Spider-Man's' Andrew Garfield feels like 'a kid in my pajamas'
There is zero production going on during the Christmas to New Year's holiday, but one highly anticipated movie finally got off the ground before the break, Marc Webb's "Spider-Man." The new Peter Parker, Andrew Garfield gave an update on the proceedings to hometown newspaper The Guardian and it appears he's having a great time.
"We started shooting two weeks ago and then we have Christmas off," Garfield said, "Then we're back into it for, gosh, a fair bit of time... I'm going to have to hibernate into this character for at least four or five months... I feel like a kid in my pyjamas. I can only say how it feels and it feels pretty special. It feels like a dream realized and a fantasy realized. Again, I don't take it lightly and I feel incredibly lucky that I get to wear spandex for the next couple of months."
Moreover, it appears, based on the following quote on Garfield's lack of exercise regimine, that Peter Parker will still be in High School when this version of "Spider-Man" begins.
"I think Spider-Man needs strength, but Peter Parker is still a teenager, you know? That's a very tender balance to figure out. It's very specific what we're trying to achieve in terms of body type and the feeling of that. Rest assured, there's a lot of people helping me with that because I have no discipline in that respect. My father's a swimming coach and I kind of rebelled against that very early on. Any kind of exercise routine has to be cracked with a pretty firm whip."
You'll have to wait a while to check out Garfield's Wall Crawler, however. "Spider-Man" opens July 4, 2012.
