Andrew Garfield Lied To Emma Stone About Spider-Man: No Way HomeAlamy

Andrew Garfield had a lot of fun lying to us all about his involvement in Spider-Man: No Way Home, but it wasn’t just fans he kept in the dark.

The Tick, Tick…Boom! actor has revealed that he was so committed to preventing any spoilers from getting out that he even lied to his own Spider-Man co-star, Emma Stone, about his involvement.

During an appearance on the Happy, Sad, Confused podcast, Garfield was asked to what extent he’d kept his former co-stars in the loop about the multiverse, and could barely contain his glee when confirming he’d kept them in the dark.

‘Emma kept texting me, like, ‘are you in this new Spider-Man film?’, and I was like, ‘I don’t know what you’re talking about,’ he revealed before breaking into laughter.

‘You’re even stonewalling Emma?’, host Josh Horowitz said in disbelief, with Garfield explaining, ‘I kept it going even with her.’

Stone starred as Gwen Stacy during Garfield’s two-film spell as Peter Parker, and while the tragic ending to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 eliminated the possibility of her making an appearance in No Way Home, Gwen Stacy still plays a key role in the movie’s climax, with Garfield’s Spider-Man diving to save MJ in a scene that fans immediately connected with his failure to save Gwen in his own universe.

According to Garfield, the Oscar-winner only discovered she’d been lied to by him when she went to see the movie herself, revealing that she’d messaged him afterwards to tell him ‘you’re a jerk’.

Marvel actors have frequently spoken out about the stress of trying to avoid giving away spoilers, yet despite having spent months having to evade questions about his rumoured appearance in No Way Home, it seems like Garfield found the entire experience pretty fun.

In an interview after he was finally able to speak out about his involvement, Garfield described keeping up the act as ‘weirdly enjoyable’, likening it to a ‘massive game of werewolf’.

‘It was very fun,’ he told The Wrap. ‘There were moments where I was like, ‘God, I hate lying’. I don’t like to lie and I’m not a good liar, but I kept framing it as a game. And I kept imagining myself purely as a fan of that character, which is not hard to do.’
