Tom Holland, Zendaya, Benedict & Jacob talk about whether they have seen the movie, going to the world premiere and being glad to not have to lie about the movie anymore, bringing family to see it, Benedict skateboarding and Tom snowboarding as soon as he finished filming, what the younger cast has learned from Benedict, and Jacob and Tom living together.
Zendaya Stops Tom Holland in His Tracks When She Shows Up to ‘Spider-Man’ Premiere
When Zendaya comes through all things stop, including Tom Holland. ET’s Nischelle Turner spoke to Holland at the Los Angeles premiere of their new film, Spider-Man: No Way Home, Monday night, when Holland stopped mid-conversation to watch his leading lady make her way onto the red carpet.
“I think Zendaya just showed up,” Holland said as the screams and cheers from the crowd grew louder and louder. “That sounds like Zendaya just showed up.”
Both Turner and Holland then turned to catch a glimpse of the fashion icon before confirming that it was indeed Zendaya entering the premiere.
While Holland is clearly in awe of his 25-year-old co-star, he’s just as blown away by his journey joining the Spider-Man franchise.
“I honestly feel a little bit numb,” Holland admitted. “This been the most incredible experience. This whole journey from the day I got cast. My agent’s here and we were just talking about the moment I got my first callback, and we thought, ‘Oh, wow, maybe I could actually get this film.’ And here we are promoting Spider-Man 3. I am blown away. To share it with my friends and my family. Honestly, this means the world.”
And it looks like there could be more to Holland’s Spider-Man story, with President of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige telling ET that he wants Holland back for the next trilogy superhero series, announced by No Way Home producer Amy Pascal earlier this month.
“Well, that’s great news,” Holland gushed. “That’s awesome. Kevin is the king. Amy is the queen. They’re like my parents. I love them to bits. And if they’ll have me back, I’ll be there.”
After speaking to ET, Holland returned to the carpet where he posed for pictures with the Spider-Man cast and posed for a few solo shots with Zendaya.
While Holland went classic in a dark brown suit, Zendaya kept the spider theme she brought to the film’s London photo call alive, wearing a black, mesh dress that featured a plunging neckline and thigh-high slit. The dress featured black spider web-like sequins throughout. The Euphoria star wore her in cornrow braids, pairing the look with an equally sparkling pair of black heels.
The pair made their red carpet debut as a couple at that London photo call earlier this month, posing together on the red carpet for the first time since the Spider-Man leading man confirmed their relationship in a November interview.
For the event, Holland wore a Celine ensemble, which included a black leather jacket, matching pants and a white collared shirt. As for Zendaya, she rocked an oversized, crystal-adorned Alexander McQueen blazer, that she paired with sparkly tights and spider-web earrings, per Vogue.
In one of the red carpet pics, Holland and Zendaya, look more in love than ever, as they stare into each other’s eyes with smiles on their faces. Other shots feature the pair giggling together, and wrapping their arms around one another.
Zendaya and Tom Holland’s Relationship
From shutting down dating rumors in 2017 to those kissing photos taken four years later.
While Zendaya and Tom Holland have not confirmed nor denied their relationship just yet, those July kissing photos may have done the work for them. Here’s everything you need to know about the supposed couple, from the rumors that started it all to where they stand now.
The pair meet on the set of Spider-Man: Homecoming. “We are like the best of friends. She’s so great and amazing,” Holland tells People at the time. “I’m a little worried [about dealing with fame…but] Zendaya is super famous and she’s been through this, and I just call her up and say, ‘How do I manage being famous?’ I’m very glad I have a friend like her.”
Rumors first surface thanks to the chemistry they display during the Spider-Man press tour. Though they deny dating rumors, sources say they are keeping their relationship quiet. “They started seeing each other while they were filming Spider-Man,” a source tells People in July 2017. “They’ve been super careful to keep it private and out of the public eye, but they’ve gone on vacations with each other and try and spend as much time as possible with one another.”
In the same article another source claims they share a sense of humor: “They’re both really ambitious and they challenge each other, but most importantly, they make each other crack up. They seem to have a really similar sense of humor and love joking around together. They have great banter back and forth.”
That shared sense of humor is eventually utilized to shoot down the dating rumors. “Wait wait…my favorite is when it says we go on vacations together HA! I haven’t been on a vacation in years! hbu @TomHolland1996 ???” Zendaya tweets, to which Holland responds, “Does the press tour count.”
Holland posts a pic of Zendaya in her 2018 Met Gala ensemble, writing, “All hail the queen. Killing it mate .”
Zendaya and her Euphoria costar Jacob Elordi spark dating rumors of their own in August 2019, when they are spotted together on vacation in Greece. They never actually confirm they are dating, but paparazzi catch Elordi giving her a kiss in New York City in February 2020. By September, however, he seems to have moved on to Kaia Gerber.
Meanwhile, Holland goes Instagram-official with girlfriend Nadia Parks on July 27, 2020, when he posts a photo of the actor on Instagram.
According to a source speaking to the Daily Mail, Parks moves in with Holland after London went into lockdown. “They made the decision to isolate together and things have been going great between them,” its source says. “Tom has told friends and family they’re in an official relationship and living together so soon into their romance has only made them stronger.”

