'Better known as Eduardo Saverin in The Social Network alongside Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield is the new Spiderman....He said the character saved his life: "It was a symbol of what got me through tough times in terms of being a skinny kid." He was bullied "because I was very confused when I first went to school, and there was a kid who was just mean and I just didn't understand it, and right into my teenage years, where I would be mugged on the street, or when I was 17 or 18 and I was in drama school..."
The interviewer writes, "Garfield confesses that he has always been an over-sensitive soul... He found validation in acting, but the oversensitivity was still there."
