It’s all about an er(ror)! Actor Tom Hollander says he once mistakenly received Avengers actor Tom Holland’s seven-figure bonus paycheck for Marvel Studios’ superhero film franchise. Hollander, known for starring roles in Pride and Prejudice and The White Lotus, revealed the pay error on Late Night with Seth Meyers, adding that people often confuse the two actors due to their similar sounding names.
One day, Hollander said, he found a message in his mailbox containing a pay slip, intended for Spider-Man star Holland, labelled as the first tranche of a box-office bonus for one of The Avengers films. “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. And it was more money than I’d ever [seen]. It was a seven-figure sum,” the actor told Meyers.
The actor also said he was sometimes introduced to “excited, then confused, then disappointed children” who probably thought they were meeting Spider-Man.
