Zendaya did more than act in secret film with big Oscar buzz

Zendaya is considered an Oscar frontrunner for her new film, “Malcolm & Marie” — but she did way more than just act in the project secretly shot during the coronavirus lockdown.

“We made a bubble,” Zendaya said of the production. “We all quarantined and stayed in this very small area in the middle of nowhere. We shot in this house… we weren’t allowed to leave or go anywhere.”

During the shoot: “I’m doing my own hair and makeup in the bathroom and brought a lot of my clothes to help with set [decoration],” she further said on Pharrell Williams’ new podcast from his OTHERtone Media label.

Zendaya said that the film by Sam Levinson had no assistant director, “so we’re figuring out continuity and stuff like that on our own.”

The film is also being buzzed about as a best picture contender, according to The Hollywood Reporter, with co-star John David Washington as a possible nominee as well.

Williams’ podcast is also hosted by Fam-Lay and Scott Vener.
