What a difference having a box-office hit like the Spider-Man re-boot can make to the general disposition of an otherwise recently unknown up-and-comer like Andrew Garfield. Seriously y’all. On one of the first exterior day-shoots, of on-location filming for the highly anticipated follow up to the hugely successful The Amazing Spider-Man, in the Meat Packing district of NYC, Garfield played the evasive and stand-offish star to little end. Some would say even going as far as working overtime to keep from, not only interaction with fans but photographers alike – all of whom were anxious to get an opportunity of catching a glimpse and/or shooting the first look of the new costume debut in the current production.
(See our collection of Garfield photos after the jump…)
One veteran pap summed the phenom with a few choice words, saying that back on “the first Spidey – [Garfield] was giving it away to anyone who would glance his way, but now he’s gone Hollywood!”
Ain’t that something?
We couldn’t fair any better with our own words so we will leave it at that. But we can certainly attest to his overall about-face with the public and photogs alike having had the opportunity of covering the 1st installment which also filmed throughout NYC a few years ago. (The pics below don’t lie!)
