She said: “I have the itch lately. I don’t know if it is after Avatar or Star Trek or because I’ve just finished an action film called The Losers, in which I did almost all my own stunts. I think it’s so empowering and sexy. I love actresses like Angelina and Jessica. They’re very agile, they incorporate their bodies with their characters and they pick women who are very strong. I really dig that.”

Zoe also credits Angelina, Salma Hayek and Halle Berry for opening up more options to female actresses. She added in an interview with Esquire magazine: “Before them, women were just sex pots or mothers. They were never the heroes who saved the day. They’ve enabled a generation of actresses to have a bigger variety of roles."

She added, “If I wanted to be part of a story that is amazing and had a lot of sexual openness, that’s fine. But I am so grateful to know that, like them, I can open different doors for women.”
