Tom Holland opened up about his relationship with Spider-Man movies co-star Zendaya
Tom Holland and Zendaya, who have for a longest time denied dating each other, were photographed kissing in a car in the Silver Lake neighbourhood of Los Angeles in July. The photos spread like a wildfire on social media and news websites in the US, fuelling speculation about their relationship.
Tom Holland finally broke silence on this in an interview. “One of the downsides of our fame is that privacy isn’t really in our control anymore, and a moment that you think is between two people that love each other very much is now a moment that is shared with the entire world. I’ve always been really adamant to keep my private life private, because I share so much of my life with the world anyway. We sort of felt robbed of our privacy,” Holland said.
Holland also talked about the impact Zendaya has had on his life over the years. “Having her in my life was so instrumental to my sanity. She is so good at being the role model for young guys and girls. When anyone comes up, like, ‘Can I have a picture?,’ it’s never a bad time. Whereas my initial reaction was: ‘Why are you talking to me? Leave me alone’,” he added.
