It’s not possible to see Zendaya and not ponder about some certain things; what is Zendaya’s height? What racial cocktail is she? Where does that girl buy her shoes? The list of questions is endless and while the starlet herself is the bearer of all the answers, we managed to glean a few of our own. So sit tight and join us as we uncover her statistics.
She’s a pretty tall girl and her slender and athletic frame makes her look even taller. Other distinctive features the actress possesses are, her caramel skin, dark brown hair and hazel eyes. Her . OK, back to the topic of her Zendaya’s height, our girl is tall, so tall that in her teen years she felt uncomfortable about it for some time.
When she started filming ‘Shake It Up’, she was just 5’2, that same year she grew as tall as 5’7. The starlet did not stress out much though, coming from tall parents, her destiny was already decided. Her mum towers at 6 feet 4 inches, just 2 inches taller than her dad who is 6 feet 2 inches tall.
During her growth spurt, the star often turned to her mother who went through the same thing at her age. Zendaya presently stands tall at, 5 feet 10 inches. This means celebrities like, Tyra Banks, Taylor Swift and Blake Lively share Zendaya’s height. The gods of height have surely smiled upon her, but Zendaya’s height does not stop her from rocking a pair of sky-high heels.
In relation to this the star said, ‘I always tell my fans that people are going to comment on your height regardless, so you might as well be as tall as possible and look good doing it!’ Our girl is all about self love.
Since we first set our eyes on her as Rocky Blue, the girl has been slim, so we are definitely not expecting her weight to be outrageous. It is obvious that she exercises, but how is the question. The actress shared her little secret, saying, ‘I don’t go to the gym! If we’re going to be honest here, I hate the gym, I do not do gyms, it’s just so boring. The way I get my exercise is I have to do fight choreo for my show or I dance. I have to do something that’s fun for me.’
The starlet weighs 59 kg, and has gotten some negative feedback about her size. The most glaring instance is when Julie Klauser body shamed Zendaya after watching her on stage at the 2016 Kids’ Choice Awards. It was quite the word battle, between Julie, Zendaya and her fans. According to E!News, Klausner, 37, called Zendaya a ‘thinspo model for your impressionable tweens.’
She then added, ‘You don’t have to have an eating disorder to attend the Kids’ Choice Awards….but it helps!’
This must have rubbed our starlet in the wrong way because she abandoned her usual, cool retorts to say, ‘Do you find this funny? I will write another paragraph to educate you aswell #youreallywannabenext?’
This did not faze the thick skinned comedienne who beckoned her to bring it on. In response to that, the Zendaya we know resurfaced, she tweeted, ‘Now….everyone go look in the mirror at their beautiful body, and love that s–t #thickgirlswinning #skinnygirlswinning #weallwinning.’
That was the last we heard from her on the topic, but Julie was just getting warmed up, probably in a guarded attempt to defend herself she said, ‘I will never stop criticizing celebs who perpetuate dangerous beauty standards for a generation of girls who grow up thinking they’re fat, and you know those public fat shamers who fake ‘concern’ for Melissa McCarthy’s health? Consider me your fire with fire.’
She then added, ‘I’m concerned with the generation of girls who aspire to look like Zendaya. I do not worry about Zendaya’s health or care whether she eats.’
The starlet’s fans just had to jump in and give Julie a piece of their minds, but she was well aware of what she was sparking, in response she tweeted, ‘FYI Zendaya and her fans are angry bc I insinuated this isn’t a healthy look. The end.’ She taunted them further saying, ‘Let’s not fight. Here is my olive branch to Zendaya fans- can we just all agree that 1) all women are beautiful and 2) Zendaya hates Jews.’
We can all agree that her motives did not come from a bad place, but delivery is key.
