'Spider-Man: Homecoming's Laura Harrier Talks About Getting Confused for Zendaya

Laura Harrier and Zendaya are both women of color and that’s basically all they have in common.

However, the two Spider-Man: Homecoming stars are always getting confused for each other, and that really shouldn’t be a thing.

“We look nothing alike. People just can’t wrap their heads around two young black women in a major production,” Laura shared in a recent profile in The Chicago Tribune.

Laura is Liz Allan, the actual love interest to Peter Parker in the film. Zendaya is Michelle, a sort of friend of his.

“I think that really speaks more to the lack of substantive roles for women of color in film,” she adds. “It’s really the responsibility of filmmakers in the studios to have more women in movies like this and for there to be more than one of us and when there is more than one of us, making sure we’re not just talking about a man or fighting over a man.”

Spider-Man: Homecoming is out in theaters TONIGHT!
