Widely known for playing the title character in the 'Spider-Man' film trilogy, Tobey Maguire began his film career in the late 1980s in ‘The Wizard’. 

Tobey is one of the most thought-provoking actors who has delivered nuanced, engaging performances that left audiences spellbound - be it the disaffected young suburbanite in ‘The Ice Storm’ or a geek turned superhero in ‘Spider-Man’. 

Born as Tobias Vincent Maguire to Wendy Brown and Vincent Maguire on June 27, 1975, in California, Tobey’s parents married after his birth and separated when he was two years of age. Part Austrian and part Puerto Rican, Maguire wanted to enroll his name in a home economics class as a sixth grader as he wanted to become a chef. But he changed his mind when his mother, once an aspiring actress herself, encouraged Tobey and offered him $100 to take a drama class instead. 

Tobey dropped out of school. But today, Tobey Maguire is one of the most successful actors in Hollywood.
