‘Spider-Man’ Star Slams Hollywood: ‘You’ll Never See Me at an Award Show – I Really Do Not Like Hollywood’

“Spider-Man: No Way Home” star Tom Holland has slammed the entertainment industry elite while expressing his distaste for Hollywood.

During an interview on the “Jay Shetty Podcast,” Holland revealed that he has quit drinking before slamming Hollywood.

He said: “I really am a massive fan of making movies, but I really do not like Hollywood.

“It is not for me,” he added.

“The business really scares me.

“I understand that I’m a part of that business and I enjoy my kind of interactions with it, 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.

“I definitely think it has been an ongoing thought, which is ‘don’t lose yourself.’

“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.

“And I just am really, really keen to focus on what makes me happy which is my family, my friends, my carpentry, my golf, the charity my mom runs, that is the stuff that makes me really happy and that is the stuff I should protect.

“My relationship (with “Spider-Man” co-star Zendaya) is the thing I keep most sacred, I don’t talk about it.

“I try my best to keep it as private as possible.

“We both feel very strongly that that is the healthiest way for us to move on as a couple.

“Like, you’ll never see me at an award show that I don’t have to be at.

“I’m never going to a red-carpet event that I’m not in the film of.

“I don’t want the attention when I don’t need it.”

He said he quit drinking after trying out “dry January.”

“All I could think about was having a drink.

“All I could think about.

“I would wake up thinking about it.

“I was checking the clock, when’s it 12, and it just really scared me.

“I was just like, ‘Wow, maybe I have a little bit of an alcohol thing.’

“I was definitely addicted to alcohol.

“Things that would go wrong on set that would normally set me off, I could take in my stride.

“I had such better mental clarity. I felt healthier.

“I felt fitter and I just sort of said to myself, ‘Why am I enslaved to this drink? Why am I so obsessed by the idea of having this drink?’

“It’s honestly been the best thing I’ve ever done.”
