The actor faced criticism when he said he was "a gay man without the physical act."
Andrew Garfield is currently starring in a theatre production as a gay man and naturally he has been pretty open about his own sexuality when discussing his role, however he insists that some of his comments have been taken way out of context.
During a wider discussion about his play, Angels In America, Andrew made a comment that he was currently "a gay man without the phsyical act" which led some to jump down his throat for trivialising the matter.
Well now the 33-year-old has spoken out to defend his comments, insisting that all he meant was that he's all about fully immersing himself into the LGBTQ culture in order to do the role justice.
He said: "That's of course not what I meant at all. That discussion was about this play and how deeply grateful I am that I get to work on something so profound."
"It's a love letter to the LGBTQ community. We were talking about, "How do you prepare for something so important and so big?" and I was basically saying, I dive in as fully as I possibly can."
Tbh we can totally agree that Andrews words were misinterpreted and it's clear from the same discussion the actor is extremely honoured to be taking on his current role, which is a gay man suffering from AIDS and he described it as: "the most fulfilling creative experience I’ll ever hope to have."
Phew! Now that that's all cleared up Andrew can get back to enjoying his new show of choice, RuPaul's Drag Race of course.
Now why not head over to MTV Staying Alive to find out how you can help fight HIV around the world.

"Find your tribe".
Coming out can be difficult. Sharing your sexuality or gender identity with the people you love is often a huge (and sometimes scary) step to take.
It’s no surprise that it can take a while to get to the point where you’re ready to open up to the people in your life.
It’s a process that’s different for everyone, and preparing to come out can lead to a whole bunch of questions. Is now the right time? Who should I tell? What exactly should I be saying? And what happens if their reaction isn’t what I expected or planned for?
As you probably know, June marks LGBT+ Pride Month - find out more about why we celebrate the month here - and here at MTV we want to use it to create a safe, open space to talk about all things coming out. And hopefully try and answer some of those oh-so-tricky questions.
We’ve spoken to some incredible people who’ve chosen to share their very different, very personal coming out stories with us in just 60 seconds, and we hope they can show you all that even though it can be a tough journey, there’s nothing more freeing than being able to be honest about who you really are.
With LGBT+ celebs like RuPaul, Connor Franta and Gia Gunn, and some very vocal straight allies like Leona Lewis (and many, many more) leading the campaign, we want to show you that you’re not alone. It’s just a case of finding your tribe (thanks to Michelle Visage for that top advice).
In the words of Supermodel of the World RuPaul, “If you can, go where people appreciate that you are God’s gift to this world.”
If you want to join the movement (and maybe help someone else along the way), then submit your own 60 second coming out story on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. Just make sure you use #OUTIN60.
If you’re looking to talk to someone about your gender identity or sexuality, then you can find local LGBT youth groups and other useful contacts through Stonewall's online database What's In My Area.
