Andrew Garfield: I threw up in Prince’s loo
ANDREW GARFIELD says he knew he had hit the big time when he found himself ‘puking in Prince’s toilet’ as Hollywood A-listers waited outside.
Andrew — wearing a newly purchased suit from budget chain H&M — emerged green-faced from the late singer’s bathroom to find Salma Hayek and Penélope Cruz queuing up to go in after him.
Recalling his memorable first night out in Tinseltown, soon after auditioning for Robert Redford’s 2007 film Lions For Lambs, he said: ‘I was staying on my manager’s assistant’s couch in West Hollywood, and he was like, “Hey, you need to get a suit for tonight. You’re gonna be my plus-one to all these Golden Globe parties.”
‘I was like, “I don’t wanna do that, but okay.” I was in H&M, trying on a suit, and I got a call from my agent telling me that I had just got the part opposite Robert Redford.
‘I went out that night with a very, very different attitude than I had previously had, and ended up at one of those silly parties.
‘I was in line with Salma Hayek and Penélope Cruz, just in front of them. So I went in and didn’t know I was gonna vomit, but as soon as I got in there, I realised that I was gonna vomit. And I vomited.’
It was a humiliating introduction to his future colleagues, Andrew, 34, confessed to W magazine. ‘I came out very sheepishly knowing these two beautiful Latina women had to go where I had just tarnished the sacred space of Prince’s bathroom.’
