Zoe: Heels a struggle after Avatar

Zoe Saldana has revealed she struggled to walk in high-heels after all her action work in Avatar.
The Star Trek actress - who had to perform bare-foot for CGI 3D cameras playing Na'vi Neytiri in the James Cameron blockbuster - stars alongside Chris Rock in comedy Death At A Funeral.
Zoe revealed: "I did a comedy where I had to wear heels, which felt strange - after Star Trek and Avatar I couldn't even walk in shoes at all, I said, 'what are these?'"
The 31-year-old said she had to be persuaded to try comedy.
She said: "It was time to take a break from action because I was becoming really intense. Members of my team were saying to me 'Zoe go and do this comedy' I was saying 'I don't want to, I want to do something more intense'.
"But they insisted 'Go do the Neil LaBute comedy' (Death At A Funeral). So I did and I had a blast and loved it and it was so relaxing.
"Don't get me wrong, I don't box myself into action and drama. I will do whatever comes my way. I'm just saying that I love hanging from a wire, in the same way that I also love Romeo coming to rescue me."
