It has been a crazy ride to fame for Tom Holland, who is winning hearts all around the world as the new Spider-Man. But he does not want to get lost in the glitz and glamour of the industry.

The actor thinks he has done a great job at evading the spotlight, and says he lives the "most normal and regular life ever".

"I have done quite a good job of only being in the spotlight when I need to be... Like I don't get paparazzied. I don't go to fancy parties. I don't do that kind of stuff," Holland said in an interview while promoting his film Spider-Man: Far From Home in Bali.

"When I am not on the press tour or doing red carpet, I live the most normal and regular life ever. I have done a good job, at kind of, keeping out of the spotlight when it is possible," he added.

How important it is to stay away from the limelight?

"It is very important because you can get lost in it. No one will ever say no (to you) and no one will ever tell you anything bad. That is why I keep my brothers, my family very close because they will tell me that 'I am being a d*ck or an idiot'," the 23-year-old said.

"So, it is super important and I try very hard to keep away from it. And that is why when I am not on the press tour, you will never see me in the newspaper or on a tabloid because I am at home playing golf," added the actor, who has three brothers -- Sam, Paddy and Harry.

The London native says working and travelling back-to-back can get "lonely", and being with family helps him deal with it well.

"What is great is that they (family members) don't tag along because Harry works (with me). He is a videographer. And we are actually planning to direct our film this year, which is exciting.

"Sam sleeps in his hotel room... He is on a holiday here," he said with a chuckle.

On a serious note, he said: "It is lovely to be able to share this process because it will be quite lonely otherwise. I spend so much time on the road."

Holland was introduced as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War in 2016. He got his first solo movie with Spider-Man: Homecoming -- which took the superhero back to school.

He will be back as the superhero with his second solo movie Spider-Man: Far From Home, which Sony Pictures Entertainment India will release in India on July 4 in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.

The actor might not be a superhero or the 'friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man' in real life, but he came across as a friendly and affable person with a charming personality -- with the way he cracked jokes in the middle of the interview, by taking a jibe at his track record of giving out spoilers and a little panic attack when he was unable to find his phone in his pocket.

Looking back at his journey, he said: "It has been crazy man. 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' was a whirlwind, and the press tour was crazy. And since then I haven't stopped. I have been lucky that I have been making movies and working with people who I really admire."
