Tom Holland Reveals He Might Quit Acting: 'I'd Like to Do Other Things'

Tom Holland is questioning if his future career will be in acting, as he admitted he's not sure if being a movie star is the right job for him.

The actor is currently one of the most coveted stars in Hollywood and his third Spider-Man movie is about to hit theaters in what is set to be one of the biggest blockbusters of the year.

Spider-Man: No Way Home will be Holland's final outing as Peter Parker, alongside Zendaya as MJ.

However, amid all the fanfare with the release, Holland offered a frank view of his career and future as an actor and joked he is having a midlife crisis.

"I don't even know if I want to be an actor," the 25-year-old admitted to Sky News.

"I started acting when I was 11 and 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."

Last month, Holland spoke about his Spider-Man era coming to an end, telling GQ: "If I'm playing Spider-Man after I'm 30, I've done something wrong."

He later clarified this statement in an interview with Extra TV and said that his words were "misconstrued."

"No one actually speaks the truth. I don't know what the future of Spider-Man looks like," he said. "I don't know whether I'm going to be a part of it. Spider-Man will always live on in me and I know that [producer] Amy [Pascal] and the studio are keen to figure out what the next chapter of Spider-Man looks like.

"If that happens to be with me, then that's very exciting but, you know, if it's time for me to walk away then I'll do so proudly," he continued.

"What I was referring to, in that interview, it's because I would be taking up an opportunity for someone to come in and change what being Spider-Man means. Spider-Man could be more diverse, it could be a female character, it could be anything."

Despite expressing hesitation about acting in the future, Holland confirmed last week that he has been cast to play Fred Astaire in an upcoming biopic about the legendary actor, dancer and singer.

"The script came in a week ago," Holland told reporters, per AP. "I haven't read it yet; they haven't given it to me."

He added: "She [Pascal] FaceTimed me earlier. I was in the bath. And we had a lovely FaceTime, but I will be playing Fred Astaire."

Spider-Man: No Way Home is released in theaters on December 17.
