Zendaya And Tom Holland Don’t Get The Fuss Over Their Heights: ‘This Is Normal, Too’

Zendaya and Tom Holland don’t get all the hype because of their height difference. The representative of “Euphoria” is taller than the Netherlands… so what?

The “Spider-Man: No Way Home” stars spoke about the reservations surrounding their heights during their appearance on SiriusXM on Friday.

Host Jessica Shaw noted that their height difference “became that thing” with fans after a scene in 2019 titled “Spider-Man: Far From Home” where Spider-Man (Netherlands) and MJ (Zendaya) kissed him. But the actors seemed surprised that anyone would care.

Shaw then described it as a “misogynistic thing” where many people feel that women should be shorter than men in heterosexual relationships.

Zendaya replied, “That’s normal, too.” “My mom is taller than my dad.”

Holland, who first noted that Zendaya is about “an inch or two” taller than him, said it was a “stupid assumption” that a man should be taller than a woman in a relationship.

The pair was joined by “Spider-Man” actor Jacob Batalon, who said, “It’s not unusual for a woman to be tall.”

Zendaya later indicated that she had no idea until she was growing up that the height difference between a man and a woman “was something” that people cared about.

“My parents were always like this,” she said, before adding, “I have no idea about it.”

Zendaya and Holland are clearly unfazed by their heights – even if some fans are. They even joked recently about the effect their height difference had on their ability to do a particular trick in “Spider-Man: No Way Home.”

During an appearance on “The Graham Norton Show” last week, Holland explained that the trick involves landing on a roof with Zendaya glued to it, but Zendaya will land on the ground in front of him, causing his feet to swing from under him.

“And then he stuck me,” he joked, joking that things didn’t go as planned and that he “should look great” when first landing.

Holland also recently took up their long-rumored marital romance, discussing their off-screen relationship in a cover story for GQ’s Men of the Year issue last month.

He said photos released by paparazzi over the summer that showed them kissing at a traffic light in Los Angeles “robbed” them of their privacy.
