"It was funny because, you know, obviously I've seen the movie many times so I know what's coming, and they were all sitting behind me, and I got to, like, watch them watch and slowly just be like, 'Oh god,'" she recalled.

Although Zendaya's latest movie isn't the most salacious thing she's done, it didn't make the moment any less uncomfortable. "It's still enough to not want to watch with your aunt," she pointed out.

"I love those movies, and I love savoring those moments, so I try not to watch them as often as I would maybe like to because it’s so special.

When asked if Zendaya had seen his new show The Crowded Room, he revealed, "She watched this series with me while we were editing it."

"I would send her episodes and asked her what she thought, so she definitely has seen it more times than I would have expected her to see it… When it aired, I was proud of the show… I didn’t watch it," said Holland, who has been dating the Shake It Up alum since 2021.
