If you’re still not sure how Tom Holland interrupted an interview to watch his girlfriend, Zendaya, as she walked the Spider-Man: No Coming Home red carpet (and let’s face it, shall we?) – well, get ready. In leaked footage that began posting to Twitter on Friday, Tom Holland can be heard quietly saying to Zendaya, “You look beautiful, honey,” not once but twice. (Which, again, wouldn’t you?) In one clip, you can see Zendaya respond, “So do you. I’ve said it once, and I’ve said it again: Name me a more iconic duo! I’ll wait!
In case you missed it: Zendaya and Tom Holland, while fairly low-key, have been officially dating for at least eight months. He calls her “my MJ” on Instagram; she calls him “my Spider-Man”; they were photographed wearing shirts with each other’s names on them; and last winter, Tom opened up to QG about photographs of the two kissing, saying, “A moment you think is between two people who love each other very much is now a moment shared with the whole world.” The two have been romantically linked since they first starred together in Spider-Man: Homecoming in 2016, but shot down rumors for years — and dated other people — before finally reuniting in 2021.
In the images, which began to be shared on Twitter on Friday, Holland, dressed in a white shirt, black hoodie and very Peter Parker glasses, jokes: “I feel badly dressed now.” He is seated next to Zendaya, who is wearing a striped silk shirt. “You look beautiful,” he adds to Zendaya, and she puts her hand on his knee, and I melt.
In a second clip, Holland and Zendaya talk quietly amid the hubbub surrounding them, and Tom tells her, softly — and clearly without realizing the mic would pick it up — “You look so beautiful, honey.” You can pretty much hear Zendaya respond, “You too.” To quote the fan who uploaded the clip: “I’m fed up.”
Need another reason to fall for these two? Earlier this month, Twitter user @charliebroiled wrote: “thinking about when i met tom holland and asked if zendaya was as beautiful a girl as he was on camera and he said ‘oh even more.'”
