Andrew Garfield’s beard has gotten crazy: hipster nonsense or next-level hobo?


Emma Stone usually looks uncomfortable whenever she gets pap’d in NYC (her home city), especially when she’s with her boyfriend of several years, Andrew Garfield. But maybe she was especially uncomfortable yesterday when they got pap’d because of Andrew’s next-level hobo beard. That’s right, I said it. HOBO BEARD. At first, Andrew rocked a normal-looking beard, which sort of suited him. Then it got longer and weirder, and it just seemed like some stupid hipster trend. But it’s gotten too long for a hipster trend at this point. It’s just full-on hobo. Dear Emma: ask him to trim it, at the very least.

It could be that Andrew is growing out his hobo fur because he’s depressed. Part of the Sony Hack revealed that Andrew is very likely out of the Spider-Man franchise, which is too bad. I mean, I never watched either of Andrew’s Spider-Man movies, but I think he’s being blamed for a stupid corporate decision: they never should have rebooted the Spider-Man franchise so soon after the Tobey Maguire films, you know?

You can read more about the Spider-Man situation here. The basic gist is that for months now, Sony executives have been working behind the scenes to license Spider-Man for Marvel’s Captain America 3 and Andrew is nowhere to be found in any of the negotiations. They’ve already decided to push him out of the franchise. Once the second film failed to perform as well as expected, a third Spider-Man film was shelved indefinitely. Plus, there was some executive bitching about Andrew’s pointed comments about Sony several months ago, and he failed to show up for a Sony corporate dinner this past July. To be fair to him, he probably knew at that point that he wasn’t going to be Spider-Man for much longer. Still, that’s pretty unprofessional.

    Maybe he has an upcoming role on Duck Dynasty?

  2. Mia4S says:

    It’s likely for the movie he’s in. He’s filming “Silence” with Martin Scorsesse.

    Yeah he didn’t play the game the studio wanted so he’s out. Sadly it’s not his fault the Spider-man sequel was so bad.

      Yeah. People forget that although he holds American citizenship, he’s actually British, and the British are far more likely to be…well, fearless when it comes to stuff like expressing honest opinion, not bothering with people who have basically shoved you out of a job, etc. In other words, totally anti-Hollywood.

      Just because Cumberbatch, Hiddleston and Redmayne have all done excessive pandering to Hollywood doesn’t mean all British actors do it. Most of them don’t. I think Garfield will go back to small films, Broadway, and maybe even back to the UK for major TV. And he’ll be fine with it.

      But yeah, that beard is disgusting, role or no role.

    Maybe it’s five-thousand o’clock shadow?

  4. Hannah says:

    its more than likely for a movie. i never get that people don’t think about that when actors change their appearance.

  5. Esmom says:

    I’m guessing it’s for a role but I have seen hipsters with beards as crazy as this. It almost seems like a competition at times.

    Not being Spiderman my turn out to be the best thing that happens to him.

    If you notice most of the male stars today are all tied to one franchise or another. All of them It is a trend I can’t stand. Mainly because over the average lifetime we are going to see 10 or more Spidermans or Ironman or Superman or Batman.. boring.. boring.. boring.

    Hope this opens the door for him to work with better directors and actors.. This is a blessing..

    • Pamela says:

      I hope you are right lisa2. At this point with all the Marvel crossover movies, anyone who tales on one of those roles is going to be QUITE tied down…at the very time when they otherwise could be getting lots of varied roles. It is good steady money, but for the actors that want to act, it is a curse.

      I thought he was a good Spiderman, but the issue was that we didn’t NEED another Spiderman so soon. Tobey’s version had JUST happened, and no one was clamoring for more so soon.

      Andrew is a good actor. The only way getting knocked our of the franchose WON’t help him is if stufios see him as a liability *because* he was kicked our of a huge franchise.

    Whaaaat? The beard is the best thing he has going! My boyfriend’s sexy ginger beard is three times longer than that and women constantly want to touch it.

  8. Tig says:

    The “growing a shrub on your face for a movie”- uh, there are fake beards, so why go around looking like this? And hope he is fanatical about keeping that mess clean bec otherwise, ick!
    He’s not a bad actor, so leaving or getting dumped from SM won’t hurt him for long. I wish I could keep up with all the machinations re Sony keeping SM from Marvel, but life is too short!

  9. serena says:

    I agree with you Kaiser, they shouldn’t have made a reboot so soon. They’d really do anything for money uh? Push another trilogy of a huge franchise, just a few years after the original one is full on suicidal. Also, I don’t like Tobey Maguire that much, but he did a good job as Spiderman, I get that now he’d be too old to play the role maybe *side eye to Ben Affleck*.
    Like, I know it’s on a total different level, but imagine this: how would all Marvel fans feel if 5 years into the future all those superheroes movies were remade with different actors? I know I’ll be mad.

    Nah, the hipsters and metal heads I know with beards take really good care of them. They’re carefully groomed and well taken care of. This is not. I’d guess it’s probably for a role.

  11. santana says:

    he has really small hands. like almost feminine small. ew

  12. Blythe says:

    Beards are hot, but Andrew’s is horrible. He needs to keep it under control. Trim it. Oil it. Moisturize it. Treat it like it grew from your scalp. I’ve seen hipsters with better beards. Don’t disrespect them with this bush growing out of Andrew’s jaw.

  13. Lucy says:

    I think it’s for a movie role. If it isn’t, then I hope he’s okay.

  14. Dawn says:

    Ewww….I just don’t like facial hair like that. He must have a reason for it.

  15. roxy750 says:

    I’m going off the rails on a craaaazy traaaain….

  16. kri says:

    Get rid of that thing on your face and suck it up. You are a really good actor. The end.

  17. gilmore says:

    Lol why are people so bothered by it? Every time he has a break in between films, I’ve noticed at least, that he always looks like this. Deep inside he loves that hobo sh-t and it actually kinda suites him, I don’t mind it.

  18. maeliz says:

    My guy better not grow a rats nest like that on his face. I like a few prickles but that’s too much. Must be a little itchy
