“They’ve been super careful to keep it private and out of the public eye, but they’ve gone on vacations with each other and try and spend as much time as possible with one another.”
The source added: “They’re both really ambitious, and they challenge each other — but, most importantly, they make each other crack up. They seem to have a really similar sense of humor and love joking around together. They have great banter back and forth.”
The pair shut down the rumors, however, claimed that they were the “best of friends.”
On July 1, 2021, The Sun then exclusively obtained photos of the pair kissing, reigniting the rumor mill that the pair are in fact dating.
The rumors then intensified in September after Holland uploaded a picture of the pair to Instagram for Zendaya’s birthday, captioning the snap: “My MJ, have the happiest of birthdays. Gimme a call when your up xxx”
In November, after, Holland was named GQ’s Superhero of the Year, Zendaya was seen bragging about her rumored man saying he’s “incredible to watch,” while Spider-Man himself opened up about the struggles of a celerity relationship.
“One of the downsides of our fame is that privacy isn’t really in our control anymore, and 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,” Holland told the media outlet.
“I’ve always been really adamant to keep my private life private, because I share so much of my life with the world anyway,” he continued, adding “We sort of felt robbed of our privacy.”
Holland continued, saying that, “I don’t think it’s about not being ready [to talk about the relationship] It’s just that we didn’t want to.”
While the two continue to attempt to keep their relationship out of the public eye, fans will be able to see their on-screen chemistry in the upcoming film, Spider-Man: No Way Home, which was released in theatres on December 17, 2021.
