Andrew Garfield Defines His Religion as 'Mostly Confused'

Andrew Garfield is opening up about his spiritual beliefs.

In his latest film Silence, the 33-year-old actor and his co-star Adam Driver play Jesuit priests who face violence and persecution when they travel to Japan to locate their mentor and propagate Christianity in the seventeenth century.

In real life, however, Andrew says he can’t put a single label on his faith.

“I’m not a Christian person,” Andrew told The Hollywood Reporter. “I consider myself pantheist, agnostic, occasionally atheist, and a little bit Jewish, but mostly confused.”

“It was a year that I spent with this one particular Jesuit priest, Father James Martin, who was a consultant on the film and has become a dear friend and my spiritual director in a very surreal way,” Andrew added. “It’s the thing that transcends simply making a film.”

Pictured: Andrew and Adam at a special screening and Q&A for Silence presented by Paramount Pictures and the Film Foundation at the Regency Village Theatre on Sunday (December 4) in Los Angeles. Also in attendance was their co-star Issey Ogata and director Martin Scorsese.

Silence hits limited theaters on December 23 and opens nationwide in January – watch the latest trailer here!
