Zoe Saldaña stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live this week and delved into her childhood and the overall skepticism she had as a kid. During her conversation with the late-night talk show host, Saldaña describes to Jimmy what it was like being raised by her hippy mom in the Dominican Republic.
The Avatar actress hearkened back to her days on the island and raised eyebrows as she compared the Christmas celebration in DR and America, noting that Jesus Christ was not born in December:
I don’t know if it’s according to when baby Jesus was born. Some people believe that he was born in December. Other people believe he was born in January. But in reality he was actually born in March. [...] They didn’t have the same calendar. Their year was shorter so that meant that they based their year on the lunar, moon positions.
Tune into their conversation in the video up top, where she also talks about “Santa” visiting baby Jesus…
