The 24-year-old Spider-Man actor revealed that his co-star gave him some valuable advice about handling fan interactions in a recent interview with British GQ.
“Talking to Zendaya‘s helped me a lot, actually,” Tom said. “I used to come across sometimes as a bit of a d-ck to fans, mainly as I was always so surprised that they’d want a picture with me or signature or whatever.”
He explained, “I’d have the typical Londoner reaction, one of instant suspicion: ‘Why are you talking to me?’ Zendaya spotted this and quickly told me that this sort of reaction was going to be more aggro than just smiling and taking the picture. She totally changed the way I am able to be more comfortable in public.”
Tom also shared whether or not the upcoming third Spider-Man film would be his last in the series.
“I hope not, but I don’t have another contract – yet,” the actor revealed. “As I was cast as Spider-Man six years ago, I have always had the contract there as a safety net. I would never need to worry as, next year, I always had another Spider-Man film – but not any more. I’m just looking at my phone waiting for it to ring with a new contract.”
