Andrew Garfield says he is 'open' to the idea of a same-sex sexual experience. 

The Amazing Spider-Man star, who's set to appear in iconic gay play Angels in America on Broadway following a critically-acclaimed run in London last year, opened up about his sexuality in an interview with Out.

“Up until this point I’ve only been sexually attracted to women,” Garfield said. “My stance toward life, though, is that I always try to surrender to the mystery of not being in charge.

“I think most people – we’re intrinsically trying to control our experience here, and manage it, and put walls around what we are and who we are.

“I want to know as much of the garden as possible before I pass – I have an openness to any impulses that may arise within me at any time.”

Despite exhibiting an open mind when it comes to relationships, Garfield went on to clarify that he identifies as heterosexual.

“If I were to identify, I would identify as heterosexual,” he continued, “and being someone who identifies as that way, and who’s taking on this seminal role [in Angels In America], my scariest thought was, ‘Am I allowed to do this?’”
