Female First says Tom Holland had to learn how to bartend for his new movie ''Uncharted''. They quote him as saying, "One of my favorite things about what we do for a living is when you get the opportunity to learn a new skill for a reason, other than you just want to give it a go. So, I went to a bartending school. I ended up doing a few shifts at this bar in London, which was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed it. And it's a nice little set piece in the movie. As word spread around town and people started figuring out that 'apparently Tom Holland's bartending at this bar,' then the general manager started figuring it out. And then eventually I sort of got kicked out. I have been back to the bar, but it's a little bit of a rocky relationship at the minute. I've been giving them a lot of press though. So, they just shut up and let me back."
The movie topped the weekend box office with $44 million
