Andrew Garfield: Playing Spidey is an honor

Some boys dream of becoming astronauts or leading their country, but actor Andrew Garfield just wanted to slip into some Spandex. Now, he's finally getting his wish as the title character in the upcoming "Spider-Man" reboot.

The British star, who wore his first Spidey costume for Halloween at age 4, tells The Hollywood Reporter, "I have been waiting for this phone call for 24 years, for someone to call me up and say, 'Hey, we want you to pretend to be a character that you’ve always wanted to be all your life, and we’re going to do it with cool cameras and cool effects and you’re going to feel like you’re swinging through New York City.

Says the celebutante turned designer, "Now I just look really weird having 'virgin' written across my wrist – and I have to explain it."
