Andrew Garfield initially had doubts about his award-winning film The Social Network, the star has revealed.
The British actor has landed a Bafta nomination for best supporting actor for his role in the film, about the beginnings of Facebook.
But Andrew, 27, told the Daily Telegraph he initially had reservations, saying: “When I first heard about it I was confused like most people. It doesn’t conjure images of an exciting film when you hear the words ‘Facebook movie’.
“But then as soon as I knew who had written the script (West Wing scribe Aaron Sorkin) I thought, well, there must be something in it, and I was of course proved right upon reading it.”
The actor, who was born in Los Angeles but raised in Surrey, is about to take on the coveted role of Spider-Man.
He said: “I feel the pressure of my own inner four-year-old and that’s the biggest pressure I could ever come up against.
“I don’t need anyone else to tell me what a big deal it is because I’m Spider-Man’s biggest fan.”
