Andrew Garfield felt like Elvis Presley when he was given the lead role in The Amazing Spider-Man.
The actor was resigned to not getting the part after going up against Hollywood's hottest young talent — including Jamie Bell and Aaron Johnson — for the role but 10 minutes after being told he was successful he was paraded in front of the world's press, leaving him feeling like a superstar.
He said: "I'd gotten the impression that it wasn't going to go my way. I was resigned to it. I went to see the producers having zero expectations. I imagined I'd be leaving there crying, wishing I'd chosen a different profession.
"[Being paraded in front of the press] was pretty insane. I got to feel like Elvis for a moment, which was fun."
Meanwhile, Garfield has revealed the moment he was told of his success has been recorded on camera so fans may get to witness it someday.
He explained: "I knocked on the door and [director] Mark Webb answered which was the first weird thing. And then I saw a little Flipcam which was recording. They were filming my reaction to not getting the role or getting the role. I hoped it wasn't cruel because that would have been f****d up."
