Tobey MaguireAKA Tobias Vincent Maguire

Born: 27-Jun-1975
Birthplace: Santa Monica, CA

Gender: Male
Race or Ethnicity: White
Sexual orientation: Straight
Occupation: Actor

Nationality: United States
Executive summary: Spider-Man

Maguire's mother was an 18-year-old office worker, his father a 20-year-old restaurant cook, and they were only briefly married a couple years after Maguire was born. His childhood was spent in Washington, Oregon, and California, including some of the seedier sections of Los Angeles. The family was occasionally on welfare, poor when he with his mother, and sometimes he was stashed with grandparents or other relatives. At 13, Maguire decided he wanted to be a "chef" like his old man. He even signed up for a home economics class, but his mother said she would give him $100 if he took a drama class instead.

After ninth grade, he dropped out of high school to free his time for more acting assignments. At 15, he was on Whoopi Goldberg's Tales from the Whoop, on Nickelodeon. At 17, he had an off-kilter high school sitcom on Fox, called Great Scott! It was Maguire's first leading role, but the show lasted only a few weeks before being cancelled.

Maguire had met Leonardo DiCaprio at casting calls, and in 1993 that friendship got Maguire a small part in DiCaprio's This Boy's Life. He appeared in little-known, little-seen films after that, until The Ice Storm in 1997. Subsequently he starred in The Cider House Rules and Wonder Boys. He was also stuck in time in Pleasantville, and played a jockey in Seabiscuit.

Maguire signed a three-picture deal for Spider-Man movies, but after the first one made its many millions, he asked that his contract be renegotiated. Amidst this slight squabble, it was reported that Maguire's back was fragile from a herniated disc incurred while filming horseback scenes in Seabiscuit, and he might not be healthy enough to make Spider-Man 2. The part was informally offered to Kirsten Dunst's boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal, and Maguire's back pain promptly disappeared.

Maguire is a vegetarian, and says he doesn't drink alcohol or smoke tobacco. He is, however, part of the Hollywood's big-name party scene, and has been spotted vomiting on Hollywood sidewalks at least once.
