Andrew Garfield is letting his future be a mystery. Last summer the 34-year-old actor sparked controversy after saying he was "a gay man...without the physical act," while promoting the play, Angels in America. This March in the upcoming Broadway revival, he will reprise his role as Prior Walter, a gay man battling AIDS during the 1980s crisis.

"I think part of what I was trying to say was about inclusion, and about that openness to my impulses," he said.

Andrew admits that he hasn't ruled out the possibility of being sexually attracted to a man one day. "Up until this point, I've only been sexually attracted to women. My stance toward life, though, is that I always try to surrender to the mystery of not being in charge."

"I think most people — we're intrinsically trying to control our experience here, and manage it, and put walls around what we are and who we are. I want to know as much of the garden as possible before I pass— I have an openness to any impulses that may arise within me at any time," he continued. "But, if I were to identify, I would identify as heterosexual, and being someone who identifies that way, and who's taking on this seminal role, my scariest thought was, 'Am I allowed to do this?'"
