Andrew Garfield On Being Spider-Man: 'Like A Dream Realized'

Ever wonder what it would feel like to play Spider-Man in a multi-million dollar movie adaptation? Apparently, the answer is both embarrassing and exciting if new Peter Parker Andrew Garfield is to be believed.

Garfield told The Guardian newspaper that trying on the costume for the first time made him "feel like a kid in my pajamas," but quickly added, "I can only say how it feels and it feels pretty special. It feels like a dream realized and a fantasy realized... I don't take it lightly and I feel incredibly lucky that I get to wear spandex for the next few months." He went on to talk about how he's approaching the role's physicality:

I think Spider-Man needs strength, but Peter Parker is still a teenager, you know? That's a very tender balance to figure out. It's very specific what we're trying to achieve in terms of body type and the feeling of that. Rest assured, there's a lot of people who are helping me with it because I have no discipline in that respect. My father's a swimming coach and I kind of rebelled against that very, very early on so any form of physical discipline has to be really cracked with a really smart whip.

The new Spider-Man movie begand shooting earlier this month, and continues into the New Year.
