Zendaya is tired of being asked about kissing the “Challengers” co-star.

Zendaya has voiced her frustration by facing questions about the kiss scene.

The Golden Globe winner has been on a press tour for “Challengers,” the tennis drama that includes a highly anticipated kiss between her and co-stars Mike Faist and Josh O’Connor.

In a conversation with the “Euphoria” cast, an interviewer mentioned that there seemed to be a strong focus on asking Zendaya about her on-screen kiss scene. Zendaya agreed, finding the attention odd, and replied, “It’s very odd.”

“Do you feel as a society has forgotten that an actor kissing another actor is part of your job? Or are they using it as an excuse to make you talk about kissing?” interviewer Jake Hamilton asked.

“I don’t know,” Zendaya replied.

“I don’t know if it’s because they want it to go viral, I don’t know. But I noticed that, with me specifically. I feel like other actors don’t… if you’re with other people here, you probably won’t be asked that question. But, yes, it’s part of my job, and it’s a completely normal part of the job, I think, despite other people’s perception of our job.”

Throughout her career, Zendaya has often been asked about kiss scenes. In 2021, she revealed that she refused to kiss her Disney Channel co-star “Shake It Up” because she hadn’t had her first real-life kiss yet and didn’t want it to happen on television.

During the press tour for “Challengers,” Zendaya faced many uncomfortable questions about kissing. One such example was when Australia’s Channel 7’s Edwina Bartholomew asked Zendaya which of her co-stars was the “best kisser”, causing Zendaya to wince.

Challenger follows Tashi, a tennis player-turned-coach, who has transformed her husband from a mediocre player into a world-renowned grand slam champion. The film is set to premiere later this week on April 26.
