I haven't posted anything about the premiere the other night cause I'm still in shock a little bit. This is only my second film, so you could imagine the nerves but it was a magical night and I'm lucky to be next to these incredible people. Thank you for believing in me. @greatestshowman
HER ‘GREATEST SHOWMAN’ ROUTINE
The former Disney stars in the new musical film The Greatest Showman, which will be out in theaters on the 20th of December. The film centers on the founder of the oldest and most famous traveling circus in the entire United States, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, which is also known to be the greatest show on earth. Zendaya plays the role of Anne Wheeler who does acrobatic stunts with Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron. It is no surprise that she would her this part since she is indeed a good dancer and singer that makes her a triple-threat actress.

The 21-year-old actress admits that she is not into working out so when she got the role, the film’s director told her that she might start thinking of actually going to the gym to train. This is because Zendaya is portraying a professional acrobat named Anne Wheeler, so she really had to learn how to use the trapeze as well as being able to catch in the air and most importantly, learning to trust her co-star Zac Efron to be able to catch her from 20-feet up in the air. In an interview with Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show, the young actress revealed that on the very first day of filming she had to go on a trapeze rehearsal wherein she could actually use stunt doubles but then she has to use them as little as possible for her to actually get into her character and have the genuine feeling acrobat could give to her. Zendaya also admitted that she had a really hard time when it comes to training since, in order for her to be able to do her stunts right, she needed to build upper-body strength to be able to lift herself, and it was too far from being easy.
ACROBATIC TRAINING FOR FULL-BODY WORKOUT
Her fans often wondered why Zendaya needed to get fit even if she is already skinny. Well, experts say that not everyone who is skinny is physically fit, sometimes they need to build strength which is what Zendaya needed to do in order to do justice to her role in the Greatest Showman. According to Peter Mercury who is a professional trainer from the Muse Brooklyn, learning acrobats is extremely difficult but incredibly fun at the same time, however, it needs to have hard work and heart put into it. Upper-body strength, as well as flexibility, are the two main keys that a person needs to have in order to start training acrobats. Then again, how would you know if your upper-body strength is actually strong enough? Well, according to Westchester Circus Arts founder Hilary Sweeney, all you need to do is try, which is why they always encourage people who are interested to actually give it s shot. Sweeney also said that those people out there who are not exactly very fond of the gym may actually think that acrobatic workout may be better for them. She even described it as something more fun while doing a full-body workout compared to doing different things at the gym.
ZENDAYA AS A VEGETARIAN
Aside from doing acrobatic workout, Zendaya revealed that she is actually a vegetarian, and her major reason for no longer wanting to consume meat products is because she loves animals but she doesn’t actually like vegetables. She officially became a vegetarian when she watched PETA’s documentary film entitled Glass Walls. However, despite not eating meat, she is still a big fan of fast food just like In-N-Out especially with their grilled cheese sandwich that she always gets.
