Tom Holland has mixed up his look and shaved his head.

The 23-year-old actor, who is most famous for his recurring role as Marvel’s ‘Spider-Man’, has undergone a bold new look, shaving off his locks to reveal a grade one haircut.

The new look was made public in a video shared by veteran activist Art (@artdav) on Twitter.

The haircut is believed to be for Holland’s leading role in the upcoming film ‘Cherry’, which follows “an Army medic suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder [who] becomes a serial bank robber after an addiction to drugs puts him in debt."

Holland is currently shooting the film in Cleveland, which is where Art met the actor. During a break in his filming schedule, Holland took some time to visit veterans at the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Centre.

The actor’s new look may only be temporary, but many of his fans are upset over the change in his appearance.

Twitter users are comparing Holland to everything from cartoon character Caillou to rap artist Eminem.

This isn’t the first time Twitter users have reacted emotionally to an actor’s new look.

First there was the uproar ofter Kit Harrington shaved off his beard – dubbed an “utter travesty” by fans after the look first debuted on US show ‘Saturday Night Live’.

The new aesthetic was for a Winston Churchill sketch, Harington explained.
