Andrew Garfield Breaks Out His Spider-Man Muscles For Details
Andrew Garfield suited up for the cover of February's Details, though inside the magazine he dressed down to flaunt his new Spider-Man assets. The actor had a break from working on the action film with costar Emma Stone over the weekend to attend the Palm Springs Film Festival, where he joined Jesse Eisenberg and Armie Hammer to accept accolades for The Social Network. He'll be suited up again in a few short days for the Golden Globes — don't forget to fill out your ballot for a chance to win $1,000! Andrew had lots to say to the magazine about his first big Hollywood roles, getting into superhero shape, and the cold reality of life as a rising star. He said:
- On getting in shape for Spider-Man: "I want to feel stronger than I've ever felt, and I want to feel more flexible than I've ever felt. I want to feel powerful. You don't want to just be a pack of meat — it has to be an open body. It does something to your psyche, and it does something to the way you move."
- On a cold realization after landing the Spider-Man role: "I realized immediately how much hard work it was going to be, and how much of a minefield it was going to be in terms of all the shit that comes with it. Stuff that I would like to not have any part of. I mean visibility and being recognized walking down the street. I'm holding out a naïve and ignorant hope that won't happen."
- On going to Hollywood parties: "Those events that look like so much fun in the photos you see — it's mostly people looking over their shoulders at everyone. They're miserable, those parties."
