Zendaya was trying to do something harder than acting which is cooking. However, during the failed attempt, she hurt herself and promised that she will not cook again! The actress recently took to her Instagram Stories to document an injury she suffered to her left index finger while she was cooking. Euphoria actress shared the injury in a series of photos. The first snap in the series showed her bandaged finger with the caption, ‘See now… this is why I don’t cook.’
The Emmy-winning actress added another photo of what appeared to be medical professionals working on stitching her hand in a doctor’s office. The Spider-Man: No Way Home star was smiling in the wake of the incident, as she posed in a photo pointing her finger in the air while standing next to her assistant, Darnell Appling. She captioned the snap, ‘Baby’s first stitches lol back to never cooking again.’ Apart from the injury, the Euphoria actress and producer has had a strong week as Emmy nominations were announced.
Zendaya became the youngest performer to ever receive double nominations for lead acting honours, as well as being the youngest woman ever to receive a producing nomination. Zendaya, who plays the role of Rue on the HBO drama, previously was the youngest actress to win the Emmy in the lead actress category as she was 24 when she won in 2020. Zendaya was also nominated twice for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics.
One is for Elliot’s Song, co-written by Labrinth and songwriter Muzhda Zemar-McKenzie, and the other is for I’m Tired, co-written by Labrinth and creator Sam Levinson. Zendaya celebrated the nominations on Instagram, saying, “Making this show with this cast and crew of the most incredibly talented people that I get the privilege of learning from every day has been a highlight of my life.”
Zendaya is now shooting Dune: Part Two, the follow-up to the science fiction adaption by Denis Villeneuve that won six Oscars this year. Alongside Mike Faist and Josh O’Connor, who both won Emmys, she will also appear in Luca Guadagnino’s Challengers, which has been nominated for an Oscar. A total of 16 nominations were made for the HBO programme Euphoria, which was picked up for a third season.
