In response to actors and fans labeling method acting “bullshit,” Andrew Garfield has taken a stance.
Actors like Brian Cox and Mads Mikkelsen have blasted those utilizing the approach over the past year for upsetting their cast mates and crew personnel.
At the time, the main topics of conversation were Lady Gaga, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Jared Leto.
On the “WTF with Marc Maron” podcast , Garfield said that he believes that actors have a “misconception” about what method acting entails.
It’s not about treating everyone on set like an a-hole, he insisted. Being a regular person, being able to drop it when necessary, and staying in it when you want to stay in it are all that are required to live honestly under hypothetical conditions and treat the crew with kindness at the same time.
He went on: “This misperception bothers me a little bit. This notion that “method acting is fucking nonsense” bothers me somewhat If you’re referring to method acting as bullshit, then I don’t believe you understand what it is. Or perhaps you recently collaborated with a method actor who wasn’t really using the technique.”
In order to prepare for his role as a Jesuit priest in “Silence,” Garfield stated he fasted for six months and practiced method acting.
He added regarding method acting, “And it’s also very private.” “I’m thinking about hiding my toilet’s pipes since I don’t want anyone to see them. They should not be able to observe how I make the sausage.”
“I’m only concerned with what he does to himself. I’m concerned about the hardships kid has as he gets ready “said Cox.
