On October 12, the Hollywood goddess opened up to InStyle about life behind closed doors. And by life behind closed doors, we obviously mean Z's relationship with Tom Holland. Safe to say, she might not be the biggest fan of PDA, but she certainly didn't hold back this time around...

In fact, there are many things Zendaya loves about her man. "In an actor way, I appreciate that he really loves being Spider-Man," she confessed. "It's a lot of pressure — you take on the role of a superhero wherever you go. To the little kid who walks by, you are Spider-Man. I think he handled that so well.

"We were shooting in New York, and... it's difficult for Tom, who has to be in the full Spidey suit; it's not like he can be incognito," she explained to InStyle. "I'm assuming someone was looking through the window, trying to scare us." While perhaps we'll never know what truly went down that iconic day, we do know this: Zendaya and Tom are in it for the long haul, and we can't wait to see what comes next.

Stay tuned.
