'Avatar's' Zoe Saldana engaged

Zoe Saldana and her boyfriend of 10 years are engaged, the "Avatar" actress’s rep confirmed to CNN.

Although Saldana, 32, has been with her fiancé Keith Britton, the 33-year-old CEO of My Fashion Database, for 10 years, they’ve kept fairly quiet about their romance, according to Us Weekly, who calls the couple “low-key.”

One of the first times Saldana came out about her relationship with Britton was at Women in Film’s 2010 Crystal + Lucy award night on June 1, the Los Angeles Times reported.

“I have to thank that one special person who always gets buried and overlooked," Saldana said. "I've lived a very private life, and I've been with a partner for 10 years who has allowed me to age, which is absolutely awesome.”

Here's hoping for many more years of the same, Ms. Saldana.

    Human, I guess it is time to sign off. Your comments were very refreshing. There were others also. Hue isn't really that important. People should be together, because they love or care for one another. I hope this coupld has the kind of relationship, that can, will endure. Much happiness for them. Good night all...

    killerbeautiful Zoe is of Puerto Rican and Dominican descent. That being said she is still considered black because Latina is not a race. Afro-Latina is the correct term. I'm Dominican and some people in my family have blonde hair and blue eyes and some have dark skin and brown eyes. And some are in between like me! :) Anyway, congrats to her and her hubby to be. She is so gorgeous and is a great actress! :)

      Hello Mythbuster,

      I have not even attacked anyone in here and just stated my point of things and I get assaulted by all these women in here. Most likely devoted The Bacherlor/Bachelorette viewers. Women who watches Star Trek and late night ab machine infomercials don't act as vile. My point is that these folks may act "nice" and "civilized" on the outside but deep down inside they are full of bile.

      You know I am happy that Zoe is marrying whoever. I mean they stayed together for 10 years. Before they "made it" they stuck by one another.

      You folks who attacked me are such really bad/evil individuals. Oh for shame.

    Still looking forward to seeing proud black people get their spotlight in the limelight, since the days of the Cosby show, everything has been going downhill. Now I bet we'll start hearing how she isn't really black anyways but hispanic, I'd say spare me the bull crap! I wanna see a rich black popular celebrity getting married to another black person (male or female) – this crap is getting way out of hand. This is coming from a black person.

    Its time the blak community stopped worshipping these people and potraying them like some type of role models to young black people,I bet it only reinforces the self-hatred that is now prevalent in the community, how sad!

    • gheezy

      so does your own kind involve idk, maybe white, non-jewish, non french, non-hispanic from spain, non-european, or white? because if you yourself is a white american, then you should very well know that whites come from various backgrounds, so to say "your own kind" is not quite accurate, unless you truly mean "your own kind" meaning your family members.

    Good for them. It's not all about money. They got together 10 yearsago, when they were in their early 20s.

    That was before either of them became really successful. So they "knew each other when". It's a wonderful thing.

    Actually, he is not ignorant, he (or she) speaks the truth. Too manyof these "black" celebrities marry outside their race (both men and women, especially men), that it has become hard to keep count. What example do they set for young black people who struggle to find some pride in their race when they see their role models run off to the nearest white person?? Think of any black celebrity and I bet you that person would likely have a non-black partner.

    It is complete utter bullcrap. This is coming from a black person, it has nothing to do with hate and ignorance, its just an uncomfortable pattern!

    So stan, why are you blaming these celebrities then? It's not celebrities that are keeping black people oppressed by fear and money motivated. Instead why don't you blame black communities, for continuously preaching the wrong things, blame black on black crime for constantly keeping blacks locked up, drug dealing/addiction, or killing one another. Until blacks can stop hating each other, then maybe you'll see a reverse pattern.

    Everything that you think and feel should not be placed on paper. We are not black, white, Latina, African, Indian or any other marker that can separate us from being what we truly are which is human.

    What does it mean to say you are of any particular race? It means nothing. You can be any one or combination of these identifiers, and fit into any social category ones imagination can think up. There is not one adult on earth that has never had to apologize either out loud or inside. No one human is perfect.

    And to just think of a few so called black celebrity couples lets see…
    1. Denzel and Pauletta Pearson Washington
    2. Beyonce & Jay-Z
    3. Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith
    4. President Barak and Michelle Obama
    5. CEO Of American Express – Kenneth and Katherine Chenault
    6. Bill and Camille Olivia Cosby
    7. Quintin and Diane Primo
    8. Donald and Henrietta King
    9. Herman and Otelia Russell
    10. Forest and Kiesha Witaker
    11. O'Shea (ICE Cube) and Kimberly Jackson
    12. Blair Underwood and Desiree DaCosta

    Need I go on? All of these are very successful African American families but more so they are successful human beings. Not due to them being one race or another, but because they chose to have drive, goals, and were able to stay focused on their goals. Only one race owns these characteristics and that is the human race.
