Tobey Maguire interviews Andrew Garfield in the new issue of VMan, and it is super cute. Says Peter Parker the Elder of Garfield’s franchise debut in The Amazing Spider-Man: “Actually, when it was coming together, I was particularly excited at two moments: One was when [director] Marc Webb got involved. I think he’s an interesting and cool choice. And then I was certainly curious as to who was going to play Peter Parker. When I heard it was you, I was literally like, Fucking perfect!” You will not be surprised to learn that the eternally self-effacing Garfield collapses into a black hole of bashfulness at that endorsement. In fact, he tells Maguire that he was so obsessed with the first Spider-Man movie when he watched it as a teenager (subtle neg, Garfield, we’re on to you) that he used to practice lines from it with a friend who told him, “‘You could never be fucking Spider-Man.’ I was so humiliated and upset. But, um … fuck you, Terry!” Boys will be boys!
