Tom Holland and Zendaya revealed one of the challenges of the relationship - their height difference.

The Spider-Man co-stars were guests at The Graham Norton Show this week and they got candid about how their height difference made filming stunts both funny and challenging.

Standing at around 5 foot 8, Tom always had a little bit of insecurity about his height. In an interview with GQ, he revealed that he actually has a trick to look taller.

"I'd do this thing on red carpets where I would stand closer to the photographers than the people behind me [to look taller]," he said. "I cannot do anything about my height. I can put on more muscle."

His height didn't stop him, however, from succeeding in his career and, of course, wooing Zendaya, who is a couple of inches taller than him.

Stunts Can Get Awkward

The cute couple chatted with Graham Norton and told an amusing story of how they had challenges in filming their stunts because Zendaya was taller.

"Because of our height difference, if we're on the same point -- we were attached -- I would land before him. My feet obviously hit the ground before he does," Zendaya said.

"And I'm the superhero. I'm supposed to look cool," Tom added. "And she would land... and my feet would swing from underneath me and then she would catch me."

Confirming Their Relationship

While there have long been rumors of a romance between the co-stars, it wasn't until July of this year that their relationship was confirmed.

Paparazzi caught the lovers kissing in their car and photos quickly went viral.

Tom wasn't too happy about being outed by the paps. “We sort of felt robbed of our privacy,” he said in an interview.

“One of the downsides of our fame is that privacy isn’t really in our control anymore, and a moment that you think is between two people that love each other very much is now a moment that is shared with the entire world.”

Despite their height difference and privacy challenges, the Tomdaya ship is going strong.

While they try to keep their relationship low-key, they can't help but gush about each other in interviews.

“She is so good at being the role model for young guys and girls," Tom said. “Having her in my life was so instrumental to my sanity."

Spider-Man: No Way Home will be in theaters on December 17. See the latest trailer below:
