We all know that Zoe Saldana and Italian artist Marco Perego have been married since 2013. But here's something we didn't know, until now: After their marriage, Marco decided to take his wife's last name. Yes, he is legally Mr. Saldana, and he's proud of it.

In a interview with InStyle for its July cover story, Zoe shared: "I tried to talk him out of it. I told 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.'" 

But Marco insisted. He told Zoe, "Ah Zoe, I don't give a sh*t." Now, that's a real man right there.
