Wholesome kings Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal have taken their show on the road and across the world for the Spider-Man: Far From Home press tour. With each stop, their “love” for each other grows and their compliments become even more intense. As co-star Zendaya says, “When they’re together, you’re not gonna get anything in there. It’s only them.” So who loves the other more? Does Tom’s admiration for Jake’s work win out over Jake’s appreciation for Tom’s kind soul? And does the fact that Tom cannot spell “Gyllenhaal” affect his score? Don’t call it a bromance — it’s a classic press-tour love story. They literally (and probably contractually) can’t shut up about each other.
