Tobey is looking a little wax-like in this weekend's issue of PARADE. He is obviously promoting Spider-Man 3 but in the interview he opens up about his personal life as well. Life hasn't always been about making blockbusters and raising his newborn daughter. His parents were young when he was born and actually divorced when he was only 3. Spending his childhood bouncing between relatives helped motivate him to become successful at such a young age. Here's more:
“Growing up the way I did, I had a very serious ambition to make some money, to have some security and comfort in my life,” he adds. “When I first started being successful at this, financially speaking, I was very conservative with my money. That was definitely a product of where I came from. You know those Lotto winners who win big and then blow through all the money? That would never happen to me. I just never wanted to put myself in the position where my spending was so huge that I had to keep making movie after movie. My mentality about that has changed a bit,” he concedes, now that he’s a bona fide superstar. He adds, “I feel like you could drop me anywhere in the world, anonymously, and I’d figure out how to survive. If you stripped away everything I’ve got—the money, the fame, the possessions, everything—I know that I’d find a way to get along, because, basically, that’s what I’ve had to do all my life.”
Tobey never seemed like a high maintenance actor anyway but judging from the amount of money he banked up in the Spidey franchise we bet he'll never have to worry about being financially dependent ever again.
