Zendaya is a ‘Rebel with a Cause’ for Marie Claire’s September 2018 Issue!

Actress, singer and style star Zendaya is on the cover of Marie Claire‘s September 2018 issue and she’s gorgeous.

The 21-year old star talks to the magazine about stepping out of her comfort zone for her career, creating opportunities for more actresses of color and so much more.

Read excerpts below.

On how Scandal‘s Olivia Pope liberated her to make her own decisions: “I call it my Olivia Pope gut. I just had to be in tune with that and be like, ‘Listen, whatever feels right, go after that.’ There’s something liberating about making decisions for yourself.”

On stepping out of her comfort zone, from Disney to feature films:“I’m coming from this very different world of Disney. Having been consistently on a TV show, I felt stagnant. Not having that anymore, I am being seen as a real actress, doing what makes me feel pushed and motivated. I don’t necessarily think comfort is always the best place to live in. I’ve really found the power in just doing what makes me happy.”

On creating opportunities for more actresses of color: “What’s important to me is knowing we [Yara ShahidiAmandla Steinberg] are not the only black girls in the industry. We kind of have been painted as the face, and that’s not the truth. It’s important to have a conversation where we are opening the door to our peers and more black women who don’t necessarily look like us.”
