       Zoe Saldana Zoe Saldana at the 2013 Vanity Fair Oscar party.  Reuters/Danny Moloshok Zoe Saldana is certainly a star in her own right, but that hasn't stopped her from being mistaken for other Hollywood beauties. The 35-year-old actress recently admitted that she's mistaken for someone else quite often by fans.

While on “The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson,” Saldana admitted, "I'll be walking down the street and I'll have people go, 'Hey Thandie Newton!  It's like, 'Oh my god, your show on TV is amazing, Ms. [Kerry] Washington.' "

The “Out of the Furnace” star takes the mistaken identity in stride. “It humbles you," Saldana said, about the mix-ups.  

Saldana and Washington may not be the same person, but they certainly are similar when it comes to keeping their private life out of the public eye.

In July, Washington shocked fans when she married San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha in Idaho. The two had been dating secretly for a year.

Her co-stars on '"Scandal" weren't even aware that she was getting married. The only person Washington told was "Scandal" creator Shonda Rhimes. "I bought her a beautiful, beautiful English tea set from Fortnum & Mason in London. I was one of the only people who knew about the wedding beforehand, so that's why."

Saldana was equally private about her marriage in June to Marco Perego.

“It was super-small but very romantic and beautiful,” a source told Us Weekly.

Saldana and Perego wed in London. Though they went public with their relationship in May while vacationing in Capri, they've “known each other for a long time,” the source says.
