“I’m certainly really rather tall at 6 foot 3, and I’ve been this way since I was 14, but for years, women who are even 5 foot 10 have come up to me in the street and said, ‘Oh, it’s so nice to see a woman who is taller than me. I’ve always felt like a giant.’ ”
I REALLY really love that Zendaya is a tall, woman of color. She's even a couple inches taller than Tom Holland. Not that I relate to that, I'm short. I still notice that too many heroines in movies are short & white. I'm so sick of it. It's becoming a stereotype. All the women in Star Wars look the same. Marvel has a long streak of white-washing & lack of diversity so I'm proud to finally like one of their decisions. All beauty needs to be represented.
