SPIDER-MAN star Tobey Maguire has welcomed old friend Sara Gilbert, her lesbian lover and their son into his Hollywood home while the former ROSEANNE star's own house is being renovated.

Maguire, who studied acting with Gilbert in his teens and once shared a home with her, didn't hesitate to offer up his pad when he heard his old pal was homeless as her home was undergoing construction.

A source says, "Tobey heard about Sara's plight and invited her to move in with him... They go way back."

Maguire lives in the home with his longtime girlfriend JENNIFER MEYER.
