“I thought Mark Wahlberg was bringing me home for more than just being a gentleman.”
Tom Holland has revealed he thinks Mark Wahlberg gave him a ‘self-pleasure’ device when they first met.
Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg will soon star side by side in a new action-packed blockbuster, Unexplored, which will be released this month. Tom admitted to being impressed with Mark, but at the start of their off-screen relationship, there was a rather awkward moment between them.
In one interview with Access Hollywood, Tom said he thought Mark was coming at him after he gave him a rather special gift. “Basically, Mark Wahlberg was kind enough to give me a massage gun after I left his house in LA, and he drove me back to my hotel,” Tom explained.

“And at the time, I didn’t know what type of massage gun it was, having never seen one before, and I thought it was the type for personal pleasure. I thought Mark Wahlberg brought me home for other reasons than just being a gentleman.”
He added, “I didn’t know you! It’s Hollywood, baby, who knows what’s gonna happen?!”
For context, Mark owns a business that makes massage guns and he and Tom had discussed their grueling workout routines and recovery methods. So Mark thought a massage gun would be a handy gift.
Mark said: “I can’t believe, the whole time you were thinking that. I was just trying to have a conversation with you, talk about your family and talk about my kids and their interests… I gotta get your head out the gutter, mate.”
