With the release of his latest film, Cherry, fans are doing their best to figure out whether Tom Holland is single or presently dating.
According to the rumor mill, the Spider-Man actor has been linked in the past to star Zendaya and digital producer Olivia Bolton, but does Tom Holland have a girlfriend today? Keep reading for everything we know about the rather private 24-year-old British star.
Does Tom Holland have a girlfriend?
Tom has been careful not to confirm or deny dating the latest person he's been linked to: actress Nadia Parkes. The rumors started back in the summer of 2020 when Tom posted a few photos of his time hanging out with her on Instagram, where he has more than 4 million followers. Nadia did the same on her account, posting a photo of Tom on a golf course with the caption, "If you can’t beat em, join em."
Altogether, those couple of Instagram cross-posts were all the evidence the internet needed to conclude that Tom and Nadia were indeed a pair.
While Nadia has since disabled comments on the post, Elle reported that Tom had initially commented twice on the golf shot. "Fairway to heaven," he wrote first, along with a heart-eyed emoji. Later, he added, "Tiger don't be mad. I always wear red on a Sunday."
Around the same time, The Daily Mail clarified that Nadia and Tom were spending their Covid-19 isolation period together. "It was early days for Tom and Nadia when the lockdown was announced," writes the source. "They made the decision to isolate together, and things have been going great between them. Tom has told friends and family they're in an official relationship and living together so soon into their romance has only made them stronger."
Who is Nadia Parkes?
Nadia is a close friend of Sophie Turner's who works as a London-based actress and has appeared in dramas like The Spanish Princess and Doctor Who.
While the British actress has an Instagram presence, you'll be pressed to find any more pictures of her and Tom Holland (believe us, we've tried!). Instead, she mainly posts selfies, pictures with friends, and behind-the-scenes photos that let her 122,000 followers into what it's like on the set of The Spanish Princess.
Tom, too, is very self-aware about his Instagram presence and the conclusions fans would draw about his relationship status. He told Esquire earlier in 2021 that his massive fanbase was a big reason he's so guarded about his love life online.
"If you were to break up with that person, people will have their own opinions as to why you broke up or whose fault it was," he said. "And me being a famous person and having people that love me around the world, if I were to break up with a poor girl, they might think it was her fault. And I wouldn't want that pressure to be on someone because of me."
So, for the curious, the snaps he posted of Nadia weren't at all as spontaneous as they might have seemed at the time. "I spoke to her about it, and that was something that she felt comfortable with me posting," he told Esquire. "But I am very, very selective with what I post."
