Holland was just a teenager when he took on the iconic superhero role. He signed a multi-year deal with Sony and Marvel, and it’s made him the superstar he is today.
Once “Spider-Man: No Way Home” hits theaters in December, Holland will be faced with nothing.
That’s right, NOTHING.
This is the first time in years the young actor doesn’t have a job lined up after wrapping a movie.
“It’s very strange,” Holland says. “Since I got cast as Spider-Man, I haven’t really taken a break.”
He continued, “The last six years of my life, I always had a job to go to.”
Now that Holland is getting some much-deserved R&R, he will have some more time to focus on his budding relationship with the ‘Euphoria’ actress.
Tom’s break from movies will allow more time with Z
The actor revealed he found companionship in Zendaya and his other ‘Spidey’ co-star, Jacob Batalon, from the get-go.
Zendaya became his new guide to reality.
“Having her in my life was so instrumental to my sanity,” he says. “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.’”
Zendaya was instrumental to Tom’s sanity
The couple long squashed romance rumors, but they could no longer deny their attraction for one another and were caught packing on PDA in his car the past summer.
The Blast reported in July on their steamy car kissing session.
While fans were obsessing over this moment, Holland and Zendaya felt very different about their kiss getting captured by paparazzi.
He told GQ, “We sort of felt robbed of our privacy. I don’t think it’s about not being ready [to talk about it]. It’s just that we didn’t want to…”
“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,” Holland says. “I’ve always been really adamant to keep my private life private, because I share so much of my life with the world anyway.”

Both Holland and Zendaya have taken the narrative of their relationship into their own hands.
Now, they publicly dote on one another on social media.
He’s posted countless pictures of his girlfriend on his personal IG timeline, so much so, that fans are starting to call it a “Zendaya Fan Page” account.
They’ve both opened up about one another in interviews, fawning over one another’s talents.
