Reasons Tobey Maguire doesn't make films include gambling and 'bark like a seal'

Spider-Man star Tobey Maguire was one of Hollywood's biggest actors.The American burst onto our screens after landing the role of Peter Parker in 2002 - however, if you're wondering what he's up to these days, well, you're not alone.Yes he had a big role in the Marvel film Spiderman: No Way Home - but due to the fact he was an original web-slinger they sort of had to bring him backApart from some sporadic roles in movies over the last few years Maguire has pretty much dropped off of the radar entirely.A vegan, he was treated for a drinking problem early in his career but has remained sober since.Divorced Tobey, 46, is also a high-stakes poker player who organised the celeb-packed private games of the 2000s, which were featured in the film Molly’s Game.From Hollywood stinkers to accusations of making a woman "bark like a seal" here are some of the reasons Tobey Maguire is no longer appearing in films.It's funny to think that the franchise that kick-started Maguire's Hollywood career is also the same franchise that stunted it.Following the successes of Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2, hopes were incredibly high for the third instalment of the superhero story.Yet, Spider-Man 3 was an unbelievably bad movie and derailed the momentum that the first two had given the franchise.It was received poorly by critics and anyone that watched will have been desperately trying to erase the cringe memory of Peter Parker dancing on the big screen.Even director Sam Raimi conceded that the film had its shortcomings. In a 2014 interview with Nerdist, he said: "I messed up plenty with the third Spider-Man, so people hated me for years." One of Maguire's more infamous 'habits' has been his penchant for gambling.
