Zendaya and Tom Holland were reported to be dating prior to the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming, but according to Zendaya, theyre just friends.
An inside source told E! news about a month back that the two had started a relationship:
“They got to know each other while on set. They became friends and started getting romantic a few months ago,” an insider shared with us. “They both are such great people. It’s cool they got together. Everyone gets along with them. They are very well liked on set. Tom is the most down to earth actor.”
The two certainly do seem to have some chemistry on and off screen, but Zendaya is now denying these reports.
“He’s a great dude. He’s literally one of my best friends,” Zendaya remarked.
Either she is saying this to keep their relationship a secret, or she has flat out Friend-Zoned Tom Holland… ouch! Tom has yet to speak on the matter, so we don’t really know his opinions as of yet.
Zendaya also added:
“This past how 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.”
The reports of their relationship probably came about because they had such a great relationship while doing press tours. Either way, they do seem to be great friends, which is all that really matters, right?
