Tom Holland Reveals Career Advice Elizabeth Olsen Gave Him

25 year-old movie actor Tom Holland became a household name after debuting as the MCU’s Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War. Since then he’s been extremely busy, filming three solo flicks, as well as other projects like Cherry and the Uncharted movie.

No it turns out that Marvel co-star Elizabeth Olsen aka Scarlet Witch gave him some amazing career advice.

Tom Holland is only 25 years old at the time of writing this story, which means he was still a teenager when filming his Spider-Man debut. Elizabeth Olsen co-starred with Holland in Civil War and the Avengers movies, and offered some sound advice to her young colleague. As he recently shared.

I actually learned this from Elizabeth Olsen. She gave me an amazing piece of advice:

‘No’ is a full sentence. ‘No’ is enough.

Well, there you have it. While the advice is short and sweet, it’s probably sage wisdom to such a young star. Tom Holland has been honest about being a people-pleaser, and feeling the responsibility of playing Spider-Man even when he’s not on set. But he also learned it was important to put your foot down and advocate for yourself.

Recently Andrew Garfield has hailed his Spider-Man successor Tom Holland as the “perfect” actor to play the legendary superhero

Andrew said: “I think that Tom Holland is just the perfect Peter Parker and Spider-Man, so I’m just super stoked.

“And I get to just like, be a fan again, which is my preferred position – to be able to sit in the audience and kind of go, ‘Yeah, you screwed up mate, you didn’t do it as well as you could have done, eh?’
MarkMeets have been told that Tom Holland wants to play James Bond: “He talks about it a lot”

The next actor to play 007 will be discussed in 2022, according to Bond’s producer

“I get to be that guy that’s just like, ‘Yeah, I don’t really love the suit…’ I get to be that person which is so much fun.”
Pattinson and Holland’s fans are over excited about their likely collision in new thriller as director Andres had recently teased that The Flash movie will be full of surprises, and their unexpected meeting will no doubt have fans clamouring for a Marvel and DC crossover.

Holland will appear in the final film of the latest Spider-Man trilogy – Spider-Man: No Way Home – in December
