Tom Holland Shares That He’s Been Sober For Over a Year & Opens Up About Mental Health Struggles
Tom Holland is opening up about his mental health journey. The 26-year-old actor recently chatted with Entertainment Weekly about his character in Apple TV+’s “The Crowded Room” and he revealed that it made him take a hard look at his own personal struggles. “Learning about mental health and the power of it, and speaking to psychiatrists about Danny’s struggles, has been something that has been so informative to my own life. I’m no stranger to the physical aspects of the job doing the whole action movie thing, but the mental aspect, it really beat me up, and it took a long time for me to recover afterward, to sort of get back to reality,” he said. In the show, Tom plays Danny Sullivan, a young man who accidentally lands himself in trouble after being arrested for a crime he did not commit. The actor realized after almost a year of filming that he needed to disconnect from his character for his mental health. “I was seeing myself in him, but in my personal life,” he revealed.
