Zendaya Coleman is in fact a grown woman
About a week or so ago, I watched the trailer for the movie “Malcolm & Marie,” an American black-and-white romantic drama film that follows the rocky relationship of a filmmaker, Malcolm, and his girlfriend, Maire. The film seems interesting as the events only seem to take place after the two return home from the filmmaker’s movie premiere. I am really curious to see how it was shot and edited.
The film stars stars Zendaya Coleman, 24, as Marie, and John David Washington, 36, as Malcolm. I am including their ages because the film has been receiving backlash for the 12-year age gap between the two. Although I know that Zendaya is a grown woman, I cannot help still seeing her as teenager because I am so used to seeing her acting in teenage-aged roles. I will not lie, seeing her in the trailer with her counterpart confused me at first, and I thought to myself, “What is she doing with this grown man?” which is ridiculous I know. Zendaya is a grown woman and should be treated and seen as such. I wonder if anyone else felt this way or if it was just me.
In conclusion, this song is for Zendaya: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3MjxWn5W9M
