Tom Holland: I may be Spider-Man, but mum still makes me do the dishes

Tom Holland says that his family keeps him grounded despite having found fame as Marvel’s Spider-Man — with his mother still making him do the dishes.

The actor, 22, lives at home in Kingston upon Thames with his mother Nicola, a photographer, father Dominic, a comedian and author, and three brothers.

He told Man About Town magazine: “I just try and live my life as normally as possible and that means go to the pub with my mates or going out and playing golf.

“My parents and brothers are such cool people that they wouldn’t really let my life change that much. I’ll come home from a hard day’s work and my mum will tell me to do the dishes, ‘It’s your turn’.”

The Brit School graduate, who was a child star as Billy Elliot in the West End, said his Avengers co-star Robert Downey Jr has been a role model.

He said: “He is just such a breath of fresh air, and for me to get the chance to work with him in such a professional capacity — it’s so refreshing. It shows that you can be the most successful person in the industry and not be a d***, you know?”

Holland’s next outing as the superhero is in Spider-Man: Far From Home which opens in cinemas in July. 

He said: “The director [Jon Watts] realised that superhero movies can be a little silly and a little stupid, and we just wanted to try and sort of take the mick out of the genre, and we did that in the most perfect and subtle way.”
