Zoe Saldana recently set the temperature soaring when she went naked for the UK edition of Women's Health magazine. The "Guardians of the Galaxy" star was seen embracing the magazine cover as she posed in a sitting position with her legs folded and arms resting on her knees.

Saldana looked confident as she bared it all for the photo shoot. The nude cover photo of the actress has come as a surprise to many as she is reported to be pregnant. Apparently, she posed for the magazine much before her baby bump became visible.

The September 2014 issue of the magazine, which celebrates the naked glory, features Milli Macknitosh, Tracy Anderson and others besides Saldana.

In the interview with the magazine, Saldana revealed that she has insecurities about her body like any other woman but has learned to be happy and positive.

"My body is less toned. I do look in the mirror and see things I don't want," the actress told the magazine, adding, "My first reaction is I breathe and I think, 'I'm a woman. I'm 36. My body is changing."

However, she admitted that she finds herself more beautiful sometimes.

"I do feel beautiful in a way that even when I was working out a whole lot, I sometimes didn't," she said, adding, "Because there have been times that I was really slender and I didn't like that I sometimes looked a little too muscular and flat chested—you'll never be completely happy, so at the end of the day it's like, 'F--k it. Just be happy, regardless.'"

Saldana is expecting twins from her husband Marco Perego. The two have been friends for a long time before they tied a knot this summer.

Meanwhile, not many know that Saldana wanted to have babies two years ago when she was in a relationship with Keith Britton. It was reported that Britton was not ready at that time and Saldana was busy with her work when he was ready.

Moreover, Saldana loves kid and won't mind having four to five little ones.

"I don't care, they're just so delicious. I love the anxiety and the pressure of a loud room full of yapping kids. I'm like a kid myself so I get along very well with animals and children. I dig them. I get them. A child makes perfect sense to me. [To me], a child speaks more sense than an adult," Daily Mail quoted her as saying.
