When do humans feel the sexiest? Hmm. We’ve heard a variety of answers to this question. Some say they feel it when naked, when they’re dressed to the nines, or just when they’re at home, relaxed and being themselves — e.g. “sweatpants, hair-tied, chilling with no make-up on” as Drake once said. But one answer we don’t hear a lot? After leaving the gym.

Well, this is apparently when Spider-Man: Homecoming actor Tom Holland says he feels the sexiest. It sounds a little odd, that one could feel sexually attractive while rocking matted hair, a layer of sweat, and a red face, but it actually makes sense. Endorphins, right?

We learned this after watching a recent Q&A between PEOPLE’s editor in chief, Jess Cagle, and the British actor. Holland was asked to answer the questions as quickly as possible, and some of his other answers are pretty interesting as well. Here are some other revelations from that sit-down!

Strangers describe me as: “Fun.” Close friends describe me as: “Stupid” (And we DON’T BELIEVE IT, TOM).

The movie I’ve seen the most times is: “Probably The Amazing Spider-Man 1.”

I think I’m really good at: “Football, but I’m not really good at football.” Hahaha. Cagle clarifies, “Is that British football or American football? Holland says, “The one where we play it with our feet, so, yeah, football.” SAVAGE.

The best advice I ever received is: “Turn nerves into excitement.”

The worst advice I ever received is: “Go out and have some fun, by Mark Wahlberg.” HAHAHA.

As a child I dreamed of becoming: “Spider-Man, it’s true. Yeah. Spider-Man was the dream.” “When did that start?” Cagle asks. “When I was just a wee boy. I think Spider-Man 2 would have been the big old fandom moment for me.”

As I’m falling asleep I think about: “Spider-Man: Homecoming, July 7th, you should check it out. It’s really good.” Good lord. This boy is good at press junkets.

Our favorite though?

The song that always makes me dance is: “Michael Jackson, ‘Smooth Criminal’. If that song just came on now, you would see an amazing routine.” We are SERIOUS FANS of Holland’s dancing. Please, Tom, can we see this? Pretty please?
