Zendaya is the cover star of British Vogue’s October issue, and in a recent interview, she’s opened up about going to therapy to help deal with her financial anxiety.
The twenty-five-year-old recently opened up about her anxiety surrounding her finances with the outlet.
“Yeah of course I go to therapy,” she said. “I mean if anybody is able to possess the financial means to go to therapy, I would recommend they do that.”
“I think it’s a beautiful thing,” she continued. “You know, there’s nothing wrong with working on yourself and dealing with those things with someone who can help you, someone who can talk to you, who’s not your mom or whatever. Who has no bias.”
The actress and singer then went on to talk about the main topic she discusses with her therapist…
“My mother’s a saver, and so I try to keep that in mind. Then my dad’s like, ‘You know, you can’t spend it when you’re dead,’ kind of thing. I’m somewhere in-between,” she explained.
And while the star is worth $15 million, she admits that she’s anxious to spend it, explaining that when she went on vacation with her friend, she asked him to pay for things with her credit card because she didn’t want to see how much the purchases actually came to.
She doesn’t want to have to worry about the amount of money she’s spending…
“The hope is to have a career where you can be in a position, financially, to just do things you want to do because you enjoy the work and not have to worry about the other things,” she explained.
But the star fears that if she stops working, she won’t be able to keep up what she has…
“But I’m always like, ‘I will always need to work.’ Because if I don’t work, then everything can be gone tomorrow.”
We’re glad that Zendaya feels comfortable enough to discuss these intimate parts of her life with us all.
It really proves that no matter what you have in your life, not everything is ever quite as perfect as you’d like it to be.
