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!

Andrew Garfield Says Spider-Man Was His Favorite Superhero

Andrew Garfield continues to open up about the disappointment he had in his Spider-Man films.

The 33-year-old actor admits that he idolized the superhero as a kid.

Spider-Man was my favorite superhero, my first superhero costume when I was a 3-year-old at Halloween,” Andrew told THR.

He added about the movies, “I was like, there’s millions of young people watching who are hungry for someone to say, ‘You’re OK. You’re seen very deeply.’ And more often than not the opportunity is not taken, and it is absolutely devastating and heartbreaking because there is so much medicine that could be delivered through those films.”

Andrew Garfield Was 'Heartbroken' By His 'Spider-Man' Movies

Andrew Garfield has revealed that he was disappointed by his Spider-Man movies and was left “heartbroken” when he felt the story had been compromised.

The 33-year-old actor played the webslinger in two films and he opened up about working on the films in a new Variety Actors on Actors interview with Amy Adams.

“I’m loath to judge that experience and paint it as a whole. But there were great things about it. I got to work with incredible actors and a really great director,” Andrew said. “There’s something about being that young in that kind of machinery that I think is really dangerous. I wasn’t a teenager, but I was still young enough to struggle with the value system, I suppose, of corporate America.”

“There’s something that happened with that experience for me where story and character were not actually top of the priority list, ultimately. And I found that really, really tricky,” he added. “I signed up to serve the story and to serve this incredible character I’d been dressing as since I was 3. And then it gets compromised, and it breaks my heart. I got heartbroken a little bit.”

Amy added her own insight from the Superman movies. “That’s the tricky thing with Lois Lane that I find. I love playing her, I love everyone I work with, but sometimes it’s tricky because I feel she’s in service of the story instead of the story serving a character. I’ve signed on to things for one reason, and they’ve turned into something else, and it’s always a little heartbreaking, because you have to let go of that ideal,” she said.
