They’ve shared the screen together in three ‘Spider Man’ movies, but it appears Tom has a bone to pick with his on-screen love and real-life love.
The main cast of “Spider Man: No Way Home” stopped by the “Graham Norton Show” on Friday, December 3.
In true Graham Norton fashion, no topic is off limits, so of course, their height difference became a topic of discussion.
For reference, Holland is 5-foot-7-inches and Zendaya is 5-foot-10-inches.
Zendaya recalled a particular stunt where Spider Man swings him and MJ on top of a bridge and places her down gently.

“He supposed to gently rest MJ on the bridge and walk away from her. Because of our height difference, obviously if we are on the same point, we were attached, I would land before him. My feet obviously hit the ground before he does,” Zendaya explained.
At this point, Holland seemed to be in a bit of disbelief, but then agreed with his girlfriend.
Zendaya then turned the storytelling duties over to Holland.
“So, Zendaya would land and I’m the superhero, I’m supposed to look cool,” he said humorously. “So, she would land like this and my feet would swing from underneath me and she would catch me.”
The two proceeded to act out the stunt and got a roar of laughter from the crowd.
Zendaya dipped into her “Spidey senses”
“They’d yell ‘CUT,’ and I’d be like, ‘Stop doing that,’” Tom said.
Being the ever-supportive girlfriend, Zendaya added, “You were actually very lovely about it. You were like, ‘Oh my gosh, thank you.’”
Zendaya and Tom began dating in the summer.
The Blast reported in July on their steamy car makeout session.
While fans were living for 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, and fawned over one another’s talents.
Earlier this week, the couple made their red carpet debut as a couple at Paris’ Ballon D’Or, which is the equivalent of the Oscars in soccer.
