I’m scared and insecure: Andrew Garfield

The actor also said that he feels that he’s “not accepted” in today’s culture
Andrew Garfield opened up about why he’s struggling to find a balance between letting fans in on his personal life and maintaining some semblance of privacy in an interview with New York magazine.
“My priority is the work, and the work is dependent on people not knowing very much about me. So where’s the balance? Where’s the line that I have to walk, and we all have to walk? Because I do want to make a difference in the world, I really do, and that’s a really cheesy thing to want,” Andrew said.
The actor also said that he feels that he’s “not accepted” in today’s culture. “We’re only accepted if we are… well, name it. White… handsome, charming, charismatic, thin-enough eyebrows to be beautiful, but thick enough to still be masculine,” he said.
“We are told constantly we’re not enough, we’re told constantly we don’t have enough, we’re told constantly that we’ll never be enough,” he added.
Andrew said the success of Spider-Man only furthered his criticism over society’s praise of celebrities. “I’m still f**ked up in my own ways, and insecure, and scared, and don’t really know who I am. Celebrity is the new religion, as far as I can see, along with money, power, status. It’s all the same umbrella — the seductive forces of evil, really.”
