Hugh Jackman Was Embarrassed To Admit He Didn't Know Who Zendaya Was Before 'The Greatest Showman'

Zendaya‘s brand new movie, The Greatest Showman, is out now and her co-star Hugh Jackman is praising her like we all do every day!

“I am embarrassed to say that I had never heard of Zendaya when I knew she was up for the role,” Hugh admits in a new interview and it was his daughter, Ava, who clued him in.

He adds, “She couldn’t wait to come to set and met Zendaya, and she brought all her friends…there’s a lot of famous people that she’s met, but I’ve never seen her starstruck like she was with Zendaya.”

“Zendaya couldn’t have been sweeter,” Hugh boasts about her about meeting his daughter and her entourage she brought. “Genuinely sweet. Girls look up to her and I’m so glad they do, because she is about as flawless and amazing a young person that I’ve ever met.”
