Zoe Saldana not over father's death

May 4 2013, 10:32pm CDT | by

Hearing the word Daddy is like a "knife" to Zoe Saldana's heart.

The 'Star Trek: Into Darkness' actress tragically lost her father, Aridio, in a car crash when she was just nine-years-old and has never gotten over the loss.

She told InStyle magazine: "I know the older I get I romanticize him more and more, but he was very beautiful and very disciplined. It was hard - since I was nine I've never been able to day 'Dad'.

"And I've had a stepfather since I was very young who I adore and he knows how much we love him. But he's not my dad. So when I hear little people day, 'Daddy', it's always like a f***ing knife in your heart.

"And you always walk this earth with that broken little wing."

Zoe's mother, Asalia, moved her and her two sisters from New York to their father's birthplace of the Dominican Republic shortly after the accident and despite initially struggling, she was able to give them all a good upbringing.

The 34-year-old beauty added: "My mum knew there wasn't going to be a protector, a big bear in our lives. She needed to raise us as the mum and dad - and she did.

"She raised three women that are very male. My mind is very mechanical. When stress rises, I don't start spinning. Women like to cry, to 'whip the s**t' as we say in Spanish.

"Like, why are you running around like a headless chicken? Sit down, shut up and think. Men are like that. A lot of them - not everyone. My mum did not ever condition us to believe that we were half without a man."
