Andrew Garfield says it was fun lying to journalists about #SpiderManNoWayHome. “It was like this massive game of Werewolf that I was playing with journalists and with people guessing, and it was very fun…” he said.

The Golden Globe winner also revealed that Sony Pictures advised him to “keep it quiet” over his infamously leaked set photos that The Tonight Show star Jimmy Fallon interrogated the actor with:

“I’m working so hard here to stay secret, and then here’s an image of me with Tobey! And Sony’s like, ‘No, no, we’re gonna keep it quiet.’ ‘OK, I’ll keep denying it.'”
