Zendaya stuns (as usual) in her latest photo shoot for Vanity Fair. (See the full pic in our gallery below!)

Here’s what the 20-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her first earliest performances: “I fell in love with theater at a young age. I was that weird eight-year-old who actually appreciated Shakespeare. I loved singing and dancing and putting on performances for my parents.”

On making her big-screen debut as Michelle, Peter Parker’s nerdy classmate, in the highly anticipated Spider-Man: Homecoming: “I auditioned, did my screen test, and waited like everyone else. It was important to me that my first movie be great – I didn’t care if I had one line.”

On her aspirations: “I have a billion dreams, and I want to use my platform to help people. I’ve been given this power and I have to start conversations that are bigger than myself.”

Zendaya Talks Her Wholesome Image: 'A Lot of People Depend on Me'

Zendaya looks absolutely stunning on the cover of Allure‘s January 2017 issue.

Here’s what the 20-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On why she’s still on Disney Channel: “Plenty of people are like, ‘Why is she still on Disney Channel?’ Well, I waited and waited for the right part, and now I get to be in Spider- Man.”

On her wholesome image: “I’m nice and cool with everybody, but not a lot of people know me very well. I have a very tight-knit circle…I’m just not a social butterfly. I’d rather be home with my family. I’ve never had a desire to drink.”

On not pretending to be perfect: “There is so much stress in my life…I’ve got family, a lot of people that depend on me and need me. I try to take care of everybody and sometimes that drives you crazy—you want everybody to be OK, and you’re like, Jesus, am I OK?”

On being a woman of color in Hollywood: “I ask myself, Would I get the same opportunities—would I have this role or that role—if I were a darker-skinned black women? And the answer is no. But the real thing is how do you take what you’ve been given and use it to better the situations of people that are your peers, your brothers and sisters?”

Is Zendaya Playing Mary Jane in 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'?

Zendaya is starring in the upcoming Marvel movie Spider-Man: Homecoming, but it still has not been confirmed who she is playing!

There have been rumors swirling that the 20-year-old actress is playing the classic role of Mary Jane Watson, but there are other reports that say she will play Michele Gonzales.

PHOTOS: See pics of Zendaya on set!

In the just released official trailer for the film, Zendaya is seen interacting with Peter Parker (Tom Holland) and his friend Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon) at the lunch table at school. She makes fun of them and calls them “losers” for ogling the character Liz Allan (Laura Harrier).

Back in August, TheWrap cited two sources close to the production of the film that Zendaya is set to play Mary Jane Watson. The role is definitely the most well-known of Peter Parker’s love interests and the character was played by Kirsten Dunst in the original trilogy.
