‘I really do not like Hollywood’

Tom Holland does not have a favorable opinion of Hollywood.

The 27-year-old star of “Spider-Man: No Way Home” confessed that the entertainment industry is not his cup of tea, despite his deep love for filmmaking.

“Look, I’m a huge fan of making movies, but I really don’t like Hollywood. It’s just not for me,” said the British actor during an episode of Jay Shetty’s “On Purpose” podcast, which was released on Sunday.

“The business aspect really scares me. I know that I’m a part of it, and I enjoy my interactions with it,” Holland added.

However, he also mentioned that he constantly seeks ways to distance himself from the industry and live as normal a life as possible.

“Doing this podcast today is a rare thing for me,” he admitted, noting that Shetty’s platform provides a “safe space” for him to be vulnerable.

Holland expressed concern about some of his friends who have “lost themselves” in the entertainment industry, and he fears the same might happen to him.

“I have always thought about not losing myself,” Holland revealed. He has witnessed many people before him losing their identity and has experienced the loss of friends who have become consumed by the business.

“I am truly dedicated to focusing on what brings me happiness, which includes my family, friends, carpentry, golf, and the charity run by my mother,” he emphasized.

“That is what truly brings me joy, and that is what I must protect,” Holland concluded.

In addition, Holland opened up about his realization that he was “definitely addicted to alcohol” while attempting to go a month without drinking.

During “Dry January,” Holland experienced strong cravings for alcohol and couldn’t stop thinking about it. This made him realize that he may have a problem.

“I would wake up thinking about it. I would check the clock… And it really scared me,” he shared.

He decided to punish himself by extending the period of abstinence to two months: “I’ll do February as well. I’ll stay off for two months.”

However, Holland found it extremely challenging to stay away from alcohol for that long and began to worry that he might have an alcohol problem.

Tom Holland isn’t fond of Hollywood.

The “Spider-Man: No Way Home” star, 27, admitted that the entertainment industry is “not for him” despite his undying love for filmmaking.

“Look, I really am a massive fan of making movies but I really do not like Hollywood, it is not for me,” the British actor said on Jay Shetty’s “On Purpose” podcast released Sunday.

“The business really scares me. I understand that I’m a part of that business, and I enjoy my kind of interactions with it.”

Holland continued, “But that said, I am always looking for ways to kind of remove myself from it, to kind of just live as normal a life as possible.”

“Today, doing this [podcast] is a very rare thing for me to do,” he added, noting that Shetty’s platform felt like a “safe space” for him to be vulnerable.

“I definitely think it has been an ongoing thought, which is don’t lose yourself,” said Holland, who is dating “Euphoria” star Zendaya.

“I’ve seen so many people come before me and lose themselves, and I’ve had friends that I’ve grown up with that aren’t friends of mine anymore, because they’ve lost themselves to this business.”

“I just am really, really keen to focus on what makes me happy, which is my family, it’s my friends. It’s my carpentry, my golf, the charity that my mom runs,” he went on.

“Like, that is the stuff that makes me really happy, and that’s the stuff that I should protect.”

Holland also detailed how he realized he was “definitely addicted to alcohol” when trying to commit to a month of no drinking.

After trying out “Dry January” and feeling the urge to drink, Holland — who recently announced he was taking a break from acting — realized “all I could think about was having a drink.”

“I was waking up thinking about it. I was checking the clock … And it just really scared me,” he explained.

“Maybe I have a little bit of an alcohol thing. So I sort of decided to punish myself and say, I’ll do February as well. I’ll do two months off.”

Holland said he was “really struggling” after going dry for two months, which led him to fear that he may have “an alcohol problem.”
