Holland was speaking to the press when he spotted his girlfriend, stating, ‘There she is, looking beautiful, might I add — as ever.’

When asked about the relationship, Holland said it started with ‘companionship,’ and led to more.

‘Two friends coming together, experiencing this world, going through the same problems at the same time, having a shoulder to cry on, has been a huge thing for the pair of us, and with Jacob (Batalon) as well. We really are a family,’ Holland said.

‘Becoming famous at the age of 19 … this is a different kind of fame. There’s not a corner of the world that Spider-Man hasn’t touched. It’s a lot to take in, so it’s really nice for me to have a family to share that with,’ Holland added.

Zendaya also spoke about their relationship, adding that they just support each other and are there for one another.

‘I think just sometimes you have to be a person to vent to, someone to just be there and listen,’ Zendaya added.

The actress added that she has been ‘lucky’ that her life hasn’t changed overnight, since she’s been acting since she was young, calling it a ‘slow progression.’

She added that she got to ‘figure it out as I go and get my footing a bit,’ though for Holland, it was, ‘so much all at once because you’re Spider-Man.’

‘You’re Spider-Man and your life changes. I have an extreme amount of empathy for that, so anything I learned, or have learned or continue to learn, I share with him, and anything he learns he shares with me,’ she added.
