Nobody likes doing household chores, but they are a necessary evil that we need to fight every single day if we want to maintain order in our lives. Despite the inherent drudgery that comes along with wiping down tables, washing the dishes, and folding laundry, Zoe Saldana shows us that chores don’t have to be as agonizing as we make them out to be in her most recent Instagram post. In fact, the Guardians of the Galaxy star is getting in some light cardio as she twerks her way through her home one mundane task at a time.

We can all learn something from Zoe Saldana, because her moves are infectious. Her Instagram reel even reveals a quick snippet of her husband Marco Perego, smirking and doing a quick booty pop for the camera. This goes to show you that you can turn any aspect of everyday life into a fun little adventure if you have the right attitude.

Boasting her heritage, Zoe Saldana captioned the reel with “Brazilian hip moves after dinner.” One follower not only confirmed that this is how it’s done in most Brazilian households but asserted that the only thing missing from this celebratory cleaning countenance is a soccer ball. But if you look closely enough, you can actually see a black and yellow soccer ball in the background while her kids are playing in the driveway with their scooters.

We really can’t pass judgment on anybody who didn’t notice this minor detail because something is telling us that we’re not supposed to be paying attention to what’s going on in the background. In other words, it’s hard to take your eyes off the foreground while watching Zoe Saldana’s dance routine, which could only be described as a jovial pelvic thrust.

Zoe Saldana as Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

Zoe Saldana’s look is more relaxed than what we’re typically used to seeing on the big screen, but she’s right to sport a matching black sweat-suit around the house while she’s hanging out with her family. Can you really blame the woman behind Avatar‘s Neytiri for opting to wear something that looks supremely comfortable in favor of the form-fitting motion capture suits that have to be worn on set?

Speaking of Avatar, Zoe Saldana is hard at work filming Avatar 4, which is slated for a late 2026 release. That sounds like a long time to wait, but let’s not forget that Avatar 3 is currently in post-production and due out in December 2024. In the meantime, you can see Saldana reprising her role as Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which saw its US premiere on May 5, 2023, and is absolutely slaying at the box office with a worldwide gross of $743.9 million.

And if you want to learn more about Zoe Saldana’s portrayal of Gamora, be sure to check out the four-part Disney+ docuseries MPower, which highlights the women behind their iconic roles in the MCU. Not only does Saldana do a deep dive into the development and evolution of Gamora in her own episode, but she executive produces the entire series, which highlights the women behind Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Elizabeth Olson as the Scarlet Witch.

You can work hard and you can play hard, and we’re glad to see Zoe Saldana having a great time with her family despite how busy her schedule must be these days!
