Now that Zoe Saldana is a huge movie star, her days on the set of the 2002 film Crossroads is likely nothing more than a distant memory. However, many still remember the then-newcomer actress starring alongside Britney Spears in the flick, and although she says they haven’t talked in “years,” it seems there’s nothing love between the two ladies.
Last week, the Guardians of the Galaxy star appeared on Watch What Happens Live! to defend her former costar after an unedited version of her song “Alien” leaked online. “Well, that’s mean, because I’m pretty sure 80 percent of our musical artists would be mortified if they were caught singing without auto-tune,” she told Andy Cohen.
At some point, BritBrit must’ve gotten wind of the kind words, because she took to Twitter on Monday to acknowledge the pregnant star. “Truly the sweetest, thx 4 the kind words. Nothing but great memories of working w u,” she wrote. To conclude, she jokingly added, “Crossroads pt 2? ; ).”
Zoe, too, had nothing but great things to say about her old pal. “I have a huge amount of respect for Britney Spears,” she gushed in the interview. “And I’ve always said this, and I will continue to say it: She was the one big, big celebrity that I met when I was starting to work in Hollywood who literally was humble, and whatever was going on in her mind or world, it was never about hating her neighbor.”
Wait, so…about that Crossroads sequel…?
