Social media isn’t nourishing, feels Andrew Garfield

Andrew Garfield said he does not like to use social media sites too much because he feels they hardly contribute in personal development. “It doesn’t seem nourishing,” he told The Sunday Times’ Culture magazine.

The 34-year-old actor also revealed the “different experiences” of fame he has encountered. “There are different experiences I have. The best is when you come out of the stage door and someone hands you a letter in which they thanked me for saving their life. That is the best part of fame. Then there is this weird idolising, and I relate because there are people I meet where I say, ‘You’re a god’, and feel them getting incredibly uncomfortable. If I was in the presence of any of those (Mahatama Gandhi, Lamar, Rylance], it would take me a while to be at ease (especially Gandhi) because he’s dead,” he said.
