Los Angeles, Sep 15 (IANS) Zendaya’s mother Claire Stoermer has revealed that she was almost not allowed to approach her actress daughter at the Emmys.
Following the 74th annual Primetime Emmy Awards where Zendaya won her second Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, Claire took to her Instagram Story on Tuesday to share a snap taken of her and her daughter at the event, reports aceshowbiz.com.
In the caption, she wrote, “(I) made my way to Z before they awarded her the Emmy and gave her the biggest hug and said… breathe!!!”
The problem was Claire almost wasn’t allowed to approach her daughter’s table.
“The man who tried to stop me said ‘where are your credentials?’ ” she continued sharing.
“I said ‘I’m zendaya’s mom’ and kept walking!! hahaha! i never name drop like that but i have to do it!”
In another story posted on Wednesday, Claire called out news outlets which used a picture of her that did not fit with an article about her daughter.
“So many people have sent me this,” she wrote along with a screenshot of her monitor displaying one of the articles in question.
She added of her issue with it, “it’s like why did they take a picture of me from the US Open where I’m cheering for Serena and use it for an article about my daughter at the Emmys….it is just so stupid and irritating!”
Zendaya won her second non-consecutive Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Rue Bennett on ‘Euphoria’ at the 2022 Emmys.
“Thank you to the Academy, thank you to my friends and family, some of which are here tonight,” Zendaya said in her acceptance speech, pausing to laugh as her mom cheered. “Thank you to Sam [Levinson] for sharing Rue with me, thank you for believing in me even in moments where I didn’t believe in myself.”
While her mom was on hand to support Zendaya at the event, her boyfriend Tom Holland missed the moment because he was busy filming in NYC.
