Billie Eilish is a pop superstar, so it should be no surprise that she has big-name celebrity fans like Tobey Maguire hitting up her concerts.
The Spider-Man legend was spotted by a fan at Eilish’s show at Los Angele’s The Forum this weekend, bobbing his head happily to one of her songs. Probably owing to his status, Maguire had nabbed a prime seat on the balcony.
Maguire appeared to be with one of his kids, but the fact that he was mouthing along to the songs words probably means that he’s an outright Eilish stan himself.
People are very excited to find out about Spidey’s soft spot for Eilish: the video of him at the concert has been liked over 700,000 times on TikTok in just 14 hours.
In the clip, it genuinely looks like Maguire caught the person filming him. “I was high key waiting for him to get mad and charge lol he hates cameras,” commented someone. “Someone said he has spidey senses to sense a camera on him… I think this confirms. He looked straight at you,” laughed someone else.
Maguire famously went viral late last year when a fan tried to subtly film him at an airport but his spider senses were too strong for them, with the actor turning his head around and giving a powerful death stare.
Other TikTok commenters criticised the person for filming Maguire as he was just trying to enjoy the concert. “He’s with his kid. Can’t y’all leave him alone. I’ve seen to (sic) many videos of him,” someone chastised. “Omg leave him alone. The man stopped making movies for a reason,” wrote someone else.

Maguire might not be done with movies though. Sam Raimi recently discussed the exciting possibility of making Spider-Man 4 with the actor. “I’ve come to realise after making Doctor Strange that anything is possible, really anything in the Marvel universe, any team-ups,” the director said. “I love Tobey. I love Kirsten Dunst. I think all things are possible. I don’t really have a story or a plan.
I don’t know if Marvel would be interested in that right now. I don’t know what their thoughts are about that. I haven’t really pursued that. But it sounds beautiful. Even if it wasn’t a Spider-Man movie, I’d love to work with Tobey again, in a different role.”
