Star actor Tom Holland had a simple but warm message for his fellow star and friend, Zendaya, in a recent Instagram post where he heartily celebrated her 25th birthday.


Tom Holland's birthday message to Zendaya was extremely sweet. He referenced their roles on Marvel's "Spiderman" franchise while wishing the star actress happy birthday as she turns 25.

The "Spiderman: Far From Home" actor shared a picture from one of their days on the set of the Marvel-produced movie. The mirror selfie showed the two cozying up to each other.

An insider had relayed that Holland and Zendaya's relationship started with a friendship, and they later became really close.

Holland and the birthday girl took the photo inside the dressing room. While Holland was still in his spiderman gear with specs of FX makeup on his face, Zendaya also dressed in ger costume.

The "Euphoria" actress took the photo with a tiny camera while Holland presented a smirk. The "Spiderman: Homecoming" actor addressed her in his witty caption that read:

"My MJ. Have the happiest of birthdays. Gimme a call when your up xxx."



For a while now, Zendaya and her co-star have raised eyebrows over the actual state of their friendship. Fans have wanted to know if they are good friends or more to the magic between them.

Back in 2016, the "Shake It Up" star and "Cherry" actor became colleagues on the set of "Spiderman: Homecoming." They built a relationship and grew closer in the years that followed.

However, sources have shared that there is more to their friendship and that the duo is romantically involved. Albeit, on several occasions, the co-stars have given reasons for the speculations to continue.


An insider had relayed that Holland and Zendaya's relationship started with a friendship, and they later became really close. With time the pair became an item, and the time it all started is said to be 2017.


While sources have shared that fans should not expect the Hollywood stars to go official in the public eye, the pair have been spotted in suggestive positions in the past.

They also attended a wedding ceremony and appeared to be cozy—the duo posed for several pictures enjoying the evening in each other's arms and sharing warm smiles.

Last month, there was an uproar on social media after Zendaya and Holland were photographed kissing in a car. The pair have not issued a statement about the kiss yet, leaving fans to decipher the nature of their relationship on their own.

Despite the rumors on the couple's relationship, it seems it has been on and off. This is so because the two have been linked with other people since 2017. While Zendaya dated Jacob Elordi, Holland was said to have dated Olivia Bolton.
