Andrew Garfield is really letting us know how he feels about adjusting to being in the public eye while promoting his new flick 99 Homes — and it is quite inneresting!
We knew the interview was going to be different when it starts with the actor saying:
"Why the f*ck am I doing this? Coming in today to do interviews, I'm like, why? …I know that I'm an actor and it's part of the job and I feel lucky to get to do that, but with the interviews, it's such a weird thing. What do I have to say?"
Welp, he sure found some things to talk about!

The 32-year-old actor, who feels he's "not accepted" in today's culture, has trouble separating his professional and personal worlds:
"My priority is the work, and the work is dependent on people not knowing very much about me. So where's the balance? Where's the line that I have to walk, and we all have to walk? Because I do want to make a difference in the world, I really do, and that's a really cheesy thing to want."
We don't think that's cheesy! You might be on to something here, Andy!
Emma Stone's beau — are they together? are they not? we need answers, people! — touched on what it means to fit in with the standard as a male in Hollywood:
"We're only accepted if we are…well, name it. White, handsome, charming, charismatic, thin-enough eyebrows to be beautiful, but thick enough to still be masculine … We are told constantly we're not enough, we're told constantly we don't have enough, we're told constantly that we'll never be enough."
His rise to fame after The Amazing Spider-Man caused the Brit to criticize society's infatuation with celebrities:
"I'm still f*cked up in my own ways, and insecure, and scared, and don't really know who I am. Celebrity is the new religion, as far as I can see, along with money, power, status. It's all the same umbrella—the seductive forces of evil, really."
What do U think, Perezcious readers?? Are we wrong for being curious about the lives of celebs who we love so dearly??
