* EnforcedMethodActing: To prepare for ''{{Film/Avatar}}'' the cast playing the Na'vi were put on a trip to Hawaii where they camped in the jungle and lived like a tribe would. Zoe even dressed up as a warrior and wore a fake tail like the one Neytiri would have.

* RomanceOnTheSet: While filming ''Film/TheWords'', she dated Creator/BradleyCooper for a bit.
* SoMyKidsCanWatch: Inverted. She starred in ''Film/StarTrek2009'' partly because her mother was a huge fan of the original series.

* ActorAllusion: She has played Diego Luna's love interest in ''Film/TheTerminal'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheBookOfLife''.



* CastingGag: Playing Uhura when she had played a Trekkie in ''Film/TheTerminal''.



* DawsonCasting: Played high schoolers while in her early twenties in ''Film/Crossroads2002'' and ''Film/GetOverIt''.
* DyeingForYourArt:
** She also had to gain weight for ''Film/TheLosers''.
** For ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' she had to spend three hours in the make-up chair every morning. The alcohol based make-up also resulted in strange green discharges for months. What's more is that Zoe volunteered to go through the make-up process, rather than rely on CGI or motion capture.

* OldShame:
** Apparently she didn't like starring in ''Film/Crossroads2002''.
** ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl'', not for the quality of the movie itself, but for personal issues she faced behind the scenes. She has said "they weren't the right people for me" and did not return for any of the sequels.
