Zendaya plans on ringing in her 21st birthday today in style (as she does with everything), but if you see her out celebrating, don't offer her an alcoholic drink. While many 21-year-olds celebrate turning the legal U.S. drinking age by indulging in alcohol, Zendaya is choosing to step back from it instead.

The actress revealed on her app Friday that she's skipping alcohol for the time being, and she has a very good reason for it.

"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!" she wrote. "Plus, I don’t want drinking to become a vice. Why try something if you don’t need it?!"

Sounds like more than a solid reason to us. The actress added that she doesn't plan to start drinking after her birthday, writing "just because I'm now the legal drinking age, doesn't mean I'm going to start throwing 'em back."
