Zendaya, in particular, became his guide to his new reality. “Having her in my life was so instrumental to my sanity,” he says. “She is so good at being the role model for young guys and girls. When anyone comes up, like, ‘Can I have a picture?,’ it’s never a bad time. Whereas my initial reaction was: ‘Why are you talking to me? Leave me alone.’ ”

Just recently he was walking in London, when a group of guys started following him and taking pictures. “Something had happened in my life and it really put me in a bad mood,” he says. “I was just trying to keep my head together, and I turned around and told them to get lost.”  […] But after a few yards, Holland turned around and apologized. “I have to remind myself that being Spider-Man is more of a responsibility than just having a job,” he says later. “There are kids out there who are bullied at school who don’t fit in, and Spider-Man is their fucking go-to guy, you know? And at the moment I’m that guy.”
