Andrew Garfield Talks Fame & Celebrity Being A New Religion — Its ‘Seductive Forces Of Evil’

Andrew Garfield


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├óΓé¼┬ªwell, 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├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥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??
