Zoe Saldana enjoyed working at burger chain

Los Angeles, July 14 (IANS) As a teenager, actress Zoe Saldana used to work at fast food chain Burger King. She says the experience was enjoyable.

Before her career took off, the "Avatar" actress worked at the fast food chain.

"When I was in my teens, I had a job at Burger King, which I really enjoyed. Then one day I was in the middle of a transaction and realised I didn't enjoy it any more. I said to the manager there and then, 'Can you finish this?' and quit," contactmusic.com quoted Saldana as saying.

Sharing her journey thereafter, she said: "I planned to go to college to train as a dancer, but instead I joined a theatre troop in Brooklyn (New York) and little by little things started to happen.

"I wish I was the sort of person who has the strategic mindset of making plans and drawing up lists, but I'm not."

The 35-year-old, also said that she is attracted to open-minded people.

"I don't like to put labels on people because I don't like people to put labels on me. But if I have to pick one quality, I would say the people I'm attracted to are naturally inquisitive and open-minded and want to grow," she said.

"I must say those people tend to be geeks like me. I used to hang out with cool people, but after a while I found there were such one trick ponies, I was just getting bored," added Saldana.
