Before flaunting her new baby bump, Guardians of the Galaxy star Zoe Saldana stripped down for the September 2014 issue of Women’s Health UK.

In her interview, the actress didn’t dish on expecting twins with her hubby Marco Perego, but she did address accepting her body transformations:

“My body is less toned. I do look in the mirror and see things I don’t want. My first reaction is I breathe and I think, ‘I’m a woman, I’m 36, my body is changing…’”

“I’m exactly where I want to be. I do feel beautiful in a way that even when I was working out a whole lot, I sometimes didn’t,” she said. “Because there have been times that I was really slender and I didn’t like that I sometimes looked a little too muscular and flat chested –- you’ll never be completely happy, so at the end of the day it’s like, fuck it. Just be happy, regardless.”

Check out her John Wright-photographed shoot below, and grab the issue on newsstands and digital on July 30th.
