Zoe Saldana Comes Out of the Closet

Avatar star Zoe Saldana has come out of the closet--but not in that way.

Zoe left her longtime boyfriend Keith Britton red-faced when she dedicated a speech to him at the Women in Film's 2010 Crystal + Lucy Awards on Tuesday night.

She was there to accept the MaxMara Face of the Future Award at the gala, and while accepting her speech she said, "I have to thank that one special person who always gets buried and overlooked. 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.

He's super bright, and he's here tonight and we're just gonna come out of the closet right now. I'm going to say, 'Thank you.' I tend to confuse privacy with not saying thank you, so I love you... He has to pick me up and put me to bed, try doing that for 10 years with somebody who has, like, five personalities."

Immediately after walking offstage, she said, "He's probably gonna kill me... I think it's good to recognize that (love) even if it's against their (partner's) will. They're the ones that are living with the real you."

Needless to say her boyfriend was floored and flattered at the same time. Talk about leading a private life! We didn't even know she was dating anyone!
