Phew, Andrew Garfield is the hero we all thought he was; all is right in the world! On Sunday, the 30-year-old actor was noticeably absent from the live broadcast of the 86th Annual Academy Awards, leaving many to suspect that he’d ditched his skit with 5-year-old Miles Scott (a.k.a. Batkid), a cancer survivor who is currently in remission. Page Six even went so far as to suggest that “in the middle of the dress rehearsal, Garfield decided he didn’t like his lines. Garfield refused to go by the script. He came up with his own lines. The producers felt that Garfield’s [rewrites] were not appropriate. Garfield had a tantrum. He stormed off. Miles and his family, who were at the rehearsal, were devastated.”

Since then though, Us Weekly dig some digging and learned that the New York Post article was far from the truth. The Amazing Spider-Man actor’s rep, Rupert Fowler, says in a statement, “In full collaboration with the Academy and the show writer, Andrew prepared a segment for the Oscars to honor Miles Scott as the true hero that he is. At some point overnight on Saturday/Sunday morning, it was decided by those running the show that the segment didn’t work in the ceremony.”

The two were “equally upset,” but, despite the change, Andrew still spent time with the young hero: “The producers arranged for Miles and his family to visit Disneyland on Monday and Andrew drove down to visit them and to bring Miles a personal gift. Andrew did the right thing for Batkid and anyone saying otherwise is flat out lying.”
