Since her days at Disney, Zendaya has established a successful career for herself. Following her breakthrough role as Rocky Blue on the Disney Channel show Shake It Up in 2010, she’s gone from TV actor to movie star. Her performances in films like Malcolm & Marie, as well as her breakout role as MJ in the Spider-Man movies, have established her as a major force in Hollywood. It should be no surprise then that Zendaya earned a $300,000 salary for her mere seven minutes of screen time in Dune: Part One.
