Wellington: Andrew Garfield, who stars in the new Spider-Man movie, said that getting into his skin tight costume itself was his biggest challenge in the film.
The 28-year-old actor revealed the pains of starring as a superhero in tight leotards for the highly anticipated flick ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’.
“It’s made of something that is designed to make you irritated,” Stuff.co.nz quoted him as telling talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.
“I don’t know what that material name is but that’s the description underneath,” he said.
Garfield said that he had to work out like a “crazy person” to fit into the suit and needed help getting into shape.
“It was a life change,” he said of the strict exercise regime.
“I get frustrated with those Men’s Health magazines. It’s like in five minutes you’ll be as fit as a fiddle if you just follow those three simple steps and only eat cucumbers but this was hard work.
“I wouldn’t be able to do it without someone,” he added.
The ‘Social Network’ star went on to say he felt naked in the suit as he wore nothing underneath. Garfield joked he was also worried the suit was too tight.
“Knowing that your keaster is being shot from many different angles is uncomfortable,” he said.
