And we’ll talk about what it is when we’re ready to talk about it together,” he said at the time. Holland spoke about his bond with Zendaya and his desire to keep his personal life private during an interview with GQ. He said, “One of the downsides of our fame is that privacy isn’t really in our control anymore.”
The Spiderman star added, “a moment that you think is between two people that love each other very much is now a moment that is shared with the entire world.” The Uncharted actor added, “I’ve always been really adamant to keep my private life private because I share so much of my life with the world anyway. We sort of felt robbed of our privacy. I don’t think it’s about not being ready. It’s just that we didn’t want to.”
