Andrew Garfield might be a big movie star but he doesn’t feel that he matches up to his brother.
The actor, who stars in the Amazing Spider-Man films, can relate to the superhero’s quieter alter ego Peter Parker due to his own insecurities.
‘Peter is like Spider-Man’s little brother,’ says Andrew, 30.
‘He’s in the shadow of Spider-Man, who gets all the power and attention, and gets to live out his fantasy life.
‘I can identify with Peter Parker because I always felt in the shadow of my older brother.
‘I’m a mess. I’m oversensitive. I’m stupid. I make mistakes all the time. My older brother is perfect and it irritates the hell out of me.’
Andrew doesn’t think that what he does for a living can compare to his brother’s serious job.
‘I wouldn’t say he is superhuman, he can’t climb walls and swing through New York City,’ Emma Stone’s man tells Notebook.
‘But he can save lives because he is a doctor. So I am screwed.’
