"The Amazing Spider-man" Star Andrew Garfield Watched Vivid's "Spider-Man XXX: A Porn Parody" "A few times" For "Inspiration"

 LOS ANGELES – (June 27, 2012) – Andrew Garfield, the star of the upcoming "The Amazing Spider-Man," says he has watched Axel Braun’s porn parody of the superhero movie "a few times" to get "inspiration" for his own film role. Garfield made the remarks in a Hollywood.com interview that has now gone viral.

Speaking of "Spider-ManXXX: A Porn Parody," a sexy spoof created by award-winning adult director Braun, Garfield told Hollywood.com, "I watched it a few times.  I watched it more from an inspirational stand point than from a sexual standpoint. I think you can find inspiration from anywhere when it comes to this character because it’s everyone’s; it belongs to everyone..."

"The Amazing Spider-Man" opens in theaters on July 3rd. The parody was released last year by Vivid Entertainment, the world’s leading adult film studio. It became an instant best-seller, and won a slew of awards. A sequel, "Superman Vs. Spider-ManXXX," based on the famous 1976 Marvel/DC mash-up, is scheduled for release in the fall.

"This is totally awesome," said Braun after viewing the viral video of the interview. "It goes a long way to validate my efforts to reach out to a different demographic than the typical porn consumer, and to do justice to a character that I love. Thank you Andrew for the massive ego stroke."

Steven Hirsch, founder/co-CEO of Vivid, said "It really shows how far the quality of our movies has come when a Hollywood actor acknowledges a triple X porn parody for inspiration.  I admire and respect Andrew’s candor, and I’m looking forward to seeing his version of Spider-Man on the big screen."
