It seems Spider-Man: Homecoming’s Tom Holland and Zendaya are the latest stars of the movie franchise to catch the romance bug on set after it was revealed they are, in fact, now dating in real life.
Kirsten Dunst and Tobey Maguire embarked on a relationship while shooting ‘Spider-Man’ in 2002, and ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ co-stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone enjoyed a three-year romance until 2015…
The two lead stars of the latest movie have also fallen for one another and though they have been trying to keep their romance out of the spotlight, insiders claim they have been spending a lot of time together.
“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,” a source told People magazine.
The 21-year-old actor and the 20-year-old actress “challenge” one another but they also have a lot of fun and are always “joking around” together.
The source said: “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 humour and love joking around together. They have great banter back and forth.”
Tom – who plays the web slinger – previously described Zendaya – Spider-Man’s school pal Michelle – as his “best friend” and praised her for helping him navigate fame.
He said: “We are like the best of friends. She’s so great and amazing.
“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.”
