“All I have on under that costume is a thong. They brought them in on my first day, like, ‘Here are your thongs.’
I had serious misgivings. ‘Would my arsehole ever be the same again?’. But I had to get used to it, even though I was thinking, ‘No way, no way!’
You have to completely disrobe and then put a dressing gown on, but they’re very comfy ones, you can’t walk around in just a thong, can you imagine? And then you race across the lot to the toilet, then come back, get back into it. It’s such a mission.”—Tom Holland, telling the Shortlist about the many trials and travails of playing Spiderman, most of which involve having to wear barely-there underwear.
