According to Andrew Garfield, he feels “some shame” for not getting married and starting a family before reaching 40.
You can start anytime
The Spider-Man actor recently admitted to GQ that, despite his earlier expectations, his job has prevented him from becoming the first person in his group of friends to “have kids and settle down.”
Garfield continued by saying that it had been “interesting” to be free of the “societal obligation of procreating” by the time he reached his fourth decade.
The actor, who will turn 40 next year, explained to the tabloid why things didn’t turn out that way by saying: “Oh, God. How do I explain why it didn’t occur? No, it’s more about embracing a route that is different from what was essentially required of me from birth.
Such as, “By this time, you will have accomplished this, and you will have at least one child”; statements of that nature. I believe I am guilty in relation to that. And obviously, being a man makes it easier for me.
In other parts of the interview, Garfield admitted he wishes his mother, who passed away in 2019, could have met any future children, but claimed she is still with him “in spirit.”
He observed, “Life seems to be a constant practice of letting shit go.” “Losing an idea of how something should appear, function, or feel. And if I’m going to have children, it goes without saying that I would have wanted for my mother to have met my children. She will, too. in spirit She will attend it. For all the major ones, I am certain she is present.
When talking about his late mother, Garfield has already been commended for his ‘beautiful’ handling of sadness.
When questioned about his mother’s passing during an interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in November of last year, the actor briefly broke down in tears before responding, “I enjoy talking about it, so if I cry it’s just a great thing.
We never have enough time with one other, so this is all the unspoken love that will stay with us till we pass away. Whether a person lives to be 60, 15, or 99.
“I’m hoping this grief sticks with me because it’s all the unspoken love I wanted to tell her every day but was unable to. She was the best of us, we all told her.
