The pregnant star was a guest on Bravo TV's Watch What Happens Live last week when a caller phoned in to get her take on Britney Spears' recently leaked, Auto-Tune-free singing clip. Saldana and Spears both starred in 2002's Crossroads. The movie was a bust, but Saldana wasn't about to throw her pal under the bus.
"I’m pretty sure that 80% of our musical artists would be mortified if…they were caught singing without Auto-Tune,” she said, adding that the caller's comment was "mean."
“I have a huge amount of respect for Britney Spears,” Saldana added. "I’ve always said this, and I will always continue to say it: She was the one big, big celebrity that I met, when I started to work in Hollywood, who really was humble. Whatever was going on in her mind or in her world, it was never about hating her neighbor.”
Watch the clip below to see Saldana call out those who used to "diss" her former costar. Haters gonna hate, but this gal is a class act. (PopCrush)
