"For the first time in my life, I put my foot down as the leading actor and was like, 'I'm not f---ing wearing that wig," said the 24-year-old actor, known for his role as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"'I'm going to have shorter hair and you're going to have to deal with it,'" Holland continued.

Holland began filming in late 2020 and his hair was cut differently due to a previous movie role. Tom said that he headed to Atlanta, Georgia to begin filming the untitled "Spider-Man" movie in October 2020, days after he wrapped production as Nathan Drake in "Uncharted," an upcoming action movie based on a video game series of the same name.

For his role as the protagonist in the movie "Uncharted," his hair was cut into a "much cooler" style which was totally different from his Marvel look.

So, when it came time to start filming the third "Spider-Man" movie, the costume department wanted to put a wig on him to better resemble his Peter Parker style.

"I have cool shaved sides and it's slick at the back, and that's not very Peter Parker," Holland said of his appearance in "Uncharted."

Holland continued, "He's a bit of a loser. So, they put this wig on me that was just around the sides."
