The 'Tick, Tick... Boom!' actor admits he even had to lie to his ex-girlfriend and 'The Amazing Spider-Man' co-star about his involvement in 'Spider-Man: No Way Home'.

AceShowbiz - Andrew Garfield kept his lips sealed about his role in "Spider-Man: No Way Home". Despite the endless speculation about his return as Spider-Man in the Tom Holland-starring movie, the "Tick, Tickā€¦ Boom!" star never told anyone about it, not even her ex-girlfriend Emma Stone.

Appearing in the latest episode of Josh Horowitz's "Happy Sad Confused" podcast, the British actor revealed Stone, whom he dated after they met on the set of "The Amazing Spider-Man", kept on texting him about whether the rumors of his involvement in the new film were true. "Emma kept on texting me. She was like, 'Are you in this new Spider-Man film?' " he recalled.

"And I was like, 'I don't know what you're talking about,' " the Golden Globe winner admitted. He continued while laughing, "She was like, 'Shut up. Just tell me.' I'm like, 'I honestly don't know' - I kept it going, even with her."

After Stone watched "No Way Home" and found out the truth, she was understandably upset with her former boyfriend. Garfield shared, "And then she saw it. She was like, 'You're a jerk.' "

Garfield had numerous times denied that he would reprise his role as Spider-Man in "No Way Home" before it hit theaters. "I heard about it. And I did see it. And it's a Photoshop," he said on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" in September 2021 after a leaked photo showed him wearing a Spidey suit again.

He further explained his position with the project, "I think that Tom Holland is just the perfect Peter Parker and Spider-Man, so I am super stoked. I get to just be a fan again, which is my preferred position. To be able to sit in the audience and kind of go, 'Yeah, you screwed up, mate. You didn't do it as well as you could have done, eh?' I get to be that guy that's just like, 'Yeah, I don't really love the suit.' "

In a recent interview with TheWrap, the 38-year-old actor admitted it was "stressful" to lie to the media. He said, "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."

"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 SAG Award nominee continued explaining. "And I kept imagining myself purely as a fan of that character, which is not hard to do."
