But, in recent days, the actress has been garnering attention for something entirely out of her control.
Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in London recently unveiled their Zendaya statue and its… interesting to say the least.
The wax figure is dressed in a bright pink power suit and placed in front of a gold shimmery background.
This look was taken from a red carpet look she rocked in 2016.
Madame Tussauds London Debuts Zendaya’s New Wax Figure
While the figure does resemble Zendaya in *some* aspects/features, many fans online are expressing their distaste and outrage over the statue.
People took to Twitter to sound off with one tweeting, “They turned Zendaya into Kylie Jenner at Madame Tussauds London unveil of her wax figure.”
“Somehow, Madame Tussad’s wax figure of Zendaya looks like they started off thinking they were doing Kylie Kardashian and then changed their minds mid stream,” another wrote.
Fans Think The Wax Figure Looks Like Kylie Jenner
Another drew comparison to Naya writing, “Zendaya’s wax figure looks more like Naya Rivera than Zendaya herself. Smh!”
Others on Twitter were highly upset with how wrong Madame Tussads gets bringing “Black Girl Magic” to life.
“Zendaya’s Madame Tussauds wax figure is horrible. Why is it so hard for them to make Black People?” one upset person commented.
Another took the time to dig up unrecognizable wax figures of Rihanna and Beyonce writing, “All this talk about Zendaya’s wax figure reminds me of the horrendous wax figures of Rihanna and Beyoncé lmfao.”
Someone else compared Z’s new wax figure to a frozen looking Lisa Rinna.
On the other hand, some people were more forgiving and understanding of Madame Tussads not getting the wax figure to look identical to the real-life Zendaya.
“Why are people so pressed about the Zendaya wax figure, she’s on of the most beautiful people ever. You’re not gonna be able to emulate that in a wax figure hahaha they did their best like…” a forgiving person wrote.
This person agreed writing, “Am I tripping because I think it looks like her…it looks better than a lot other figures we’ve seen.
Some Think It Actually Looks Like Zendaya
Regardless of how people feel about her wax figure, it’s very clear that a TON of people agree she deserves an Emmy award for her performance on season 2 of “Euphoria.”
Zendaya won her first Emmy for her performance as Rue in 2020. She was awarded the Emmy for “Lead Actress in a Drama Series.”
Earlier this week, The Blast reported on the fanfare Z received on social media after episode five of season 2 aired.
If you aren’t caught up, this is your warning that there are spoilers ahead!
In the episode, viewers see Zendaya’s character, Rue Bennett, suffer from withdrawals, go into multiple aggressive, manic meltdowns over drugs, and they see her commit illegal acts.
The episode itself is truly terrifying, but Z’s performance is astoundingly mesmerizing.
Her co-star, Angus Cloud, who plays Fez the drug dealer on “Euphoria,” tweeted on February 6, “Zendaya is an incredible f***ing actress. Holy F**k. #Euphoria.”
He followed it up with, “GIVE ZENDAYA HER EMMY NOW! #Euphoria.”
Travon Free tweeted, “Condolences to everyone who lost their Emmy to Zendaya tonight.”
Another fan predicted this performance would get Z her second Emmy.
“Tonight’s Euphoria will earn Zendaya another Emmy nomination (and likely) another Emmy win. Enjoy.”
