Lol they're funny because it's true 🫠

Tom — who's been linked to Zendaya since 2021 — previously told Buzzfeed Celeb how the characters they played in the Spider-Man movies helped bring them together in real life. "Definitely helps when the characters you're playing are falling in love with one another," Tom spilled.

"That's kind of where my rizz is at — and you know, I'm locked up, so I'm happy and in love so I've got no need for rizz," Tom said.

Tom didn't address the negative reactions to his post, but we'll see if he does. In the meantime, happy Virgo season, everyone ✨ — and happy birthday, Zendaya!
