Zendaya previously shared her experience of watching the film's steamy scenes with her parents in the theater.

“They’ve all seen Euphoria, you know, so it’s not our first rodeo or anything. It was funny because, you know, obviously I’ve seen the movie many times so I know what’s coming, and they were all sitting behind me, and I got to, like, watch them watch and slowly just be like, ‘Oh God!’” she said.
