Opening Up About Love

In November 2021, Holland opened up about their relationship to GQ, speaking about the pair's bond and alluding to the photos of the pair sharing a kiss inside a car over the summer.

"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," Holland told the outlet.

He added, "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. I don't think it's about not being ready. It's just that we didn't want to."

Keeping It Private

Zendaya echoed that sentiment, telling GQ, "The equal sentiment [we both share] is just that when you really love and care about somebody, some moments or things, you wish were your own. I think loving someone is a sacred thing and a special thing and something that you want to deal with and go through and experience and enjoy amongst the two people that love each other."

Holland added that the pair will have a discussion about revealing details of their relationship when the time is right: "This isn't my story. It's our story. And we'll talk about what it is when we're ready to talk about it together."
