Tom Holland is getting comfortable with Zoom interviews.

On Tuesday, the 24-year-old actor showed off the hilarious (and relatable) pants-free look he’s adopted for virtual interviews while appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

“You posted this photo recently of your virtual press look,” Jimmy Fallon said to Holland at the beginning of their interview, before pulling up a screenshot of the young star’s Instagram Story earlier this month where he gave fans a behind-the-scenes look at his at-home “fashion.”

“It made me laugh,” Fallon, 46, added. “It’s only the waist up. I thought that was rad.”

The late-night host then pulled up a tweet from director Joe Russo, who Holland is working with for his upcoming film, Cherry. In the Feb. 10 tweet, Russo mocks Holland’s pantless look during his own virtual interview, writing “Thanks for the fashion tip!”

“The thing that kills me is Joe’s actually got nicer legs than I do,” Holland said, prompting Fallon to ask him if he thinks Russo shaves his legs.

“I don’t know what he does. I don’t have to shave my legs because I’m a prepubescent teenager,” the Spider-Man: Homecoming star joked.

Holland then gave Fallon and viewers a “little glance” at his legs, standing up from his chair to show his lower half.

Fallon noted that it’s “interesting” that Holland won’t wear pants for his virtual press appearances but still puts on socks.

“Yeah, ’cause it’s cold,” the British actor said. “Because I’ve got to wear this suit jacket, and the suit jacket’s too hot. [So] I have my legs out because it’s nice and freeing but then my toes get cold. So I wear socks.”
