During an interview on "The Graham Norton Show" on Friday, December 3, the "Dune" actress revealed how Tom ended up looking less than heroic while filming "Spider-Man: No Way Home". The 25-year-old actress shared, "He's supposed to gently, you know, rest MJ on the bridge and walk away from her."
"Because of our height difference, I obviously would land before him because my feet obviously hit the ground before he does," Zendaya, who is two inches taller than Tom, continued, while her boyfriend giggled beside her. The British actor then added, "So Zendaya would land and I'm the superhero, I'm supposed to look cool."
Tom went on to say, "I would land and my feet would swing from underneath me and then she would catch me." As if the story wasn't clear enough, the pair got up and demonstrated the act. Tom put his one leg resting in Zendaya's arm. Though so, the situation didn't seem to make the "Euphoria" actress any less smitten with the "Chaos Walking" actor. She blushed and told him, "You were actually very lovely about it. You were like, 'Oh my gosh, thank you.' "
Zendaya and Tom have been hiding their real-life relationship less and less over the past few months. As for their romance, J.B. Smoove, who plays Mr. Dell in "Spider-Man: No Way Home", stated that the couple is the "most adorable" pair. "I love those two. I love them so much," the 55-year-old told Entertainment Tonight, calling them "the most adorable couple ever in the history of adorableness."
Tom himself has talked about his desire to keep his personal life private during an interview with GQ in November. "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," so said the "Cherry" leading man.
Tom added, "I've always been really adamant to keep my private life private, because I share so much of my life with the world anyway." The 25-year-old actor went on to say, "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."
Hoping to keep their private lives under wraps, Tom stated that they will have a discussion about revealing details of their relationship when the time is right. "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," he said.
