Andrew Garfield lands in some bad books!
Andrew Garfield was at the panel discussion for the project. He told the audience that he was preparing for his new role by watching every series of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’. Gay Times has reported that Andrew Garfield said:
“My only time off during rehearsals – every Sunday I would have eight friends over and we would just watch Ru. This is my life outside of this play. I am a gay man right now just without the physical act – that’s all.”
The viewers felt that Andrew Garfield had been insensitive and inconsiderate to the struggles and history of gay people. He had mentioned earlier that he is straight and not gay. He went on to say:
“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, but right now I’m secluded to my area, which is wonderful as well.”
Explaining the reason of his coming on the project, Andrew said:
“I don’t think it can get better than this in terms of everything. Communion with the audience – us all going through the same things together and how prevalent and how necessary it is to tell this story right now.”
