Zendaya impresses Hugh Jackman
The actor was full of compliments for the acrobatic skills of the Spider-Man: Homecoming actresss
Actress Zendaya of Spider-Man: Homecoming fame says actor Hugh Jackman was impressed upon seeing her stunt work on the set of their upcoming musical The Greatest Showman.
In the film, about showman P.T. Barnum and the creation of his iconic circus, Zendaya plays the role of a trapeze artist. The actress trained for months in order to perfect the acrobatic skills.
"I got to accomplish something and try a new skill I never thought I'd ever do in my whole life. Scratch that off the bucket list," she says. The actress is still amazed that The Wolverine star is wowed by her.
"Before I went up (in the trapeze) he goes, 'Zendaya, you're a badass'. How many people have Hugh say, 'You're a badaass?' Nobody gets that."
Jackman says, "She's what I call a unicorn. I don't know if there has been anyone like Zendaya or will be ever again. That girl makes it all look absolutely effortless."
