Andrew Garfield announces that he is temporarily retiring from acting


Andrew Garfield is right now on the crest of the wave. His role in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ brought him redemption as Peter Parker and renewed love from fans. Also, thanks to ‘Tick, Tick… Boom!’ he got his second Oscar nomination for Best Actor, after ‘Until the Last Man’. Together with these two films, last year she released another, ‘The Eyes of Tammy Faye’, which earned her partner Jessica Chastain the Oscar for Best Actress.

Garfield will play Pyre, a Mormon detective who must investigate the brutal murder of his mother and her daughter by followers of his own church.

“I’m going to get some rest,” Garfield said in an interview with Variety. “I need to recalibrate and reconsider what I want to do now and who I want to be, and be a bit of a normal person. Because, as you know, awards season is kind of a reset.” The actor doesn’t complain about the recognition but wants to “be a normal person for a while.”

Garfield has also talked about the shoot and how it helped them release tension on such a serious production. “I think it was very necessary for us to have games at night and get into nature and, you know, walk, swim, dive, dance and eat good food to come back to work stronger. We have to take care of ourselves in order to take care of history “, He explained during the interview.
