Zendaya left high and dry! Tom Holland is pictured failing to help his girlfriend and fellow Spider-Man star as she struggles into a water taxi during a romantic trip to Venice
As Spider-Man, Tom Holland is the charming web-spinning hero who uses his powers to fight for those in need. But that gallantry, it seems, does not quite extend into real life.
The British actor was pictured in Venice last week, neglecting to help his girlfriend, the actress Zendaya, into a water taxi.
The couple, both 26, spent a few days in the Italian city, taking a romantic gondola ride and sightseeing.
But when they boarded the boat from a private pontoon at the five-star Gritti Palace hotel, Tom’s chivalry deserted him.
The star hopped easily on board, leaving Californian-born Zendaya to negotiate the transfer by herself.
And it proved tricky for the Euphoria actress in her tight maxi-dress, despite the high slit at the front.
The pair, who are thought to have been romantically involved for at least two years, met in 2016 when they were both cast in the Marvel reboot Spider-Man: Homecoming, with Zendaya playing love interest MJ.
They have denied claims they are engaged, but are said to have bought a £3 million, six-bedroom home in Richmond, South West London, together.
Both actors are rumoured to be reprising their roles for a new Spider-Man trilogy.
