Tom Holland ‘taking a year off’ from acting

Tom Holland is taking a year off work.

Tom Holland net worth in 2023 is estimated to be around $25 million. Movie critic and publicist Mark Boadman believes Tom Holland’s seemingly meager earnings compared to Maguire’s payday 14 years ago indicates that the actor could have been underpaid.

The 27-year-old actor served as a producer and starred in the psychological thriller ‘The Crowded Room’ but admitted that the project was so intense that he now has to take an extended break out of the spotlight.

“I love the learning curve of becoming a producer. I’m no stranger to hard work. I’ve always sort of lived by this idea that hard work is good work. I really enjoyed it, but then again, the show did break me. There did come a time where I was sort of like, ‘I need to have a break.’ I disappeared. I went to Mexico for a week and had some time on a beach. And I’m now taking a year off, and that is a result of how difficult this show was.”

The ‘Spiderman: No Way Home’ star – who started his career as a child actor when he took on the title role in ‘Billy Elliot: The Musical’ in London’s West End – went on to explain that during his time away from the world of film, he has just been enjoying spending time with family and indulging in leisure activities such as golf.

He said: “I’ve done a little bit of travelling, I had an amazing time. I’ve been seeing my family. I’ve been seeing my friends. I’ve been playing golf. I’ve been, you know, going to the garden center and buying plants and doing my best to keep them alive and all that sort of stuff. I’ve just been trying to be, you know, regular bloke from Kingston and just relax. I don’t think [a new ‘Spiderman’] will come any time soon, but there is definitely a possibility!”

Who Is Tom Holland Dating?

Rumors that Holland and his Spider-Man costar Zendaya were dating began flying as early as July 2017, despite the pair claiming they were purely platonic at the time. Holland and Zendaya humorously denied rumors they had vacationed together in July 2017, with Zendaya tweeting, “Wait wait…my favorite is when it says we go on vacations together HA! I haven’t been on a vacation in years!😂😭🤣hbu @TomHolland1996 ???” Holland responded, “Does the press tour count?”

The pair’s denials didn’t stop speculation, however, with reports that they were simply trying to keep their relationship under wraps adding fuel to the fires of speculation. “They started seeing each other while they were filming Spider-Man,” a source told People in July 2017. “They’ve been super careful to keep it private and out of the public eye…” A now-deleted Instagram comment made by Zendaya’s close friend Skai Jackson’s mother, Kiya Cole, in September 2018 is believed to have confirmed the rumors as well. After JustJared posted about Zendaya celebrating her 22nd birthday with her “rumored real-life boyfriend” and a fan mocked the caption, Cole responded with, “Yes. It’s true. They been on the low for a while.”

Holland and Zendaya continued to laugh off the rumors, with Holland posting an Instagram soon after Cole’s comment insisting Zendaya was just a “mate.”

When Zendaya began dating her “Euphoria” costar Jacob Elordi in August 2019, fans wondered if, perhaps, the Spider-Man costars had been telling the truth about their friendly status the whole time, but Zendaya’s relationship with Elordi ended after a few months, and by July 2021, Holland and Zendaya dating rumors were back, courtesy of the pair having been spotted kissing in a car.

They have been dating happily ever since. But Holland told GQ in November 2021 that they would continue to stay as private as possible about their relationship, particularly when it comes to discussing it in interviews. “One of the downsides of our fame is that privacy isn’t really in our control anymore, and a moment that you think is between two people that love each other very much is now a moment that is shared with the entire world . . . We sort of felt robbed of our privacy,” he told GQ. “It’s not a conversation that I can have without her. I respect her too much . . . This isn’t my story. It’s our story. And we’ll talk about what it is when we’re ready to talk about it together.”

But fans don’t need interviews to peep Holland and Zendaya’s chemistry. The pair hit the red carpet for his movie “Uncharted” together in February 2022 (pictured above), and he was regularly spotted visiting her in Boston as she filmed her movie “Challengers,” per E! News.

Recently, though, it seems the two have been getting more comfortable showing off their romance. In March 2023, Zendaya was spotted wearing a ring with Holland’s initials on it, and the following month, they had a date night at Usher’s concert in Las Vegas. In May 2023, they also attended game two of the NBA’s Western Conference semifinals between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Golden State Warriors.
