The 21-year-old actor shared a mortifying-yet-hilarious story on this week's edition of The Graham Norton Show about how an attempt to impress the legendary Madonna went horribly wrong.
Given that Tom Holland has plenty of dance experience Billy Elliot the Musical, the Spider-Man actor figured he could waltz over to Madge when they bumped into each other at an Oscars after party.
'I'd had one too many when a friend of mine dragged me over to meet her,' he remembered 'All the way there I was thinking, 'What should I say.' And all I came up with was 'Hello.'
'To cover the awkward moment [my friend] told Madonna, 'Tom was a great dancer'.... so, I took her by the hand and started dancing with her. As soon as I took her, I realised this was a mistake. A big mistake.'
'Now, I used to do a lot of dancing, but that was all choreographed. I didn't wing it! I didn't just go on a stage and put on a different show every night. So I start dancing with her, and there's not much arms involved.'
'I'm just doing a little two-step to try and warm myself up. She's so unimpressed that I just bailed and left! I leave Madonna on the dancefloor!'
Ouch! That's the kind of moment any sibling would hold over your head for the rest of your life, although luckily Tom probably won't have to worry it in this case.
'The next day, I'm telling my family about my evening....my dad is wetting himself, my mum's cringing and then my little brother goes, 'Who's Madonna?'' Tom laughed.
