It’s not every day you hear of a man taking his wife’s last name. It’s just not the norm, as much as we’d like to think we live in a fair or progressive society. (Is it even conceivable?)
And that’s exactly what Marco Perego did when he married Zoe Saldana in 2013.
Zoe told InStyle during her cover shoot that she “tried to talk him out of it.” She said to him, “If you use my name, you’re going to be emasculated by your community of artists, by your Latin community of men, by the world.”
Marco’s response? “Ah Zoe, I don’t give a shit.”
Music to our ears. You go, Mr. Saldana! And congrats on snagging a man with a mind of his own, Zoe!
