Zendaya on a Music Career: “I Don’t Know If I Could Ever Be a Pop Star"

The ‘Euphoria’ star sits down to chat with Andrew Garfield.

While Zendaya is talented enough to do it all, she doesn’t think she could enjoy being a pop star. The Euphoria star shared her thoughts on her career in a conversation with Andrew Garfield during Variety‘s latest Actors on Actors interview.

“I don’t know if I could ever be a pop star. It’s because as an actor, there’s a level of anonymity that I get to have, which I really like,” she said before discussing her current Euphoria character, Rue Bennett. “And I get to sort my stuff, whatever that is, through a character and nobody needs to know about it. Whereas in other forms and other mediums, it’s all you all the time. I like the idea that somebody else, meaning Rue, gets to take on that stuff.”

Zendaya went on to elaborate that although she loves her job “so much,” she doesn’t want to take herself “too seriously.” She said, “I feel like there’s people who do far more important things than we do.” Nonetheless, she recognizes the difference being an actor can make in someone’s life. “I think for me being in service of other people’s healing through my work means that what I’m doing makes sense,” she told Garfield. “We talk about Spider-Man, but the amount of joy that brought people is so cool. Like, to see you guys have that moment together was special, but then also the effect that had on so many people.”
