2013 has been the year of secret marriages (much to our dismay). And now, one of this year’s undercover brides is finally coming clean about the details of her wedding.

Well, kinda.

Zoe Saldana, who managed to hide her June wedding to Marco Prego from us until September, sat down with Jimmy Kimmel on Tuesday, who, try as he might, just could not pull any kind of information out of her. Zoe did, however, acknowledge the fact that she got married — we’ve gotta start somewhere!

“I got married in England,” the Out of the Furnace actress admitted, after she and Jimmy congratulated each other on their recent nuptials. “Can you top that?”

And that’s all she wrote.

She was, however, brimming over the top with crazy stories from growing up in the Dominican Republic, including but not limited to her weird method of dying her hair as a teen, thanks to a book on DIY beauty her mom procured from a garage sale.

“I would soak my ends with rum, and then I would go play volleyball in the sun because living in the Dominican Republic, it’s always so hot,” Zoe explained. “And then one time, my neighbor, Indiana, came by, I guess to check up on us because my mom was working, and she called up my mom, and she was like, ‘Listen to me. I went to check on the girls, and Zoe smelled like alcohol.’”

So was Zoe in trouble? Not even a little.

“So my mom is, like, calling me, and she’s like, ‘Listen, Indiana called, and she said you smelled like alcohol. So were you drinking it, or were you putting it on?’” Zoe continued. “I was like, ‘I was soaking my ends.’ And she was like, ‘Bye, bye, bye.’”

Now we’re totally tempted to try Zoe’s trick next summer. Ombre by rum? Could work…
