"" star regularly slips into his superhero outfit away from the cameras to entertain young fans at children's parties. The actor keeps one of the web-slinging action hero's costumes hanging in his wardrobe and reveals he has a tendency to don the one-piece bodysuit to surprise kids with a few Spider-Man stunts to keep himself in shape.

He says, "There's a lot of time between the movies where I have to stay in shape and as strange as it may sound, I actually go to kids' parties (to entertain) and try to stay in shape that way." But Maguire admits he's not always as agile as he appears in the films and sometimes struggles to pull off the cartwheels and wall jumps Spider-Man is known for. He adds, "It's not always without incident, it happens."

Maguire is currently preparing to return to the "Spider-Man" franchise for the fourth film in the series, although production on the upcoming installment - expected to begin in February - has been delayed amid reports of issues with the script.
