Since 2016, when they met on the set of Spider-Man: Homecoming, rumours have been going around that Zendaya and Tom Holland are together. The co-stars did not confirm or deny that they were dating… until a picture of them kissing did the work for them.
Here’s everything you need to know about the couple, from the rumours that started it all to where they are now.
On the set of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Zendaya and Tom Holland meet. “It’s like though we’re the best of friends.” Holland told People at the time, “She’s so great and amazing.” “I’m a little nervous about dealing with fame…but Zendaya is incredibly famous and has gone through it, so I simply phone her and ask, ‘How do I cope with being famous?'” I’m delighted I have someone like her as a buddy.”

The chemistry they displayed during the Spider-Man press tour sparked the initial rumours. Sources believe they are keeping their relationship discreet despite denying dating rumours. In July 2017, a source told People, “They started dating each other when they were filming Spider-Man.” “They’ve been quite careful to keep it private and out of the public eye, but they’ve gone on trips together and try to spend as much time together as possible.”
Another source states they have a similar sense of humour in the same article: “They’re both highly ambitious and they challenge each other, but most importantly, they make each other laugh.” They appear to share a similar sense of humour and enjoy teasing each other. They have a lot of back-and-forth banter.”
That common sense of humour is eventually used to debunk the dating allegations. “Wait…my favourite part is when it says we go on holidays together!” I haven’t taken a vacation in a long time! @TomHolland1996???” hbu @TomHolland1996???” “Does the press tour count?” Holland answers to Zendaya’s tweet.

Between Spider-Man flicks, the two stayed close, with Holland celebrating Zendaya’s debut at the Met Gala in May 2018.
“All hail the monarchy. Mate, you’re killing it “He said with a shot of her on the red carpet dressed as Joan of Arc.
Holland also shared a humorous photo of himself, Zendaya, and their Spider-Man costar Jacob Batalon while at Disneyland for a photocall to promote the film on Instagram in May 2019.
In an incident filmed by Comments by Celebs, the actor placed Zendaya’s tag in a socially awkward moment, with Zendaya remarking, “I’m assuming because you don’t know how to work ig, that’s the reasoning behind my name placement.”
Before correcting the tag, Holland replied, “Thanks @zendaya for making me aware of my evident goof.”

Given that Spider-Man: Far From Home was rehearsed and filmed months before its release date, we may infer that the two have kissed previously, but we didn’t see them kiss for the first time until the film’s release on June 26, 2019.
During a Sirius XM Town Hall event, Holland and Zendaya discussed their height disparity and whether it hindered their kiss, which Holland termed as a “dumb notion.”
He continued, “[Zendaya] isn’t that much taller.” “People don’t say things like, ‘How do you guys kiss?’ It had to be extremely difficult.'”

When Holland, Zendaya, and co-star Jacob Batalon share an Instagram photo of themselves, Zendaya, and co-star Jacob Batalon, he unintentionally tags her name in a highly provocative location.
“I’m thinking the reason for my name placement is because you don’t know how to utilise ig,” she joked with five laughing emojis.
“Thanks @zendaya for making me aware of my obvious goof,” Holland says after editing the tag.

Holland, Zendaya, and Jacob Batalon reunited for a video posted by Sony on March 15th, in which they watched their audition tapes for the franchise. As they viewed a young Holland’s audition film for the superhero, the three of them could be seen laughing.
As part of Euphoria’s For Your Consideration event on April 20, Zendaya talked about how her boyfriend, Holland, helps her “free” herself from her role in the HBO programme.
Asked by ET about how Holland “pulls her out of the dark moments,” Zendaya said, “I think it’s nice to have that support and love around you, because you need it.”
Acting “isn’t easy,” Zendaya said, so it’s nice to have a break from it now and then.
