Garfield: I'm constantly inspired by her work
Andrew Garfield – who split from the La La Land actress in 2015 – insists he’s very happy about her ongoing success. Despite their breakup, the two have remained close friends and he considers himself her “biggest fan.”
And the 33-year-old actor couldn’t help but give Emma a standing ovation as she collected her Golden Globe award earlier this month. He shared on Vanity Fair’s Little Gold Men podcast: “I’m her biggest fan as an artist. I’m constantly inspired by her work. I’m constantly inspired by how she handles and holds herself.
So, for me it’s been bliss to be able to watch her success and watch her bloom into the actress she is.”
Moreover, the actor confessed there is still a strong bond between them, albeit a friendly one.
“We care about each other so much, and that’s a given, that’s kind of this unconditional thing.
There’s so much love between us and so much respect … It’s also been wonderful to have that kind of support for each other. It’s nothing but a beautiful thing,” he added.
During the Golden Globes ceremony, Andrew realized he was one of few “authentic Hollywood friends” and insists this is rare in the industry.
He explained: “[At the Globes] I was overwhelmed that I had such sincere, authentic Hollywood friends. Which I don’t think is a common occurrence. I had about seven or eight real, true anchors in that room and in the parties following. Emma of course is one, Claire Foy is another, Laura Dern. Eddie Redmayne, Jonah Hill . . . these are people that I actually love in a real, sincere way, and I believe they love me back. I was just struck with this deep gratitude.”
