“Malcolm & Marie” stars John David Washington and Zendaya were recently the stunning cover stars on W magazine’s latest publication.

The shoot inspired by Slim Aarons’s photos of socialite C.Z. Guest upset the usual narrative of a white society by depicting a “Black couple living a similarly extravagant lifestyle”.

While speaking to the magazine, Zendaya whose goal ” was to replace the conventional idea of white society in Aarons’s picture with the more modern concept of a Black couple who live in a similarly grand house with an equally alluring swimming pool” says;

“Two Black actors in this setting. seems like rewriting history in an elegant manner, like kind of an Old Hollywood that we wished existed. It’s almost like righting a wrong.”

On working with Zendaya, John says:

I hadn’t seen her in anything but “Euphoria”. When we met, we instantly connected. She was wearing her hoodie and glasses and no makeup. She struck me instantly as a quiet, powerful force.”

About his journey from athletics into acting, John says,

“In football, you had to prove every day that you belonged, which is also true in acting. When I snapped my Achilles tendon on a play—when I heard that pop—I thought, this is God’s way of saying that you have to sit down and think about your life. After that, I auditioned for “Ballers” and got the part. That was the beginning of this new life.”
