Be still our beating hearts! We can’t handle all this hotness!!!
Andrew Garfield shows us what he’s werking with on TWO covers of VMan magazine’s summer issue.
The Amazing Spider-Man star was interviewed by none other than the original Spidey, Tobey Maguire for a deep conversation on success, the cult of celebrity and life after Spider-Man.
Here are some HIGHlights:
On idolizing Spidey:
"I needed Spidey in my life as a kid, and he gave me hope…Peter Parker has inspired me to feel stronger, he made me, Andrew, braver. He reassured me that by doing the right thing it's worth it, it's worth the struggle, it's worth the pain, it's worth even the tears and the bruises and the blood…He saved my life."
On the process of getting THE role:
"They like to put you through the ringer, in the respect that it creates drama and tension among a generation of actors. Few of the guys who were up for it, and I actually had dinner with [actor] Jamie [Bell] the night of my screen test and his screen test. We compared notes and war stories…we're all in it together, knowing that when you take off that bodysuit someone else is going to be stepping into your sweat immediately after. It's a weird kind of cattle call."
On tips for life after Spidey from Tobey:
"The main thing I'm thinking about and worrying about is what happens after this movie comes out. What was your experience when you became Spider-Man in people's eyes? …Right now I have a host of fears that I'm contending with on a minute-to-minute basis."
On what’s next for his career:
"There's a lot of reevaluation of what is going on and it's a very complex moment, what I'm imagining is about to occur. Maybe you're right. Maybe it doesn't have to be so complicated. It is what it is and you carry on. As far as what happens after that, I don't know. I know that I love acting, and that's pretty much it.”
Srsly, this interview makes us wanna go to the movies NOW!!!
