At age 21, Tom Holland has had a quick rise to fame, from his title role in Billy Elliot the Musical to starring in The Impossible, to being cast as Spider-Man.

At a time in life when most of us would be in college, interning somewhere, or finally buying beer, Holland’s had the incredible chance to work with celebs like Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Pratt, and get a Spidey blessing from Andrew Garfield.

So how is Holland handling this quick rise to stardom?

On a recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show, Holland says his life has “flipped upside down in the last six weeks.” 

Lucky for Holland, he was sitting on the couch with a fellow celebrity who also became famous at a young age — Mark Wahlberg.

Wahlberg, first known as front man for the group Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, made his way into acting with films like Boogie Nights and Three Kings, and has continued to appear in more recent titles such as The Departed, Ted and Transformers.

Yup, this was a thing.

Host Graham Norton asked the now 46-year-old Wahlberg what celebrity advice he could offer Holland, to which Wahlberg joked: 

He then asks Holland a pertinent question for any up-and-coming celebrity.

Wahlberg admits he went to jail before his career launched and Holland will just have to experience it post-fame. A celebrity walk-of-shame in a sense, right?

This may come off as the worst insight ever for a young actor, but Wahlberg turned it around with some very Entourage-sounding tips.

Holland happily agreed to that. Plus from the looks of his Instagram, he’s already having a great time with his brothers.

Hopefully no arrests anytime soon though. For anyone. OK?

Watch the full interview (with best/worst advice ever) here.

Some of that sounds pretty great! But do try to avoid jail, Tom.
