Actor Zoe Saldana has spoken out about her liberal upbringing, and alluded to the fact that she might be bisexual, as she said she accepts the possibility that she could “end up with a woman raising [her] children”.

Star of Star Trek: Into Darkness, Saldana suggested that she may have already had a same-sex relationship, when speaking in an interview to Allure magazine.

The 34-year-old said: “[I could] end up with a woman raising my children… that’s how androgynous I am. I was raised that open.”

When asked if she had been in a relationship with a woman in the past, she said: “Promise me one thing: You’re going to ask this question [in the article] – if you choose to, just put three dots as my response. That’s it.”

The magazine’s cover star, who appears in a topless photoshoot inside, went on to say that her next relationship would probably be with someone out of the public eye.

“Been there, done that, got the T-shirt,” she said. “If I have something good in front of me, it doesn’t matter if it’s a person or a pair of shoes, I’m not going to test something else… It’s insecure and it’s immature.”

The June issue of Allure is on sale on 21 May and available internationally through the Allure app.

Saldana’s cast-mate Zachary Quinto, revealed in an interview last week that he has “only worked more” since he came out as gay, and said he is glad to have opened up about being gay, because he thinks it had positively affected his career.

He came out as gay in October 2011 to “an overwhelming wave of support,” in an interview with New York magazine and wrote a blog post explaining his decision.

Before making his decision to come out, Quinto had been actively working with the Trevor Project, the It Gets Better initiative, and other pro-equality charities, but he said he felt that coming out had enhanced his work with these groups.

After coming out he wrote on his blog that the suicide of gay 14-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer had spurred him to be open, and on coming out, he said: “I had been thinking about it all the time for a while, just sort of peripherally.”
