Tobias Vincent "Tobey" Maguire (born 27 June 1975) is an American actor. He is best known for playing the role of Spider-Man in all three movies (alongside James Franco).

Early life

Maguire didn't finish high school because he wanted to be an actor.

Maguire has been a vegetarian since 1992. In 2009, he became a vegan.

He often makes changes in his diet to either gain or lose weight. For example, he dramatically decreased his calorie intake for Seabiscuit. Then he quickly gained weight for Spider-Man 2.
