Tom Holland And Zendaya Shares Hilarious Story About Their Height Difference

Zendaya and Holland's third Spider-Man movie together, No Way Home, will release on December 17.

Tom Holland is the superhero in the Spider-Man franchise, however, he stands several inches shorter than Zendaya. During an appearance on The Graham Norton Show on Friday, the Spider-Man: No Way Home stars told a hilarious story about how the inches between the two created some issues while shooting stunts for the upcoming flick.

Zendaya explained, “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.”

However, she further prompted Holland, “So, what would happen?” The spider-Man star then replied that the couple was utilizing a safety procedure called a “bottom mark” for the scene. “The ‘bottom mark’ is a thing that they do in stunts that are basically designed to stop you from shattering your kneecaps,” he said before lamenting: “I’m the superhero. I’m supposed to look cool.”

Holland then continued, getting up to demonstrate, “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.” To his credit, Zendaya joked that Holland was “very lovely” about it. “You were like, ‘Oh my gosh, thank you,'” she said. “It’s so nice to be caught for a change,” he laughed.

While he’s now embracing how tall he stands, Holland recently revealed during an interview for GQ’s Men of the Year issue that he used to do anything he could to conceal his true height. “I’d do this thing on red carpets where I would stand closer to the photographers than the people behind me,” he revealed. As he’s aged, Holland said he’s found confidence in controlling what he can. “I cannot do anything about my height,” he told GQ. “I can put on more muscle.”

The dating humor of Zendaya and Tom Holland first swirled the internet in July 2017. However, last month, Holland spoke about his bond with Zendaya and his desire to keep his personal life private during an interview with GQ. Zendaya and Holland’s third Spider-Man movie together, No Way Home, will release on December 17.
