Zendaya (born September 1, 1996) is an American actress and singer.
8:00 AM is her standard wake up time. Depending on how she feels on a particular morning, she may hop out of bed 10 minutes to two hours later.
While still in bed, she will scroll through her phone for notifications and go through her calendar to get an idea of what she has planned out for the day.
The actor revealed to Justine Magazine that she has to find the fun in her workouts in order to stick with them – and for Zendaya, that involves a lot of moving and grooving. “For me, I enjoy dancing and doing choreography, stuff like that. So, that’s how I get my exercise”, she said. “Find something that’s really fun for you. Whether that’s jazzercise or whatever.”
To prepare for her role in The Greatest Showman, which saw her trapeze-ing with Zac Efron, Zendaya had to build up her upper body strength. Speaking to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, the actor admitted that before filming she “did not have” any upper body strength… nor has she “maintained” it.
“So, don’t ask me to do any trapeze if you see me, ’cause I don’t have it anymore”, she joked. Speaking about what the training involved, however, she essentially said practice makes perfect: “It was a lot of training, literally just getting up there and going for it.”
Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar in 2017, Zendaya admitted she isn’t really a “breakfast person” – that’s not to say she doesn’t like breakfast food, however. “I’ve never been a breakfast person. I love breakfast food, just not at breakfast time,” she said. “I’ll eat breakfast food, but it must have some Nutella on it: pancakes, berries, and Nutella.” Nutella on everything? It’s a big yes from us.
“I’m a vegetarian who doesn’t like vegetables too much — makes it challenging!” she laughed, later telling People: “My main reason for being a vegetarian is that I’m an animal lover — definitely not because I love vegetables.”
“I don’t cook. I think I could cook… I can do anything I put my mind to, so I could cook. I just a) don’t like following directions, and I’m b) too lazy. I use Postmates to order food. I can have anything I want; that’s the beauty of ordering food”, she told Harper’s Bazaar. “If I’m having my favourite meal, I’ll just skip right to ice cream. In fact, I get in trouble with my assistant a lot. He says I shouldn’t do that.”
“My little ritual before bed is taking my makeup off, washing my face, and brushing my teeth. I usually take another shower at night because I don’t like getting into bed with the day on me. That said, there is the occasional night where I go to sleep in my clothes. Recently I’ve been an old lady and gone to bed early. It’s not who I am, but it’s been happening to me. I’ve been trying to find shows to binge-watch, but it’s hard. What I’ve basically done is gone through Netflix and found all the shows my parents used to watch when I was a kid but I wasn’t old enough to see, like Weeds and Shameless. I’ll put one of them on and fall asleep, so when I wake up it’s gone throughout the night and is on, like, Season 4.”
