Tom Holland, our favorite movie-spoiling celebrity, is deeply hurt because of Gwyneth Paltrow. And yes, he has a right to be. The lad who become the world’s favorite Spiderman is someone no one can forget after meeting. However, the actress who plays Pepper Potts in the MCU surely didn’t remember being in a movie with him!
Rewind a few weeks and you’d notice headlines aflame with news that Paltrow didn’t remember being in the first Spiderman movie that came out only two years back in 2017. In a clip from her appearance at The Chef Show, she can be seen absolutely oblivious to the fact that she also starred in the movie alongside Robert Downey Jr. who plays her love interest in the Marvel movies.
To quote her exactly, the 46-year-old said, “Spider-Man? We weren’t in Spider-Man…no…I was in Avengers. What?” In response to this, Tom said in a video for PopSugar, “I mean, I’ve only worked with Gwyneth one time, on Spider-Man: Homecoming, which she doesn’t remember.” He further added, “Which still, to this day, breaks my heart.”

Now, now while we understand why Tom feels so hurt let’s not forget that Paltrow has done so many Marvel movies that she might just have some stuff mixed up in her mind. Happens, right? We wouldn’t know, honestly.
In the same video, Tom also pointed out this other time when Paltrow didn’t address him by his name. Back in 2018 she shared a picture for Downey’s birthday in which she can be seen with him and Holland. The caption for that photo read, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY, dear heart. Love me and that other guy in the photo.”
Clearly still bleeding, Tom brought up that Instagram post in this new video. He said, “One time, when we were shooting Avengers: Infinity War, I think it was — no, it was Endgame — she was in her blue suit and I was in my Spider-Man suit, and she came up and she asked me for a photo, with me and Robert [Downey Jr.]. And then, I think she posted it and said: ‘Robert Downey Jr., myself and this guy.” Ha ha, someone definitely got wounded!
In the PopSugar interview in which Tom bared open his hurt feelings, he can be seen sitting with Zendaya and Jacob Batalon. The three are quite a group, aren’t they? The last month they’ve been busy with promotional events. Oh, and Jake Gyllenhaal has also been hanging out with them.
Such a cool team! We cannot wait to watch this movie.
