Andrew Garfield Announces That He’s Taking A Break From Acting


Recently actor Andrew Garfield has received some renewed interest in his career after he returned as his version of the web slinging super hero in Spider-Man: No Way Home this past December. Ever since The Amazing Spider-Man 2 his career seemingly dipped with films like Hacksaw Ridge in 2016 and Tick, Tick… Boom! in 2021 being his most notable roles since then.

Recently many fans have been expressing their interest in seeing him return as his unique version of Peter Parker in a third Amazing Spider-Man film since his version’s story was never finished. In addition fans have also been demanding a follow-up to the Toby Maguire’s Spider-Man films as well.

Fans of the actor have also been wondering what other roles he may be taking on, including rumors of him playing Milo Thatch in a live action remake of Disney’s Atlantis: The Lost Empire. But it appears that we will have to wait a little while before seeing him on the big screen once more.

During a recent interview while promoting his new mini-series Under the Banner of Heaven the actor expressed his desire to take a break from actor for a little while. He stated:

I’m going to rest for a little bit. I need to recalibrate and reconsider what I want to do next and who I want to be and just be a bit of a person for awhile. Because as you know, that is a washing machine, that awards season. I need to just be a bit ordinary for a while.

Oddly enough his No Way Home co-star Tom Holland also recently announced that he was taking a break from acting; Citing that he wanted to start a family with his current girlfriend Zendaya.

Hopefully Andrew Garfield is able to find what he needs to be happy. We all look forward to seeing him return in whatever role he wishes to pursue next.
