You are probably here because you are one of those people who recently got so smitten by the real-life love team of Tom Holland and Zendaya. Now while the couple does look cute together, the evident difference in their height somewhat caught the public’s attention. However, now while some men are not as comfortable talking about their height, especially when they are smaller than 6 feet, it seems that Tom Holland cannot be any more different.
Now before we go to Tom Holland’s physical features that surely add to his attractiveness, let us first get to know a few things about our Spider-Man.
Thomas Stanley Holland was born on June 1, 1996 in south London. His parents are both in the creative industry with his mother being a photographer and his father being a comedian and author. Additionally, Holland sometimes credits his father as his unofficial manager.
When Tom was young, he found interest in dance but it became the subject of ridicule and bullying since it was not considered as a boy’s activity. He also became involved in stage plays when he was still a student.
The New Spider-Man
He started his on-screen acting in the movie The Impossible in 2012 but his career skyrocketed when he became the new Peter Parker/ Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2015. He first played the role in Captain America: Civil War in 2015.
In 2017, he finally began starring in Spider-Man: Homecoming and the two sequels Spider-Man: Far From Home and Spider-Man: No Way Home in 2019 and 2021 respectively.
How tall is Tom Holland and what does Zendaya say about his height?
Ever since Tom Holland was able to secure the role of Spider-Man, many have been curious about what makes him attractive. Some say it can be his brown hair, his fair skin, his chiseled jaw, or maybe his height!
Speaking of his height, did you know that Tom Holland is just 5 feet and 8 inches or 173 cm tall? Yes, you read that right. He is below 6 feet so he basically does not fit the stereotypical ideal white guy character. Then again, his height did not become a hindrance for his booming acting career.
His love life also blossomed when he became Peter Parker because he is also dating Mary Jane in real life, co-star Zendaya. Now, Zendaya is actually a few inches taller than Tom, standing at 5 feet and 10 inches or 177.8 cm. Nevertheless, the couple has shut down any issues or allegations thrown at them about their height difference and mentioned that it really doesn’t bother them at all.
What is Tom Holland’s weight?
Now while Tom is said to be content with whatever height he is blessed with, his weight is actually a different story.
In 2021, Tom Holland crash dieted and ran almost every day wearing trash bags to speed up his weight loss process for a role that he wanted to land. During that time, he lost almost a quarter of his original weight. His trainer, however, said that he just lost water weight so it is not something that should concern his fans.
Today, Tom Holland weighs an estimated 65 kg or 143.3 lbs.
