Tom Holland and Zendaya have joked about the difficulties their height difference makes while filming stunts. You can see them talking about here:
The couple, who appear together in Spider-Man: No Way Home, were on The Graham Norton Show last night where they spoke about the problems they faced during filming.
Graham said: “I heard you talking somewhere Zendaya about how your height difference makes those stunts more complicated.”
After which Tom cut in to say: Thank you, Graham.”
Explaining the difficulties, Zendaya said: "There's a particular stunt where Spider-Man swings us on top of a bridge, and he places me there.
"He's supposed to gently rest MJ on the bridge and walk away from her. Because of our height difference... if we’re, like, on the same point… we were attached, I would land before him.
“My feet obviously hit the ground before he does."
She then turned to Tom and asked: “So, what would happen?”, prompting him to explain something called a ‘bottom mark’ that is used while filming stunts.
He said: “It’s called a bottom mark, and the bottom mark is basically a thing that they do in stunts that is designed to stop you shattering your kneecaps.
“So Zendaya would land… I’m the superhero, I’m supposed to look cool. She would land, and then I would sort of land like this and my feet would swing from underneath me and she would catch me.”
As Tom spoke, he and Zendaya did a quick run through of how that would look, with Zendaya hoisting up one of Tom’s legs while the audience all p***ed themselves laughing.
Zendaya joked that Holland was ‘very lovely’ about it.
She said: “You were like, 'Oh my gosh, thank you’.”
With Tom replying: "It's so nice to be caught for a change.”
Tom has previously revealed that he used to be self-conscious about his height and would try to hide it.
Speaking to GQ he said: "I'd do this thing on red carpets where I would stand closer to the photographers than the people behind me.”
But he went on to say he’s accepted it now and found confidence in controlling things he can.
He told the publication: "I cannot do anything about my height. I can put on more muscle."
