Yara Shahidi has to be one of the most naturally beautiful women in Hollywood.
The actress decided to go to last night's red carpet premiere of the new Spiderman movie, without any makeup.
The 19 year old actress arrived for the premiere of Sony Pictures' "Spider-Man: Far From Home" at TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California with her family and handlers.
And she's so naturally beautiful, that no one even noticed that she was bare-faced on the red carpet.
Shahidi has often been applauded for being a voice for her generation and gets passionate while talking about politics. But she became visibly sentimental Saturday afternoon, when recalling what it was like growing up with Prince as an extended part of her family.
Here are pics:
“When I think about what Prince has done for our family, we’re always just grateful for his presence and what he’s done for the creative world at large,” the 19 year old actress says of the years that her father, Afshin Shahidi, worked as the music legend’s personal photographer.
“All the work that he’s done that no one actually even knew about and the work that he’s done for our family in particular. It’s surreal to think about because I think he really set precedent of what it means to make this a family business. To be three or four and to be able to travel with him and the rest of the band, to be on tour and to be in Hawaii with them, to be in London with them,” she continued.
Yara is an actor, model and activist. She gained recognition for her starring role as the oldest daughter Zoey Johnson on the sitcom Black-ish (2014–present) and its spin-off series Grown-ish (2018–present). Her film credits include Imagine That (2009), Smallfoot (2018), and the lead role in The Sun Is Also a Star (2019).
And Yara is more than just an actress. She founded Eighteen x 18 with social news publisher NowThis, which "will be a platform to encourage [her] peers to vote for the very first time in our upcoming midterm elections." Her other organizations include Yara's Club a partnership with Young Women's Leadership Network (YWLN) of New York, which provides online mentorship in hopes to end poverty through education.[
Yara's activism was noticed by former first lady Michelle Obama, who wrote her a letter of recommendation to Harvard University
