‘Spider-Man’ star Tom Holland reaches breaking point in Hollywood: ‘Taking a year off’

"Spider-Man" actor Tom Holland announced he’s momentarily taking a step back from his acting career.  After the British star struggled to play the role of producer and actor simultaneously, Holland revealed what pushed him to take a break from Hollywood.  "It was a tough time, for sure," the 27-year-old said during an interview with "Extra" for his film "The Crowded Room." 'SPIDER-MAN' STAR TOM HOLLAND TAKING A BREAK FROM SOCIAL MEDIA "We were exploring certain emotions that I have definitely never experienced before. And then on top of that, being a producer, dealing with the day-to-day problems that come with any film set, just added that extra level of pressure." While Holland executive produced the dark psychological-thriller series, he admitted that portraying a character who is suffering from mental health issues at the same time wasn’t an easy task.  "I’m no stranger to hard work," Holland noted. "I’ve lived by the idea that hard work is good work. Then again, the show did break me." The "Unchartered" star added that there was a point when he escaped to a beach in Mexico for a week and "laid low" because he desperately needed a break.
