Everyone Wants You To Stop Talking About The Height Difference Between Tom Holland And Zendaya

When news started to come out about Zendaya and Tom Holland becoming a couple, lots of people online started to point out the height difference between the two stars.

Zendaya is around two inches taller than Holland. Of course, Zendaya stands at around 5’10, so she’s pretty tall for a woman. According to the Google, Holland is around 5’8, which is perhaps an inch or two shorter than the average in America for a white man.

But people are making a big fuss about this because it’s not often you see a famous lady dating a shorter man in Hollywood. And considering Holland and Zendaya are two of the hottest stars right now, people are seeing a lot of them. They’re currently doing a press tour for the latest ‘Spider-Man‘ flick.

During one interview, a radio host pointed out that Zendaya is taller than Holland, to which Holland replied, “Not that much taller. Let’s put this out there. Maybe like an inch or two at best. It’s not like, people say like, ‘How did you guys kiss?'”

Zendaya then pointed out that her mother is actually taller than her father. So clearly, she doesn’t have any issues with dating a man who is shorter than her. For some reason, only the internet seems to be concerned with it.

And ‘The Good Place‘ actress Jameela Jamil says the ‘short king’ conversations need to stop. She went on her Instagram account to ask people why they even care about the height difference.

I remember boys who liked me not wanting to date me because they were afraid of being judged for being shorter than me. I didn’t care. But they were worried that others would. I’ve dated people of all different heights. Never crosses my mind. When women write ‘don’t talk to me unless you’re over 6ft’ you are just as bad as the men who write ‘slim girls only.’

Of course, she’s not wrong. It’s strange that we care so much. There are lots of things we care too much about.

At the end of the day, as long as your boo is treating you right, that’s all you should focus on. Do they make you laugh? Feel safe? Hold you when you cry? Watch sh*tty reality TV shows with you? That’s what really matters. Who is watching two hour episodes of 90 Day Fiance with you? Focus on that.
