Who knew you could find love on the set of Spider-Man: Homecoming?
The Marvel movie, which made over $117 million in its opening weekend, shows a wide range of diverse characters and relationships. Most notably, the friendship that ensued between Peter Parker (Tom Holland) and Michelle (Zendaya).
“They started seeing each other while they were filming Spider-Man,” a source from People says, “They’ve been super careful to keep it private and out of the public eye but they’ve gone on vacations with each other and try and spend as much time as possible with one another.” A different source who also confirms the two are seeing each other adds, “They’re both really ambitious and they challenge each other — but, most importantly, they make each other crack up. They seem to have a really similar sense of humor and love joking around together. They have great banter back and forth.”
Before it was confirmed that the two were dating, Holland revealed that he really enjoyed his friendship with Zendaya. “We are like the best of friends. She’s so great and amazing,” he says, “I’m a little worried [about dealing with fame … but] Zendaya is super famous and she’s been through this and I just call her up and say, ‘How do I manage being famous?’ I’m very glad I have a friend like her.”
Finding love on a Spider-Man movie sets seem to be a common occurrence. Kirsten Dunst and Tobey McGuire dated during the first Spider-Man reboot. Also Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield dated during The Amazing Spider-Man productions as well.
