Rachel Zegler feels 'unsafe' with the paparazzi

Rachel Zegler is "afraid" of the paparazzi.

The 21-year-old actress - who shot to international fame when she took on the leading role of Maria in the 2021 remake of 'West Side Story' - has vowed to wear the same outfits when out and about in New York City in a bid to look less "interesting" so photographers stop following her.

In a video posted to Twitter, she said: "Dear paparazzi in NYC, I am literally always wearing this coat. Is it that interesting?

"I really appreciate you all being nice to me, mostly because I’m afraid to tell you no because you’re a bunch of men and I am a woman alone in New York City, but I am literally always wearing this. I am always going to be wearing this if it’s winter in New York.

"I am always going to be wearing this jacket with jeans and some form of heeled shoe. It’s never going to be anything different!"

The 'Let Me Try' singer - who is due to follow up her success in 'West Side Story' as she takes on the title role of 'Snow White' in the live-action remake of the Walt Disney classic in 2024 - went on to add that she "doubts" the photographs of her will be lucrative for the paparazzi because she is not at the same level of fame as someone like pop superstar Jennifer Lopez.

She added: "I hope you make a lot of money for your photos, but I don't think you will. I'm not J Lo! I don't know!"
