He plays one of the world's most iconic superheroes.
But being a mere mortal in real life, poor Andrew Garfield had to put his body through hell in order to get his buff Spider-Man physique.
Speaking at Yahoo's exclusive Amazing Spider-Man 2 Q&A, the British A-lister admitted that all-day workouts left him feeling knackered (and bored.)
In reply to a young fan's question, he said: "If only I was actually Spider-Man, I wouldn’t have to do any exercises - I would just get bitten by a spider and be incredibly strong.
"But I’m a human and that’s unfortunate because I have to go to the gym 18 times day in order to have any semblance of looking like a superhero."
Talking about his *very* gruelling fitness regime in order to bulk up, the 30-year-old admitted that all became a bit dullsville after a while.
He added: "It’s a lot of weights – a lot of lifting up heavy objects and putting them back down again, then lifting them up again and putting them back down.
"And you do that about a hundred times and you get very bored."
But to battle the boredom, it seems that Andrew decided to work on his basketball skills - with the help of a certain co-star.
He continued: "I played basketball. Me and Jamie played some basketball in New York together. It was Electro Vs Spider-Man. Electro won."
Andrew added: "I also did a lot of flexibility stuff as well – a lot of yoga."
Phew - who'd have thought that being Spiderman was such hard work?!
