“Spider-Man” star Andrew Garfield says he struggles to find a balance when it comes to his life and the fame that comes as an actor.
In an Interview with New York magazine, the British actor said he wants to make a difference in the world though it may sound cheesy. “My priority is the work, and the work is dependent on people not knowing very much about me. So where’s the balance? Where’s the line that I have to walk, and we all have to walk?
Because I do want to make a difference in the world, I really do, and that’s a really cheesy thing to want,” the actor said.
Garfield said that he feels that he’s “not accepted” in today’s culture which makes you feel inadequate. “We’re only accepted if we are… well, name it. White,
handsome, charming, charismatic, thin-enough eyebrows to be beautiful, but thick enough to still be masculine. We are told constantly we’re not enough, we’re told constantly we don’t have enough, we’re told constantly that we’ll never be enough.”
The 32-year-old actor said he has his own set of problems and feels ” insecure, and scared, and don’t really know who I am.”
“Celebrity is the new religion, as far as I can see, along with money, power, status. It’s all the same umbrella—the seductive forces of evil, really.”
