Andrew Garfield Gushes Over His 'Cheesy' Dream Role of Being 'a Father'

Andrew Garfield has 29 acting credits under his belt but the one role he’s hoping for hasn’t come his way yet.

The 35-year-old actor opened up about his dream role during a Thursday Q&A on IMDb while promoting his new film Under the Silver Lake.

A fan asked Garfield what his dream role was, prompting the actor to say, “This is such a cheesy response: to be a father.”

Smiling and slightly blushing he continued, “My dream role is to be a father to a child, in real life not just in fictional films.”

Garfield has previously explored feelings of fatherhood in his 2014 film 99 Homes in which he played a single dad who loses his home to foreclosure.

In a September 2015, the actor told Entertainment Tonight the role made him aware of his fatherly instincts.

“I’ve always had them somewhere. I think all men do and all women have that motherly instinct, and it was exciting to explore that and daunting and scary,” he said at the time.

He continued, “I kind of thought, ‘Well, how do I do that? If I haven’t experienced it, can I do it?’ but then I realized that’s the situation of every single father in the history of time. Everybody who becomes a father has never been a father before, so we’re all going into this initiations totally blind and groping in the dark so I kind of went with that feeling of not knowing what the hell I was doing and it kind of helped.”

Garfield sparked dating rumors in March after being seen with the actress Aisling Bea at a Hamilton show in West London by a fan.

Rumors of a relationship came after Garfield’s split from singer Rita Ora, according to multiple reports. He also famously dated Emma Stone. The pair ended their four-year on-off relationship in 2015.
