When Tom Holland
took up the mantle of Spider-Man, he became the third actor in 15 years to play the web-slinging hero
, and the young star says he's gotten some positive feedback from his predecessors.
The 21-year-old English actor
spoke with ET at a screening of Spider-Man: Homecoming
for first responders at Henry R. Luce Auditorium at Brookfield Place in New York City on Monday, and he opened up about his interactions with Tobey Maguire -- who played Spider-Man in Sam Raimi's beloved trilogy, which kicked off in 2002 -- and Andrew Garfield,
who took over from Maguire in the 2012 reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man.
"I met both of them," Holland shared. "Andrew was so lovely, we had a really good chat together. I met Tobey very briefly but yeah, they're both nice guys."
While promoting the film together across the globe, Holland and the 20-year-old former Disney star
have become fast friends -- and it turns out she's even giving him some style tips and lending him clothes, like a leather jacket he recently showed off on his Instagram story.
"I ran out of new clothes and was like, 'Yo mate, can you help me out? I don't have any clothes to wear for this event.' And she was like, 'Oh I have this jacket, do you want to borrow it?' And I tried it on. I still have it," Holland said. "I even saw her in New York like, two days ago, she's like, 'Can I have the jacket back?' And I was like, 'Yeah, I don't I don't know where it is.'"
The young actor admitted that if he's ever going to hit someone up for red carpet fashion advice, it's definitely going to be his lovely co-star. "Zendaya is the one," he said. "At serving looks, she is the one to go to for tips."
Since taking on the role of Spidey, Holland has also been met with a deluge of fans who are excited to meet him and get autographs -- and he's willing to do whatever it takes to make them feel appreciated.
On Thursday, Holland shared a video to Instagram in which he was signing pages of Spider-Man comics, crumpling them up into balls and throwing them out the window of his hotel room down to fans on the street whom he wasn't able to come down to meet in person.
"The thing is, we weren't allowed to leave the hotel because of timing issues, we had to get right to an interview," Holland explained to ET. "So our way of, like, sending the fans things was scrunching up signed pictures and throwing them out the window."
"Admittedly, the police got really mad at one point and were like, 'Stop throwing pictures!' But yeah, we got as many out as we could," he added.
