London: Andrew Garfield, who played a superhero in the blockbuster ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’, has revealed that his high-profile role has left him feeling disillusioned.

The 28-year-old Brit, previously best known for ‘The Social Network’ says that he dreams of returning to “simpler times” of “struggling... auditioning and getting turned down and wondering if I’m ever going to get another job.”

The actor also said that the role made him lose “a bit of innocence” as well.

“To achieve what you set out to achieve and realise it’s not what you want, it’s disappointing,” the Mirror quoted him as telling the Radio Times.

“This role had been something I’d always, always wanted to do. Then you realise it’s like any other acting job.

“Some days it’s great, others you feel lost. And I’d always felt that if I got certain roles then I’d be set for life, emotionally, professionally. It would be Utopia.

“But you never get to Utopia,” he said.

“The dream has become reality,” he added.
