Andrew Garfield Says He's Gay 'Just Without the Physical Act'

Andrew Garfield just came out as gay – kind of.

During a recent panel discussion for his new London-based play Angels in America, the 33-year-old actor said that he considers himself a “gay man right now just without the physical act.”

“My only time off during rehearsals – every Sunday I would have eight friends over and we would just watch Ru,” Andrew said in reference to RuPaul’s Drag Race via the Gay Times. “This is my life outside of this play. I am a gay man right now just without the physical act – that’s all.”

In his new play, Andrew plays a gay character diagnosed with AIDS and admitted that watching Drag Race helped prepare him for his role.

Andrew went on to admit that “as far as I know, I am not a gay man,” but did say that he is open to the possibility of being a same-sex relationship in the future.

“Maybe I’ll have an awakening later in my life, which I’m sure will be wonderful and I’ll get to explore that part of the garden,” Andrew said. “But right now I’m secluded to my area, which is wonderful as well.”

    Uh, tone & context is important. Here’s the audio. He said this tongue in cheek. He wasn’t being serious

    Thanks for the link! At first I was like “Wait, what?!” haha

    He’s mocking homosexuality

    So, too gay to function.

  • Betafish

    yeah, I kind of think that too. Not sure what he’s really talking about actually bc he’s all over the place but it just rubs me like an insult.

    How brave of him

  • Basil Faulty

    What a disgrace

  • RT59103

    Listen to the audio posted above. He sounds all over the place bc sites are cherry picking his comments and rearranging them like JJ did for maximum outrage. If you listen, you’ll see he gave respectful answer and the RuPaul comment at the end was totally tongue in cheek. Geez

  • RT59103

    Lazy journalism and click bait at its best. No one bothers checking the original audio and just reposts other sites stupid outrage articles.

  • LittlePaperStars

    Taken totally out of context just to inflame hatred against him and get a reaction. It was during a panel for a play he’s doing where he’s playing a gay man. It was tongue in cheek and talking about embodying a character. It’s people kicking up a fuss of nothing. There are also at least two openly gay men in the cast and they don’t seem offended by his comments

    Hey it’s only okay when Janice says it!

    I guess he forgot his media training for a day but under any context not advisable to give reporters this kind of soundbite.

  • Repete

    I think he wasn’t serious, just joking

  • alex

    I mean, emma stone kewn this thing?

  • KwaneYarnell

    I have nothing against Garfield. I have enjoyed his wonderful work in various movies, but isn’t his assertion akin to saying “I am President now even though I have never been elected?”

    Staying on the subject of lies and Presidents, with the advent of Trump and his unending litany of lies, ‘Conservative Truthiness’ has overwhelmed actual truth.
    So tell me another lie and call it the truth, KellyAnne ConJob.

    Meanwhile, Mister Garfield, you go ahead and say ANYTHING your heart desires. You will still be more honest than the scumbag at Pennsylvania 1600.
