Andrew Garfield has some pretty deep thoughts when it comes to celebrity and feeling accepted in today’s society.
“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,” the 99 Homes star told New York magazine. “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.”
Garfield admitted that his rise to fame and experience as Spider-Man intensified his feelings about the public’s praise of celebrities. “I’m still f–ked up in my own ways, and insecure, and scared, and don’t really know who I am,” he said. “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.”
