She Views Food As Fuel


Zendaya approaches food as fuel and often forgets to eat. "At some point my assistant will try to force me to eat something. I've never been a breakfast person. I love breakfast food, just not at breakfast time. I'll eat breakfast food, but it must have some Nutella on it: pancakes, berries, and Nutella. If I don't have a lot of time, I'll just eat and focus on getting dressed," she told Harper's Bazaar.


She Is Carb-Obsessed


Zedaya loves carbs. "It's bad but because I work so much, sometimes I forget to eat. I snack throughout the day, though, especially if I'm on set where there is craft service," she told Harper's Bazaar. "My go-to is a cup of noodles with hot sauce. I know it's bad for me. People are like, 'Zendaya, it's high in sodium!' but it's what I want to eat."

"I don't drink coffee; it doesn't do anything for me. I don't drink energy drinks or soda, either. And I hate water," she revealed to Harper's Bazaar. "I'm a juice drinker but not fancy-people juice. Like Tropicana or lemonade—not fancy."


She Orders Her Food

"I don't cook. I think I could cook—I can do anything I put my mind to, so I could cook. I just (a) don't like following directions, and I'm (b) too lazy," Zendaya told Harper's Bazaar. Instead, she opts to order cooked meals and have them delivered. 


She What She Wants

Zendaya refuses to deprive herself. "I can have anything I want; that's the beauty of ordering food. If I'm having my favorite meal, I'll just skip right to ice cream. In fact, I get in trouble with my assistant a lot—he says I shouldn't do that. I usually try to ask everyone in the house what they want, but the final decision is mine. If I want Chick-fil-A, you guys are going to have Chick-fil-A. I will order something for you, but it will be from where I want," she dished to Harper's Bazaar. 


She Doesn't Enjoy Exercise

Zendaya tries to avoid the gym. "I don't enjoy working out," Zendaya revealed during GQ interview's "Actually Me" segment. "I tried in quarantine." 


She Exercises Outdoors

Instead of forcing herself to workout in a gym, she heads outdoors. "I figured that I should do more physical activity," Zendaya told Steven Colbert. "I was like, 'I need to start getting my blood pumping. I need to be outside more. I can't just stay inside and not do anything all day.'"


She Takes Care of Her Mental Health

Zendaya prioritizes her mental health. "Of course I go to therapy," she revealed to British Vogue. "I mean, if anybody is able to possess the financial means to go to therapy, I would recommend they do that. I think it's a beautiful thing," she said. "There's nothing wrong with working on yourself and dealing with those things with someone who can help you, someone who can talk to you, who's not your mom or whatever. Who has no bias."
