Andrew Garfield is “concerned about the misunderstanding” regarding method acting

Andrew Garfield says he’s “troubled by the misunderstanding” surrounding method acting and said the process is about “truly living”.

The Spider-Man actor, 39, said those who claimed the practice was “bullshit” didn’t know what it was and said he’s had “wild, trippy experiences” while preparing for roles .

Speaking to Marc Maron’s WTF podcast, he said: “There have been a lot of misconceptions about what method acting is.

“People still act like that, and it’s not about being an asshole to everyone on set.

I’m kind of troubled by the misconception, I’m kind of troubled by this idea that “method acting is shitty bullshit”.Andrew Garfield

“It’s really just about living truthfully in imagined circumstances and at the same time being really nice to the crew and being a normal person and being able to drop it when you need to and stay in it when you want to stay.

He continued, “I kind of resent the misconception, I resent this idea that ‘method acting is fucking bullshit.’

“I don’t think you know what method acting is if you call it bullshit or have just worked with someone who claims to be a method actor but actually doesn’t act the method at all.

“It’s also very private, I think the process … I don’t want people to see the pipes of my toilet how the sausage is made.”

Speaking about his preparations for his role in Martin Scorsese’s 2016 film Silence, he revealed that he had fasted and abstained from sex for a period of six months.

“It was very cool, man,” he said.

“I’ve had some pretty wild, trippy experiences starving myself for sex and food for that time.”
