Zendaya and Tom Holland’s private romance became public when a photographer captured the two making out in a car at the beginning of July. While Zendaya and Holland have said nothing about the reports since, a source spoke to Us Weekly about their relationship now and dynamic.
“They both challenge each other and balance each other out,” the source said. “Zendaya and Tom started off as really great friends and stayed that way for a long while before things turned romantic.”
That source added that Zendaya, a former Disney Channel star, has made a big difference for Holland as he navigates Marvel superhero fame. “She really helps guide him through the world of celebrity,” the source said.
An insider previously told the outlet on July 9 that the Spider-Man co-stars never intended for people to know about their romantic involvement. “They’re both not one to make their relationship public,” the source said. “They’re private when it comes to dating so any photos that have come out would’ve just been them going about their business and not knowing photographers were around.”
The source added that it’s unsurprising they felt real-life sparks given their connection on screen. (Holland plays Spiderman in the films, while Zendaya is MJ.) “Their chemistry on the set of Spider-Man was off the charts,” the source said. “It was no wonder why they were chosen to play each other’s love interests. Their relationship when they first dated happened naturally. I know they broke up at some point, but they’ve always remained friends.” Zendaya and Holland were first reported to be dating in 2017, although they denied rumors then.
The two have common interests and are both close to their families: “They make a good match because they’re both one of the kindest actors you will meet,” the source said then. “Zendaya is selfless, caring and compassionate, and you can see that in Tom as well.”
That source added that Zendaya and Holland likely are “not rushing into anything serious.”
