Tom Holland and Zendaya adorably poke fun at their height difference

Tom Holland and Zendaya poke fun at their height difference as they reveal how they struggled to film a stunt while shooting Spider-Man


Tom Holland and Zendaya joked about their height difference during a sit down chat with Graham Norton on his BBC show on Friday.

The Spider-Man icon, 25, and his girlfriend and co-star, also 25, discussed how their differing heights meant Tom, at a reported 5 feet 8 inches, couldn’t catch Zendaya, who is a few inches taller, during a stung for their upcoming Spider-Man film.

Zendaya, who plays Mary Jane in Spider-Man: No Way Home: ‘Spider-Man swings us on top of a bridge… and he places me there. We eventually jump off.

‘It’s so nice to be caught for a change!’: Tom Holland and Zendaya adorably poked fun at their height difference as they discussed how it impacted a Spider-Man stunt on Friday’s Graham Norton show

‘He’s supposed to gently place MJ on the bridge and walk away from her. Obviously because of our height difference, if we’re on the same point…’

‘We were attached weren’t we?’ Tom interjected, to which Zendaya agreed, before continuing: ‘We would land at the same point. My feet obviously hit the ground before he does!’ 

This caused the crowd to erupt into laughter, including presenter Graham.

Playfully, he said: ‘Zendaya would land – and I’m the superhero! I’m supposed to look cool!’ 

Standing up, Tom added: ‘I would stand up like this and my feet would swing beneath me and then she would catch me like this!’, which is when the smitten pair documented it for all to revel in.  

Funny: The actor insisted: 'It's so nice to be caught for a change!'

The actress-come-singer explained that her beau was actually quite fond of being caught: ‘You’re actually very lovely about it. You’re like, “Oh my god, thank you!”‘

Delighting the crowd with his humour, Tom insisted: ‘It’s so nice to be caught for a change!’

He admitted while starring in the movie was a huge part to get, he did have trouble with his costume and cheekily joked about the snug fit.  

He explained: ‘It doesn’t keep you warm at all and, it makes you look small in all the areas you don’t want to look small! It is the same as last time and once again I asked for a zip and there isn’t one!’   

Asked to explain the plot line, Tom added: ‘It’s tough to tell you much. Marvel and Sony have done such a good job of putting trailers together without giving anything away, but just enough to get everyone excited.

‘What’s cool about the film is that it picks up right after the end of the second one and for the first time in Peter Parker’s history his identity has been revealed to the world. Everyone thinks he is a crazy villain, and it all goes horribly wrong for him.’

Oh dear! And while starring in the movie was a huge part to get, he did have trouble with his costume and cheekily quipped about the snug fit (pictured in his suit)
