Zoe Saldana Brands Dolce And Gabbana Boycott 'Stupid'

Zoe Saldana brands Dolce and Gabbana boycott 'stupid':

Zoe Saldana has branded the boycott of Dolce and Gabbana 'stupid'. The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' actress insisted she won't be following in the footsteps of stars including Elton John, Ricky Martin and Courtney Love in refusing to wear clothing by the designers in protest at their recent remarks opposing gay adoption and branding children conceived via fertility treatment 'synthetic'.

She said: 'That would be the stupidest thing if it affected my fashion choice.' 'People are allowed to have their own opinion; however, I wouldn't have chosen to be so public about something that's such a personal thing.'

The 36-year old actress believes part of the controversy stems from the designers' comments not translating well from Italian to English.

She told E! News: 'My husband is from Italy, and if I judged him based on the words that he misuses in our English language he wouldn't be here today. It's like, look people, have a drink, relax, it's OK.'

And after the designers apologised last week, Zoe believes the outcry should now die down and people should let the matter drop. Dolce and Gabbana's initial comments appeared in Italian magazine Panorama, in which they were quoted as saying: 'We oppose gay adoptions. The only family is the traditional one.'

'No chemical offsprings and rented uterus: life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed.'
