Andrew Garfield felt like Elvis Presley when he was given the lead role in 'The Amazing Spider Man'.

The actor was resigned to not getting the part after going up against Hollywood's hottest young talent - including Jamie Bell and Aaron Johnson - for the role but ten minutes after being told he was successful he was paraded in front of the world's press, leaving him feeling like a superstar.

He said: ''I'd gotten the impression that it wasn't going to go my way. I was resigned to it. I went to see the producers having zero expectations. I imagined I'd be leaving there crying, wishing I'd chosen a different profession.

''[Being paraded in front of the press] was pretty insane. I got to feel like Elvis for a moment, which was fun.''

Meanwhile, Andrew has revealed the moment he was told of his success has been recorded on camera so fans may get to witness it someday.

He explained: ''I knocked on the door and [director] Mark Webb answered which was the first weird thing. And then I saw a little Flipcam which was recording. They were filming my reaction to not getting the role or getting the role. I hoped it wasn't cruel because that would have been f****d up.''
