Andrew Garfield Says There's 'No Humanity' in Politics Right Now

Andrew Garield smoulders on the cover of the latest issue of Variety alongside Angels in America playwright Tony Kushner.

Here’s what the 34-year-old star of the upcoming Broadway play told the mag:

Andrew on spirituality: “I’m interested in the timeless. I think without a spiritual dimension, life becomes meaningless — and I use ‘spiritual’ in a very general sense. I think it’s a spiritual practice to believe humans are more decent than they are not. That feels like it’s very faith-based. Hope is a spiritual exercise.”

Andrew on politics: “Every week there’s going to be people coming into the theater with new rage…There’s no humanity in politics right now, especially on the right. It’s evident we’re in trouble. There need to be new laws. There needs to be a new regime created. There’s this extremism on all sides right now, and I think what Tony gives us at the end of this play is a balanced vision of a future that’s led by deep listening, compassion, community, empathy and awareness of our interconnectedness. And I guess, ultimately, love.”

Andrew on working on a marathon play: “There’s something about the exhaustion. It’s like doing a sweat lodge. Because it’s 7 1⁄2 hours, you never have a great show. We all come o at the end of a two-show day and go, ‘It was f–king great, and it was fucking awful.’ But as soon as I start to feel sorry for myself that I’ve been given this duty of attempting to make sense of this play and give it to people, I immediately get knocked sideways. I go, ‘Shut the fuck up. This is such a privilege to honor the souls that didn’t make it through and to honor the souls that did.”

Andrew Garfield Gushes About His 'Transformational' Broadway Play 'Angels in America'!

Andrew Garfield gushed all about the 25th anniversary Broadway return of Angles in America while making an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday (February 8) in New York City.

“On stage it’s transformational, it changes the actors and it changes the audience. It feels like you go through this big transformation all together. It’s a big play,” the 34-year-old actor told Jimmy.

“It’s like bingeing a Netflix series live with Nathan Lane for crying out loud, playing Roy Cohn – one of Donald Trump‘s mentors,” Andrew continued. “I hope never to work as hard as this ever again in my life. I don’t think it could get harder. Simultaneously it could never get any more rewarding because the story itself is so hard to sum up.”

“It’s about an imagined future,” Andrew described. “He’s trying to help us imagine a better future of community and of needing each other. Where values like empathy, love, compassion and an awake-ness to the fact that if I hurt you, I’m hurting myself and If I love you, I’m loving myself. You’re the other me. All the old, natrual impulses that we have as human beings that are being very threatened right now with all the threats of democracy. It’s about democracy, it’s about equality, race, spirituality, sexuality, living without shame as you are, and about loving each other and needing each other to hold each other up. Come and get inspired and be transformed by this incredible play.”

Andrew Garfield Opens Up About His Relationship With Drugs

Andrew Garfield is on the cover of ES Magazine‘s Theatre Awards issue, out on newsstands on Thursday (December 14).

Here’s what the 34-year-old actor had to say:

On his relationship with drugs: “Drugs…the word has such a stigma. I can only really take substances if it’s a ritual. I mean, weed, I can smoke because it’s just nice. But with hallucinogens, I have to do it in a very conscious way in a place where I feel free and safe and can have a freak out if I want to. I want to be able to express my insights.”

On finding most social situations overwhelming: “I find it pretty overwhelming being in any social situation that involves more than five people, to be honest. But outside of my closest friends and family, the theatre world is the place where I feel I most belong. It’s the most welcoming community that I’ve ever experienced.”

On kissing British actor and Les Blancs star Danny Sapani‘s feet:Danny Sapani was the anchor of this piece, this powerhouse of a black British actor, dignity personified. It’s all about white colonialism and how Africa has been deeply wounded by us. Afterwards, I said to Danny: ‘I know this is really weird and pretentious, but humour me. I have this impulse to kneel in front of you and kiss your feet and say I’m sorry. Can I just do that, as a ritual?’ He was like: ‘Yeah, do it.’ It wasn’t bulls***. It was a sincere impulse. That’s theatre. If the work is deep enough and the writer has transformed themselves through the writing, then they’ve got medicine for you to make your own transformation.”
