Andrew Garfield claims he was left heartbroken after playing the role of Spider-Man. Did the actor regret taking on the role of his childhood dreams?
He was quoted saying, “I’ve been preparing for it for most of my life”
Why does Andrew Garfield regret being Spider-Man?
In an interview to Variety, the 33-year-old revealed the dark facts as to why he is disappointed with the part he had played. While speaking to Amy Adams in ‘Actors on Actors’, he opened up about the struggles one has to face in big budget movies.
He shared, “There’s something about being that young in that kind of machinery which I think is really dangerous”.
He added, “I was still young enough to struggle with the value system, I suppose, of corporate America really, it’s a corporate enterprise mostly.”
Andrew Garfield mentioned that on the “priority list” the character and story are not always kept on top. He further shared his experience saying, “I found that really, really tricky. I signed up to serve the story, and to serve this incredible character that I’ve been dressing as since I was three, and then it gets compromised and it breaks your heart,”
He is not the only one?
Suprisingly even Amy Adams opened up about her experience. She mentioned that even she did not feel like owning the part of Lois Lane.
Adams nodded to Garfield’s experience by saying, “That’s the tricky thing with Lois, that I find is, I love playing her, I love everyone I work with, but sometimes it’s tricky because I feel she’s in service of the story instead of the story serving the character”
The Superman actress concluded her views by saying, “That sometimes can be tricky when you show up and you really wanna retain a character and you have to serve the story….in a perfect universe they all work together.”
