W Journal does an annual “Nice Performances” difficulty yearly for the awards season. They do a number of covers, editorials and interviews with among the yr’s hottest skills. This yr’s difficulty is… okay. I loved wanting on the pictures – you’ll be able to see all the things right here – however the interviews are, for probably the most half, fairly boring and never notable. Aside from Andrew Garfield. Garfield is at present selling Hacksaw Ridge (directed by Mel Gibson) and Silence (directed by Martin Scorsese). What’s bizarre is that Hacksaw Ridge is getting extra love than Silence, however that’s a dialog for an additional time. Garfield has at all times struck me as a morose, critical, nearly depressive man. He comes throughout that approach in interviews lots of the time. However in W Magazine, he truly advised a very shaggy dog story of the time he bought super-high at Disneyland for his 29th birthday.
W: What was your favourite birthday?
AG: My 29th birthday, weirdly. It was excellent. It was heaven. I used to be with my favourite folks on the planet, eight of my closest buddies. And, um, I’m simply gonna let you know this straight up. They got here out to L.A. to shock me and we went to Disneyland and we ate pot brownies. And it was actually heaven.
Did you go on the teacups?
How about Area Mountain thrice in a row. I freaked out on It’s a Small World. I used to be like, “it’s – it’s a f–king small world – it’s a f–king – it’s a very f–king small world guys, is anybody else seeing how small it’s?” Superb. Superb.
Did the track begin to make you are feeling insane, as nicely?
Yeah. There was a second the place me and my buddies discovered ourselves strolling Fantasy Land, and there was a track that was taking part in popping out of the timber and we have been all doing this dancing by and I believe at one level all of us began wanting round going, “Why are all of us doing the identical dance, how did this occur?” And we had this lady known as Chantelle – God bless you, Chantelle, wherever you’re. I believe she was that harmless and pure of coronary heart that she had no concept that we have been on medicine. She was identical to, “You guys are nice, I want all of my guides have been such as you.” It was wild. It was among the finest days of my life. It actually was.
It sounds fabulous. And did you find yourself crashing on the Disney Lodge otherwise you all went residence?
No, we went again to my home and simply type of talked about insane that day was, as a result of we have been all having our personal experiences, and I believe all of us got here again and have been like, “Have been you pondering this at…” after which all of us realized we have been pondering so most of the identical issues – stoned conversations.
Did everybody freak out on Small World?
I don’t know if everybody did. I positively did. I believe everybody had a special freak out at a special place…. I believe I nearly purchased a Chewbacca backpack, as nicely, I used to be that stoned. I believed it was a good suggestion to get a type of backpacks which are the form of Chewbacca, so it’s just like the again of Chewbacca’s head, and his arms are like over my shoulder and his legs are round my waist. On reflection, I ought to have truly simply bought it. It was an excellent backpack. It was actually cute.
I’m not a giant drug consumer, although, I simply wish to say that. I take advantage of it extra for like ritual functions. I’m not like a leisure [user], I’m accountable with medicine. Any younger folks watching, don’t maintain it flippantly, as a result of it may possibly actually be a foul factor. It may be very unhealthy. Simply respect it, respect your self. And test in with your self about it. You realize your limits, don’t go loopy on it. I have to say that. As a result of that’s a enjoyable drug story, and Invoice Hicks can be pleased with me.
That is charming story. I’d have thought that Garfield can be a paranoid stoner, like he would freak out over all the things. However I assume it’s completely different today, when you will get excessive and go to Disneyland and nobody blinks an eye fixed. Personally, going to Disneyland excessive appears like hell, however I’m not a rollercoaster individual (I’m a giant ol’ queasy scaredy cat). However going to a water park whereas excessive? I’d be so into that. I’d get a lifetime go to that.
