Because, yeah, that makes a lot of sense, and why would they do that?

As the host, Jessica Shaw began asking the couple about the visual height difference between them during their on-screen kiss Spider-Man: Far From HomeNot much taller. Let’s put this out there. Maybe like an inch or two at best. Not like, people say, ‘How did you guys kiss?’ It must have been very difficult. “”

After Jessica made it clear that she considered height restrictions on women and men as “misogynistic” and “problematic,” Zendaya and Tom agreed – her latter calling it a “stupid assumption” that it would even be a problem. “This is also normal,” Zendaya added. “My mom is taller than my dad. My mom is taller than everyone else.”

“It is not unusual for women to be tall,” Jacob added.

“I remember when we used to do Spider Man Screen tests…but every girl we tested for both roles was taller than me,” Holland shared after saying that height stereotypes were “ridiculous.” I wonder if this was a decision [director] john [Watts] I made. There was no one who tested shorter than me.”

“To be fair, I’m pretty short,” he continued. “So this was probably a decision John Watts made and something he was very familiar with and wanted to break the stereotype. I think it’s cool.”

Zendaya added that MJ and Peter’s kiss is a “nice sweet moment between them” and shared how unnecessary it was to try to “cheat” the on-screen height difference. “A lot of times, I’ve had to cheat and pretend… why not let it be?”

“Put me on an apple box,” Tom joked.

“It’s annoying that it has to be a conversation,” Jacob added. “Like that can’t be normal.” Zendaya also said that she “honestly never thought of it as a thing because my parents had always been that way, so I didn’t know people cared.”

I, am currently writing this post and realize how nothing it is and just a heterogeneous community building.

Now that the two of them are talking more seriously about the weird combinations placed on tall women and short men in relationships, let’s move on to more important things, okay?!
