Beloved Spidey and Golden Globe winner Andrew Garfield has confirmed a viral story from a delivery driver bringing him food when he was secretly filming Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Back in January of 2021, rumours were flying about whether or not Andrew Garfield was going to reprise his role as Peter Parker in Spider-Man: No Way Home. What inspired the rumours are numerous and nebulous, but at the time one DoorDash delivery driver’s story had people intrigued.

In a now-deleted thread, Twitter user @DrnBerry tweeted on the 21st of January: “I just delivered food to that n****r who played Spider-Man in 2014. Andrew Garfield! Bra rude asf.”

Following the tweet, an Andrew Garfield fan account replied, asking if Garfield was filming Spider-Man: No Way Home. @DrnBerry responded, “It was cool but I asked for his ID it’s protocol if we deliver alcohol we have to scan. He kinda got agitated I brushed it off,” finishing the cheeky thread with, “I was like damn that’s the n****r who dropped Gwen.”

With the cat long out of the bag regarding Garfield’s involvement in No Way Home, he confirmed that the DoorDash delivery guy’s Twitter tale was true. During a recent episode of the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Garfield told his side of the viral story.

“This is my first night in Atlanta, and I’m with two of my best friends,” Garfield said, “I ordered takeout for us, and COVID is high, and I order food. It’s literally my first night there, and it’s great. I get to wear a mask everywhere. I get to wear a hat. Nobody’s ever going to know I’m here, and I’m going to really be low-key and whatnot. So the guy comes to the door, the delivery guy — sweet seeming guy, nice seeming dude — and I open the door, I’ve got my mask on, my hat, and I’m like, ‘Thanks, man.'”

Garfield continues, “He’s like, ‘I need to see your ID.’ And I’m like, ‘No delivery food thing has ever asked me for my ID. This is interesting.’ And by the way, he’s like, kind of like really close to the door, and at this point, I’m super like, I’ve got to go to set tomorrow. I don’t want to risk shutting down a Marvel set in the middle of a pandemic. So I’m just like, ‘Sure, just one second. Would you mind just like stepping a few feet back because of COVID and everything,’ and he does. I’m like, ‘Sorry, man, why do you need my ID?’ ‘So I can check that it’s you.'”

“First of all, my DoorDash account is not my name. And he’s like, ‘Yeah, ’cause you got alcohol.’ And I’m like, ‘No, I didn’t get alcohol. I didn’t get any alcohol, man. I got some tacos.’ Lo and behold the guy goes, ‘I just I think I just delivered food to Andrew Garfield,’ and I think he called me rude, which I definitely wasn’t.

“I did ask to do social distancing, but I obviously upset the man and I didn’t mean to and I apologise for anything that may have been misconstrued as being rude. I don’t like upsetting people, but it just became this whole thing, and then I think he got in trouble. I don’t know, whatever. But wherever you are, I know what you were up to. You were being sneaky, and you gave me a good challenge that night,” finished Garfield.

Andrew Garfield recently revealed he found lying about his involvement in the Spider-Man flick “thrilling,” even revealing he lied to Amazing Spider-Man co-star, Emma Stone. Spider-Man: No Way Home is currently in cinemas.
