Zendaya Caught Tom Holland While Filming a Spider-Man Stunt

The stars demonstrated how their height difference affected a stunt sequence in the upcoming film.

Zendaya and Tom Holland had an adorable joint appearance.

The rumored couple kicked off the Spider-Man: No Way Home press tour with an appearance on The Graham Norton Show. During the interview, the pair revealed that their height difference–the Euphoria star is several inches taller than the Spider-Man actor–brought up a challenge while filming a stunt for the superhero film.

“There’s a particular stunt where Spider-Man swings us on top of a bridge, and he places me there,” Zendaya said. “He’s supposed to gently rest MJ on the bridge and walk away from her. Because of our height difference… we were attached, so I would land before him. My feet obviously hit the ground before he does.”

Holland then demonstrated that the safety procedure for the stunt meant that the pair would land in a unique way, with Zendaya holding one of his legs.

“I’m the superhero. I’m supposed to look cool,” he joked. “She would land, and then I would sort of land like this, and then my feet would swing from underneath me, and she would catch me.”

After the cute re-enactment, Zendaya added that Holland was “very lovely” about it, and thanked her after the stunt.

“It’s so nice to be caught for a change,” he responded.

The sweet interview will likely be the first of many during the press run for the upcoming MCU film, which ends Holland’s first trilogy playing the web-slinging hero. Zendaya recently gushed over Holland’s dedication to the role when asked what she appreciates about the British actor in an InStyle interview.

“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.
