Zendaya says she works hard to 'protect' the privacy of her relationship with Tom Holland

There are some celebrities who like to spill their guts about every sordid detail in their life.
The two have been dating for a few years after meeting on the set of Spider-Man and they have kept things pretty low key ever since.
While there have been a few mentions during interviews, the duo clearly likes to remaine private from the prying media.
Zendaya says that has been a conscious decision.
During an interview with Elle magazine, the Euphoria star opened up about how there is an intense focus on her life and relationship with her British boyfriend.
She recalled how there were photographers watching her walk her dog in Venice recently and she hated the idea of them snapping pictures of her picking up poo.
When she was asked whether photos her her and Tom holidaying in the Italian city were nice because it meant that fans cared about them, she became candid.
“Parts of my life, I accept, are going to be public,” she explained.
“I can’t not be a person and live my life and love the person I love.
"But also, I do have control over what I choose to share.
"It’s about protecting the peace and letting things be your own but also not being afraid to exist. You can’t hide. That’s not fun, either. I am navigating it more than ever now.”
It must be difficult trying to live in your world and go through normal things while there's a dozen or so photographers asking you every question under the sun.
Add in the throng of fans that might flock over to you at any given moment and it's easy to see how celebrities get overwhelmed being in public.
But at least they have chosen to keep some things to themselves.
Tom recently opened up about how Zendaya was his childhood crush when he was growing up.
In an interview with BuzzFeed, the actor was asked how he would rate his rizz.
For the uninitiated, rizz is your charisma and charm, and it's used to pick up a potential partner.
“I have no rizz whatsoever. I have limited rizz,” he told the outlet.
“I need you to fall in love with me, really, for it to work.
"So, long game. Probably making a movie with each other.
"Definitely helps when the characters you’re playing are falling in love with one another—you can sort of blur the lines a little bit.
"That’s kind of where my rizz is at.
"And I’m, you know, I’m locked up, so I’m happy and in love. So I’ve got no need for rizz.”
