Zoe and Britney starred together in the 2002 film Crossroads…
Zoe Saldana hasn’t spoken to her Crossroads co-star Britney Spears in years, but the actress was quick to defend Brit when she was asked about the singer’s recent auto-tune controversy. During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday, Zoe spoke up for her former friend, who was slammed by critics after a not-so-great version of her song Alien was released sans its auto-tune track.
Zoe, who called the release of the track “mean,” said the incident did not change how she felt about Brit.
“I have a huge amount of respect for Britney Spears,” the Guardians of the Galaxy star said. “I’m pretty sure that 80 percent of our musical artists would be mortified if they were caught singing without auto-tune.”
Zoe, who is currently pregnant, went on to reminisce about how well Britney, who was already a major pop star by the time Crossroads was made in 2002, treated her on set.
