One of the worst-kept secrets in Hollywood last year belonged to Spider-Man: No Way Home. The film revolves around a spell gone wrong that brings in villains from other wall-crawling dimensions—specifically those seen in the last two generations of Spidey movies. While the likes of Willem Dafoe and Alfred Molina were revealed, an important question remained: will fans see the return of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield as their respective Spider-Men?

The answer was yes, but Sony firmly wanted to keep the secret. Despite leaks upon leaks, the studio wouldn’t cave in. Even after actual images from the film surfaced, they still wouldn’t budge.

No one, however, took the job of protecting the secrets more seriously than Andrew Garfield himself. The actor denied his involvement with the film vehemently countless times prior to its release. One of the most infamous interviews of him doing so includes a bit of him comparing it all to being a werewolf in the popular lying game.

Now the actor has been able to sit down and watch his performance himself, with his reaction caught on video.

On Josh Horowitz’s Happy Sad Confused Podcast, the host put Andrew Garfield in front of his infamous ‘Werewolf’ interview and recorded his reaction as he watched himself try to sell the lie that he was not involved with Spider-Man: No Way Home at all.

In the video, Garfield is clearly getting second-hand embarrassment as he watches his Werewolf metaphor, as he goes on to jokingly accuse Horowitz of entrapment.

Garfield... Werewolf at Night?

The moment Garfield gave this original interview, fans knew it would come back around sometime after the film was released. After all, even with the consistent denials, it had become an all but confirmed fact that he was returning in NWH.

It was entertaining to see Garfield get to react live to his performance in trying to dance his way around spoilers. With how strongly he denied it all, there was no way he wasn’t going to have to face it.

The actor has gone on record saying that he enjoyed the experience—that it truly became a big game. He even kept the lie going for close friends such as Emma Stone.

Hopefully, Garfield gets to make more Spider-Man appearances; maybe then he can be a little less secretive about it all. Spider-Man: No Way Home is playing in theaters worldwide.
