Comedian turned late night television host Stephen Colbert recently hosted Golden Globe nominee and most recent Spiderman Andrew Garfield on CBS’s The Late Show. The interview began with Garfield, who is British, flattering Colbert’s political reporting. Then Colbert recapped Garfield’s two big roles of the year in Silence and Hacksaw Ridge.
Colbert then brought up a funny moment from the Golden Globes ceremony on Sunday, January 8. Garfield and fellow actor Ryan Reynolds, who were seated next to each other, shared a comical kiss when Ryan Gosling took the stage to accept his award for his role in La La Land. Garfield explained that he “wanted Ryan [Reynolds] to know he loved him whether he won or lost,” a nod to the fact that Reynolds, who was nominated for playing the title role in Deadpool, lost out to Gosling in the Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical category. Garfield was not in competition with the two Ryans because he was nominated for Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama for his role in Hacksaw Ridge.
Colbert then noted that Garfield must not mind kissing other men and joked that he is not bothered by it either. The duo then leaned in for two soft smooches to laughter and cheers from the audience. The two men were clearly trying not to burst out laughing. After some giggles they settled down and finished their interview about Garfield’s most recent film roles and who inspired him as a child.
