Amazing Spider-Man star a little sad after role

Lamenting the realities of corporate America.

Andrew Garfield, who starred as Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel, recently discussed his experience starring as the web-slinging hero, saying it left him “heartbroken a little.”

In Variety‘s latest “Actors on Actors” interview, conducted by Amy Adams, Garfield lamented the unfortunate realities of corporate America, something he struggled with when striving to do the story and character of Spider-Man justice.

“I was still young enough to struggle with the value system, I suppose, of corporate America really, it’s a corporate enterprise mostly,” he said, noting that after working on both films, he learned that serving the story and character unfortunately aren’t always the number one priority.

“I found that really, really tricky. I signed up to serve the story, and to serve this incredible character that I’ve been dressing as since I was three, and then it gets compromised and it breaks your heart,” he added.

Tom Holland has since become the new face of Peter Parker. In addition to being quite pleased with the casting choice of Holland, Garfield said he’s “really excited to just be a fan again as opposed to bearing the weight of it.”
