During a joint interview on “The Graham Norton Show” on Friday night, Tom Holland and Zendaya seemed content to joke about their two-inch height difference.
“There’s a particular stunt where Spider-Man swings us on top of a bridge and he places me there,” Zendaya, 25, said, adding that Holland, who she is dating, is supposed to “gently” rest her on the bridge before walking away.
“Because of our height difference… we were attached, so I would land before him,” the actress, who is two inches taller than Holland, explained. “My feet obviously hit the ground before he does.”
Holland, also 25, jumped in to finish the story. “I’m the superhero. I’m supposed to look cool,” he said as his girlfriend laughed along with the audience.
“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,” he explained.
Zendaya held up one of Holland’s legs as he wrapped his arms around her shoulders for support as the couple attempted to demonstrate their stunt landing.
Zendaya went on to say that even though Holland didn’t nail his superhero landing, he was still a gentleman about it.
She said, “You were like, ‘Oh my gosh, thank you’.
“It’s so nice to be caught for a change,” he responded with a laugh.
The interview comes just a few days after the couple was spotted kissing at the Ballon d’Or 2021 awards in Paris on Tuesday.
After opting not to walk the red carpet together, the “Spider-Man” stars were photographed with their arms wrapped around each other.
