AceShowbiz - Tom Holland remains committed to protecting his mental health after announcing a sabbatical from social media. The British thesp didn't break his silence on Instagram on his girlfriend Zendaya Coleman's birthday.
Zendaya turned 26 years old on Thursday, September 1. While the young lovebirds used to post sweet birthday shout-outs on each other's special day, Tom didn't make the same romantic gesture on his social media page this year.
It's not a complete surprise though, as Tom announced in August that he's taking a break from social media to protect his mental health. The 26-year-old actor, who boasts seven million followers on Twitter and almost ten times that on Instagram, found his massive online presence "overwhelming."
"I have taken a break from social media for my mental health, because I find Instagram and Twitter to be overstimulating, to be overwhelming," he said in a video posted on August 14. "I get caught up and I spiral when I read things about me online, and ultimately, it's very detrimental to my mental state, so I decided to take a step back and delete the app."
He hasn't updated his social media page since then.
Meanwhile, Zendaya received so many birthday wishes on Twitter from fans around the world. "@Zendaya Happy Happy Birthday. Love you 300000000....," one MCU fan tweeted, quoting a famous line from "Avengers: Endgame".
A second one joked, "Happy late birthday to the woman I would create a religion or cult to in her name @Zendaya I love you." Another wrote, "happy birthday my sweet zendaya i love you forever and always." A fourth user added, "Happy 26th trip around the sun to Emmy Award-winning actress, philanthropist, fashion icon and advocate for women's rights, anti-racism and anti-colourism @Zendaya."
Tom and Zendaya were last seen together in Budapest, during which he reportedly took a commercial flight to visit her while she was filming "Dune: Part Two". The pair were seen enjoying a fun scooter ride in late August in the Hungarian capital.