July 1: Plot twist: It looks like Holland and Parks are no more! On this important day for Zendaya and Tom Holland shippers, the pair are photographed kissing in Holland’s car while stopped at a red light in Los Angeles. According to Page Six, which shares the photos, the actors are spotted in the Silver Lake neighborhood with Zendaya’s mom, Claire Stoermer, that same day.
Fans on Twitter are undeniably excited. At pub time, not only is Zendaya trending worldwide on the app, but Tom Holland, “Peter,” and “#SpiderManNoWayHome” are listed as trending topics as well. “FUCKING FINALLY. TOM HOLLAND AND ZENDAYA ARE OFFICIALLY TOGETHER,” one excited user tweets. Another adds, “THIS IS NOT A DRILL. I REPEAT THIS IS NOT A DRILL.”
July 23: A source tells Us Weekly that Zendaya and Holland keep each other grounded. “They both challenge each other and balance each other out,” the source says, adding that Holland “makes her laugh,” while Zendaya ”really helps guide him through the world of celebrity.”

September 1: In honor of Zendaya’s birthday, Tom Holland shares a mirror selfie of the alleged couple on the Spider-Man set on Instagram. In the caption he writes in character as Peter Parker: “My MJ, have the happiest of birthdays. Gimme a call when your [sic] up xxx.” If Holland is trying to be discreet about their real-life romance by doing a birthday tribute in character as Peter Parker, it’s not working.
In what felt like an instant, “My MJ” starts trending on Twitter as fans express their excitement about the unconfirmed couple.
September 11: It took a while, but Zendaya finally posts those Venice Film Festival photos of her stunning leather Balmain dress to Instagram, and we’re not the only ones who think she looked fire.

Zendaya immediately starts giggling. Sadly, this exchange is the closest thing to a confirmation that Zendaya and Tom Holland are dating that we’ve ever gotten in the press.
November 17: In an interview with GQ, Tom Holland opened up–kind of, sort of, not really–about his relationship with Zendaya.
“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 said.
Although the world knows they’re a couple, it’s still important to Holland to keep his private life private. “I’ve always been really adamant to keep my private life private because I share so much of my life with the world anyway,” he said. “We sort of felt robbed of our privacy. I don’t think it’s about not being ready—it’s just that we didn’t want to [talk about it].”
Holland also refuses to discuss details of his relationship without Zendaya present. “You know, I respect her too much to say…this isn’t my story,” he continued. “It’s our story. And we’ll talk about what it is when we’re ready to talk about it together.”
December 5: The pair practically make heart eyes at each other on the red carpet of a London photo call for their movie Spider-Man: No Way Home. During an interview on the carpet, Holland points out Zendaya, saying, “There she is—looking beautiful, might I add.”
He also opens up about their “companionship” and how they deal with fame: “Two friends coming together, experiencing this world, going through the same problems at the same time, having a shoulder to cry on, has been a huge thing for the pair of us, and with Jacob [Batalon] as well,” he says, per BuzzFeed. “We really are a family.”
Zendaya later adds, “Sometimes you just have to be a person to vent to, someone to just be there and listen…. I was lucky enough where my life didn’t change overnight. I started when I was young, so it was kind of like a slow progression. I kind of got to learn it as I went and figure it out and get my footing a little bit, whereas for him it was so much all at once. I have an extreme amount of empathy for that, so anything that I learned or have learned or continue to learn, I share with him, and anything he learns he shares with me.”
