In an interview with SiriusXM before release Spider-Man: There’s no way home – in which Holland plays the superhero and Zendaya portrays his love interest, Mary Jane (MJ) – the pair say their height difference has never affected them.
“She’s not much taller than me, let’s just put this out there,” Holland said, adding that it was a “stupid assumption” that their height would affect their height. relationship.
Zendaya, 25, is 5 ft 10 inches, while Holland, 25, is 5 ft 8 inches.
“This is also normal,” said Zendaya. “My mother is taller than my father. Honestly, I never thought about it because my parents were always like that so I didn’t know people cared. I don’t have its structure. “
Fans discussed the couple’s height difference on social media after appearing on The Graham Norton Show, as the pair joked that it made the stunts more difficult during filming.
Explaining the scene to the TV presenter, Zendaya said that their height meant she would land before Holland, even though he was Spider-Man.
“There was a particular scene where Spider-Man swings us over the top of the bridge, and he puts me there,” she said.
“He had to gently put MJ on the bridge and step away from her. [But] because of our height difference… I’m going to land before him, my feet are obviously touching the ground before he lands.”
Holland added: “And I’m a superhero. I have to look cool.”
The couple’s on-screen and off-screen relationship became public in July when the paparazzi captured them kissing outside her home in Los Angeles.
In an interview for GQ’s Man of the Year published last month, Holland said the couple felt “robbed” of their privacy.
“We feel robbed of our privacy. I don’t think it’s not ready yet. We just don’t want to.”
