Andrew Garfield says that The Amazing Spider Man was like 'any other acting job'.
The British actor fought off stiff competition to land the role of Peter Parker in Marc Webb's reboot of the popular franchise - a role that he had always dreamed of playing.
But the actor quickly found out that it may have been a dream role but the reality was shooting was the same as any other movie.
Speaking to the Radio Times the actor said: "To achieve what you set out to achieve and realise it's not what you want, it's disappointing.
"This role had been something I'd always, always wanted to do. Then you realise it's like any other acting job.
"Some days it's great, others you feel lost. And I'd always felt that if I got certain roles then I'd be set for life, emotionally, professionally. It would be Utopia. But you never get to Utopia.
"The dream has become reality."
Garfield's star is set to rocket this summer with the release of the movie which sees the story taken right back to the beginning.
The movie sees him team up with Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Sally Field and Martin Sheen.
The Amazing Spider Man is released 3rd July.
