Zendaya has given us a new hint at what’s going on in her romantic life.
The Euphoria star praised her longtime friend and rumored boyfriend, Tom Holland, in her November cover interview for InStyle. When asked what she appreciates about the Spider-Man actor, she indeed gushed over her costar; however, she focused on his work ethic and dedication to playing the superhero.
“There are many things, obviously, that I appreciate. In an actor way, I appreciate that he really loves being Spider-Man. It’s a lot of pressure—you take on the role of a superhero wherever you go. To the little kid who walks by, you are Spider-Man. I think he handled that so well,” she said.
She also shared her experience watching Holland perform multiple takes while filming the Marvel Cinematic Universe trilogy.
“And seeing him at work, even though he’s not a Virgo [laughs], he is a perfectionist,” she said, referring to her own sun sign. “Our director allowed me to come in every day [of the shoot], and it was cool to see how he cares so much about his work and making it right. I watched him do a fight scene all day, which is exhausting. He’d do a move, come back to the monitors, watch it, and say, ‘I can do that better.’ I’d be like, ‘Dude, you got it.’ But he wants us to be perfect, and I really appreciate that.”

Though she didn’t confirm her relationship in the interview, it did seem like she’s been spending a lot of time with the British actor.
“Yeah, he’s a fun time,” she said. “Very charismatic, can make anybody feel comfortable and have a good laugh and a good chat. A good chat—I sound so British.”
The pair were photographed kissing in a car in L.A. last July. And though neither of them has spoken publicly about their relationship, they have shared several sweet moments, including Holland’s Instagram tribute for Zendaya’s 25th birthday last month. The Brit, also 25, shared a pic of the pair looking in a mirror in a makeup trailer on set of the MCU trilogy.
“My MJ, have the happiest of birthdays. Gimme a call when your up xxx,” he wrote.
