Zendaya says she watches Harry Potter once a day, and honestly, same

When you’re a working actress, singer, and Lancôme ambassador like Zendaya is, you absolutely need a lot of R&R to stay sane and healthy. What’s her go-to self-care routine? She watches a lotof Harry Potter—a lot. Stars, they’re just like us.

In an August 9th interview with InStyle for the magazine’s September issue, the Euphoria star was asked about her personal definition of “self-care.” And her answer is honestly too relatable.

“Everyone has their own thing, like a form of meditation or whatever,” Zendaya told the publication. “Me, I find it very hard to just sit there and clear my brain.”

"People say I'm crazy, but I watch Harry Potter, like, once a day. It's just calming to me, so that's my thing," she said. "People are like, 'Oh my god, Harry Potter again?' I say, 'Don't come over to my house if you don't want to watch it, because it's going to be on.'"

Now we want to know which Harry Potter flick is her fave. Maybe she marathons the entire franchise over the course of a few days. Or perhaps she watches the same Harry Potter movie over and over? Is it possible she dyed her hair red in honor of the Weasleys and not Marvel’s Mary Jane? We need answers.


Fans probably aren’t shocked that Zendaya uses Harry Potter to relax and recenter. The star is openly obsessed with the Wizarding World. She even celebrated her 22nd birthday last year with a Harry Potter studio tour at the Warner Bros. lot in London.

Zendaya, any time you want to have a Harry Potter marathon party, you know who to call.
