• Andrew Garfield lied about his appearance in “Spider-Man: No Way Home” for two years
  • The actor felt great when he managed to keep his casting a secret from the world
  • Garfield only told three people about his involvement in the blockbuster movie

Andrew Garfield “felt great” when he had to lie about his casting for “Spider-Man: No Way Home.”

The 38-year-old Hollywood actor dropped by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Monday to talk about his participation in the new “Spider-Man” movie, which is still raking in big bucks at the box office six weeks after its premiere.

Garfield admitted to talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres that it felt good when he lied to the world about his role in the film.

“I lied to people for a good two years, and I lied to the internet for two years and it felt great,” the actor was quoted as saying by Entertainment Weekly during the interview.

Garfield went on to share that even though his appearance in the flick was supposed to be a secret, he couldn’t help but disclose it to three people that deserved to know he was back to wearing the iconic red and blue spandex costume again.

“My dad, my brother, and my mother…just kind of us. It was fun to keep it a secret. It felt like I was organizing a surprise birthday party for a bunch of people who I knew would appreciate it,” he added.

The “Social Network” star was so determined to keep his role in Marvel’s latest blockbuster a secret that he decided not to tell his “Amazing Spider-Man” costar and ex-girlfriend Emma Stone about it.

“Emma kept on texting me, and she was like, ‘Are you in this new Spider-Man film?’ And I was like, ‘I don’t know what you’re talking about.’ She was like, ‘Shut up, just tell me.’ I was like, ‘I honestly don’t even know what you’re…’ I kept it cone [of silence] even with her, it was hilarious,” Garfield said on the “Happy, Sad Confused” podcast.

When “Spider-Man: No Way Home” was officially released last month, fans were delighted to see Garfield and Tobey Maguire, who played Spider-Man from 2002-2007, team up with Tom Holland for the big screen adventure, as per Entertainment Tonight.

The movie is now on track to beat “Avatar’s” record and become the third-highest-grossing film of all time in the U.S. and Canada after securing another $14.1 million in its sixth weekend. Worldwide, the webslinger has already raked in a total of $721.5 million.
