Zendaya Coleman

Teen sensation Zendaya sat down with HuffPost Live today and revealed that her celebrity crush is the one and only Channing Tatum. The Disney star also shared some wise words about transitioning to adulthood while in the spotlight.

On her celebrity crush:

Zendaya: “I have a few [celebrity crushes]. One of my favorites, I have to say, is Channing Tatum, but the list goes on forever and ever...He can dance and I think that’s really cool because I love people who can have multiple talents. So he’s funny and he can act and he can also dance and get down, like hip-hop. So that’s pretty cool to me."

On transitioning from child star to adulthood:

Zendaya: “Everyone grows their own way. Everyone is going to grow and figure out who they are and some people aren’t going to like it and some people aren’t going to agree with it, but at the end of the day, it’s their journey… It’s who they are and it just happens to be displayed in front of a lot of people… For me I guess, I’m not trying to grow up too fast...You can make certain kinds of mistakes and it’s okay because you are seventeen. Exactly, you learn from it."
