Zendaya Values Anonymity in Acting

Zendaya, in a recent interview with Insecure, revealed that when she was younger, she wanted to be a famous celebrity. But as she grew older, her priorities shifted, and she started valuing her privacy more.

In contrast to her time in the music industry, Zendaya feels that she is able to maintain a greater sense of anonymity as an actress.

She said:

Acting allows for a character for people to fall in love with,” Zendaya explained. “But also like for my own anonymity and like a life of my own which music doesn’t really afford. Like I think when you’re a music artist, you just kind of have to be — it’s your face all the time. It’s you. Umm and so that’s another thing. That kind of scared me about music — is like not really being able to have as much of a life.
