Zendaya is at an all-time high with her career. Becoming the only woman of color with two Emmys at her age, she has achieved a lot as an actor. Her relationship with Spider-Man co-star Tom Holland has contributed to her popularity. But her looks, fashion sense, and her red-carpet appearances have a separate fanbase. To her fans, the Euphoria actress is the epitome of beauty. Often her fans refer to her ‘Most Beautiful Woman in the World’.

This kind of stardom can be scary to anyone, let alone someone in their twenties. Starting out at Disney at a young age, Zendaya is quite used to being known. But the kind of fame she is experiencing now is very new to her. She is scared of what effect this could have on her relationship with Tom Holland.

Even after being used to the spotlight for her whole life, Zendaya is finding it hard to struggle with where she has reached after Euphoria and Spider-Man: No Way Home. Most of all she is concerned with the toll it can take with her relationship with Tom Holland.

Her fear is not baseless. Many times it happens that two stars, wildly famous on their own do not get a positive public reaction when they start dating. However, in that condition, the people involved might not be as affected if the situation were the opposite. Holland and Zendaya are loved by the people as a couple too and the actress is determined to protect her personal life.

In recent years, the actress has felt a “visceral change” in her public perception. She’s being papped more than ever, and the normal life she was able to enjoy while still being famous is not accessible to her anymore.

“After the last Spider-Man and the last season of Euphoria, there was a visceral change. Before, I could get away with going places and getting in and out. But in Boston, I would end up going right back home, because it was really overstimulating. Everybody would go hang out at a bar or something, and I’d be like, ‘I’d love to, but I think I could ruin everybody’s night. Because it’s just not going to be fun once I’m there.’ ”

It is taxing but the actress is resilient in handling everything with glam.

Zendaya Trying to Come to Terms with The Reality


There is a weight that comes with being the ‘Most Beautiful Woman in The World’. And Zendaya feels it too. But the actress has accepted her reality. She has found a way to come to terms with it in a way that helps her gain her mental peace. That is what is most important to her. As she said in her interview with Elle:

“Parts of my life, I accept, are going to be public. I can’t be a person and live my life and love the person I love. But also, I do have control over what I choose to share. You can’t hide. That’s not fun, either. I am navigating it more than ever now,”
