The pair worked together on Ron Howard’s Moby-Dick inspired misfire In The Heart of the Sea.

When Tom Holland was auditioning for Spider-Man he knew just the man to call on for advice. According to an interview with Yahoo! Movies, the young British actor contacted old friend Chris Hemsworth to steer him in the right direction.

When asked if he had helped him, Holland replied-

“He did actually, he did. I sent him an email while auditioning saying sort of like, ‘Hey Chris. So, I’m auditioning for Spider-Man. Can you let them know that I’m amazing or something?’ And he replied like, ‘Hey mate. I’ll let them know you never learn your lines and you are late all the time and you’re terrible at your job.”

Given that Holland landed the role, we’re guessing he said something a lot more helpful. Spider-Man: Homecoming comes out in Ireland on July 7th.
