Tom Holland has stated publicly that he will be stepping away from social media.

In a video he shared on Instagram on Sunday, he stated, “I have taken a pause from social media for my mental health because I find Instagram and Twitter to be overstimulating, to be overwhelming.” “When I read things about me online, I get sucked in and spiral out of control. Finally, it has a negative impact on my mental health.

The Spider-Man actor, who has 67.7 million Instagram followers and 7.4 million Twitter followers, has been using both platforms sparingly lately. He last tweeted in February 2022 and uploaded a photo to Instagram six weeks ago.

Holland appeared to be having trouble explaining his views regarding social media as he described the nearly three-minute-long video as a “short return to Instagram. “Hello, guys. I’ve therefore been attempting to make this film for about an hour,” he stated. And for someone who has been acting for, like, I don’t know, 13, 14 years, is it really that long? Yes, it is most likely that lengthy since I find it difficult to speak without umming and ahhing every five minutes. I’ll thus try again.”

The Brothers Trust, a charitable organisation founded by Holland’s parents, and the youth mental health organisation Stem4 received shout-outs from Holland at the conclusion of the film.

Holland shared the video with the comment, “Hello and goodbye… I’ve been avoiding social media for the sake of my mental health, but I felt driven to come on here and discuss @stem4org. I’d like to take a moment to highlight the amazing job that Stem4 does as one of the many organisations that @thebrotherstrust is happy to sponsor. Please view my film, and if you feel moved to share it with anyone you think it would speak to, it would be highly appreciated.”

Not just Holland but other actors have discovered themselves avoiding the spotlight of social media. Daisy Ridley, a Star Wars actress who abruptly left Instagram in 2016, made a comeback to the platform earlier this year after a six-year absence. “I’m emerging from my hibernation on social media renewed, refuelled, and prepared for what I’m calling my ‘Year of Yes.’ She captioned a photo of herself wearing an LED eyemask, “(And that’s the tea.)”

Selena Gomez, Lorde, and even Kim Kardashian, who took a three-month absence after being robbed at gunpoint in Paris in 2016, are some well-known people who have taken a break.
