Zendaya has revealed all the things she ‘appreciates’ about her boyfriend and Spider-Man co-star, Tom Holland.
The couple, who finally (kinda) confirmed their romance when they were pictured kissing in Tom’s car in July, have had romance rumours swirling around them since they first starred together in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Speaking on InStyle’s Ladies First podcast, as the cover star for the magazine’s Best Dressed issue, Zendaya shared that there were ‘many things’ she appreciated about her actor boyfriend, beginning with the way he ‘really loves being Spider-Man’.
The 25-year-old explained: ‘In an actor way, I appreciate that he really loves being Spider-Man.
‘It’s a lot of pressure – you take on the role of a superhero wherever you go. To the little kid who walks by, you are Spider-Man. I think he handled that so well.’
She also praised Tom’s ‘perfectionist’ tendencies, which she admires as a Virgo.
‘Even though he’s not a Virgo, he is a perfectionist. Our director allowed me to come in every day, and it was cool to see how he cares so much about his work and making it right.’
The star suggested that his standards of ideal went even further than hers as she recalled watching him work on each move in an ‘exhausting’ fight scene.
‘I watched him do a fight scene all day, which is exhausting,’ she said. ‘He’d do a move, come back to the monitors, watch it, and say, “I can do that better”.
‘I’d be like, “Dude, you got it”. But he wants us to be perfect, and I really appreciate that.’
Zendaya stars alongside Tom as Michelle ‘MJ’ Jones, a love interest to Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the latest iteration of the Marvel webslinger’s movies.
The next movie, Spider-Man: No Way Home, in which both star, is set to hit cinemas on December 17, and sees Spider-Man deal with the fallout of Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) publicly announcing his identity at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home.
In 2017, former Disney star Zendaya denied any romance with Tom, also 25, telling Variety Magazine that they were simply ‘just friends’.
Tom began dating model Olivia Bolton in 2019 before they split in April 2020.
Elsewhere, Zendaya was linked to her Euphoria castmate Jacob Elordi on numerous occasions between August 2019 and March 2020, before he moved on with Kaia Gerber than November.
Since the kissing pictures emerged, Tomdaya have been pictured cuddling up together at a friend’s wedding in August.
Tom then posted a sweet tribute to his girlfriend on her birthday in September.
The dressing room picture of the pair together saw with him in his iconic superhero costume and his girlfriend resting her head on his shoulder from behind as she took the snap in the mirror.
He wrote: ‘My MJ, have the happiest of birthdays. Gimme a call when your up xxx [sic].’
The full interview will be featured in InStyle’s November issue hitting newsstands on October 22. Spider-Man: No Way Home hits cinemas on December 17.
