Zoe Saldana and her husband have "absolute transparency".
The ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ star believes the secret to her successful relationship with Marco Perego is their "unconditional support" for each other.
She said: "We plan everything together – that way nobody feels slighted. We’re unconditional with each other: unconditionally supportive of each other’s careers, and professions, and desires, and goals. But we can only be this by having absolute transparency.
"When we hit a road block, then we take the time to figure how we’re going to move that block and keep moving on down the road."
And the 38-year-old actress – who has 23-month-old twins Cy and Bowie with the 37-year-old artist – says she has so much more energy now she is a mother.
She told Los Angeles Confidential magazine: "I would think it would slow me down and it hasn’t. I have all this energy now for so many things that I want to do. It’s fantastic having twins. This is something that we certainly didn’t plan for.
"We wanted to start a family, but being blessed with a two-in-one shot is great. I grew up in a family of women. Now I have these three gentlemen who I’m living with, and who are just Mowglis: savages and super playful and spontaneous. I’m encouraged to keep up. I drank the Kool-Aid, and I love it!"
Meanwhile, Zoe previously admitted she "cried every day" when she returned to work after having her children.
She shared: "The first week back at work, I think I cried every day in my trailer. But I remember as soon as they would tell me ‘We’re ready for you on set,’ I would still skip to set. I love what I do. You do need to rest, you do need to have a moment to yourself, but right now this is my life as I know it."
