When you look at the hugely talented and very successful Hollywood actor Andrew Garfield, you would find it hard to believe that he had some regular run ins with a school bully when he was a lot younger. Andrew now plays the role of a Marvel comic book superhero in the form of Peter Parker aka Spider-Man in the hit The Amazing Spider-Man movie franchise.
Andrew Garfield says he was bullied
However, while Andrew Garfield does admit that he had the occasional run in with one mean bully in particular, he has admitted that it was because of this bully that he ultimately landed his role as Spider-Man in The Amazing Spider-Man movie franchise. Andrew says that he found Spider-Man because he was looking for a way of getting away from the bully and found himself imagining Spider-Man coming to his aid.
Garfield told the Observer Magazine, "I didn't have this really abusive experience. I had the general bullying experience where there was a kid who wasn't very happy and he threw his weight around. He targeted me because I was skinny and thin-skinned and he knew it. It is really interesting, though, what you perceive as your wounds can later turn into the biggest gifts you have. At the time, I was like, 'Man, I've got to toughen up, get a thicker skin,' whereas in fact, being sensitive and thin-skinned and all the things I still am, lends itself to a career as an actor. Also, if it weren't for that bully, I wouldn't have found Spider-Man. That's why I got so lost in the comics and the cartoon series. I would fantasise about him coming to beat the c**p out of my bully."
