Tom Holland and Zendaya star in the new Spider-Man series and are also a couple in real life. The duo has been doing the promotional rounds for Spider-Man: No Way Home and recently in an interview they were seen addressing their height difference and how it was a struggle to get stunts done. Tom Holland and Zendaya were seen on The Graham Norton Show along with The Witcher star Henry Cavil when they talked about a particular stunt that was difficult to nail. It was all because Zendaya is taller than Tom.
Zendaya, who is 5’10”, recalled, “There’s a particular stunt where Spider-Man swings us on top of a bridge, and he places me there. 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.” Prompting Holland she said, “So, what would happen?”
Tom continued that there is a bottom mark which the actor is suppose to follow to not bust your kneecaps, “The ‘bottom mark’ is a thing that they do in stunts that are basically designed to stop you from shattering your kneecaps.” The Spider-Man star said, “I’m the superhero. I’m supposed to look cool.” But Tom would miss his step and Zendaya has to sweep him in his arms.
Meanwhile, talking about Zendaya and Tom’s romance, the duo were rumoured to be dating back in 2017, but their relationship was confirmed when the two were spotted kissing on a date.
Spider-Man; Now Way Home will hit the theatres on December 17, but it will release a day earlier in India.
