While many stars including Elton John, Andy Cohen, Madonna, Ryan Murphy are boycotting the Dolce & Gabbana brand, Zoe Saldana is sticking with the luxurius fashion designers till the end.

Despite Domencio Dolce's comment about IVF children being 'synthetic', the 36-year-old actress believes he just said his opinion just like anyone else.

When asked if it will affect her decision to buy the brand, the 'Avatar' star told E!News at the 2015 GLAAD Media Awards:

"That would be the stupidest thing if it affected my fashion choice. People are allowed to their own opinion, however, I wouldn't have chosen to be so public about something that's such a personal thing."

The mother of twins – Cy and Bowies - has a unique perspective when it comes to the Italian designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, considering she married artist Marco Perego in June 2013.

"My husband is from Italy, and if I judged him based on the words that he misuses in our English language he wouldn't be here today," she said. "It's like look people, have a drink, relax, it's okay."

Saldana understands that the topic is extremely sensitive, but thinks the pair's apology has been sufficient. 

"Obviously it caused some sensitivity, but then again if you continue to follow the news, you see they all kinda hugged it out, so why are we making a big deal about it?" she continued. "I'm certainly not going to stop wearing Dolce, and I'm certainly not going to be refuting when they are adopting synthetic children, however they wanted to say it. I do think things are lost in translation."
