KEY POINTS

  • Zendaya said she and her "Spider-Man 3" co-stars were "all so close" after working together on the movie
  • She described her "Space Jam: A New Legacy" character Lola Bunny as "cool" and said she "deserved" her new makeover
  • Zendaya got a call from producer Ryan Coogler to join the "Space Jam" sequel and voice the character

Zendaya has a lot of projects coming up and is already excited for fans to see them.

The 24-year-old actress recently sat down for an interview with Entertainment Tonight's Kevin Frazier while promoting "Space Jam: A New Legacy," where she stars alongside NBA superstar LeBron James, Don Cheadle and Sonequa Martin-Green.

Zendaya, who was recently photographed kissing Tom Holland, spoke about her bond with her "Spider-Man: No Way Home" co-stars and said she was looking forward to the fans' reaction to the upcoming Marvel movie.

"I can't wait for everybody to see 'Spider-Man' when it does come out," Zendaya told ET. "And you know, we all work so hard and we're all so close from that. I'm excited! We're gonna have a good press tour I think."

The "Euphoria" star did not address the romance speculation surrounding her and Holland's relationship. Instead, she talked about her character in the "Space Jam" sequel, where she voices Lola Bunny.

"I think she's a cool character," Zendaya said, adding that Lola "deserved" her new makeover from the 1996 original movie starring Michael Jordan.

Zendaya went on to say that it was "cool" to be part of the movie and spoke about the call she got from producer Ryan Coogler to join the project.

"He was like, 'We're doing this new version of Space Jam and we're doing it with LeBron and we'd love for you to be our Lola. Kind of re-imagine what the character represents, this new chapter of this film and who she is, and we'd love for you to be a part of it,'" Zendaya recalled.

"And obviously I was honored to say the least. I kind of grew up with the film because both of my parents are basketball players...I think I was born the year it came out. I think I was a couple months old."

When asked who would win a match between James and Spider-Man, the Emmy winner refused to choose one.

"I'm not gonna get involved with that," she said. "LeBron, he's kinda a superhero on his own. I don't know how he does what he does, but he's a superhero in real life. Listen, Spider-Man is Spider-Man but LeBron is LeBron."

The interview came days after Zendaya and Holland spent the Fourth of July weekend together. The "Spider-Man" co-stars had dinner at a "nice, casual restaurant in Santa Barbara," California on July 4, Entertainment Tonight previously reported, citing an unnamed eyewitness.

"The following day, on July 5, Zendaya and Tom played mini golf at the hotel. Zendaya took some cute photos of Tom and they were laughing, hugging and hanging out. They also ate lunch at the hotel together and lounged by the pool," the source told the outlet.

Romance rumors have been swirling around Zendaya and Holland since their "Spider-Man" press tour in 2017. But despite being photographed kissing last week, they have yet to confirm if they're dating.
