When speaking on the rigors of being an A-List celebrity, I’ll often reference an anecdote about the time I met Ryan Reynolds at the premiere of his Netflix action film 6 Underground.
The first “Red Carpet” premiere that I’d ever been to, what struck me most was the multitude of directions Reynolds was being pulled in at once. A publicist dragging him this way, his agent dragging him the other, all while rabid media unleash camera flashes and generally benign questions.
And to his credit, Reynolds crushed it. He’s every bit as charming as he seems on camera. He engaged with and fielded questions from every reporter in the room, myself included (I asked who Deadpool would drunk text — he said he’d probably call Logan and seeing him “Tomorrow” from Annie).

My point is that — being remarkable attractive and filthy rich aside — being a celebrity seems like a grind of a job, so I can totally understand Tom Holland’s pseudo-frustration with the ceaseless questions regarding Spider-Man 3.
During a recent interview with The Playlist, Holland — who’s likely spent the last six months straight fielding questions about Spider-Man 3 — finally said aloud what he’s likely been thinking for quite some time:
“…like when people ask you questions about…Spider-Man…And you’re like why would you even? Do you really think I’m going to tell you?” Holland asked.
Hopefully, for Holland’s sake, he’ll at least be able to discuss the film’s title soon, as it appears as though we could be days away from a reveal following the slew of fake titles released by the cast (Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon all posted different Spider-Man titles to their social media).
