-This Zoe Saldana interview is aces. “I don’t want to hear another man tell me, ‘Oh you were my muse’. I don’t want to be your f**king muse anymore. I don’t want you to just post me on your wall and look at me. I want you to listen to me!” She also has not great memories of her first major role, which was in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, saying the set felt “super elitist” and there were “a lot of people who were not so great.”

-Well, this is bullshit. The Crown’s Claire Foy  was paid less than costar Matt Smith in the first two seasons. I get that he was the bigger name when the show first started, but surely they could have re-negotiated after season one when she was clearly the lead character (and the more compelling one). I stopped watching the show early, but everyone I know who hung on longer eventually dropped it because of “too much Philip.”
