Andrew Garfield is best known for playing Peter Parker, a.k.a. Spider-Man, in the two Amazing Spider-Man movies and Spider-Man: No Way Home a year ago. Additionally, he made appearances in the movies Tick, Tickā€¦ Boom!, Hacksaw Ridge, and The Social Network. His first project with Martin Scorsese was Silence, which is regarded as the first part that made him known to reviewers as a “serious actor.”

With his 2016 Martin Scorsese picture Silence, Andrew Garfield made his method acting debut. Andrew played a Jesuit missionary in the movie, and to fully inhabit the part, he engaged in some extreme rituals, including a six-month period of celibacy and prolonged fasting until he started to lose weight, among others. In a recent interview, the actor also defended his procedure.

Andrew recently revealed on the WTF with Marc Maron podcast that he would deprive himself of food and sex for extended periods of time in order to prepare for the role. “Man, it was very great. Because I was depriving myself of sex and food at the time, I had some fairly bizarre, surreal experiences, he said.

The actor defended method acting as well, claiming that it is frequently misinterpreted. “People are still acting that way, and it’s not just to be a jerk to everyone on set,” the person said. Being a normal person, being able to drop it when necessary, and staying in it when you want to stay in it are basically the only requirements for living honestly under hypothetical conditions, he continued.
