'My dream role is to be a father to a child, in real life, not just in fictional films,' the 'Hacksaw Ridge' actor says during a question and answer session with fans.

AceShowbiz - Actor Andrew Garfield is desperate to become a real-life father.

The "Hacksaw Ridge" star previously played a single dad onscreen in 2014 movie "99 Homes" and taking on that role made him realise just how much he wanted to start a family of his own.

The 35-year-old shared his "dream" gig as part of a question and answer session with fans on, confessing his response was rather "cheesy."

"My dream role is to be a father to a child, in real life, not just in fictional films," he smiled.

Andrew, who was most recently linked to actress Aisling Bea, went on to discuss his approach to relationships.

"I do believe in love at first sight but I also believe that you would love absolutely anybody if you knew their story," he shared.

And the actor insists he's not necessarily interested in the traditional family set-up: "I believe that the modern notion of romantic love is seriously misguided and it creates a lot of problems in our modern world," Andrew said.

"I believe that we need to reevaluate this idea that we have of the nuclear family, this idea that we have of two-point-four children, this idea we have that it's Adam and Eve and not Adam and Steve."

He added, "I believe it's possible for all of us to be in love all the time with ourselves and everyone around us."

It's not the first time Andrew has addressed his willingness to accept love in whatever form it may enter his life.

Last year (18), he opened up about his sexuality in a candid interview with OUT magazine, as he promoted his play "Angels in America", in which he played gay character Prior Walter.

"Up until this point, I've only been sexually attracted to women," he explained. "My stance toward life, though, is that I always try to surrender to the mystery of not being in charge. I think most people - we're intrinsically trying to control our experience here, and manage it, and put walls around what we are and who we are."

"I want to know as much of the garden as possible before I pass - I have an openness to any impulses that may arise within me at any time."

Prior to stepping out in London with Bea in March, Andrew enjoyed a brief romance with pop star Rita Ora.

He also dated actress Susie Abromeit, and found love with his "The Amazing Spider-Man" co-star Emma Stone in 2011 before their split in 2015.
