“I love romance, and you know, I look back at the times I was in love, and they’re the happiest of my life,” he told Access in February 2021. “And, you know, I’m in no rush – I am 24. But then again, if it happens, it happens.”
So, what’s the tea? Is Tom single? He’s been in rumored relationships with both Nadia Parkes and Olivia Bolton in the past. Currently, he and Zendaya are living their best life together. Romance rumors between Tom and his Spider-Man costar were swirling for years, but both Tom and Zendaya insisted that they were nothing more than friends.
“We are friends,” Zendaya told Variety in August 2017. “He’s a great dude. He’s literally one of my best friends. This past how many months we’ve had to do press tours together. There’s very few people that will understand what that’s like at 20 years old.”
Tom, for his part, told Elle in June 2019 that he’s not dating the former Disney star, noting that he’s “definitely a relationship person.” He added, “I’m not the fleeting type at all; it’s not my way of life.”
Despite their past denials, Tom and Zendaya have taken their love public.
“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 GQ of their relationship in November 2021. “I’ve always been really adamant to keep my private life private, because I share so much of my life with the world anyway. We sort of felt robbed of our privacy.”
When chatting with Esquire months prior, in February 2021, the actor explained why he keeps his love life out of the public eye.
“If you were to break up with that person, people will have their own opinions as to why you broke up or whose fault it was,” the actor said. “And me being a famous person and having people that love me around the world, if I were to break up with a poor girl, they might think it was her fault. And I wouldn’t want that pressure to be on someone because of me.”
