Lip Lock questions dog Zendaya during the ‘Challengers’ tour

A stream of questions directed at Zendaya about her steamy three-way kiss Challengers while on tour to promote the film, causing her to say, “It’s strange.”

In a recent media interaction, the topic of the much-hyped kiss was brought up by interviewer Jake Hamilton, who said, “I feel like actors have been kissing other actors on screen for a hundred years.”

And he adds: “It’s literally part of your job. You play a role that requires kissing, it’s something you have to do. But I’m excited if you do it, because I’ve been watching interviews from these press trips. If you do it, an abnormal amount of attention will be paid to it.”

Immediately, the Dune star agreed with the host of Jake’s recordings, saying, “I know,” and remarking, “It’s very strange.”

After the answer, Jake asked the actors another probing question.

“Do you feel like people as a society have forgotten that an actor kissing another actor is literally part of your job? Or are they using it as an excuse to get you to talk about kissing?

“I have no idea,” the Emmy winner replied after facing a barrage of awkward questions about the trio’s lip lock.

She continued, “I don’t know if it’s because they want it to go viral, I don’t know. But I notice that, specifically with me.”

“I feel like other actors don’t do that… if you were here with someone else, you probably wouldn’t be asked that question.”

I commented, “But yes, it’s part of my job, and it’s a completely normal part of the job, I think, despite other people’s perceptions of our work.”
