Zendaya opened up about her decision to avoid alcoholic beverages.

Stars – They’re Just Like Us! The former Disney star, who celebrated her 21st birthday on Friday, September 1, explained her decision in a post on her website.

“Today I turn 21! Holla!!! But just because I’m not the legal drinking age, doesn’t mean I’m going to start throwing ’em back,” she wrote on Friday.

“I don’t plan to start drinking.”

“All in all, Zendaya is playing it safe to avoid problems that alcohol can elicit.”Plus, I don’t want drinking to become a vice,” the Shake It Up alum reasoned.

Zac Efron, who stars alongside Zendaya in The Greatest Showman, also took to Instagram to wish his costar well.
