“I was a little on the more nervous side of things. He already had the job,” she told Stephen. “I was walking into a room where I knew [director] Denis would be and I knew [Timothee] would be. I’m obviously a fan of both of their work and admire the… Just the consistent, beautiful work that they’ve continued to put out over the years.”

“Yeah, I was nervous, obviously,” Zendaya added. “And I just had my wisdom teeth taken out, so I had this fear, ’cause it was the week before. It takes awhile. I didn’t know how much my face was gonna swell, so I was like that’s gonna be a thing.”

“I did have this fear that I was gonna get dry socket,” she said. “One of the things is it was gonna make your mouth stink, right? And that was one of my biggest fears, like if I get this dry socket thing, and what if I had this horrible breath and I come to meet him. We have these intimate scenes between Chani and Paul, and he’s just meeting me, and my breath is just reeking. That would be, that was my biggest fear. But it didn’t happen!”
