Zoe Saldana has revealed that she gets "driven crazy" by gender inequality.
The Star Trek actress told Manhattan magazine that she was brought up to believe women can achieve the same goals as men.
She said: "It's very hard being a woman in a man's world, and I recognised it was a man's world even when I was a kid.
"It's an inequality and injustice that drove me crazy, and which I always spoke out against - and I've always been outspoken."
She continued: "I love learning new skills, especially those you're told girls aren't good at - like parallel parking. Hey, I'm going to learn to ride a Ducati!"
Saldana explained that she prefers to choose film parts which are good female role models.
"I'm known for being selective in parts I either pick or pursue, and what matters most is that they be good female roles where the character isn't cardboard or objectified, »
