In a new Buzzfeed interview, the 27-year-old was asked which of her Dune: Part Two co-stars had the best rizz.

Despite the focus on her co-stars, Zendaya couldn't help but think of her boyfriend.

"I think someone who has beautiful charisma, not on the Dune cast, but personally works for me, is Mr. Tom Holland," she said in the preview clip, which dropped on Wednesday.

The Emmy winner added that Tom is "great at just talking to people," something that she doesn't feel quite as confident about herself.

"I've definitely had to pull it out of me a little bit," she added. He's got that natural gift."

Rizz – a slang term short for charisma – actually has Tom to thank for its popularity.

In another interview with Buzzfeed, the Uncharted actor famously claimed that he had no rizz and insisted that he played the "long game" to win Zendaya's heart while working on the Spider-Man movies together.

Though Zendaya neglected to award her Dune co-stars any rizz themselves, one of them has already backed her up, as Timothée Chalamet branded Tom the "rizz master" in another past interview.

"Tom is the ultimate rizz master," Timothée said. "The internet knows this. Zendaya knows this. Everyone knows this."

Though Tom may not see it himself, his long-lasting romance with the Euphoria actor has certainly proved it.

The couple, who first went public with their romance in 2021, were recently spotted holding hands as they left an afterparty for the Dune: Part Two premiere in London.
