We have only one word to describe Zendaya, and that she’s a a true SUPERSTAR.
As an actress, Emmy winner, fashion icon and given her level of fame at only 24-years-old, some of her fans might assume she’s always been comfortable being in the public, having also starting young in the acting business. But quite the contrary, in a recent interview story for GQ, Zendaya opens up about overcoming her childhood shyness.
Having been a naturally shy child this journey to fame and success didn’t happen overnight, as the interview reveals Zendaya’s parents sought counsel on how to address her shyness when she was a kid.
“In this industry, I had to learn how to do small talk and stuff, because I guess I would kind of come off cold to people because I didn’t really know how to start conversation,” Zendaya tells the publication for its February issue. “I remember my stylist was like, ‘You come off kind of cold. People think you’re mean because you don’t talk,’ when really I just was too nervous.”
But as time went on, The Greatest Showman actress became more and more comfortable with speaking out as she learns along the way.
