Revealed! Why Andrew Garfield Missed The Oscars
The Spider-Man star was set to present at the ceremony...
The reason for Andrew Garfield's no-show at the Oscars on Sunday has finally been revealed.
The 30-year old actor was set to present at the ceremony in Hollywood, his name featuring on the list of presenters scheduled to attend.
On the night, however, the Spider-Man star was a no-show and Captain America - aka Chris Evans - flew in at the last minute to present a montage about superheroes - in keeping with the ceremony's theme of 'heroes' - instead.
The reason for Andrew's absence has now been revealed and, unsurprisingly, it's because he was doing a good deed.
Andrew had been set to introduce to the audience not only the montage but also a young cancer survivor nicknamed 'Batkid'.
While Batkid - whose real name is Miles Scott - and Andrew rehearsed the segment before the live show, it was ultimately cut at the last minute by producers.
"Due to the nature of a live show, hard decisions sometimes must be made which require the Academy to cut segments due to the logistics of production," a spokesman for the Oscars told E! News.
"Andrew Garfield understood that his segment had to be omitted, and he drove to Disneyland on Monday to spend time with 5-year-old Miles Scott (Batkid) and his family."
