If Zendaya Ever Directs, She Wants All Her Leads To Be Black Women

As Zendaya's portfolio continues to expand, the hyphenate may very well be eyeing yet another hat to wear in the form of a director.
In a new conversation with British Vogue, Zendaya admits to wanting to try directing on for size, but she carries only one stipulation--to make a project with Black female leads.
On the topic of her current experiences and the legacy she'd hope to leave behind, Zendaya reveals that she hopes for a body of work that reflects the "catalyst for change" that she believes art to be.

"If I ever do become a film-maker, I know that the leads of my films will always be black women," she tells the publication. "I gotta hurry up and figure out how to f*cking become a director, man. I’m trying, I’m learning every day, I really am. There’s so much I want to do.”
All the while, she is in no rush to put a date to it, and remains comfortable following the cadence of her success.
"I’ve never been like, ‘I want to do this at this time, then from this age, I want to do this.’ One day I’ll have a family, but I’m not trying to put a number on it," she says at one point. "It’ll happen if it’s meant to happen."
