Tom Holland hasn’t been aggressively hitting on Marisa Tomei, despite a bogus new tabloid report claiming the actor wants to date his Spider-Man: Homecoming co-star. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this story.

An article in the latest issue of Star says the 21-year-old actor has a major crush on the 52-year-old actress, who plays his aunt in the superhero movie. A supposed “source” tells the magazine, “Tom is always asking Marisa out. He thinks she has a lot more to offer than girls his age.” The outlet’s dubious insider adds, “Tom wants a date with her and he’s told Marisa he’ll keep asking until she says yes. He’s very charming about it all of course, but he’s certainly a persistent guy.”

The tabloid’s “source” goes on to say Tomei “laughs off” Holland’s alleged advances and “reminds him that she’s old enough to be his mother,” but the actress is also “starting to worry that people will assume something has happened between them” because of all the attention he gives her. “She’s always been judgmental of men that date super young actresses and she’s stressing that people might start judging her, even though nothing has happened,” adds the seemingly phony insider, who further claims the actor “doesn’t seem to be giving up at all.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Holland, who dismissed the magazine’s report as “silly” before exclusively assuring us there’s no truth to it. The Spider-Man star has great admiration for the actress, and the two have great chemistry in the film, but he certainly isn’t pursuing her romantically.
