Ever since Tom Holland and Zendaya met on the set of “Spider-Man: Homecoming”, the pair have shared a special connection, and fans believe that they are secretly dating.
Speaking in Variety’s Power of Young Hollywood August 2017 issue, Zendaya said: “We are friends. He’s a great dude. He’s literally one of my best friends.”
Meanwhile, Holland explained to British GQ that the actress guided him through being in the spotlight.
He said: “Talking to Zendaya’s helped me a lot, actually. I used to come across sometimes as a bit of a d–k to fans, mainly as I was always so surprised that they’d want a picture with me or signature or whatever. I’d have a typical Londoner reaction, one of instant suspicion: ‘Why are you talking to me?'”
He also talked about how “nerve-wracking” it is to be in a relationship as a public figure.
In his words: “It means that if you are dating someone, you have to be really conscious of their feelings, because if something does happen between the two of you, it’s not just happening between the two of you, it’s happening in front of the entire world. And it can be very complicated. It’s one of the things I worry about most, of all the things in my career.”
Amidst all the dating rumours, the co-stars have made a good attempt to keep their dating lives private.
So we have compiled 5 Reasons we believe Tom Holland and Zendaya are secretly dating.

Dining out with parents
If you’re seriously involved with a girl, then meeting her parents is a big step to show commitment. According to Page Six, Tom was spotted charming Zendaya and her parents at Bobby Van’s Central Park South, a restaurant in NYC.
Some media outlets also reported spotting the duo getting plenty friendly with each other on Friday, 2 July, when they were photographed together in Los Angeles leaving a meet-up with Zendaya’s mom, Claire Stoermer, and having a smooch session in Holland’s Audi sports car afterwards.
They both have such good things to say about each other
Both Zendaya and Holland always say the cutest things about each other. For instance, when Zendaya slew the red carpet at the Met Gala in 2018, Tom posted her to his Instagram, calling her a queen.
When they both appeared on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter in 2016, Zendaya called Tom “the very best.”
Here’s to hoping that they are really an item.
