If you thought Tobey Maguire bulked up to become Spider-Man, then you haven’t seen Andrew Garfield’s Amazing Adonis version of the comic book superhero.
The very humble Andrew told Ellen that he wasn’t wearing anything underneath the very skin-tight costume, and that when papparazzi sneaked on set to take photos, he got a little self-conscious. (No sex please, we’re British?)
Said Andrew: “It was an acting exercise… Knowing that your keister has been shot from many different angles makes you very uncomfortable.”
But if it’s bulge and butt you’re looking for in the 3-D film, don’t get ahead of yourself. Garfield told Entertainment Weekly last year that the costume was fitted to be not-so-crotch-revealing, and perhaps in post-production they will darken that area, as they do in many of the following promo shots. The Amazing Spider-Man hits theaters July 3rd.
