Zendaya In Dune Impressed Everyone
Zendaya’s role in Dune was quite appreciated since this role was quite different from the ones she had played earlier.

Zendaya enacted the character of Chani, a young girl who makes frequent appearances in a man’s visions and controls the future. While describing her role in the movie she added
It’s obviously such a rich text, but it’s so much more than just a book to a lot of people; it’s a whole world that they’ve been able to escape to for years,”

Zendaya revealed that she gelled with Chalamet quite well when they met for the first time. In an interview with W magazine, she said that it was a moment of stress for her. Basically, she had surgery to remove her wisdom tooth. So she was worried that she might smell bad while interacting with her co-star.
I had just gotten my wisdom teeth taken out. My biggest fear was that my mouth would be vile, and then I would have to do a scene with Timothée where we have to be really close, and he would smell my possible dry socket breath.
They had few intimate scenes so this could be a major embarrassment for her. She had a long struggle with her wisdom teeth. She had once posted that she was in a lot of pain due to her wisdom teeth but didn’t know whether she should remove them or not
She remarked about her swollen face on social media as she posted pictures of her teeth and face after the surgery
“Debating on whether or not I should post this wisdom teeth video on ig, cause I look a hot ass mess”

Fortunately, everything went fine and all her fears were over as she was able to shoot in an easy and smooth manner. Zendaya says that she takes it all in a positive stride.
As a Virgo, I hate not being in control of things, and spontaneity is difficult for me in real life, It’s the one space in which I can feel safe being spontaneous because I’m not myself; I’m someone else. There are no consequences
