‘Spider-Man’ producer didn’t know who Zendaya was when she auditioned for MJ

Amy Pascal admitted that neither she nor Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige knew who Zendaya was when she auditioned for the character of MJ.

Amy Pascal, who served as a producer for ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’, admitted that neither she nor Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige knew who Zendaya was when she auditioned for the character of MJ.

“She was wearing no make-up, and she was just dressed like a regular girl, and we were like, ‘Oh my God, she’s amazing. She has to be in the movie’,” Pascal told Vogue, reports deadline.com.

Pascal added: “And then we found out she was a totally famous person and felt really stupid.”

Zendaya stepped into acting at a young age in the Disney Channel show ‘Shake It Up’.

In an interview with Vogue, Zendaya reflected on her childhood as an adult.

“I don’t know how much of a choice I had,” she told the magazine.

“I have complicated feelings about kids and fame and being in the public eye, or being a child actor.”

Zendaya added: “We’ve seen a lot of cases of it being detrimental. I think only now, as an adult, am I starting to go, Oh, okay, wait a minute – I’ve only ever done what I’ve known, and this is all I’ve known.”
