Andrew Garfield is defending his derrière. During a "Late Night With Seth Meyers" appearance on April 28, the actor addressed rumors that his "Spider-Man: No Way Home" costume featured a fake butt — rumors fueled by his costar and fellow Peter Parker actor, Tom Holland.
"He's just stirring the pot, old Tom. He can't help himself," Garfield said, adding that Holland was likely trying to get a rise out of Marvel fans. "There's an expression that we have in entertainment, which is, 'We want to put bums on seats.' We want to get the audience sat and paying their tickets, and Tom is pretty great at creating subgenres of games for you all while you're at the cinema going, 'Well that butt doesn't look real. Toby's looks like it might be real. Could Andrew have that much ass? Maybe, potentially.'" He's not wrong — that exact dialogue may or may not have run through our mind while watching the movie.
"All I know is that I am totally unmodified."
Further prompted by host Meyers, Garfield set the record straight about his backside, once and for all. "All I know is that I am totally unmodified," said the star, who recently announced he's taking a break from acting. "That's all I can share. I think Tom is very good at marketing."
Holland first brought Spider-Man's butt size into question during a "Late Night With Seth Meyers" interview in February. "I'm not gonna tell you who, but one of us has a fake ass in their suit. You can figure that out for yourselves," he teased, referencing himself, Garfield, and Tobey Maguire in "Spider-Man: No Way Home." So, was it Maguire who needed some artificial junk added to his trunk? We'll have to wait and see if he chimes in.
