Tom Holland despises Hollywood.

Despite his eternal enthusiasm for filmmaking, the “Spider-Man: No Way Home” star, 27, stated that the entertainment industry is “not for him.”

“Look, I really am a massive fan of making movies, but I really do not like Hollywood, it is not for me,” the British actor stated on Jay Shetty’s “On Purpose” podcast, which was released on Sunday.

“The business really scares me. I understand that I’m a part of that business, and I enjoy my kind of interactions with it.”

“But that said, I am always looking for ways to kind of remove myself from it to kind of just live as normal a life as possible.” Holland continued.

“Today, doing this [podcast] is a very rare thing for me to do,” he added, saying that Shetty’s platform provided him with a “safe space” to be vulnerable.

Holland claims that some of his friends have “lost themselves” in the entertainment world and that he is afraid of doing the same.

“I definitely think it has been an ongoing thought, which is don’t lose yourself,” Holland, who is dating “Euphoria” actress Zendaya, added.

“I’ve seen so many people come before me and lose themselves, and I’ve had friends that I’ve grown up with that aren’t friends of mine anymore, because they’ve lost themselves to this business.”

“I just am really, really keen to focus on what makes me happy, which is my family, it’s my friends. It’s my carpentry, my golf, the charity that my mom runs,” he continued.

“Like, that is what makes me really happy, and that is what I should protect.”

Holland also described how he discovered he was “definitely addicted to alcohol” after attempting to go a month without drinking.

After attempting “Dry January” and feeling the temptation to drink, Holland, who recently announced his break from acting, said “all I could think about was having a drink.”

“I was waking up thinking about it. I was checking the clock … And it just really scared me,” he explained.

“Maybe I have a little bit of an alcohol thing. So I sort of decided to punish myself and say, I’ll do February as well. I’ll do two months off.”

Holland said he was “really struggling” after going dry for two months, which led him to fear that he may have “an alcohol problem.”
