Andrew Garfield: Spider-Man Update!
“We started shooting two weeks ago and then we have Christmas off,” the 27-year-old British actor shared. “Then we’re back into it for, gosh, a fair bit of time… I’m going to have to hibernate into this character for at least four or five months… I feel like a kid in my pajamas. I can only say how it feels and it feels pretty special. It feels like a dream realized and a fantasy realized. Again, I don’t take it lightly and I feel incredibly lucky that I get to wear spandex for the next couple of months.”
As for his how his physique is going to be in the flick, Andrew said, “I think Spider-Man needs strength, but Peter Parker is still a teenager, you know? That’s a very tender balance to figure out. It’s very specific what we’re trying to achieve in terms of body type and the feeling of that. Rest assured, there’s a lot of people helping me with that because I have no discipline in that respect. My father’s a swimming coach and I kind of rebelled against that very early on. Any kind of exercise routine has to be cracked with a pretty firm whip.”
