TOM Holland is getting the last laugh on haters who think he’s too short to date Zendaya.
The Spider-Man star “liked” a post on Instagram that declares “According to science, short men have more sex.”
Alongside a picture of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito from their 1998 movie “Twins,” the LADbible caption explains: “According to The Journal of Sexual Medicine, shorter men are more sexually active than taller men – who would have thought ay?
“A study of 531 heterosexual men found ‘coital frequency was higher among men with a height of less than 175cm’ – which is just under 5’9.”
Tom is 5’8 while his co-star/rumored girlfriend is 5’10.
The height difference has been a continued target of internet trolls, even though the couple at the center could apparently care less.
At a Sirius XM Town Hall event promoting the blockbuster Spider-Man: No Way Home film, Tom said it was a “stupid assumption” that the height difference affects their relationship, while Zendaya pointed out how common their height difference is.
“This is normal, too,” Zendaya said. “My mom is taller than my dad. My mom’s taller than everyone.”
Zendaya, 35, and Tom, also 35, set the internet wild with dating rumors in 2017.
The couple – called Tomdaya by fans – has been a fan favorite since they first appeared alongside each other in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
An insider told People magazine at the time that “they started seeing each other while they were filming Spider-Man.”
“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.”
The source added: “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.”
The pair shut down the rumors, however, claimed that they were the “best of friends.”
CAUGHT IN A WEB
On July 1, 2021, The Sun then exclusively obtained photos of the pair kissing, reigniting the rumor mill that the pair are in fact dating.
The rumors then intensified in September after Tom uploaded a picture of the pair to Instagram for Zendaya’s birthday, captioning the snap: “My MJ, have the happiest of birthdays. Gimme a call when your (sic) up xxx”
In November, after Tom was named GQ’s Superhero of the Year, Zendaya was seen bragging about her rumored man saying he’s “incredible to watch,” while Spider-Man himself opened up about the struggles of a celerity relationship.
“One of the downsides of our fame is that privacy isn’t really in our control anymore, and a moment that you think is between two people that love each other very much is now a moment that is shared with the entire world,” Tom told the media outlet.
“I’ve always been really adamant to keep my private life private, because I share so much of my life with the world anyway,” he continued, adding “We sort of felt robbed of our privacy.”
Tom continued, saying that, “I don’t think it’s about not being ready [to talk about the relationship] It’s just that we didn’t want to.”
