Hi all! What does the pink text mean in this context?
"When I'm acting, it's like I am the character - no one can talk to me. But I'm not so method I'd sell my house and live on the street to play a tramp." (Tom Holland Quotes)

    It means that Tom Holland becomes the character he's playing, and no one can can talk to him as though he is Tom Holland. You can't walk up and say, "Hey, Tom, you want to have dinner this evening?" because he's not Tom when he's acting: he is the character.

    In this context I believe it means that people cannot have a conversation with the actor - anyone who talks to him will have the reply of the character and not the real person.
