AceShowbiz - Zendaya Coleman and Tom Holland apparently have ignored the love-life advice given by the "Spider-Man: No Way Home" producer. The actors were initially warned against dating each other by Amy Pascal.
"I took Tom and Zendaya aside, separately, when we first cast them and gave them a lecture," Amy told the New York Times. The 63-year-old former Chairperson of the Motion Pictures Group of Sony Pictures Entertainment added, "Don't go there -- just don't. Try not to."
Amy, who also oversaw the first five "Spider-Man" films, added that Tom and Zendaya weren't the first leading actors she'd tried to warn against coupling up either. "I gave the same advice to [Andrew Garfield] and [Emma Stone]," she explained. "It can just complicate things, you know?" Despite her cautioning, she unveiled that the stars all came to the same conclusion, adding, "They all ignored me."
Andrew reportedly dated Emma in 2011. The "The Amazing Spider-Man" co-stars, who played Peter Parker and his girlfriend Gwen Stacy respectively, went their separate ways in 2015 after four years of dating.
"There is definitely still love for each other there," a source confirmed their split at the time. "They remain close and are on good terms." Months before their breakup, a separate source said, "It was always a 'break' due to schedules. They have been really busy, so they finally have had time to see each other again."
Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst also had a very similar situation. Sam Raimi, director of the first "Spider-Man" trilogy, told the Sydney Morning-Herald back in 2007, "They apparently began dating with each other, I think, in the middle of the first movie...although I didn't know it at the time."
However, their relationship didn't last long. "They eventually broke up before the second movie. I was concerned they wouldn't get the same chemistry back, but it was just me worrying," he explained. "They really like each other, I think, very much. And that relationship probably just added to their ability to trust each other."
"I've spent the last six years being so focused on my career," the "Cherry" actor said on December 15. He added, "I want to take a break and focus on starting a family and figuring out what I want to do outside of this world."
Tom also shared that he's looking forward to becoming a father one day. "I love kids. I can't wait to be a dad -- I can wait and I will, but I can't wait," the 25-year-old star explained. "If I'm at a wedding or a party, I'm always at the kids' table hanging out," before reflecting on his father, Dominic Holland, "My dad's been such a great role model for me. I think I've got that from him. So I think I'd be a primary school teacher or something like that."
