Los Angeles - Zoe Saldana will reportedly give birth in eight weeks.

The Guardians of the Galaxy actress - who is expecting twin boys with husband Marco Perego - is "feeling great" but constantly hungry.

She said: "I still have a way to go. We have maybe eight more weeks or something. I feel great."

Tucking into a food tray provided by Late, Late Show host Craig Ferguson, the 36-year-old beauty insisted she hadn't experienced any cravings during her pregnancy but had found food tastes better than ever.

She told the presenter: "You'd be surprised - I'm just hungry. It feels good. Food just tastes so delicious. It really does. It's really good."

"Like, I could have the pickle with the donut and it would probably be life changing."

Zoe also admits there is nothing she likes more than being told how "sexy" she looks with her growing baby bump.

She said: "The best thing a pregnant woman can hear is the word 'sexy.' It's like, 'Oh, you think I'm sexy? Yes! I'm sexy.' You know?"

While she isn't experiencing any unusual cravings, the Avatar actress has developed an obsession with TV murder mysteries.

She said: "In the middle of the night I don't wake up with cravings. I've been watching a lot of crime shows, though. I don't know why. Murder mysteries. I'm solving the case and it's like 2 o'clock in the morning because that's one of the gifts of being pregnant -- sometimes you just can't sleep."

"I find myself watching 48 Hours Mystery or Dateline with Lester Holt. My husband wakes up and I'm just like, 'He totally did it! She did it!'"
