Zendaya just got her wisdom teeth taken out, and if the saying “misery loves company” is true, she’s doing just fine.

The Greatest Showman star posted a chipmunk-cheeked photo of herself on Twitter after surgery on Friday.

She looks nothing short of miserable with her swollen cheeks and an ice pack wrapped around her head.

Debating on *whether or not I should post this wisdom teeth video on ig, cause I look a hot ass mess…,” she wrote before sharing a sneak peek of her new look.  


It looks painful, but it’s a pain many people are all too familiar with. So Twitter users came together and started sharing their own swollen photos in a show of solidarity.

Zendaya’s new look does make her look a little more like her character from Little Foot, Meechee.

She later shared an Instagram story of her struggle.

With a mouth full of gauze, Zendaya says “I’ve made it home, … got my mom with me because I’m a little baby and need my mom to take care of me,” she says as her mom bustles about in the background.

Zendaya seems to keep it positive, saying she feels good and giving the camera a thumbs up.

Get well soon, girl!
