One of Hollywood’s favorite couples, the pair met in 2016 when they both starred in Marvel’s ‘Spider-Man’. Eventually, rumors that they were dating were confirmed in 2021 when they were spotted kissing in traffic.

In conversation with The Sun, Z, as she is affectionately known, has candidly said she doesn’t understand her boyfriend’s South London lingo. “I love the British accent, but even if Tom tries to explain it to me, I’ll never understand rhyming slang,” the American-born actress explained.

She continued: “As I understand the concept – but what do apples and pears have to do with stairs? It’s cute when he tells me all the different phrases – but I don’t understand!

Although she doesn’t understand the accent, the Emmy-winning actress explores the beautiful city of London. Last month, Hollywood’s favorite duo were spotted holding hands in the Waitrose supermarket in south-west London. In addition, they visited historical sites and landscapes of the city. They also went on tour to Hampton’s Court Palace, where King Henry VIII lived.

Speaking about her life with the ‘Avengers: Endgame’ actor in London, Zendaya said, “He’s perfect in the kitchen, which is lucky because I’m accident-prone.”

She added: “We learned early on that only one of us could be in the kitchen at a time; we’re both control freaks, so we can’t be in this together.

Zendaya’s candid admission about not understanding her boyfriend’s slang comes two months after rumors of their engagement made the rounds. As reported by The BlastStories of the “Spider-Man: Far From Home” co-actors taking their relationship to the next level began after Zendaya uploaded a photo of herself wearing a giant ring.

In the snap that the 26-year-old actress uploaded, she slipped into sleepwear, apparently getting ready for bed. She posed in front of a mirror and captured her upper body. However, the spotlight was on a diamond ring on her left finger. This prompted several netizens to speculate about a possible engagement between Zendaya and Holland.

One Twitter user shared her opinion, writing, “Zendaya took all the jewelry off her look tonight EXCEPT a diamond ring on her left ring finger.” Another user wrote, Zendaya removed all jewelry from her look tonight EXCEPT a diamond ring on her left ring finger.

The ‘Dune’ actress may need to master the slang because it looks like she’ll be spending a hefty amount of money in London. Last year, reports surfaced that the lovers plan to make their love permanent.

A source close to the couple revealed their intentions to take their affair to the next level. The source said: “They are both settling down and planning a real future together.” The source further pointed out that the couple’s love for each other is “serious and abiding.”

Perhaps the couple could let fans know about their future union as they wisely kept their affair out of the media. However, they have adored each other in interviews.

He said: “One of the downsides of our fame is that privacy is not really in our control anymore, and a moment that you think is between two people who love each other very much is now a shared moment with the world. entire. … We kind of felt robbed of our privacy.
