Crazy-in-love hair models Zoe Saldana and Marco Perego just did something utterly awesome for gender equality, and that is not even an exaggeration.

"I tried to talk him out of it," the Guardians of the Galaxy actress said in this month's InStyle (opens in new tab). "I told him, 'If you use my name, you're going to be emasculated by your community of artists, by your Latin community of men, by the world.' But Marco looks up at me and says, 'Ah, Zoe, I don't give a s--t.'"
