Zendaya Opens Up About Having Her Own Opinions In 'Galore'
Here’s what the 19-year-old actress/singer had to share:
On her character K.C.: “There’s not many girls on television who get to kick butt but are also educated and strong. I feel like KC is just a good role model for boys and girls. It’s not gender specific—it’s for everyone to watch.”
On just being herself: “I think it would be worse to post things or say things that are fake. When people catch you not being the version of yourself you tried to portray, then people are like, ‘Who is this person?’ and I think that’s bad. I’d rather just be Zendaya the whole time and have no problems.”
On having her own opinions: “My parents always taught me that there is knowledge in your voice. I could have clapped back and gone off. Of course I wanted to, everyone wants to do that. I just kept thinking there were other young people dealing with the same kind of issue who were watching me to see how I would respond. I think the way we react to things is a big indicator of our character and what type of person we are. I just had too much respect for myself and didn’t want to prove everybody right that’s waiting for me to be ignorant and do something dumb, so I took my time until I thought of the best way I could address the comments.”
