When Kimmel asked how Holland is getting along with his housemates having been in lockdown for a month, the Spider-Man star joked that there has been a lot of “getting drunk” and that Ryan Reynolds recently sent him a case of “spider-gin.”He then went on to say that he’s lucky to be “doing fine” and living in a place that has a nice outdoor space.
Holland also said that he’s been “a little bit productive” and has been writing a screenplay with his brother Harry that they just sent out to producers.
