While chatting with RyanSeacrest.com, the 17-year-old actress opened up about the topic.
“Can I just first of all start off by saying that Zendaya looked absolutely stunning and gorgeous at the Oscars,” Bella started out. “Her dress was also beautiful!”
She added, “I know Giuliana and I know Zendaya, and I know them both personally, and honestly Giuliana is a really sweet person. And Zendaya has been on Fashion Police as a guest and Giuliana just goes on and on about how much she loves her. So I think when Giuliana made that comment, although this doesn’t justify it in any way, I think that she didn’t mean it like that and it just came out wrong because she really loves Zendaya.”
Bella continued on, “People have to remember that there is so much criticism going out to teens and the way they look and the way they dress … people are just growing up. We’re all growing up. We’re all trying to find ourselves. So what? We make some mistakes. So what? We look good on a red carpet finally. We’re all trying to find ourselves here.”
“One of things I am most grateful for from working on #TheDuff is the lifelong- beautiful friendships I’ve made. I Love YOU @skylersamuels Congrats on your new show #ScreamQueens…you know I will be watching…Missing pix of us @biancaalexasantos :(” Bella added afterwards. So sweet!
