WATCH: Zendaya’s tips for overcoming self-doubt will change your life

She's just so wise.

08 Oct 2018

Let’s get real, we are obsessed with Zendaya. We are practically living for every Instagram post as much as we are here for her ever-evolving acting career. Now, Zendaya is taking us on another all-singing-all-dancing trip with co-stars, Channing Tatum and James Corden in an exciting new movie.

Smallfoot explores the isolated life of Yetis as their world is turned upside down by the discovery of humanbeings – drama! Spoiler alert, it’s the best animated film since Frozen; prepare to be uplifted.

Here, Zendaya sits down with our Josh Newis-Smith to solve our First World Yeti Problems; consider her an agony aunt on ice.

Josh: The songs are EPIC in 'Smallfoot' – but who do you think is the better singer, Channing Tatum or James Corden?

Zendaya: They both did a really great job, right? It’s really fun, they killed it I think.

Josh: Which 'Smallfoot' song would you play in a down moment?

Zendaya: Wonderful Life. It’s very inspirational and it's about finding out truth for yourself and going out there and really appreciating the little things in life, which is a great message, so I’ll go with that one.

Josh: 'Smallfoot' is about a journey into the unknown - when you’ve had self-doubt what do you say to yourself to find the voice within?

Zendaya: That’s a really good question! I think I like to remind myself that my gut instinct is always the best one. I think often we let too many voices get into our head and too much doubt, too much fear. I sometimes think you should just listen to that immediate gut reaction to something – it’s usually the right feeling to trust. You should just try to follow that and if it doesn’t feel all the way right then don’t do it.

Josh: What’s the best way to get Yeti on my dance moves?

Zendaya: My character personally does a lot of twirling and it’s her thing – in every other scene and I love it, I live for it. And that fabulous braid just living her best life.

Josh: You are the queen performer – what performance tips could you give me to raise my karaoke game?

Zendaya: If you're going to do karaoke, always pick a song that you actually know all the words to already so that if you want to look away from the screen, you can – if you have to read every single line then it's not the one for you. You can’t deliver a good performance that way. Make sure you already know the song.

Josh: What’s your go-to karaoke song?

Zendaya: Anything Michael Jackson really, I have all the lyrics down to that stuff – or Beyoncé, any Beyoncé song – literally, Everything is Love if life! I learned all the lyrics within three days!

Smallfoot is in cinemas from 12th October
