Zendaya and Tom Holland talk about ‘invasive’ kissing photos

Tom Holland and Zendaya set the internet on fire over the summer when photos emerged of the Spider Man co-stars kissing in a car. While the footage served as confirmation of the date fans were waiting for, the cast had a very different reaction when the paparazzi snaps were released.

“One of the downsides to our fame is that privacy is no longer really in our control, and a moment that you think is between two people who love each other very much is now a moment shared with the whole world,” Holland recount GQ. “I’ve always been very determined to keep my privacy private, because I share a lot of my life with the world anyway… we kind of felt deprived of our privacy.”

Holland says it wasn’t that they weren’t ready to talk about their relationship, “it’s just that we didn’t want to.”

Zendaya also spoke to the publication of the photos seen around the world, calling them “quite weird and weird and confusing and intrusive.”

“The equal feeling [we both share] it’s just that when you really love someone and you care about someone, certain times or things, you wish they were yours, “she said.” I think loving someone is a sacred thing and a special thing and something that you want to face and go through and experience and enjoy among the two people who love each other. “

Holland made it clear that the photos were not staged, as some people have speculated. In fact, he always tries to figure out how the photographer took the photo, as he is careful when going out in public.

Zendaya and Holland, both 25, prepare for a global press tour for Spider-Man: No Path Home. The actors are both cautious when discussing their private lives and he explains that this is partly because it’s a discussion they need to have together.

“It’s not a conversation I can have without her,” he explains. “You know, I respect her too much to tell … It’s not my story. It’s our story. And we’ll talk about what it is when we’re ready to talk about it together.”

Holland isn’t shy about discussing the impact his girlfriend has had on his life and how she helps him sail to fame.

“Having him in my life has been so critical to my mental health,” he says. “She’s so good at being the role model for young boys and girls. When someone comes, like, ‘Can I have a picture?’ It’s never a bad time. While my first reaction was, ‘Why are you talking to me? Leave me alone.’ “
