One thing that you have to love about Tom Holland is that he’s very open. Well, he’s open about things that have to do with his movies, but he’s definitely keeping his private life, private.
We can respect that. Hell, we admire that.
No one needs to hear about anyone else’s relationships. We’re fully aware that we say that, but also know that we do love drama. It’s just that there is something to admire about people not sharing every moment of their lives.
The actor is covering The Hollywood Reporter, talking all about his life, The Crowded Room, and much more.
On reviews and how they affect him: “There will be good ones. There will be. I try to have a healthy outlook on all that sort of stuff and respect everyone’s opinion.”
On taking it all in stride & his feelings on The Crowded Room: “The thing is, I love my job. I love my friends. I’m not worried about what people think. The only thing I really care about is how I feel. And right now, I feel really happy and excited for people to see this show.”
On focusing on his mental health: “I wouldn’t say I particularly have a history of issues with mental health. I just feel like I am a young person living in a world where we are expected to share every moment online. We are under the pressures of public opinion and other people’s opinions, and you’ve got these pressures of delivering to a certain standard. And it’s stressful. It’s hard.”
On living with the glare of the public eye & social media: “It’s tough when every time you leave your front door, you are working. You’re on camera. I can’t walk around New York without clicking everywhere I go. And social media was bringing that outside world into my house. I just had to get rid of it. I needed to get back to reality, remind myself of who I am and where I’m from, and just live my life as normally as possible, in my abnormal way. Which is my career, I guess.”
