A Much Darker-Skinned Zoe Saldana Stirs Controversy Playing Nina Simone In The Trailer For Nina! Watch & Cast Your Vote!

no title

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?

no title

Who did the better job of playing Jobs?

Although Michael Fassbender's newest flick Steve Jobs has yet to hit theatres, it has already received glowing reviews from critics alike.

In fact, many publications are praising the 38-year-old for his depiction of the technology icon.

While the Danny Boyle-directed film is looking like a surefire hit, it wasn't the first movie in recent years to portray the Apple CEO.

In case you forgot, there was another Steve Jobs biopic in 2013 starring Ashton Kutcher that was widely panned by the media.

On Sunday, at the New York Film Festival, Fassbender couldn't help but take a jab at the Two and a Half Men star's flop!

When asked how he prepared for the role, the German-Irish hunk sarcastically responded:

"I studied Ashton Kutcher."

Total burn!

Regardless of who played the computer legend better, there is one thing we can all agree on…

Michael and Ashton are two very foxy men!
