Zoe (About the movie industry's typecasting): I don't understand labels. I don't need anybody to tell me I'm Latina or black or anything else. I've played characters that were written for Caucasian females, I just want to be given the same consideration as everybody else, and so far that has been happening.
Zoe (When asked if Annamaria was going to make a re-appearance in the next "Pirates" movie): I don't know. I wouldn't say no if they called but to be honest with you, if they don't, I was in the first one and that, to me is amazing. The experience that I had with working with Gore (Verbinski) and slapping Johnny Dep. I will take that to my grave and I will die a happy woman, trust me.
Zoe (About her life as an actress): You need 100% commitment; you have to be willing to wake up every morning knowing you're going to practice eight hours straight.
Zoe: Being a former dancer, classical dancer, it informed me as a human being just in terms of the grace I guess. Ballet is a very graceful form of art. You also become very aware of your body and your mind and your body is working in conjunction. That kind of helps you in acting as well. It's not only using your mind, it's like making your mind communicate this character into your body so that you can bring it to life and physicalize it.
