Britney Spears thanks Zoe Saldana for defending her over 'Alien' leak

Britney Spears has reached out to Zoe Saldana after the actress stuck up for her in a recent interview.

An unedited version of the singer recording her 2013 song 'Alien' emerged recently and it didn't cover Spears in glory.

Saldana featured in the 2002 film Crossroads alongside Spears and she was asked by Watch What Happens Live last week about the leak.

She said: "I'm pretty sure that 80 per cent of our musical artists would be mortified if they were caught singing without auto-tune. I have a huge amount of respect for Britney Spears. And I've always said this, and I will always continue to say it: She was the one big, big celebrity that I met when I was starting to work in Hollywood who was humble, and whatever was going on in her mind or in her world, it was never about hating her neighbour.

"She was the only pop star at that time - and I can name a lot of prominent figures right now that today are more famous than Britney that literally got to where they're at by hating on Britney a lot. Because it was cool at one time to really just diss her. And Britney never did that."

Spears then took to Twitter to tweet Saldana directly, saying:

'Truly the sweetest, thx 4 the kind words. Nothing but great memories of working w u. Crossroads pt 2? ;)."
