Newly single, and with a sure summer blockbuster on the way, Zoe Saldana is on track for a busy year in the spotlight.

The Star Trek and Avatar star opened up to Latina Magazine accompanying her May cover, talking fear and heartbreak in her personal life and her career.

"I feel it [heartache], I allow myself to feel it. Of course everyone around me will notice how it made me feel, but I tend to recover very easily,” she said, referring to her recently ended relationship with Bradley Cooper.

"When I lose, when my heart is broken, when I lose a competition, when I don't get something, when something doesn't go my way or I have a heartbreak or whatever… maybe I haven't really fallen in love yet, had that crash boom bam in my life yet, but I tend to recover… healthy and smoothly. And I've been that way up until now. And if it ain't broke, don't fix it.”

Saldana said she sees having a partner as a nice plus, but not a necessity.
