"I tried to talk him out of it," said the actress.

Zoe Saldana's husband Marco Perego took her last name when they got married in 2013, the actress has just revealed in an interview with InStyle.

"I tried to talk him out of it," she told the magazine.

She said she told Marco, a painter and sculptor, "If you use my name, you're going to be emasculated by your community of artists, by your Latin community of men, by the world."

His response? "Ah Zoe, I don't give a shit."

The Saldanas have six-month-old twin boys Cy and Bowie, who also took Zoe's last name.
