Hollywood is ‘manipulative’: Zendaya Coleman

LONDON, Nov 12: Actress Zendaya Coleman says she feels that Hollywood is “controlling” and “manipulative”.
The 20-year-old star, who rose to fame after starring in Disney’s “Shake It Up”, believes that most of the people lie in the film industry, reported Femalefirst.
When asked what surprised her most about working in Hollywood, Zendaya said, “It’s very controlling and weird and manipulative. People want to take from you.
“People lie. To people in Hollywood, (lying) is like drinking coffee, it’s crazy.”
Zendaya also talked about the importance of using social media and how it can help create awareness regarding so many things.
“I like to post selfies and fun things that I’m working on. But recently my Snapchat has become like a history class … I feel like if you have a platform, it’s your obligation to talk about how you feel. To me there’s no excuse to be ignorant anymore. Everything is at your fingertips.
“You can’t pretend like you’re not seeing innocent black men being killed. We have videos, and they’re circulating all over the internet. Or you can’t pretend you’re not understanding things about politics or hearing what people are saying who are our presidential candidates. And I feel like it’s allowing us millennials to really take over,” she said. (PTI)
