiful kids with husband Marco Perego Saldaña, twins born in November 2014 and a third son born in February 2017.

    Zoe bought a home in Beverly Hills in 2016 that reportedly cost a whopping 8.7 million dollars. The home is as lavish as its price suggests, with six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, breakfast and dining rooms, a downstairs family room and a luxurious master suite. The whole house reportedly spans nearly 704 square yards.

    • Cars:

      A look at Zoe’s car collection is enough to show that the actress has an amazing taste for cars.

      Audi Q7: Costing nearly 60,000 dollars.

      Audi R8 Spyder: The most expensive car she owns costing nearly 200,000 dollars. Whew! That’s one expensive car.

      • Vacations with family

        Zoe loves to spend time with her family and spends lavishly on her family vacations. The ‘Avatar’ actress recently posted a couple of pictures on her Instagram page where she is shown to be enjoying time with her family on a vacation in Portugal. The family of five can be seen having a great time riding horses and ATVs.

        These are the ways in which the actress spends her money. The actress is currently working hard on Netflix’s new animated fantasy project ‘Maya and the Three’, which is going to be a nine-part series in which Zoe is going to give life to the titular character of ‘Maya’, a warrior princess in the series. And of course, we will be seeing her once again as Neytiri in the upcoming Avatar movies, ‘Avatar 2’, ‘Avatar 3’ and even ‘Avatar 4’ which are scheduled to be released in 2022, 2024 and 2028 respectively.
