Garfield further explained his decision, stating that it is very important right now, especially after a lot of output, a lot of being out in the world, and giving a lot of energy to things that he is very passionate about, but he has to kind of refill the well so that he can carry on authentically carry on without it feeling like the actor have to keep up with the Joneses in some way.
Andrew Garfield also admitted how he was heavily inspired by Simone Biles as he believed she dared to say that she was not going to do that vault and not going to endanger herself if she vaults today. The actor finds that an incredible example. He also mentions artist Kendrick Lamar who hasn’t put out an album in a while, and while the actor is aware that Lamar has one coming out in the middle of May, which he is so excited for.
