Tom Holland is the face of the covers of April 2021 issue of British GQ magazine. The ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ and ‘Cherry’ star, speaking to the magazine, gave some insights into his busy schedule of movies.
Tom Holland has had an action-packed year. Despite the ongoing pandemic’s effect on the making and release of movies, Tom Holland gave three major movies – ‘Chaos Walking,’ ‘Cherry’ and ‘Devil All The Time’. He also recently wrapped the much-anticipated ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’.
The 24-year-old actor detailed his experience while shooting his Russo Brothers directorial ‘Cherry,’ but did not fail to mention his upcoming movie ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home.’ He shared some fun stories from the set of the Sony and Marvel movie like “crying on command” and a special arrangement between him and his director John Watts.
Apparently, the director is a fan of calling “one more take,” but according to the actor he often takes more than just one when he makes that call. He also joked about how this habit of Watts’ drives him nuts but would also make him “rich.”
“I have this thing with Jon Watts, whose the director of Spider-Man, I love him to bits, I absolutely love him. I’d do anything for him. But the one thing he does that drives me mental is he always says, ‘One more.’ But he never does one more. He’ll do like 10 more. So, now we have a jar. And every time he says one more and he does more than one more, he’s got to put five bucks in the jar. And let me tell you, I’m going to be rich. “
Talking about the recently retitled Spider-Man 3, he explained how his brother landed a gig in the movie and also shared details about at least one emotional scene that will be on the way in the third installation of the movie.
Tom also shared how speaking to Spider-Man co-star Zendaya has helped him navigate through the ups and downs of Hollywood. “Talking to Zendaya’s helped me a lot, actually. I used to come across sometimes as a bit of a d–k to fans, mainly as I was always so surprised that they’d want a picture with me or signature or whatever. I’d have the typical Londoner reaction, one of instant suspicion: ‘Why are you talking to me?’ Zendaya spotted this and quickly told me that this sort of reaction was going to be more aggro than just smiling and taking the picture. She totally changed the way I am able to be more comfortable in public.”
Tom also went on to discuss his role as Peter Parker aka Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He admitted since filming his third and probably last Spiderman film, he has now fulfilled his contract and has yet to be given another one.
Tom Holland seems as hopeful as we are not to say goodbye to our webbed Superhero anytime soon. “I hope not, but I don’t have another contract – yet. As I was cast as Spider-Man six years ago, I have always had the contract there as a safety net. I would never need to worry as, next year, I always had another Spider-Man film – but not any more. I’m just looking at my phone waiting for it to ring with a new contract.”
Spider-Man: No Way Home is due Christmas, this year.
