It turns out that even Spider-Man has to deal with certain pressures in society these days.
Actor Andrew Garfield, 39, admitted to struggling with the “societal obligation” of becoming a father by age 40.
The Brit said it was tough for him to accept that his life was going in a “different path” which meant that his later mother Lynn didn’t get a chance to become a grandmother before her death in 2019.
“Releasing myself from the societal obligation of procreating by the time I’m 40 has been an interesting thing to do with myself,” he told British GQ. “Where do I start with why it didn’t happen?”
“It’s more about accepting a different path than what was kind of expected of me from birth. Like by this time you will have done this, and you will have at least one child – that kind of thing,” he went on.
“I think I have some guilt around that. And obviously, it’s easier for me as a man,” he added.
Though the actor remained tight-lipped about his current relationship status, it’s reported that he’s rekindled his romance with ex-girlfriend Alyssa Miller after their split earlier this year.
The Oscar-nominated “Tick, Tick… Boom!” star and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model were first spotted together in November 2021, before briefly splitting.
Garfield has previously dated several women in Hollywood, including “Spider-Man” co-star Emma Stone, and singer Rita Ora.
