American actress Zendaya, grabbing attention with her role in the movie, ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ appeared on the cover of InStyle’s September issue, and told about how she copes with the pandemic mentally within the cover story.
For the issue, the young actress dressed in a series of outfits all from black designers.
The ‘Euphoria’ actress said when she was asked about how she feels these days:
“I genuinely don’t know how I’m doing. It’s been an interesting few months, to say the least. But I’ve been trying to remain not just positive but grateful. I’m grateful for my health and for the fact that I can quarantine safely. I know that I’ll be OK financially once this is over, but for a lot of people that isn’t the case. So anytime I start complaining, I just stop.”
Then the 23-year-old star stated that staying creative and motivated during this time is highly tough, not only due to pandemic but also racial inequality. She added:
“I didn’t know what I could do to help. And that’s when I reach out to people like you. Because at the end of the day, I’m just an actress, you know? And I don’t pretend to be anything other than that. If I don’t know something, then I ask people who are actually on the front lines doing the work. I’m up in the bleachers, not on the field. So I always think, ‘How can I cheer you on and be a part of something greater than myself?’”
Later, she talked about the lockdown period and the new age of the film industry and made a mention of ‘Malcolm & Marie’ by saying:
“I think this is a new chapter for me. There are a lot of people learning how to be creative during this time and learning how to take a leap while doing it safely in quarantine. It was interesting to experience that with my film Malcolm & Marie, and I’m really proud of that. I also have so many beautiful projects to look forward to. How the world is going to be able to see them, I don’t really know. But that’s when it’s time to get even more innovative and figure out how we are going to exist in this industry with this new world.”
And then, Zendaya opened up about her ‘anxiety’ and said that she doesn’t have a “key” to control it.
