Spider-Man: No Way Home has been out for over a month now, yet it's still the talk of the town! The movie premiered on December 16, 2021, and has since jumped to the number 6 spot on the All-Time Global Chart as it's brought in a whopping $1.69 billion at the box office so far. That means the hit film has surpassed the likes of Jurassic World ($1.67 billion) and The Lion King ($1.66 billion). And one thing fans can't stop talking about - aside from the money? Andrew Garfield's surprise appearance.

And the actor himself isn't over it, either. During a recent interview with Ellen DeGeneres, the iconic talk show host asked Garfield, "How many years did you lie to people?" And his answer proved this guy knows how to keep the lid on something for a long time. "I lied to people for a good two years, and I lied to the internet for two years, and it felt great," Andrew admitted. Only a few close loved ones knew the truth. "My dad, my brother, and my mother... just kind of us. It was fun to keep it secret," he added.

The 38-year-old continued: "You know when you're planning a surprise birthday party for someone? And they're like, 'I hate surprises. Tell me is the party happening? No, seriously, don't mess around because you know I hate surprises.' So it felt like I was part of organizing a surprise birthday party for a bunch of people who I knew would appreciate it." And he was right! Viewers (including us) were delighted by the legendary appearance. But one person was a little... disappointed.

Garfield previously revealed that his ex-girlfriend and Spider-Man co-star Emma Stone was also kept in the dark about the whole ordeal. "Emma kept on texting me. She was like, 'Are you in this new Spider-Man film?'" he shared on the Happy Sad Confused podcast. "And I was like, 'I don't know what you're talking about!' She was like, 'Shut up, just tell me.' And like, I honestly... I kept it going, even with her, it's hilarious." We just hope Emma doesn't hold it against him for too long! You can catch more of Andrew's hilarious interview here.
