Zendaya admits she has a hard time understanding her boyfriend Tom Holland


Zendaya admits she has a hard time understanding her boyfriend Tom Holland. The star of "Ephoria" spoke about the difficulties in the relationship. 

26-year-old Zendaya and 28-year-old Tom Holland have been together for more than two years, and according to some insiders, all seven since they first met on the set of Spider-Man: Homecoming in 2016. It would seem that during this time it was possible to get used to any of each other's quirks. But, as Zendaya admitted, there is one thing that still confuses her. The fact is that Tom is British and in a conversation with his beloved, who grew up in California, he often uses cockney rhyming slang. This type of London vernacular is notable for the fact that it is not so easy to understand it. Cockney-speaking Brits do not just say some words backwards, but also combine several into one, giving them a new meaning and meaning.


I like the British accent, but no matter how hard Tom tries to explain it to me, I will never understand the rhyming slang. For example, what do apples and pears have to do with stairs? Of course, it's cute when he says different phrases to me, but I really don't understand anything! Zendaya complained in a conversation with The Sun. Recall that Zendaya and Tom Holland met on the set of Spider-Man: Homecoming back in 2016, when he was 20 and she was 19. Tom had the lead role, and Zendaya played Michelle Jones, Peter Parker's classmate . Then the first insider confirmation of the novel of young actors appeared. Some said that the romance began with friendship, others confirmed that Tom and Zendaya carefully hide their romantic relationship.

In November 2021, Holland confirmed his relationship with Zendaya. They made their red carpet debut as a couple the same month as the press tour for the second installment of the superhero reboot kicked off. After they at some point began to talk a little about each other in interviews.

In December 2022, information about the engagement of the actors appeared on social networks. However, none of them confirmed this rumor. Zendaya's mother turned to her daughter's fans with a request to beware of clickbait.
