Zoe Saldana Looks Like Nina Simone For Biopic Movie. First Images!

  • Pin it

A quick photo to comfort you, if possible, that Zoe Saldana is getting closer to Nina Simone’s look while working on the movie many labeled as controversial before the camera even started rolling (there’s one more picture, a face close up, after the jump).

Because, after protesting and petitioning, it’s now official – as indiewire reports – they started the filming for the Nina Simone biopic in Los Angeles, last week. Zoe Saldana is Nina Simone and she’ll be looking like what you’re seeing below. A lot of makeup, a lot of prosthetics, color enhancements, wigs and… well, pretty much all the makeup in the world just to get lovely, waify Zoe closer to Nina’s appearance. Smoke and mirrors, don’t forget it. It’s all smoke and mirrors in Hollywood.

She looks nothing like Nina. Nothing. I find this rather jank.
I like Zoe Saldana but not for this role.

I rather watch a documentary about Nina Simone, watch her old video’s or read a biography than spend one € on this.

Hollywood is such a pathetic place.
