Zoe Saldana set the record straight regarding her husband's decision to take her last name on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The actress confirms that her husband did take her surname, noting that people assume "a woman has to hold a gun," to get her mate to oblige. She also adds that the name change was a two-way trade, as she took his name, questioning, "Why doesn't that make it in the news?" Kimmel expresses slight confusion with the family's name situation, but here it is, crystal clear:
Mom: Zoe Saldana-Perego
Dad: Marco Perego-Saldana
Children: Cy Perego-Saldana, Bowie Perego-Saldana
