Zendaya just turned 21, but that doesn't mean she is going to start drinking. 

She wrote a birthday post on her blog: 

Today I turn 21! Holla!!! But just because I'm now the legal drinking age, doesn't mean I'm going to start throwing 'em back. I don't plan to start drinking.

She told fans why she didn't feel the need to drink:

My life is too stressful to need help with relaxing by having a cocktail. This industry is way too nuts for me to not be in control of myself and my decisions, so I just don't want to introduce drinking! Plus, I donโ€™t want drinking to become a vice. Why try something if you donโ€™t need it?!

So no partying it up on her birthday!

Instead, Zendaya announced she was helping raise money for victims of Hurricane Harvey:

Twitter users respected Zendaya's decision:

Spiderman costar Tom Holland posted a birthday message.

Holland joked that he would have a drink for her:

Thinking about how to get taller ๐Ÿ˜‚ Happy birthday mate. Miss you and I'll have a drink for you. #21stbirthday
