Since The Social Network came out, I’ve kind of resented everyone saying how much I look like Andrew Garfield. I took it as my personal mission to dislike everything he did as a protest. But how can I? He’s so just damn charming.
Last week Andy showed up at the San Diego Comic Con dressed up and pretending to a Spider-Man superfan before revealing his true British speaking polite self. He gave an earnest speech saying,
“I needed Spidey in my life when I was a kid and he gave me hope. In every comic I read he was living out my and every skinny boy’s fantasy of being stronger, of being free of the body I was born into, and that swinging sensation of flight.”
Dammit Garfield. How can I dislike you after that? I admit it now. I will be in line to see The Amazing Spider-Man.
P.S. I will also be at SDCC next year. Wait for it.
