Andrew Garfield Run Naked to Celebrate 'Spider-Man' Casting
'The Social Network' actor makes the joke when sharing how excited he was upon learning that he has landed the coveted part in 'The Amazing Spider-Man'.
has joked he celebrated his "Spider-Man" casting by running around naked. The 27-year-old actor, who has replaced as the web-slinging hero in the upcoming fourth movie, "", couldn't believe it when he received the news that he had landed the part he coveted since he was four years old.

"I just blacked out and ran around naked for a while or something," he joked. "Ha! I tried to climb walls and stuff and broke my wrist, no not really. I never expected to get it because it's something that you dream about when you're four years old and how often does reality match up with a dream."

"Never, but I've been very, very lucky. You never think you're going to get a chance to portray a symbol that has meant so much to you since you were old enough to understand the concept of justice. It's just an incredible thing."

However despite his excitement, "" star is trying not to think about the new role too much because it will "freak" him out. He said, "I've been very lucky and if I analyze it too much it freaks me out.
