Zendaya got her big TV break on Disney's Shake It Up at age 14 but the star has been acting and modeling since she was a child. Joining hip-hop dance troupe Future Shock Oakland in Northern California at just 8-years-old, the K.C. Undercover actress, who is also a singer and has released her self-titled debut album in 2013, went on to appear in ads as a model and dancer for Macy’s, Old Navy and iCarly merch.
The 25-year-old, who is currently estimated to be worth $15 million, landed the role of _Spider-Man's_MJ at 21, reprising the Marvel character in two follow-up movies that brought her fame and fortune. According to Style Caster, she made $2 million for Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Among her latest movie projects to bring her world renown, Dune, in which Zendaya acts opposite her BFF Timothée Chalamet, came with a $300,000 payout -- which Style Caster puts down to her smaller role.
Likewise, her three-year (thus far) stint as Rue Bennett in Euphoria, for which she won an Emmy last year, has earned her considerable revenue, considering her net worth was only $5 million prior to the HBO gig.
On top of that, the successful actress has produced a movie last year, Malcolm & Marie, in which she also starred.
