Those of us hoping for an iconic Met Gala moment from Zendaya this year are out of luck.
The actress revealed to Extra that she won’t be attending the May 2 soiree, marking the second year she’s missed the mega fashion event.
“I hate to disappoint my fans here, but I will be working,” the Euphoria star tells Extra. “Your girl’s got to work and make some movies, so I wish everyone the best. I will be playing tennis, but I will be back eventually… I’ll keep delivering in other ways.”
The “playing tennis” comment is in reference to her upcoming movie Challengers, in which she plays a tennis player turned coach who helps her husband become a champ.
Zendaya has previously attended the Met Gala five times, sporting memorable looks like her light-up Cinderella gown in 2019 and a Joan of Arc-inspired look in 2018.
