A long time ago, in a city far, far away, Andrew Garfield may have made your double tall skinny half-caf latte.
The 99 Homes star stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday to talk about his new thriller, debut a new long hairdo and, because this is Hollywood, swap a few grooming tips (conditioner is a must, apparently) before Kimmel asked him about being a struggling young actor.
That’s when Garfield admitted that like many other actors, he moonlighted at Starbucks to pay the bills. At first he was pretty excited about the job. “I thought that’s the John Hughes movie I’ve been waiting to live within,” said the actor, envisioning spending his days caffeinating the “girls reading literature with black rimmed glasses” who loitered around the Golders Green outpost.
“I’m going to be the barista that woos them all and wins them all,” he recounted to Kimmel. “Or they realize after a period of months that in fact, the skinny guy is the guy to go with.” Strangely it did not work out exactly like that for him.
