Zendaya is ‘totally down for a new normal’ following pandemic

Zendaya is “totally down” for changing her lifestyle in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic as long as it keeps people “safe and healthy”.

The actress reflects on the state of the world in an interview with her Dune co-star Timothee Chalamet for Elle magazine, during which she opens up on the changes she’s experienced amid the coronavirus crisis.

“I love traveling. I don’t feel super-safe traveling all over the place quite yet, but I can’t wait to get back to it,” she explains. “I love being able to visit different places. I think that’s one of the beautiful parts of our job… I try to find as many museums and educational tours as I can!

“I do miss being able to actually go to the movies. But you know what? All of that can wait,” insists the 24-year-old. “I think that things are going to stay different for quite a long time. We’re probably going to have a new normal to keep people safe and healthy, which I’m totally down for.”

During such a challenging time, the Euphoria star also speaks about what gives her “hope” in the world today and admits it’s the “really young kids” she turns to for inspiration.

“There is so much hope in young people, and when I say young people, I do mean myself — people my own age — but I also mean younger,” she says. “These really young kids are so smart and have such a clear understanding and plan for how they want this world to change. Even my little nieces!

“They are so aware… We have discussions about (the world). They know what’s up, and they want to be part of that change.”
