Despite their public expressions of love on social media, the young couple has been cautious about each other in interviews.

In an interview with British magazine Total Film in November, Tom said he was “very happy and in love” without mentioning Zendaya by name.

“I might go and work as a carpenter for two years, then take a break and come back,” he told the publication.

“Or I might not come back. I might leave and get married and have kids, and then disappear for the rest of my life.

They both appeared on The Graham Norton Show last December, where they joked about their height difference, with Zendaya at 5-foot-10 being slightly taller than Tom at 5-foot-8.

Zendaya said on the show: “There was a particular stunt where Spider-Man waved us on the bridge and he put me there (before we finally jumped off), so he should have gently put MJ on the bridge Then walk away.’

“Because of our height difference, I would land before him (and) my foot was obviously on the ground before him,” she added.

Meanwhile, Tom said: “So Zendaya will land and I’m a superhero and I’m supposed to look cool. I’ll land and my feet will swing from under me and she’ll grab me.
