Zoe Saldana says she understands why film lovers are still packing out cinemas around the world to see 3-D fantasy adventure Avatar.
"It has such an impact in your heart," said the star of James Cameron's movie, which has now taken one billion dollars worldwide.
But Zoe insisted the movie wasn't just winning over audiences because of the way it looks, adding: "The technology can only enhance what is already there, that's exactly what it did - we fell in love with this story primarily."
She went on: "The visual imagery of this movie will blow you away, but it will come secondary to what director James Cameron is already known for, being an amazing story teller."
The actress added her biggest challenge was shedding her hometown accent.
"I have a very thick New York accent - that was the most challenging thing," she admitted. "It wasn't the martial arts, the archery, the horseback riding or the fighting - it was that!"
