But this is a job for which I get paid,” said the smiling actor. “And in the case of this film, in addition to the salary I got invaluable experience, which quickly lowers from heavens on the earth.”

Maybe I’m paranoid, but depend on their phone I definitely don’t want: I only need it for rare calls.”
As the actor spoke about his life achievements. “It may sound corny, but my greatest achievement is a good relationship with his father. To achieve this, I had to put a lot of effort. We had a lot of resentments and misunderstandings, but we were able to accept each other with all faults. It’s requires great courage in any relationship is to see a real person, not your ideas about it. Now I can proudly say that my father is my close friend. This achievement means more to me than all the awards.” says Garfield.
