Andrew Garfield a 'gay man right now' sans 'the physical act'

In what's turning out to be a big week for straight actors who play gay characters saying some dumb shit and getting roasted for it, ex-Spider-Man Andrew Garfield is now copping a rinsing for some poorly chosen words in a recent interview. "I am a gay man right now, just without the physical act, that's all".

"Maybe I'll have an awakening later in my life, which I'm sure will be wonderful and I'll get to explore that part of the garden", Andrew said.

He added: "I adore it, but a big concern was what right do I have to play this wonderful gay role?.It was about doing honour, doing justice".

"I had to trust that it was the right thing and Tony [Kushner, writer of Angels in America] had asked me and maybe if he'd asked me, it was the right thing".

In his new play, Andrew plays a gay character diagnosed with AIDS and admitted that watching Drag Race helped prepare him for his role. I mean every series.

Writers for the Huffington Post note that the English performer and lead of The Amazing Spider-Man movies, 33, made the surprising "admission" during a recent panel discussion of Angels in America, the Tony Kuscher-directed play themed around the early days of the AIDS epidemic that's now being revived in London. "This is my life outside of this play", he said.

Andrew Garfield, who recently opened up about his sexuality during an "Angels in America" post-show talkback, jokingly seems to think so.

"It's the most costly thing on the body and on the soul we've ever done personally... and I will say it's the most fulfilling creative experience I'll ever hope to have".

Another person wrote on Twitter, "So Andrew Garfield wants to claim the gay label based on stereotypes while actual gay actors fear the consequences of coming out".
