Andrew Garfield Gets Heated During Interview: 'Why the F--- Am I Doing This?'
"Hearing you talk, I just suddenly feel like my head is wrapped in cellophane," the British actor told Vulture.
It wasn’t a good day for Andrew Garfield to be interviewed.
With a newly released project, promotion comes with the job. But the 32-year-old actor may have had enough with speaking to the press about his film 99 Homes.
“Why the f— am I doing this?” Garfield told Vulture‘s Kyle Buchanan.
More tempermental one-liners included Garfield stating: “Hearing you talk, I just suddenly feel like my head is wrapped in cellophane” and “Why don’t you just do this interview? You’re saying the right s–.”
While 99 Homes was the topic at hand, Garfield preferred to provide commentary on celebrity culture and fame.
“Something shifted with the Spider-Man stuff,” the boyfriend of Emma Stone explained about the moment he knew he had made it big.
“It was a character that I wanted to play my whole life and not one part of me was indifferent… but I got incredibly uncomfortable with the attention that just came with that job.”
Adding: “It’s like, ‘Oh, f—, my life is now great!’ But in fact, I’m still f—-ed 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.”
In 99 Homes, Garfield plays a single father who struggles to get back the family home after being evicted amid the housing crisis.
