“Spider-Man” co-stars Zendaya and Tom Holland solidified their offscreen romance with a passionate makeout session in Los Angeles on Thursday.
Zendaya, Tom Holland finally confirm they’re dating with steamy car makeout
The couple were photographed packing on the PDA at a red light during a sunset drive in Holland’s $125,000 Audi sports car. The “Cherry” actor 25, could be seen holding Zendaya’s face closely as he leaned in to kiss the “Euphoria” star, 24.
At one point, the pair were spotted smiling and acting silly while inside the car. Holland then stared lovingly at Zendaya and caressed her chin. Exclusive – Spidey Gets His Girl!

They were seen in the Silver Lake neighborhood of LA, where we’re told Zendaya’s mother, Claire Stoermer, resides. Stoermer was pictured walking out of a residence with the famous duo the same day, so perhaps things are getting serious if Holland is already hanging out with the fam.
Zendaya appeared stunning with no makeup while rocking a half-up, half-down hairdo. She was seen wearing a white crop top and turquoise jeans. Holland also opted for comfortable attire. The “Captain America: Civil War” star wore a white T-shirt, blue flannel shirt, black shorts and white sneakers.
Rumors that “Tomdaya” are an item have been floating around for years. Following their starring roles in 2017’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” — in which Holland played Peter Parker and Zendaya portrayed his classmate Michelle — sources said they had started seeing each other.
“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,” an insider told People in July 2017.
Zendaya and Tom Holland
The couple were first rumored to be dating in 2017. At the time, the pair laughed off the report on social media.
“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 tweeted.
Just five months later, Page Six spies spotted the actors at the Central Park South location of Bobby Van’s Steakhouse in New York City, where onlookers said Holland “charmed [Zendaya’s] parents.”
Sources previously said the pair “have a really similar sense of humor and love joking around together.” It is unclear for how much longer that rumored fling continued because by July 2019, Holland was spotted holding hands with Olivia Bolton in London’s Hyde Park.
However, sources told The Sun in April 2020 that Holland and Bolton had broken up and wanted to just “be friends.”
Zendaya also moved on during her supposed break from the English star, getting cozy with her “Euphoria” castmate Jacob Elordi on numerous occasions between August 2019 and March 2020.
With a third “Spider-Man” movie, “No Way Home,” slated to hit theaters later this year, the timing of it all seems to have worked out well for “Tomdaya,” who appear to be very much back on.
Reps for Zendaya and Holland did not immediately return requests for comment.
Zendaya and Tom Holland Walk Their First Red Carpet Together Since Confirming Their Relationship
Tom Holland and Zendaya are going public about their romance in a big way! On Sunday, the couple posed together on the red carpet for the first time since the Spider-Man leading man confirmed their relationship in a November interview.
The milestone moment came during a London photo call for the pair’s upcoming flick, Spiderman: No Way Home, on Sunday.
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, both 25, 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.
The couple also posed inside the event, where they continued to goof around and exchange loving gazes.
The red carpet pics came less than a week after Holland and Zendaya stepped out for the Ballon D’Or, an annual soccer ceremony in Paris, France. The two walked the red carpet separately at that event, but posed inside the soiree for a loved-up pic, which was shared by British Vogue.
The public outings follow Holland’s GQ interview, in which he confirmed his relationship with Zendaya, after speculation began in July when they were photographed kissing in his car. While speaking to the magazine, Holland opened up about those paparazzi pics.
“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,” he said, adding that he and Zendaya felt “robbed of our privacy” after the photos came out.
“It’s not a conversation that I can have without her,” Holland added. “… This isn’t my story. It’s our story. And we’ll talk about what it is when we’re ready to talk about it together.”
Zendaya Loves How ‘Charismatic’ Tom Holland Is—Here’s How He Compares to Her Exes
Zendaya, for her part, has always been notoriously private about her dating life. While the Malcolm & Marie actress has been linked to everyone from co-stars to athletes, it’s very rare that fans hear about her love life directly from her. In her October 2021 British Vogue cover story, Zendaya played coy when asked about her current relationship status and joked about the hurdles any would-be suitor would have to jump over in order to date her. The Dune star noted that there’s a long list of family members who insert themselves into her dating life—”my dad, my brothers, it’s a whole thing,” she explained, adding. “Good luck to whoever wants to take that on.” (I mean, we can surely think of many who would love the opportunity).
The multi-hyphenate star also opened up about refusing to have her first kiss on camera when she starred as Rocky on Shake It Up on the Disney Channel. “I remember being on Shake It Up and being like, ‘I’m not gonna do this,” she told British Vogue. “I’m going to kiss him on the cheek because I haven’t been kissed yet so I don’t want the kiss to be on camera.” TBH, she had every right to wait on her first kiss when she felt ready for it—and obviously, there have been plenty of lucky dates who have had the chance to lock lips with her since.
For everything we know about who Zendaya’s boyfriend is in 2021—along with every other guy she’s reportedly dated throughout the years—just keep on reading below.
