While there are instances when celebrities often get public by subtly hinting at their relationship status, it is just not the case with our Marvel couple. Speaking with Elle, the actress further addressed the downside of being a celebrity, especially when it comes to the overwhelming public attention she always garners.
Talking about getting extreme attention, especially on her relationship with the Spider-Man: No Way Home actor, she mentioned,
“Parts of my life, I accept, are going to be public. I can’t not be a person and live my life and love the person I love. But also, I do have control over what I choose to share. It’s about protecting the peace and letting things be your own but also not being afraid to exist. You can’t hide. That’s not fun, either. I am navigating it more than ever now.”
While they still prefer to keep their relationship low-key, the pair are now more open to showing affection to one another in public. They have often addressed their relationship in public appearances meanwhile sharing some sweet moments via social media.
