A complete timeline of Tom Holland and Zendaya's relationship
  • Tom Holland and Zendaya star as Peter and MJ in Marvel's current "Spider-Man" franchise.
  • The two stars have spoken about their friendship over the years and initially denied romance rumors.

Tom Holland and Zendaya have come a long way since meeting several years ago.

The two stars first shared the screen together in Sony and Marvel's 2017 movie "Spider-Man: Homecoming," with Holland portraying the titular web-slinger and Zendaya starring as MJ. Over the years, they've spoken fondly about their friendship, while also dodging romance rumors.

Here's a complete timeline of their relationship.

Holland and Zendaya meet during her audition process for 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'

Holland had already been cast as Peter Parker/Spider-Man back in 2015, after doing multiple auditions around the world. He would go on to make his Marvel debut in "Captain America: Civil War," released in May 2016.

In March 2016, it was reported that Zendaya would join him in "Homecoming."

"My first meeting with Zendaya was very embarrassing, actually, for me," Holland recalled during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, explaining that it "wasn't my smoothest moment."

Zendaya recalled their chemistry read differently, telling Variety in 2017: "He says when we first met it was super awkward because he went for a handshake and I went for a hug. But I don't remember that. I thought it was cool."

The actress did say that she was "worried" because Holland is "so much shorter" than her, but the audition was done with the stars sitting down, so it went well.

Holland also told THR that he "didn't really know what to expect with Zendaya," but was relieved when he met her.

"I was so surprised and so happy she's one of the most professional, hardworking people I've ever met in my life," he said. "We were at the screen tests for 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' and we did the first scene together and I think the producers cast her like then. Before she even left the room, they knew that she was going to play her character."

The feelings were mutual, with Zendaya telling THR: "He's so nice, he's one of the nicest people I think I've ever met. He's a good dude and so it's really good to see good things going on for a good person."

Zendaya knocked out her performance of Bruno Mars' "24K Magic." But it was Holland's sensational, jaw-dropping mashup of Gene Kelly's "Singin' in the Rain" and Rihanna's "Umbrella" that stole the show.

"I just knew that at that point in my life, no one really knew who I was," Holland told Esquire. "And I was doing this show with Zendaya, who is obviously incredibly famous, and I was really nervous about being this random guy who everyone was like, 'Who is this person? Why are you on the stage?'"

He added: "So I just thought to myself like, I'm going to have to just do something incredibly bold, and if they watch it and don't know who I am, they'll still be entertained by it."

"I get more compliments on the lip sync battle than I do for any of my actual work, ever, to the point where now I'm over it," Holland said in his 2019 Wired autocomplete interview.

The actor later told Esquire that it was the most nerve-wracking thing he's ever done and he wouldn't do it again.

"It was amazing that I got to do it with Zendaya and yes, she did go there to have some fun and yes, I did go there to destroy," he said. "But oh my god, that was easily the most stressful thing I've ever done in my life."

Meanwhile, Zendaya told Entertainment Weekly that she and Holland are "very competitive with everything" because of their battle.

"I feel like now I have to beat him in everything else in life because that specific moment happened," she said.

The "Chaos Walking" star also said that it's "incredibly frustrating" when people speculate about his love life.

"It's very nerve-racking," he said. "It means that if you are dating someone, you have to be really conscious of their feelings, because if something does happen between the two of you, it's not just happening between the two of you, it's happening in front of the entire world. And it can be very complicated. It's one of the things I worry about most, of all the things in my career."

Zendaya also said that it was "cool to see how he cares so much about his work and making it right."

"I watched him do a fight scene all day, which is exhausting," she recalled. "He'd do a move, come back to the monitors, watch it, and say, 'I can do that better.' I'd be like, 'Dude, you got it.' But he wants us to be perfect, and I really appreciate that."
