American actor and singer Zendaya is being praised by fans for rephrasing an interview question to make it gender-neutral. The 24-year-old, who features on the latest cover of Vanity Fair‘s annual Hollywood Issue, made the change when asked about what qualities she likes “most in a man” as part of its accompanying video series The Proust Questionnaire.
During the series of 35 questions, Zendaya was asked by the interviewer: “What is the quality you most like in a man?” prompting her to respond: “I most like in a person, how about that?”
The actor then answered the “big” question, telling the publication: “It’s such a big question. What is the quality I most like in someone? I would say ‘’kindness’ is kind of not the best way to describe it, but some people are just good people, and you can just feel it.”
