Noah Schnapp and Zendaya
Stranger things have happened! The Netflix star has taken a shining to Spider-Man: Far From Home’s Zendaya. In July 2019, he bluntly told Wired magazine, “I like Zendaya.” This wasn’t his first public admission either. He shouted her out from the podium during his acceptance speech at the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards when he won for Most Frightened Performance. “Hi, Zendaya!” he beamed in June 2018.
The actor finally met Zendaya for the first time at the 2019 People’s Choice Awards in October 2019. “I just … I remember seeing her in the corner of my eye and walking up to her,” he recalled on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in March 2020. “And I was really, really nervous and I was like, ‘Oh, my God. It’s actually her. This is the first time I’m meeting her.’ And she smelled great. And she was so … she was so cute and she was, like, towered over me and she, like, bent down and she was like, ‘Hi, Noah,’ with her little squeaky voice. Yeah, I remember everything.”Back to top
