Sometimes I feel like I have a midlife crisis on the daily. Everything seems more dramatic and intense than the day before. Maybe it’s the pandemic, maybe it’s aging. But I always feel like I never know what I want, always want to do more, and always want to be more.
Turns out that I am not alone. And if you are feeling as though you are having a constant mid life crisis, you are also not alone. Tom Holland, who has been doing press for Spider-Man: No Way Home, thinks that he may be having a premature midlife crisis.
Not that I condone reading The Guardian (but like don’t judge me, cause I had to read about Tom), but Tom spoke to them and said basically that he thinks that he may be having a small premature mid-life crisis over career choice.
“I don’t even know if I want to be an actor,” he said. “I started acting when I was 11 and I haven’t done anything else, so I’d like to go and do other things.”
Tom did start acting when he was 11 on stage when he played the title role in the musical Billy Elliott on London’s West End. He did go on to tell The Guardian, “I haven’t done anything else, so I’d like to go and do other things. Genuinely, I’m sort of … having a midlife crisis – at 25, I’m having like a pre-midlife crisis.”
Look, travel, take classes, do a documentary series about you trying things. We get it Tom. But your midlife crisis always needs to lead back to more acting, because we don’t know what a world without you in movies would be like.
