Guardians of the Galaxy actress, Zoe Saldana, looked radiant as ever on the latest issue of Canadian Fashion magazine, where she shared details about her marriage to Marco Perego just months after ending her romance with on-and-off boyfriend Bradley Cooper before New Year’s Eve in 2012.

The 36-year-old beauty recalled her brief time outside of a relationship to be beautiful: “I lost the fear of being alone. It was bliss.”

However, the single star was spotted smooching the Italian stud at a Star Trek Into Darkness afterparty last May. It didn’t take long before the pair realized that they were meant to be together and secretly tied the knot in London in June.

“I met my partner when I was in really a beautiful place in my life,” Saldana gushed about Perego. “It was like I found all my answers with him, not in him. I was finding my answers on my own.”

The Latino actress was previously engaged to Keith Britton, CEO of My Fashion Database, but called it quits in November 2011 after spending 11 years together. However, Saldana still shared her desires of settling down and starting a family during an appearance on Lifetime’s The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet in April 2012.

Although she remains mum on the rumors of a little bun in the oven, she opened up about her role in the upcoming sequel of Avatar.

“[Neytiri] is stronger than I wanted this time, but she’s also very vulnerable,” she said. “It’s very much her journey and I accepted the job again because I believe the script has her going in the right path. Jake and Neytiri are very much still a force to be reckoned with.”
