While promoting his new movie 99 Homes, Andrew Garfield snapped during an interview with NY Magazine's Vulture. He said (unprecedented ?) "Why the fuck am I doing this ? Coming in today to do interviews, I’m like, ‘Why?’ I know that I’m an actor and it's part of the job, and I feel lucky I get to do that, but with the interviews, it’s such a weird thing. What do I have to say?"
The interviewer then went on to ask questions about the movie to which Garfield replied: "It’s so heavy even talking about it. Hearing you talk, I just suddenly feel like my head is wrapped in cellophane. How do we wake up, how do I wake up? What do I do? Because I can stand here and be like, ’We need to fucking do shit.' I can say that. But if I’m not doing anything, what the fuckk am I really doing?"
When Buchanan said "Art is a part of it. Art can make people see things in a different way than an editorial in a newspaper." Garfield replied with “Why don’t you just do this interview? You’re saying the right shit."
He went on to say his Spiderman role and the fame that came with it changed things for him: "It’s like, 'Oh, fuck, my life is now great!' But in fact, I’m still fucked up in my own ways, and insecure, and scared, and don’t really know who I am. Celebrity is the new religion, as far as I can see, along with money, power, status. It’s all the same umbrella — the seductive forces of evil, really.... That’s right. I struggle with this question every day. Who am I? Do I have anything to say?"
