Andrew Garfield says he even lied to Emma Stone about being in 'Spider-Man: No Way Home'
Andrew Garfieldsaid he told no one about being in "Spider-Man: No Way Home," including Emma Stone.
- Stone played Gwen Stacy opposite Garfield in "The Amazing Spider-Man" movies.
Andrew Garfield said on the "Happy Sad Confused" podcast that he lied to his "Amazing Spider-Man" co-star Emma Stone when she asked him whether he made a cameo in "Spider-Man: No Way Home."
For months, Garfield, who played Spider-Man in "The Amazing Spider-Man" movies, had denied his involvement in the latest Marvel movie for months even after photos and videos of him on the movie's set were leaked.
The truth was finally revealed when the movie came out and audiences saw both Garfield and Tobey Maguire, who played Spider-Man in Sam Raimi's original "Spider-Man" trilogy, reprising their roles.
During his appearance on the "Happy Sad Confused" podcast hosted by Josh Horowitz, Garfield explained the lengths he went to keep his role a secret including lying to Stone, who played his girlfriend Mary Jane in "The Amazing Spider-Man" movies and was his real girlfriend between 2011 and 2015.
"Emma kept on texting and she was like, 'Are you in this new 'Spider-Man' film?'" Garfield told Horowitz when asked if he had told Stone or "The Amazing Spider-Man" director Marc Webb. "And I was like, 'I don't know what you're talking about.' She was like, 'Shut up. Just tell me.' And I'm like, 'I honestly don't know.' I kept it going even with her. It's hilarious."
When asked if he eventually told Stone the truth, Garfield said: "No, and then she saw it. She was like, 'You're a jerk.' I didn't want to tell anyone. I took it super seriously. I told no one."
The "tick, tick...BOOM!" star recently told The Wrap that it was "weirdly enjoyable" lying about his "No Way Home" role.
Garfield said: "It was rather stressful but also weirdly enjoyable. It was like this massive game of Werewolf that I was playing with journalists and with people guessing, and it was very fun."
Werewolf is a party game where members of the group are chosen to be werewolves and must hide that identity whilst eliminating the rest of the group.
Garfield also told Variety that the scene where he saves MJ (Zendaya) persuaded him to reprise his role in "No Way Home." The scene mirrored a similar scene in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" where Spider-Man's girlfriend Gwen Stacy (Stone) dies after Spider-Man (Garfield) fails to catch her.
"I will say the image of my catching [Zendaya's] MJ — that was really beautiful and it kind of sold me on the whole thing," Garfield said. "You know, the spirit that Zendaya brings to MJ is so heartfelt and pure and loving, and Emma brought that similar unique spirit to Gwen."
