Zendaya opened up to Janet Mock for an enlightening interview in Marie Claire's September issue, released online Monday (Aug. 6). The former Disney star got candid about her role as one of too few high-profile black actresses in Hollywood, and how she refuses to let casting boundaries hold her back.
"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 Spider-Man: Homecoming star told Mock.
