Andrew Garfield ‘bothered by the misconception’ surrounding method acting

Acting styles have always divided Hollywood. Several stars have recently spoken out against the move, with David Harbour calling the approach absurd. Jon Bernthal says he sees no point in acting legally, and Mads Mikkelsen calls it a “buzzword.” But Andrew Garfield, actor in films such as Hacksaw Ridge, The Social Network, and The Amazing Spider-Man, believes the hatred is a misunderstanding.

Speaking on his WTF podcast with Marc Maron, Garfield revealed the stark casting process for the 2016 film Silence, in which the actor played a 17th-century Jesuit priest. “People do this kind of thing all the time,” he told Maron, “To be.” An asshole to everyone on set.” It doesn’t.”

“I’m kind of bothered by the misconception, I’m kind of bothered by this idea that ‘method acting is f*****g bulls**t.’ People are still acting in that way, and it’s not about being an asshole to everyone on set. It’s actually about living truthfully under imagined circumstances, being really nice to the crew simultaneously, being a normal human being, and being able to drop it when you need to and staying in it when you want to stay in it.”

Compared to some Hollywood stars, Garfield’s experience is different. But he assures fans he has total respect for his co-stars while filming.

During an interview with Garfield on the WTF podcast, the actor delves into the steps he took to bring his character to Silence. Garfield claims he was “single for six months” when he was hungry for a role. He says the adventure was fascinating, providing some “wonderful experiences.”

“I had an incredibly spiritual experience. I did a bunch of spiritual practices every day, and I created new rituals for myself. I was celibate for six months, fasting a lot because Adam and I had to lose weight anyway. It was very cool, man. I had some pretty wild, trippy experiences from starving myself of sex and food at that time.”

Few actors are willing to do what Garfield did to land a role in Hush. But when actors want to immerse themselves in their work thoroughly, this may be the best way. Garfield claims this doesn’t seem an issue in the industry as long as actors treat film crews with respect and kindness.
