Actor, Film Producer
Tobey Maguire is a pretty famous American actor and producer. He was born June 27, 1975 in Santa Monica, California. His mom and dad were single teenagers when he was born.
Tobey Maguire lived a difficult childhood, close to poverty. He left school young enough to go to castings, not out of passion but to earn a living! He abandoned his dream of being a cook like his father.
Within a short time after he was born, his parents got married, but the life did not go well, and, as a result, within a two-year period they ended up divorcing.
As a result, Tobey had not had an ordinary childhood, since he had to shuttle between his parents. It also affected his upbringing. He could never acquire a necessary education.
His father, Vicent Maguire, was a chef. As a young child, Tobey too wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps, but his mom, Wendy Brown encouraged him to become an actor. She was a screenwriter in Hollywood. Wendy Brown registered Tobey to an acting class, and since then he had decided to become an actor.
As previously noted, Tobey’s mother wanted him to be a superstar actor, so she had started training him since his childhood.
Prior to his 1989 film debut with The Wizard, he had appeared in numerous commercials.
In this The Wizard, he played a minor role without speaking. His acting career actually started—but did not take off— with the movie titled The Boy’s Life, where he starred together with Leonardo di Caprio.
Since then, he had regularly appeared in movies but was never able to make a big one. His career took off in 1997 when two of his films titled The Ice Storm and Pleasantville won acclaim. With these films, he had gained the status of an actor—a famous actor.
He was then hired to top the bill in the award-winning drama The Cider House Rules (1999) alongside Michael Caine and Charlize Theron.
The biggest breakthrough of his career happened back in 2002. It was then when he was cast in Spider-Man.
All of the three movies in the Spiderman series were box office hits and became the films of the year that generated tons of cash, breaking all records.
After the first movie of the trilogy, Tobey was already more than just an actor—rather, he became a superstar. So far, he has acted in many successful movies.
Tobey Maguire then turns to more sombre roles in The Details screened in 2012 in which he plays tortured characters.
Add to that that moviegoers saw the actor’s name starring in the acclaimed sports drama Seabiscuit (2003) and he picked up his first-ever Golden Globe nomination after being seen alongside Jake Gyllenhaal and Natalie Portman in front of the cameras in the drama Brothers that was published in 2010.
In 2013, he sealed his reunion with Leonardo DiCaprio on the set of the film Gatsby the Magnificent by Baz Luhrman, of which he is the narrator.
In 2015, he returned with the biopic Pawn Sacrifice, devoted to the life of chess player Bobby Fischer, but the reception from the public was more mixed.
He played under the direction of big names like Woody Allen for Deconstructing Harry (1998) or Terry Gilliam in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. But it was Ang Lee, the director, and the movie The Ice Storm, the same year, that allowed him to get noticed by the public and the professionals.
Tobey Maguire has won several magnificent awards and nominations in the course of his career. Even being a child actor, he had already won two nominations: the “Teen Choice Award” and the “TFCA Award”.
As an actor, he has been eligible for countless awards and nominations such as “Screen Actors Golden Globe Award”, “Saturn Award”, “MTV Movie Award”, and “Golden Globe Award” among others.
