The Hollywood Reporter: Actor Roundtable

Six contenders — also including Mahershala Ali, Andrew Garfield, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Dev Patel — on what it takes to play a real-life person, making a drug dealer likable, turning down parts and the agony of acting: “The very thing you love is the thing you hate.”

Halfway through this year’s Actor Roundtable, just as THR’s group was settling in with one another, Casey Affleck paused to look at Jeff Bridges with something bordering on awe. “Jeff,” he said, “not to draw attention to your age or anything, but I just want to point out that when I was born in 1975, you had already worked with Peter Bogdanovich, John Huston and Robert Benton.”
“Yeah,” Bridges shrugged.

“So you were bushed before I was born, man,” said Affleck.

That gives some idea of the warmth that flowed among the group, one of THR’s younger-skewing actor gatherings, with Bridges, 67 (Hell or High Water), playing patriarch to Affleck, 41 (Manchester by the Sea); Mahershala Ali, 42 (Moonlight); Andrew Garfield, 33 (Hacksaw Ridge, Silence); Joseph Gordon-Levitt, 35 (Snowden); and Dev Patel, 26 (Lion).

Many confessed to being nervous, especially beside the elder statesman. But Bridges surprised them at the Nov. 12 shoot in Hollywood by admitting he was jittery, too ­— and that after all these years, he still feels fear when he takes on a role.

What do you most like about acting and what do you like the least?

Andrew Garfield: I just like knowing everything I can. I love the fact that I get to train for a year as a Jesuit priest and then train to be a cop and learn how to make a rocking chair. I want to know everything about everything, and that’s not possible and it won’t be possible. I’m not ever going to reach it. Neil Young has a recurring dream where he has the perfect melody — and he wakes up every time and can’t remember it. And that’s what it is for me. There’s something to aspire to always, there’s somewhere further to go. And the thing that I hate about acting is — well, everything I just said. (Laughter.) The longing is so f—ing painful sometimes.

Andrew for Vogue December Issue

Andrew is on an article on Vogue December issue and we’ve got a new interview. Check out the picture featured and the article below.

Hanging up his Spider-Man spandex, Andrew Garf?eld reveals new depths playing heroic men of faith in Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge and Martin Scorsese’s Silence.

Behind the mask of every movie superhero you’ll find a serious actor yearning to peel it off. Although Andrew Garfield was a very good Spider-Man and Spider-Man was very good to him—making him world-famous and, as they say, bankable—the 33-year-old Londoner happily abandoned the red-and-blue spandex in search of something more satisfying. “There was something that made me go, I want to be training in a different way now,” he tells me over bites of curry at Café Gratitude in Venice, California. “I want to play at the feet of the masters.”

He got his wish, with starring roles in two of the holiday season’s most ambitious films. In Mel Gibson’s epic war movie Hacksaw Ridge, Garfield gives a stirring, bighearted turn as the real-life Desmond T. Doss, a country-boy Seventh-day Adventist who, though a committed pacifist and vegetarian, serves as an army medic during World War II. “He’s like Ferdinand the Bull, in that old Disney cartoon: The matador is trying to show him the red flag, and Ferdinand is just sniffing the flowers,” says Garfield. In Silence, Martin Scorsese’s meticulous adaptation of Shusaku Endo’s classic novel about Jesuit priests in a hostile seventeenth-century Japan, Garfield plays Father Sebastião Rodrigues, a Portuguese Jesuit who, along with a comrade (Adam Driver), faces torture, death, and a crisis of faith as they search for their missing mentor (Liam Neeson). It takes us back to a time when Catholic saints were, Garfield says, “the Kanye Wests of their day.”

Mr Porter Interview and Photoshoot

In this week’s issue of The Journal (Mr Porter), Andrew Garfield was interviewed and photographed. Check the pictures in our gallery and the interview right below.

Andrew Garfield is sitting on the rooftop of a Hollywood photo studio, collapsing into giggles. I have dared to suggest that the star of The Amazing Spider-Man franchise – LA-born, London-raised – has done rather well for himself.

“I don’t know about thriving,” he says. “It depends what you mean by thriving.” Well, blessed, perhaps? While he was appearing opposite the late Mr Philip Seymour Hoffman in Death Of A Salesman on Broadway in 2012 (to rapturous reviews), he made a shortlist of five directors he’d drop everything to work with, including Messrs Mel Gibson and Martin Scorsese. And guess what? Both came through.

I’m still winded from Mr Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge, in which Mr Garfield plays real-life US War hero, Corporal Desmond Doss, who was awarded the Medal of Honor for his services in the Battle of Okinawa, 1945. It’s a role no one else could have done better, a signature blend of ludic vulnerability and stubborn resilience. Mr Garfield is also about to grace our screens in Mr Scorsese’s Silence, starring alongside Messrs Liam Neeson and Adam Driver, as a Portuguese priest in 17th-century Japan.

“The best moment of my life was kick-flipping down the Southbank stairs”

Still, he blows a raspberry when I say the word “Oscar”. “Argh. You know, it’s funny, isn’t it? I’ve just ordered this book called The New Better Off: Reinventing The American Dream. It goes right back to everything we see around us now and how sick and empty and false and foundationless it is. And how it mostly creates misery for everyone involved, even those who have it.” He includes himself in this, clearly. “Hmm, thriving is an interesting word. I’m not sure if I am.”
