Zendaya and Timothee Chalamet have been spending a lot of time together in anticipation of their new movie premiere. According to the duo, they’re amazing friends. But should Zendaya’s boyfriend, Tom Holland, be worried her on-screen chemistry with Timothee could turn into more?

The two actors have garnered a lot of attention for their new movie, Dune, which is a sci-fi tale based on a 1965 novel of the same name. And while fans can’t wait for the movie to drop, they are even more interested in the budding friendship between Zendaya and Timothee.

According to the actress, “Immediately, I was like, ‘We’re gonna be friends for life,'” she dished on Daily Pop. “That was great. I had an incredible time, and I sure hope we get to do more of it because, selfishly, I just wanna have fun,” Zendaya said.

The pair have been having a lot of fun since shooting the movie. Fans spotted the two actors shopping together in New York City at Bed Bath and Beyond. They have been gushing about each other in interviews and Timothee and Zendaya even celebrated the actress’ 25th birthday together when they were in Venice, Italy.

Timothee got to meet some of his co-star’s friends when they had a birthday dinner together. According to the actor, they were a great group of people.

On Zendaya’s birthday, her co-star took to Twitter and posted a sweet message to his new friend. Timothee said, “Happy birthday to one of the most inspiring people I’ve met on my short journey. Someone with the strongest ethical character and a moral compass that is in harmony with a totally fearless creative abandon. Happy birthday, @Zendaya. Hope your day is beautiful, friend.”

Then in December, the actress posted a sweet message to Timothee on his birthday. She included an artsy photo of the actor on her Instagram story and said, “It’s an honor to watch his talents at work but even more of an honor to be able to call him a friend,” the actress wrote. “Essentially he’s the s–t. Hope it’s a beautiful one.”

In the beginning, fans were curious about whether their friendship was something more. But the friends were quick to squash the dating rumors. Only problem? Tom Holland and Zendaya met on set, too. And we all kinda remember that.

Nevertheless, Tom has become a master Instagram boyfriend. Since his girlfriend started filming Dune, he has been posting a series of tributes to his social media feed.

During the Dune premiere in London, Tom Holland posted a gorgeous photo of Zendaya in a white floor length gown. He captioned the post with a heart-eyes emoji and the actress was quick to respond back with a pleading face emoji.

Then, for her birthday, Tom posted the cutest message to his girlfriend. He wrote, “My MJ, have the happiest of birthdays. Gimme a call when your up xxx.” A couple hours later, the actress commented on the post and said, “Calling now.”

Even with distance, this couple seems to make their relationship work. A couple months ago, Zendaya gushed about working with her boyfriend on the movie Spiderman: Far From Home and what some of his best qualities are.

While talking to InStyle magazine she said,  “In an actor way, I appreciate that he really loves being Spider-Man. 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.”

She later added that Tom “can make anybody feel comfortable and have a good laugh and a good chat. A good chat — I sound so British.”

Sounds like Spiderman and MJ are making it work!
