Andrew Garfield recalls ‘starving himself for sex and food’ for priesthood in 2016

Andrew Garfield took to the field for methodical acting, which was heavily criticized later in the year, when recalling himself “starving” for sex and food while playing a priest.

Experts from Mads Mikkelsen to Robert Pattinson have decried the technique of treating actors living like their fictional characters even when not filming.

“There [have] I think there’s a lot of misconceptions about what method acting is,” Garfield on the popular WTF podcast with Marc Maron.

“People are still acting that way, and it’s not about being an asshole to everyone on set. It’s really just being real in imaginary circumstances, while being nice to the crew, and being a normal human being, and being able to drop it off when you need it and stay when you want to stay. “

In a recent interview with The Independent, Dopesick star Will Poulter said that “acting methods shouldn’t be used as an excuse for inappropriate behavior – and certainly are.”

Garfield, however, says this is a “misconception” about art.

“I’m a bit bothered by the idea that ‘the method of acting like a bull ***.’ No, I don’t think you know any method acting if you call it crap, or you’ve just worked with someone who claims to be a method actor who really doesn’t act at all.” Garfield said.

“It’s also very private. I don’t want people to see the plumbing in my toilet. I don’t want them to see how I make sausages.”

Recalling his own experience with methodical acting, Garfield talks about training to play a 17th-century Jesuit priest for Martin Scorcese’s 2016 film, Silence.

“I did a bunch of spiritual practices every day, I created new rituals, I was celibate for six months, and I fasted a lot,” says Garfield.

“It was great, man,” he continued. “I had some pretty wild, petty experiences starving sex and food at the time.”

Garfield’s latest project, Under the Banner of Heaven, is out now on Disney+. Andrew Garfield recalls ‘starving himself for sex and food’ for priesthood in 2016
