Andrew Garfield explains why playing Spider-Man broke his heart and sadly, we get it

Need another reason to love The Amazing Spider-Man actor? Actor, Andrew Garfield explains why playing Spider-Man broke his heart and his honesty is beyond refreshing.

In an interview with Variety’s “Actors on Actors” segment, Amy Adams talked with Garfield and things got really interesting when the subject of The Amazing Spider-Man came up. The 33-year-old actor got real about his intense and heartbreaking role and man, we love him even more for it.

"There's something about being that young in that kind of machinery which I think is really dangerous," Garfield told Adams about the two Spider-Man films. "I was still young enough to struggle with the value system, I suppose, of corporate America really, it’s a corporate enterprise mostly."


Garfield continued saying that his journey as Spider-Man taught him that a story and a character are not always “top of the priority list” to everyone, which is why he was conflicted with the result.

"I found that really, really tricky. I signed up to serve the story, and to serve this incredible character that I've been dressing as since I was three, and then it gets compromised and it breaks your heart," Garfield explained."

"I got heartbroken a little bit to a certain degree," he added.

Poor Peter Parker, his life isn’t as perfect as we thought, even though he was a superhero!
