Well, well, well — it looks like there may have been some truth to the Tom Holland and Zendaya dating rumors after all. After years of playing coy about their are-they-or-aren’t-they romance, the Spiderman: Homecoming costars were spotted sharing a passionate kiss inside of the actor’s car while stopped at a red light in Los Angeles on Thursday.
Zendaya and Tom have been the subjects of romance rumors ever since they starred together in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. At the time, a source told People that “they started seeing each other while they were filming Spider-Man.” Another insider told the publication, “They’re both really ambitious and they challenge each other — but, most importantly, they make each other crack up. They seem to have a really similar sense of humor and love joking around together. They have great banter back and forth.”
However, both Zendaya and Tom had remained adamant that there was no truth to the rumors. “We are friends,” Zendaya previously told Variety. “He’s a great dude. He’s literally one of my best friends.” Meanwhile, Tom called Zendaya a “mate” in a birthday post back in 2018. Neither Zendaya nor Tom have yet to publicly address the status of their relationship, but the photos speak for themselves.
