After multiple major roles, Garfield is glad to get some downtime.

Following his major roles in smash-hit films like Spider-Man: No Way Home, The Eyes of Tammy Faye, and Tick, Tick … Boom!, Andrew Garfield is a little worn out. As such, he has decided to take some time off from the acting scene and spend some time being with friends, indulge in hobbies, and just generally be a normal person.

“I’m actually really happy and excited to be very quiet and very still and take some time to just be,” Garfield told People Magazine. “It feels very important right now, especially after a lot of output, a lot of being out in the world, and giving a lot of energy to things that I’m very passionate about, but I have to kind of refill the well so that I can carry on authentically carry on without it feeling like I have to keep up with the Joneses in some way.”

“Like it’s so tempting to live in that way of just always onto the next thing. But actually, and I know it’s a privilege that I get to even consider that, to actually take time.”

Garfield hasn’t specified exactly how long his break will be, as he’s more focused on just dialing back the action and energy and living in the present.

“I hope that I can go on vacation. It’s more just, even getting on a plane right now feels like too much. I kind of want to lay down and just think and not think and watch other people’s work and just be really, really, really kind of… and listen to music and be with friends and eat burgers, you know, just kind of be a person.”
