Tom Holland always wore a thong underneath his Spider-Man costume

“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.

    Ahhh, Tommy! Your poor “arsehole.” Let me kiss it and make it better.

    And now comes that awkward moment when you become the topic subject by correcting a British person for saying ‘arsehole’ instead of ‘asshole.’
