USMagazine – According to a new report from The New York Post’s Page Six, Andrew Garfield was supposed to present at the Oscars with Miles Scott — a.k.a. Batkid, the 5-year-old boy with cancer who played superhero in San Francisco — but “refused” to go on when he didn’t like his lines. Andrew Garfield was going to appoint him ‘Batkid,'” the insider continued. “But, in the middle of the dress rehearsal, Garfield decided he didn’t like his lines.” The source went on to say that the Spider-Man star “refused to go by the script” and instead came up with his own lines, which producers didn’t go for. “Garfield had a tantrum. He stormed off,” the source said, adding that Miles and his family “were devastated.” Ultimately, the bit was cut completely. Producers reportedly paid for Miles to go to Disneyland instead, and brought in Captain America star Chris Evans to present in Garfield’s place.
First things first. All things considered this was a HUGE win for Batkid. Like if you’re 5 years old would you rather be a presenter at the Oscars or go to Disney World? No brainer city. Like whoever decided this is what this kid wanted was being selfish in the first place. I mean what 5 year old would want to sit through that snooze fest? This was just a publicity stunt and exploiting this kid so I’m kind of glad it blew up in their faces.
Regardless, I can’t say this surprises me that much. This is what actors do. They are the most delusional, arrogant, self righteous people on the world. I mean are we really surprised Eduardo Saverin is a dickhead? For sure not.
PS – Listen I love Batkid. How could you not? But can somebody else have a fucking chance to do something fun? Like he already had his day. The entire city of SF shut down for his ass. Got to be other sick kids out there wondering why Batkid is hogging all the Make A Wish days right?
