Zoe Saldana’s Husband is Redefining Masculinity

Zoe Saldana and her new husband, Marco Perego, made the news this week, and it isn’t just because they got married. The reason the newlyweds made news is because Perego ditched his last name and took the last name of his famous wife after marriage. Saldana defends her husband’s choice and his masculinity, even though she admits she tried to talk her husband out of it at first. Zoe’s hesitation was that her husband would be looked down by others, especially other artist in his community. Qnet reports that together the Saldanas want to encourage other men to make the same decisions for themselves. The couple understand that many don’t think what Perego did was a very masculine thing to do, but they don’t care. Instead of feeling emasculated by the choice, Perego says he wants to be remembered as the first man who did it without shame.
