Andrew Garfield says he is trying to live his life as openly as possible, including when it comes to his sexuality.
During a recent interview with Out magazine, the “Angels in America” actor said that while he currently identifies as a heterosexual man, he is not shutting out the possibility of being attracted to men in the future.
He said, "Up until this point, I've only been sexually attracted to women. My stance toward life, though, is that I always try to surrender to the mystery of not being in charge. I think most people – we're intrinsically trying to control our experience here, and manage it, and put walls around what we are and who we are.
"I want to know as much of the garden as possible before I pass – I have an openness to any impulses that may arise within me at any time. But, if I were to identify, I would identify as heterosexual, and being someone who identifies that way, and who’s taking on this seminal role, my scariest thought was, 'Am I allowed to do this?'"
Last summer, the "Amazing Spiderman" actor made headlines after said that he was a "gay man … just without the physical act." Garfield was criticized for the remark, and accused of pandering to gay male stereotypes.