Zendaya and Trevor Jackson (2012 – 2016)
Zendaya and Trevor first sparked dating rumors in 2013 after the Disney Channel alum appeared in a music video for his “Like We Grown” music video. In the clip, Zendaya portrayed his love interest—and the scene clearly left fans speculating that there was something more going on behind the scenes.
The pair addressed the rumors in 2014, with Zendaya telling HipHollywood, “There’s going to be those [rumors] but he’s my best friend in the whole world. I love him to death. That’s all it is.” Trevor, for his part, also denied the dating rumors at the time: “We be laughing every time we hear it. I can understand why people think that because we are really close,” he told the site. “But, no she’s just my friend.”
Years later, however, Zendaya opened up about a secret relationship she had from 2012 to 2016 in an interview with Vogue. While she didn’t name any names for her “first love,” the timeline with Trevor certainly adds up.
Zendaya and Odell Beckham Jr. (2016)
Zendaya was briefly linked to NFL player Odell Beckham Jr. after they were spotted leaving a party together in 2016. Her dad, however, denied any rumors of a relationship between his daughter and the football star. “There’s no relationship. We’re just friends. When you see my daughter out on a date without me, it’s a relationship,” he told TMZ at the time, joking that Zendaya’s outing with Beckham Jr. was just “like an audition” for him to witness.
Zendaya and Jacob Elordi (2019 – 2020)
Zendaya and Jacob Elordi met on the set of HBO’s Euphoria in 2018. The pair were first romantically linked months after the series premiere in August 2019 when they were spotted vacationing in Greece together. According to a source who spoke to Us Weekly at the time, “They looked like they were getting a little cozy.”
The Kissing Booth star, for his part, downplayed his relationship with Zendaya in an interview with GQ later that year, telling the magazine that his HBO co-star was like his “sister.” But by February 2020, the pair were spotted kissing and looking absolutely giddy together in New York City. Their romance appeared to fizzle out sometime after, as Elordi was soon linked to his current girlfriend, model Kaia Gerber.
Zendaya and Tom Holland (2017, 2021 – Present)
Zendaya and Tom Holland have sparked romance rumors ever since they met on the set of Spider-Man: Homecoming in 2016. Speculation reached its peak in 2017 during the pair’s promotional tour for the film, with many assuming that the duo were secretly an item. Zendaya shut down the rumors at the time, telling Variety, “We are friends. He’s a great dude. He’s literally one of my best friends. This past how[ever] many months, we’ve had to do press tours together. There’s very few people that will understand what that’s like at 20 years old.”
While rumors quieted for a few years, the Spider-Man co-star reignited talks of romance in July 2021. The pair were photographed sharing a passionate kiss in Holland’s car. The photos—which you can see here—pretty much broke the internet. A source who spoke to People at the time confirmed the relationship, revealing, “They started seeing each other while they were filming Spider-Man. 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.”
The insider continued, “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.”
While Tom and Zendaya have continued to play coy about their relationship, the actress spoke about what she appreciates most about her rumored beau in her November 2021 InStyle interview. “There are many things, obviously, that I appreciate,” she told the magazine. “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. And seeing him at work, even though he’s not a Virgo, he is a perfectionist.”
In an interview with GQ in 2021, Tom revealed what Zendaya taught him about fame. “Having her in my life was so instrumental to my sanity,” he said. “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.’” Tom also discussed the 2021 photo of him and Zendaya kissing, which he saw as an invasion of his “privacy.” “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,” he said. “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 says. “We sort of felt robbed of our privacy.”
Zendaya added, “It was quite strange and weird and confusing and invasive. The equal sentiment [we both share] is just that when you really love and care about somebody, some moments or things, you wish were your own.… I think loving someone is a sacred thing and a special thing and something that you want to deal with and go through and experience and enjoy amongst the two people that love each other.”
When asked how he and Zendaya started dating, Tom told GQ, “I don’t think it’s about not being ready. It’s just that we didn’t want to. It’s not a conversation that I can have without her. You know, I respect her too much to say… This isn’t my story. It’s our story. And we’ll talk about what it is when we’re ready to talk about it together.”
As for what Zendaya thinks of Tom, the former Disney Channel star gushed to GQ about her co-star. “He’s a fun time,” she said. “Very charismatic, can make anybody feel comfortable and have a good laugh and a good chat. A good chat—I sound so British.”
Tom and Zendaya finally confirmed their relationship over on Instagram on her 25th birthday on 1 September. Alongside a sweet selfie taken during a break from filming Spider-Man he wrote: “My MJ, have the happiest of birthdays. Gimme a call when you’re up xxx.”
Zendaya is back on our screens in the new Spider-Man as well as Euphoria season two, months after taking her new relationship with boyfriend Tom Holland public.
Zendaya’s net worth is estimated to be $15 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth and she’s only 25, so at this rate, she’s probably going to take over the world by 30.
His two sons are named Austin Stoermer Coleman and Julien Stoermer Coleman, while his daughters are Katianna Stoermer Coleman, Anabella Stoermer Coleman and Kaylee Stoermer Coleman. These siblings are much older than Zendaya, and they all already have kids of their own, which means Kazembe has several grandchildren.
