Andrew Garfield is opening up about his thoughts on reprising his role in the new Marvel blockbuster Spiderman: No Way Home. The Social Network actor recently teamed up with his predecessor Tobey Maguire and the newest kid on the block Tom Holland, for the latest edition of the Spiderman franchise. 

While on the Graham Norton Show the actor shared, via ET Canada, "It was a stupid thing to do and a really scary thing to attempt especially in the costume – a 38-year-old should not be in Spandex! I’m far too old to be playing Spider-Man but they asked me back, which was the sweetest thing ever." Garfield also revealed his initial reaction to being nominated for an Oscar with his performance in Tick, Tick… BOOM!, "When they announced it, I thought, ‘Gosh, this would be nice if it happened and I kind of owned it for the first time in my life.’"

The Mainstream actor went on and added, "You get to a certain age, and you think you would like it to happen. I do care, and it’s wonderful, really, really lovely." Garfield also talked about his love for the character Jonathan Larson in the critically acclaimed film and shared, "What I love about it is that he wrote it to reclaim his artistry and calling. If he hadn’t carried on in the face of rejection and failure, he would have left the world so much less rich, and I find that deeply moving." Fans are eagerly waiting for Garfield to win his first Academy Award and will be sitting at the edge of their seats while watching Oscars 2022 on March 28.

My husband and I have been married for over 10 years. We met when I was 18 and he was 21. We’ve been through a lot emotionally together. There were several HUGE fights and painful situations in our marriage, but we always seemed to come out stronger on the other side. Out of the blue my husband just sprung the divorce talk on me, I was totally depressed until I found the Dr.Todd website online and I ordered a Love spell. You won’t believe my husband called me at the exact time this spell caster finished his spell work in 24hours. I was totally amazed! He is wonderful and his spells work so fast.
