Zendaya spilled to Splash News about people saying she can’t play Aaliyah because she’s not black enough: ‘A lot of people say I’m not black enough. Half black is just enough. It doesn’t matter what color you are, it’s about how you portray the character.
For those that don’t know, Angela Bassett and Tina Turner, they look nothing alike but she was that character so I think that’s what it’s all about.’ Her dad added: ‘They’re shooting this in the summer. She’ll get dark enough.’
