Zoe Saldana is able to give her husband ''support and love'' because it is in her nature.

The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' actress - who is rumoured to be pregnant with twins - married artist Marco Perego last year and thinks it was meant to be that she met her life partner later in life.

She said: ''We give each other a great deal of support and love but it wasn't because we found it in each other, we came that way and then got together.

''That's what I love about it. I do believe whatever's meant to be will be - but had the universe said, 'Let's just wait, he's going to come into your life later', I would've been fine on this journey I was on just knowing who the f**k I was.''

The 36-year-old beauty admits she feels more ''beautiful'' now she has stopped worrying about her appearance so much and works out less.

She explained to Women's Health magazine: ''This past year I've had to start letting go.

''My body dictated it as if saying, 'Slow the f**k down!'. And I struggle with that. I love to be an athlete.

''I've learnt to listen to myself, so whenever I don't feel like doing anything that starts with 'I should' then I don't.

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

''I'm exactly where I want to be. I do feel beautiful in a way that even when I was working out a whole lot, I sometimes didn't.''
