Andrew Garfield Hilariously Calls Out Spider-Man Co-Star Tom Holland Over Fake Butt Claim

A little more than two months after Tom Holland revealed that one of his Spider-Man co-stars supposedly sported a fake butt in his suit, Andrew Garfield has entered the chat.

Watch: Andrew Garfield RETIRING From Acting?!

Andrew Garfield certainly knows how to be cheeky.
In case you missed it: Back in early February, Spider-Man: No Way Home co-star Tom Holland revealed that at least one of his predecessors in the latest installment (either Andrew or Tobey Maguire) may have sported a little extra cushion in his Spidey suit. Now, Andrew is stepping in to help dismantle to the web of theories on who it actually was.
"He's just stirring the pot—old Tom, he can't help himself," Andrew said during his April 28 appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers. "You know, there's an expression that we have in entertainment, which is, ‘We want to put bums on seats.' You know, we want to get the audience sat and paying their tickets."
And according to Andrew, his co-star knows how to get his audience's attention very well. "Tom is pretty great at creating subgenres of games for you all," the actor added. "While you're in the cinema going, ‘Well that butt doesn't look real. Tobey's looks like it might be real. Could Andrew have that much ass? Maybe, potentially.'"

But not to worry, Andrew does help to narrow down the ass-umption: "All I know is that I am totally unmodified and that's all I can share," he shared, adding that ultimately, his fellow co-star is "very good at marketing."

Earlier this year, Tom had fans Spidey senses tingling everywhere when he quipped about his co-stars possibly having padding when they filmed the 2021 movie. "I remember being on set and being like, Wow," he told Seth Meyers during his February appearance on the late-night show. "Oh, hang on a minute. Nah, that's not real."
And just two days later, in what seemed like a dose of added fun, Tom shared a behind-the-scenes photo of all three actors on set recreating the infamous Spider-Man meme (where multiple Spider-Mans are pointing at each other). Coincidence? Probably not.

We'll just leave this claim for the Daily Bugle to investigate.
