Zoe Saldana says her favourite sexual position is ''on top''.

The 35-year-old beauty - who is dating Italian artist Marco Perego - admits she did go off the erotic arrangement at one stage during intimate moments because she was being ''lazy'', but she is now enjoying taking control in the bedroom thanks to her long legs.

Speaking in a new interview for an episode of 'The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet', Zoe - who previously dated Bradley Cooper - said: ''I have to say, for a long time I was a bit lazy so I didn't like to be on top, but I'm really digging it.

''But I've found things that work ... because I have really long legs.

''If I'm on top, if I'm straddling ... why am I stuttering? It's so f**king natural!''

Despite previously working in fastfood restaurant Burger King when she was younger and starring in sever high-profile movies including 'Avatar' and 'Star Trek Into the Darkness', the brunette actress insists she is still trying to figure out exactly who she is.

She added: ''I know who I am. I love who I am. I like what I do, and I like how I do it. I like my mistakes and I like the pace at which I learn from my mistakes. I don't want to be anybody else but me, and by knowing this, I want to continue figuring out who the f**k I am.

''I'm not defined by sex, I'm not defined by race, I'm not defined by nationality, I'm Zoe.

''I could have been a boy, I could have been a dog, but I'm Zoe. I'm my mother's daughter, I'm my father's daughter.''
