Watch Zendaya And Jimmy Fallon Crush A Game Of Charades Against Billy Crudup And Tariq Trotter

"He was making pottery!"

Zendaya had a pretty great Monday this week. Her new musical film, The Greatest Showman — which she co-stars in with Zac Efron — was nominated for three Golden Globe awards. On top of that, the singer and actress was a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where she got to kick ass in a game of charades and talk about some of her recent accomplishments, including how she landed an opportunity to be in Bruno Mars' music video for "Versace on the Floor." 

It's easy to see why the 21-year-old star is so beloved. She's empowered, relatable, and doesn't take herself too seriously. When Fallon tells her that she walks like a movie star, she's quick to show him that's not her real walk. "It's a different persona that comes on when I'm on stage. I know how to walk in heels, I know how to do that," she said. "But in my day-to-day life, me and my dad walk the same, which is ... not necessarily a great thing. We call it the 'Coleman Trudge.' " She also brought along outtake footage from The Greatest Showman that shows her and Efron failing to do a trapeze stunt

During a game the charades, Zendaya teamed up with Fallon against actor (and MasterCard narrator) Billy Crudup and The Roots' Tariq Trotter — and things got a little competitive. 


Zendaya started off the game by choosing a clue behind No. 3, her lucky number. She then expertly acted out "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," which Fallon guessed with only a second to spare. Crudup then got up to act out the film The Wedding Singer and Trotter guessed it with three seconds left on the clock. 

Later, Fallon seemed concerned about acting out his clue. He stalled for awhile before finally giving it a go. But Zendaya showed him he had nothing to worry about. She guessed it correctly in just seven seconds.  

But was it enough for her to win?
