AceShowbiz - Andrew Garfield has opened up about how it felt to lie about his role in "Spider-Man: No Way Home". Although it was "stressful" to lie to the media, the Peter Parker depicter admitted that he had fun doing it.
"The Amazing Spider-Man" actor made the confession in a new interview with The Wrap. "It was stressful, I'm not gonna lie. It was rather stressful but also weirdly enjoyable. It was like this massive game of Werewolf that I was playing with journalists and with people guessing, and it was very fun," he said.
"There were moments where I was like, 'God, I hate lying.' I don't like to lie and I'm not a good liar, but I kept framing it as a game," the 38-year-old continued explaining. "And I kept imagining myself purely as a fan of that character, which is not hard to do."
Andrew went on to note, "I placed myself in that position of, well, what would I want to know? Would I want to be toyed with? Would I want to be lied to? Would I want to be kept on my toes guessing?" He added, "Would I want to discover it when I went to the theatre? Would I want to be guessing, guessing, guessing?"
"I would want the actor to do an incredibly good job at convincing me he wasn't in it. And then I would want to lose my mind in the theatre when my instinct was proven right," the British-American star concluded. "That's what I would want."
Andrew had repeatedly denied rumors suggesting that he's featured in the Tom Holland-starring movie. "I'm not in the film. I love Spider-Man, I always have, I was so happy to have played the part. I'm so excited to see what they do with the third one," he said when speaking on "Today" back in November 2021.
"Spider-Man: No Way Home" introduces the multiverse storyline, which opens the door for Andrew and Tobey Maguire's returns as their own versions of Spider-Man. The film, which also stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Zendaya Coleman and Alfred Molina among others, has out-grossed "Titanic" domestically by bringing $668 million so far.
