Zendaya shoots down rumors that she’s dating ‘Spider-Man’ co-star Tom Holland


It’s no secret that Spider-Man: Homecoming co-stars Zendaya and Tom Holland get along well—the two went viral earlier this month after Holland won their Lip Sync Battle with an iconic performance of Rihanna‘s “Umbrella.”

But the rumor mill took things one step further Thursday, when People magazine revealed a “source” had told them the co-stars were actually dating. Twitter immediately caught fire with excited fans revved up for an Andrew Garfield/Emma Stone cast romance sequel:

The celebration was short-lived, though. Zendaya chimed in a few hours later on Twitter and laid the rumors to rest.

“My favorite is when it says we go on vacations together,” she joked. “I haven’t been on a vacation in years! hbu @TomHolland1996???”

Holland replied minutes afterward, asking, “Does the press tour count?” since the pair have had to do a lot of traveling to promote their movie.


And just like that, the book was closed. These two: just co-stars. Now we know!
