Speaking to GQ, he admits that he never expected that he would get that kind of attention after the photos of him and Olivia surfaced online.
Tom explained further: “It’s the first time I’ve ever kind of been in the tabloids. It’s the first time something like this has ever really happened to me,” Tom recalled, saying it was a “shock to the system.”
“But it’s something that you look at and you go, ‘Oh, well, I just don’t put myself in that situation again.’”
The Marvel star told the publication that he is a very private person. “If you do a Google search, I’m not a tabloid person,” he told explained. “I don’t like living in the spotlight. I’m quite good at only being in the spotlight when I need to.”
Thankfully, it's all been a learning experience for him.
“I was just, ‘Whoa, what is going on here?’ And it was just a little stressful. You know, it was a wake-up of, like: ‘This is what your life is now. So just be wary.’”
Tom's comments come only ONE DAY after his rumoured ex, Zendaya, was spotted in Greece with Australian actor, and Euphoria co-star Jacob Elordi, leading many to think that they are now dating.
