Andrew Garfield's quotes

  • I'm very neurotic and self-conscious. So I think that I'll know when I'm becoming a dick and believing my own press.
  • I hope that I have to audition for every single job I want. I hope that I'm always struggling, really. You develop when you're struggling. When you're struggling, you get stronger.
  • I think too much. Being in my body is much more satisfying than being in my head.
  • [on Hollywood parties/events] - Those events that look like so much fun in the photos you see-it's mostly people looking over their shoulders at everyone. They're miserable, those parties.
  • I hope this period doesn't end. I hope I never blow up. I hope that I have to audition for every single job I want. I hope that I'm always struggling, really. You develop when you're struggling. When you're struggling, you get stronger.
  • [on where his guilt complex comes from] Being Jewish and, yes, I'm sure it stems from being privileged. I was brought up in a middle class home. I went to private school. And I was always very aware of me not earning that.
  • Whenever I'm not on stage I wanna watch reality television... I wanna watch, like, The Voice or The Bachelor... Don't be surprised by that -- it's the greatest show on TV!
  • Spider-Man is neurotic. Peter Parker is not a simple dude. He can't just switch off... He never feels like he's doing enough. And Peter suffers from self-doubt. He ums and ahs about his future because he's neurotic. He's Jewish. It's a defining feature.
  • [on the The Amazing Spider-Man 2] I read a lot of the reactions from people and I had to stop because I could feel I was getting away from how I actually felt about it.
  • [on working with Mel Gibson] He's incredibly instinctive and emotional - all blood and guts, nerve endings, viscera and muscle. Simultaneously, he's got a tremendous intellect.
  • Hopefully we're dying on the cross every day and being resurrected in a truer way every day. That's the idea for me - the old self being shed in order for the truer self to emerge.
  • As far as I know, I'm not a gay man. Maybe I'll have an awakening later in my life, which I'm sure will be wonderful and I'll get to explore that part of the garden. But right now I'm secluded to my area, which is wonderful as well. I adore it.
  • I've been a smoker on and off since I was a teenager, but it did hit a heavy dose when I was doing this film [99 Homes]. But I don't have all that addictive of a personality, so I knew I'd be able to kick it very, very quickly afterwards.
  • [on whether he feels more American or British] I identify more as Jewish than anything... I have a love-hate relationship with both countries and used to be very proud to have both passports. Today, I'm slightly less proud.
  • I love that idea that if you know someone's story, it's impossible not to love them. This is potentially hokey but incredibly true, as far as I'm concerned.
  • That's all I want, to keep losing myself.
  • I feel incredibly awkward as a human being and incredibly teenaged still.
  • I've realised that at the top of the mountain, there's another mountain.
