Tom Holland and Chris Hemsworth interviewed each other

It's evident from watching the two Avengers stars' interviews and social media posts that Tom Holland and Chris Hemsworth are good friends. In 2019, while Hemsworth was promoting Men in Black: International and Holland was promoting his latest film, Spider-Man: Far From Home, the star of Thor interviewed Holland, and the two actors joked around the entire interview per Insider.

According to Insider, the Thor actor started the interview by acting like he didn't know who Holland was, calling him "Tom Hiddleston." Then Hemsworth asked why Thor wasn't a part of the new Spider-Man movie. Holland replied the new movie was only for the "front-runners" of the Avengers.  The banter continued when Hemsworth asked Holland to name his favorite actor. Holland replied, "Liam Hemsworth."

Worry not: the "interview" was all in fun. In 2019, Holland posted on Instagram, wishing Hemsworth a Happy Birthday:  "Happy birthday you absolute legend." It's clear that the bond between these actors has extended far beyond the screen and into real life as well.
