Tom Holland recently teamed up with girlfriend Zendaya on Spider-Man: No Way Home, which featured him as Peter Parker and Spiderman as Zendaya played Michelle "MJ" Jones-Watson, but how does he feel about teaming up with her on the upcoming Oscars?

While speaking to The Hollywood Reporter on December 24, Holland was asked if he would ever consider hosting the awards show, which has been faced with rating challenges in recent years.

In response, Holland said that he is not open to hosting this year's event -- before quickly changing his tune.

“Maybe in the future, but in all honesty I’m just too busy right now,” he told the outlet. “I don’t have the time. I’ve got an Uncharted press tour to do, and then I start shooting in early March for [Apple TV+’s The Crowded Room] which is going to take up a lot of my time and is definitely the hardest role I’ve ever taken on."

Holland went on to say that he might be open to hosting the event "one day in the future" but continued to speak about how he doesn't "have the time" at this moment.

As Holland continued to share his thoughts, he confirmed that he would be honored to host the Oscars and said that he's into stepping out of his comfort zone from time to time.

"I would love to do that — I love that kind of thing, I love being put under pressure and doing things that I feel uncomfortable doing. So I’m interested in it, but I just don’t have the time,” he shared.

But after really having some time to let the idea stew, Holland got on board.

Going back on what he had previously told The Hollywood Reporter, Holland changed his mind entirely.

"I just wanted to quickly backtrack on what I said,” he stated. “You asking me about the Oscars — you’re the first person to bring that up — and I’m sitting here going, ‘Of course I would host the f-cking Oscars!’ I just went to the bathroom and I was looking at myself in the mirror and I was like, ‘What kind of f-cking idiot wouldn’t host the Oscars?’ So yeah, if they ask me to, I would, and it would be very fun. I would really enjoy it.”

Then, after being asked if he would prefer to host the Oscars solo, or with a partner, Holland said he would love to host with someone close to him.

"By myself would be great, and with someone I love would be even better,” he said. “I think a shared experience is always better than a solo experience. I’m happy with either, but it would be a very fun evening — I’m sure very stressful, but it would be a lot of fun.”

When Zendaya's name was then mentioned, Holland said, “I could run it by her... But as for her answer, I’m not too sure."
