Andrew Garfield Talks Upcoming Presidential Election: 'There is Great Healing that Needs to Happen'

Andrew Garfield gets a workout in while filming for his upcoming movie Under the Silver Lake on Saturday (November 5) in Los Angeles.

The 33-year-old American-British actor will star in the modern noir crime thriller, set for release in 2017.

Andrew recently opened up about politics and the upcoming U.S. presidential election.

“Both England and America are going through a similar thing – there’s a tremendous chasm between all of us,” Andrew told Time magazine. “Whether you’re Republican or Democrat, whether you’re a [Donald] Trump supporter or a [Hillary] Clinton supporter, whether you’re black or white, old or young, what’s clear is that there is great healing that needs to happen.”

“It’s not going to be done by pointing fingers and ostracizing and judging the opposing viewpoint,” he went on. “It’s only going to happen through compassion and empathy. I’m looking for leaders who walk that walk, as opposed to calling the opposition crazy or imprisonable. I love that idea that if you know someone’s story, it’s impossible not to love them. This is potentially hokey but incredibly true, as far as I’m concerned.”

“I don’t see a lot of healthy, mature discussion happening on the debate stage right now,” Andrew added. “But my longing is for Hillary to win. That’s for sure.
