Cutting His Hair
Now to the matter that sent the internet into a frenzy and literal meltdown, Tom’s brown locks. The young Peter Parker is known among many things, for his brown hair.
Take a second and imagine just how many fans this Marvel actor has, well into the millions we presume. Now imagine all that shock after the actor showed off his new shaven head. That kind of shock could cause an earthquake.
Tom stepped out in his shaved head a month ago and fans could not deal. When you’re a star, somehow all you have is the property of the fans who give the most savage criticism after.
Holland was no exception as his fans flooded his social media to give their two cents.
In a video he posted on twitter as a favor to a fan where he was sending greetings, Tom showed off his fresh new cut.
In the video, Holland sent shout outs to someone named Sabrina, saying: “It’s Tom Holland here. I’ve just been hanging out with your dad for the afternoon and I thought I’d send you a video and say hello. I hope you’re all well.”
If you weren’t a fan, you would probably pass him on the sidewalk. This is because the look makes him look so different.
It makes his jawline and cheekbones pop. And let’s face it, we’re all used to spidey with a head full of hair.
The new-look caught his fans off-guard. Most of the die-hards and groupies obviously supported the talented actor and proclaimed to love him no matter what. But the trolls had a field day.
It went as far as people comparing his shaved look to other celebrities who have shaved. This list includes the likes of Eminem, Charlie Puth, Justin Timberlake and Eleven from hit show ‘Stranger Things’.
Who would have thought cutting hair could go viral? Definitely not Tom Holland.
