No shade here!
The Guardians of the Galaxy star has been getting major heat for darkening her skin and donning a nose prosthetic while portraying the late singer in the upcoming biopic, even from the estate of Nina's verified Twitter account.
But not everyone is up in arms over Saldana's altered look — in fact, Queen Latifah and Paula Patton are coming to the actress' defense!
At the premiere of The Perfect Match on Monday, Latifah said she was "looking forward to" the film after being asked what she thought about the controversy, saying:
Zoe Saldana can't catch a break!
The actress has been the center of a social media firestorm since the trailer for her upcoming biopic Nina dropped, in which she dons much darker skin to better resemble Nina Simone.
And apparently, the late singer is rolling over and igniting Twitter feuds in her grave — because whoever runs Simone's verified account for her estate SLAMMED Saldana on the social media site!
On Wednesday, the 37-year-old quoted the music icon in which she plays in the upcoming film about having no fear:
The trailer for the upcoming biopic Nina is finally here, but not everyone is loving Zoe Saldana's portrayal of cultural icon Nina Simone.
Ever since the Star Trek Beyond actress was cast as the legendary singer, critics raised concerns with the choice to have a lighter-skinned actress play Simone — whose darker skin was a key focal point in her music.
And after the trailer featured Saldana with dark makeup and a nose prosthetic — people were NOT happy!
While it's certainly not full-on blackface, the fact that Saldana's appearance had to be altered so much to resemble the civil rights activist left fans wondering why she was even cast in the first place.
Obviously, plenty of actors have changed up their appearances to play characters in films — but do YOU think they went too far with Saldana's makeup?

Zoe Saldana is one hot momma!
Though the mother-of-two is the perfect cheerleader for moms looking to get their post baby bodies back into shape, she did have some help along the way.
As we previously reported, the Star Trek actress voiced her frustrations about getting fit after juggling her career while being a mom to her twins, Cy and Bowie. Eventually, Miz Saldana turned to celebrity trainer Ramona Braganza for assistance.
In fact, the instructor can be credited for helping the 37-year-old get ready for her latest ST film just nine months after giving birth. Whoa!
In a recent interview, Ramona shared:
Nothing like some crying babies to get you in the holiday spirit!
New parents Zoe Saldana and her husband Marco could use a little shut eye right about now. The mom to twins Bowie and Cy posted a funny-but-sad video on Tuesday giving us a glimpse into their life with the newborns.
In the clip posted on the 37-year-old actress' Instagram, the couple looks desperately into the camera as the babies cry not-so-harmoniously in the background.
Ch-ch-check out the struggle for yourself (below)!
That is one hot momma!
The Guardians of the Galaxy actress wrote:
"#currentlyfeeling happy and blessed. Wishing you all the same! Les deseamos unas felices navidades! Buone Feste di Natale!"
Aww! Now that's a bikini shot.
We couldn't be happier for the 37-year-old as she's been relatively vocal about struggling to get her body back into shape after giving birth to her twins Bowie and Cy.
Isn't it crazy to think that the Avatar star had her little ones just last year?? Regardless, it seems we're not the only ones impressed with Miz Saldana as many of her fans took to the picture sharing site to sing her praises.
One fan commented:
The future is now!
The first trailer for Star Trek Beyond is here, and it's beyond what we expected!
Written by star Simon Pegg and directed by Fast & Furious vet Justin Lin, Beyond promises to be the most action-packed trek yet!
