Wrong Tom, Big Bucks! ‘White Lotus’ Star Snags Spider-Man’s ‘Avengers ‘7-figure Bonus!


Oops, web-slinging the wrong way! Hollander lands Holland’s 7-figure bonus in the hilarious mix-up, proving even superheroes need extra eyes for paperwork.

The “White Lotus” star, 56, revealed on “Late Night With Seth Meyers” Tuesday that he often gets mistaken for the Marvel actor, 27, in “non-visual contexts,” including in the accounts department of his agency, which also briefly represented Holland.

“I went to see my friend who was doing theatre in England. I sat smugly in the audience just having done a BBC show for $30,000,” he recalled to host Seth Meyers.


Hollander said he checked his email during the interval, and that’s when he saw a message from the agency saying that they were sending his “first box-office bonus for ‘The Avengers.’”

The actor from “Night Manager” initially doubted he was part of “The Avengers” until he opened the email.

“It was an astonishing amount of money. It was not his salary. It was his first box-office bonus. Not the whole box-office bonus, the first one,” he revealed.


“And it was more money than I’d ever [seen]. It was a seven-figure sum.”

Hollander said Holland was only “20 or something” in age, so the “feeling of smugness” that he had during the first half of his BBC show “disappeared very quickly.”

“But that’s showbiz,” he continued. “It’s up, it’s down, it’s hero, it’s zero.”

Tom Holland, who is 27 years old, has played the iconic characters of Peter Parker and Spider-Man in multiple successful Marvel movies. Some of these movies include “Captain America: Civil War,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” “Avengers: Endgame,” “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” “Spider-Man: Far From Home” and “Spider-Man: No Way Home.”

Although Holland hasn’t revealed the exact amount he received, it’s reported that he earned a substantial amount for his portrayal of the web-slinging superhero.


 According to Parade, the “Crowded Room” star grossed $1.5 million for the first Spider-Man film after it performed so well at the box office.

As Holland became a giant star, his movie salary increased, and he reportedly earned a whopping $10 million for “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” per the US Sun.

Aside from their financial mix-up, Hollander joked that he’s often introduced to someone who is “very, very excited” to meet him but quickly becomes “confused than disappointed” when they realise he isn’t the younger actor.
