No ALS Ice Bucket For Saldana

1 min read


Zoë Saldana won’t be doing the ALS ice bucket challenge herself, but she has a very good reason for not doing so.

Saldana was challenged by Director James Gunn to take part in the fundraising craze.

The actress, who was recently revealed to be pregnant and was annoyed at the media for releasing the news before she was ready to do so herself, finally referred to her pregnancy in a video. “Obviously I can’t do it myself,” she said, running her hands over her “baby bump” and smiling, “so I nominate my husband to take on the challenge.”

Husband Marco Perego was then doused with the ice water. The ending on this video makes it one of the funnier ones that this reporter has seen.

  1. What about being pregnant makes it impossible to be doused with ice water? Did she think the baby wold actually freeze?

  2. We have no idea what her specific medical circumstances are, and what her doctor has advised her to do or not do while pregnant. I thought this was a fun way of answering the challenge. YMMV.

  3. Congratulations Zoe and you found a great way to still meet the ice bucket challenge.
