Andrew Garfield on His Tony Nomination, ‘Spider-Man’ and Wanting to Buy His Spidey Outfit

Andrew-Garfield-SpidermanAndrew Garfield, who just finished his Tony nominated run on Broadway in Death of a Salesman, recently spoke to The Los Angeles Times about his nomination and gearing up for the release of his new movie, The Amazing Spider-Man

The actor admitted, “It’s an honor to be included.  But I get so nervous and anxious at these things that I actually become ill.”

Garfield has been learning a lot while playing Biff in the Arthur Miller play.  He said, “There is something in this play that doesn’t allow you to feel truthful unless you are literally baring every aspect of your soul.”  In fact, the actor is also open about his early aspirations.  He said, “I never wanted to be an actor, I wanted to be the next Muggsy [a basketball player from the ‘80s and ‘90s.]  I was skinny and short.  I’m no longer short [6-foot-1.]  But I’m still skinny.  I’m OK with that now.  But I struggled with it.  It’s very weird to beat yourself up for being born in the wrong body.”

The 28-year-old knew that no matter his career choice, he would always be someone with some inner turmoil. Garfield said, “I am neurotic that way.  I know myself pretty well, why I am the way I am comes very, very easily.  That can be both a gift and a curse because you can tend to over-analyze.”

Even with a bright future ahead, Garfield is still planning wisely.  He said he wants to buy one of his Spider-man suits, which costs about $20,000.  The Brit said, “It’s an investment.  So that when I’m broke—after they fire me from the second Spider-man movie—I’ll be able to sell it to fund my heroin habit.”

The Amazing Spider-Man comes out July 3, and the Tony Awards air June 10 on CBS.
