TRAILER: Zendaya & John David Washington Star In Malcolm & Marie

John David Washington and Zendaya in Malcolm & Marie

"I'm just like, "Aw, thank you!' I feel like everyone at that moment becomes my auntie, and I'm just like, 'Oh, my God, I want to make you proud".

She said: "We made a bubble".

Malcolm & Marie already has Oscar buzz, especially for Zendaya's magnetic performance in the best actress category - but she's also a producer on the film.

In February's GQ cover story, the 24-year-old said that through the last year she was constantly offered roles, but rejected them all because they were too two-dimensional, or would cast her as a prop for the male protagonist. "Because I feel like sh-t, just making people wait on me to get emotional".

"It was my first time just being like, 'Okay, who am I without this?' Which is a very scary thing to confront and work through, because I don't really know Zendaya outside of the Zendaya who works", she explains to the mag. "It would have been great and it would have been fine, but I wouldn't have grown at all". "I don't yell. I'm not a very argumentative person, but it's nice to just release and be able to... You're not K.C. [anymore]'".


The movie was shot during lockdown by Euphoria creator Sam Levinson, and stars Zendaya and John David Washington.

The full interview, which also sees Zendaya reflecting on her Emmy win and how else she's spent her time during the pandemic era, is available here and complemented by photography from Tyrell Hampton.

Last September, Zendaya made Emmys history by becoming the youngest victor for Best Leading Actress in the drama series category.

"Zendaya, discussing the creative process behind the film in the Q&A, added: "[Levinson] had this brilliant idea that now that is Malcolm & Marie, and as soon as he talked about stripping things back and possibly shooting it in black and white, trying to create a skeleton crew".
