The actress spoke candidly (Picture: REX) Zendaya has often spoken candidly about being a black woman in Hollywood but now she has revealed that she drew on her experiences in an effort to encourage the industry to be more representative. ‘What my white peers would be able to get away with at this point in their career is not something that I will be able to do,’ the 21-year-old said. ‘And I knew that from when I was real young.
