Andrew Garfield and Batkid

In Defense of Andrew Garfield: He Took Batkid to Disneyland

You can go ahead and ignore reports that Andrew Garfield snubbed Batkid. Page Six reported this week that the Amazing Spider-Man actor stormed off during Oscars prep, because he didn't like his lines for a segment with the 5-year-old cancer survivor who saved San Francisco with the help of Make-a-Wish. Not so, says the Academy and representatives for Andrew, who both released statements on Thursday explaining what really happened. And after Andrew couldn't appear on stage with Batkid, he decided to take Miles to Disneyland. Holy cuteness, Batman! And now, he might also take him to the Spider-Man premiere in April.

Here is what the Academy had to say:

"Due to the nature of a live show, hard decisions sometimes must be made which require the Academy to cut segments due to the logistics of production. Andrew Garfield understood that his segment had to be omitted, and he drove to Disneyland on Monday to spend time with 5-year-old Miles Scott (Batkid) and his family."

Andrew's rep also shared a statement with E!:

"In full collaboration with the Academy and the show writer, Andrew prepared a segment for the Oscars to honor Miles Scott as the true hero that he is. At some point overnight on Saturday/Sunday morning, it was decided by those running the show that the segment didn't work in the ceremony. They decided to pull it — Andrew and Miles were equally upset. The producers arranged for Miles and his family to visit Disneyland on Monday and Andrew drove down to visit them and to bring Miles a personal gift. Andrew did the right thing for Batkid and anyone saying otherwise is flat out lying."

Miles's mom had expressed disappointment with the decision to cancel Miles's appearance at the last minute. She said, "We had gone all the way down there, and he went through the rehearsal, and he had a fancy tux and was all ready for it." Hopefully, a stop at the happiest place on Earth made the trip worth it, especially since they conducted a mini Oscars ceremony in Miles's hotel room.
