‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’: Tom Holland Said His Mom Picked Out His First Apartment Right Next to Her House
Tom Holland received tons of attention for his role as Spider-Man. And when he visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show back in 2017, he talked to Ellen DeGeneres about how he learned he was going to play the hero in the films. Not only that, but he also talked about his first apartment — and it seems his mother had a funny suggestion regarding where he should live. Here’s what Holland shared.
Tom Holland has a very close relationship with his mom
Not all actors have good relationships with their parents, but there seems to be little controversy in Holland’s personal life. The British actor has talked highly of his mother, as she seems to support him in all of his endeavors.
“I owe everything to my lovely mom,” Holland shared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. “You know, she did everything for me growing up when I was going for auditions. And she was like, ‘You know, you gotta stretch if you want to be in Billy Elliot.’ … My mom’s an amazing lady.”
While Holland’s mother is ultra-supportive of his acting career, it seems she’s also quite involved, as Holland mentioned she takes notes for him to consider. “No one gives me notes like my mom does,” he added while visiting Colbert. He then jokingly mimicked his mom. “‘Really, you’re going to do it like that?’ Thanks, mom!”
Holland told Ellen DeGeneres his mother picked out his first apartment to be near him
Holland visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2017, and he seemed ultra-excited to talk about his role as Spider-Man. While talking with DeGeneres, the topic of his housing came up.
“I have just gone through the stressful process of buying my first apartment, which I am over the moon with,” Holland shared with DeGeneres. He then added that he’s been looking for an apartment for years, and it’s his mom who found a place for him.
“She was like, ‘Tom, I found the most amazing apartment, it’s two bedrooms, it’s lovely, you’ll love it. It’s brilliant,'” Holland continued. “I was like, ‘Mom, that sounds amazing! Where is it?’ You could literally throw a stone from my house to where it is. It’s down the street from where I live … in London.”
He then added that he was planning to move to the U.S., but his mom convinced him otherwise. “I’m now just moving five minutes away from my mom.”
It looks like Holland’s girlfriend, Nadia Parkes, is isolating at his place
While moving so close to his mom wasn’t Holland’s ideal apartment situation, he stated he loves it and is happy there. And it seems he’s currently quarantining with girlfriend Nadia Parkes there as well. According to Metro, Parkes and Holland started quarantining together back in May after only being together for a few months.
“They made the decision to isolate together and things have been going great between them,” an insider told the publication. “Tom has told friends and family they’re in an official relationship and living together so soon into their romance has only made them stronger.”
We’re glad young love is blossoming during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Kudos to Holland’s mother for finding his current place of residence! Without it, Holland and Parkes might not be as close as they are currently.
